[adrotate group=”25″]This betting tip is slightly risky due Matt Mitrione’s devastating knock out power, but the odds on Shawn Jordan to win are too good to turn down, as Jordan has several major advantages in this fight.
Shawn Jordan is 6 years younger than Matt Mitrione and this makes a massive difference, especially in the UFC’s Heavyweight division. At 29 years old Jordan is fighting in the peak of his career, whilst at 35 years old, Mitrione’s performances will start to decline. Maybe that’s the reason why all 3 of Mitrione’s career losses have come in his last 4 fights.
Matt Mitrione also has a habit of turning fights into crazy wars and epic slugfests. In the heat of battle when fighters are exchanging strikes, it’s very hard for them to stick to a gameplan and fight smart. Matt Mitrione is a guy who fights on instinct and that puts him at a massive disadvantage in this fight. Shawn Jordan is an experienced South Paw striker, which means that Mitrione’s Orthodox stance will see him naturally circle towards Jordan’s power left hand. Mitrione will have to concentrate really hard on his movement or he’s going to get knocked out on Saturday night.
Even experienced fighters get caught out by the Southpaw advantage and Mitrione’s weaknesses play right into the hands of a Southpaw striker. If Mitrione was a little more composed and a little more experienced, it might not be such a huge factor, but you cannot deny the fact that he fights on instinct and he’s relatively inexperienced with only 9 pro fights.
If Mitrione does start to get the better of the striking exchanges, Jordan could take this fight to the ground where he has a significant advantage over Mitrione.
Matt Mitrione’s chin is also questionable and at 35 years old his chin is only going to get worse. I fancy Shawn Jordan to win this fight by knock out, but there is some risk involved in this bet, due to Mitrione’s heavy hands and reach advantage. The only way Mitrione will win this fight, is if he manages to knock out Jordan within the first two rounds. There’s no way that Mitrione will be able to beat Jordan via a decision. As a result you should place a bet on Shawn Jordan to win and also place a cover bet on this fight to last less than 2.5 rounds. Just be sure to bet enough on the cover bet, so that it covers your stake on Shawn Jordan to win.
