The UFC betting lines have Daron Cruickshank down as a big favourite against Mike Rio and I’d have to agree with them. It’s difficult to see any way that he losses this fight. The odds are quite small on him to win, but its definitely worth a bet to make us some easy money. You can find the best value odds over at [adrotate group=”19″], who are currently offering odds of around 1.44 [-225 or 4/9] on a Cruickshank win.
Mike Rio has lost his last two fights and I can’t see it getting any better for him on Saturday night. His main strength is his striking, but that’s not going to help him against Cruickshank, who is a far superior striker.
Rio’s biggest weakness is his grappling and he seriously lacks takedown defence. He’s lost his last two fights by submission and even though Cruickshank is predominantly a striker, he does have legitimate skills on the ground and it could be a short night for Rio, if Cruickshank chooses to take him down.
Cruickshank has such a big advantage in this fight, that it doesn’t really matter where it goes. If he’s smart he will take this fight to the ground and look to submit Rio, but I have a feeling he will stick to what he knows best and use his superior striking skills to pick apart Rio and win this fight comfortably.
