UFCPicksAndTips UFC 256 Picks
Kevin Holland VS Jacare Souza
Holland has never beaten a top 15 opponent in the UFC, and to be honest he’s probably not even a top 20 fighter in his division. He was submitted by Brendan Allen, and against Meerschart you saw him make mistake after mistake in the guard which won’t fly with a BJJ world champion (the last BJJ world champ, Rafael Lovato Jr, he faced subbed him in under a round.) Souza’s last two losses were a split decision loss to the light heavyweight champion and a poor showing against Hermansson. I’m taking Souza by finish at +340.
Deiveson Figueiredo vs Alex Moreno
Moreno is legit but Figgy will hold this belt until he retires or decides to move up. Every one of his title defenses has finished in under 1½ rounds and I really don’t see anything that Moreno brings to the table other than his great scrambling ability. But Figueiredo is an anaconda when he gets ahold of your neck and he has one punch power at 125. Under 1½ rounds at +250 is the move.So you can parlay these picks for +1400 odds or you can rock the singles. I always parlay my write ups!
