Lorenz Larkin is a fighter with a lot of hype surrounding him. The betting lines have him down as a MASSIVE favourite in this fight, which presents us with a great opportunity to back the underdog, who is a tough opponent for anyone in the UFC’s Middleweight division.
Lorenz Larkin has only had one fight in the UFC, losing a decision to Francis Carmont. Prior to that he fought in Strikeforce where he was undefeated with 13 consecutive wins.
Larkin is a great fighter, but in all honesty he looked pretty bad in his last fight and hasn’t fought anyone as tough as Chris Camozzi.
Camozzi also lost his last fight against Ronaldo Souza, but before that he was riding a 4 fight winning streak, picking up victories over tough opponents like Nick Ring and Luiz Cane.
The odds for this fight should be a lot closer than they are. If Lorenz Larkin shows up and fights to his potential, then Camozzi is in a lot of trouble, but Larkin has yet to live up to his hype in the UFC. Camozzi is the kind of guy who is difficult to finish and grinds out wins. He’s got a good ground game, good takedown defence and he can mix it up with his striking. [divider]
Don’t get carried away with the Larkin hype train. This is a very tough fight for him.
Chris Camozzi is a veteran UFC fighter with a lot more experience in the Octagon. He also has a significant reach advantage over Larkin with a solid ground game.
With the odds being so good on Camozzi, we’d be crazy not to take a chance on him.
