UFC: Diaz vs Pettis Odds Analysis

It’s been almost 3 years since we’ve seen Nate Diaz at the Octagon, but he makes his return against Anthony”Showtime” Pettis at the co-main event at UFC 241 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California on August 18. Pettis produced his UFC welterweight introduction last time out in March, making the jump from lightweight, and he became the first man to knock Stephen Thompson. Online sportsbook BetOnline has put the likelihood as a pick’em with both fighters sitting in -115. Anthony Pettis has been around a win-one, lose-one streak on his last seven fights and has not earned back-to-back successes because he won five in a row by 2011 to 2014. He has been an underdog in each of the last three fights and had close to pick’em chances in his weight reduction to Dustin Poirier in November 2017. Diaz has not been favored to Josh Thomson at 2013. He cried as a +315 underdog vs Michael Johnson and also a +300 underdog in his battle. Pettis was the more active fighter recently so in the event that you believe in ring rust, then there is tremendous value on Showtime. These are excellent grappling abilities, two fighters, with cardio and good. Pettis is more creative and contains really solid kicks, while Diaz is long and that he mocks his competitors if they step backwards as he’d rather get into a phone booth and exchange hands. Diaz does a tremendous job throwing flurries and combinations . The path to success for Pettis is attacking the lead leg of Diaz, although I feel that the Stockton native needs to back Showtime against the fence and wear on him with punches in bunches and clinch work to deserve the win.
