Betting Tip 1: Augusto Sakai vs Cheick Kongo Over 1.5 rounds
Heavyweight fights rarely go the distance, but Cheick Kongo and Augusto Sakai are two very defensive minded fighters who rarely take risks.
Kongo and Sakai also have passive styles of fighting and they lack the urgency to pursue a finish. This is backed up by the fact that Cheick Kongo’s last 5 fights have gone the distance. 3 of Sakai’s last 5 fights have gone the distance but his last 6 fights have all lasted longer than 1.5 rounds.
I expect this fight to be a passive snoozefest with someone winning a trademark Bellator split decision when it’s all said and done…
