UFC Fight Predictions & Betting Tips

The purpose of this UFC Fight Predictions & Betting Tips is to establish a track record of fight predictions and the outcome. While the Puncher’s Chance can happen at any second it is also impossible to predict every outcome of every fight, but the intention is to show my Betting Tips, and the outcome based on the odds. Though I got Ruthless Robbie Lawler’s fight correct last week, I cannot add it now. So let’s start the predictions and the Bitcoin Macroeconomics Betting Tips today.

Cormier v Jones (Saturday, July 9th, 2016)

    Latest Odds

Daniel Cormier @3.05
Jon Jones @1.32

    Prediction

Cormier lost the first fight. There was no stopping in him, he just didn’t win. Jones has proven to be the champ and that he is naturally gifted at the sport of MMA. Given the odds, Bitcoin Macroeconomics is picking Cormier. This will prove to be a decent bet given the odds and now for my reasoning. I agree with Cormier. Jones had it all in the palm of his hands and made several mistakes including doing drugs and failing drug tests he knew were coming, this is unbecoming of a champ and it will be seen as a LOSS, this one goes to Cormier who remained in the gym and you can tell he’s focused more on diet and exercise and has converted to more lean muscle mass. That mat time vs Jones throwing away the eye of the tiger will be the determining factor. Cormier.

Lesnar v Hunt (Saturday, July 9th, 2016)

    Latest Odds

Brock Lesnar @2.28
Mark Hunt @1.54

    Prediction

I have seen a guy that went to my high school pack Brock Lesnar so I have seen Lesnar wobble and nearly break. Imagine when Mark Hunt packs him. Lesnar should stick to Big Time Wrestling. Hunt will destroy him. Expect Hunt to get in Lesnar’s head. Expect Lesnar to lose by KO. Hunt is not getting any younger, but will prove Lesnar isn’t worthy, and stamina will not factor in my opinion, as Hunt will see how Lesnar will quit if not get KOd. Lesnar doesn’t have it in him. Hunt.

Lawler v Condit (Saturday, January 2nd, 2016)

Latest Odds

Robbie Lawler @1.82

Carlos Condit @1.97

Prediction

Condit. Lawler is no longer a Wrestler/Brawler. He is a Muay Thai Fighter that has an impressive resume in MMA and the UFC. He no longer just brawls to the point of burning out his gas tank, no. He is much more poised and that has come from experience. He is well trained. That being said, Condit is also skilled and trains hard. Condit is beatable, but I have to make a prediction. All things considered and matchup, I have to say that cardio will win this fight in later rounds, giving the edge to Condit. Condit will have no problem bringing the Muay Thai but is accomplished on the ground. Keeping Lawler from pounding his face in will not prove an easy feat, though proper defense and rubber guard may ease the plethora, if not result in a submission, but I think it will come down to a hard fought fight, more of a chess match than a war, but I believe cardio will play the determining role here. Bet on Condit.

UFC 195, January 2nd, 2016 is a big event. This fight is for the welterweight title. This will prove to be an interesting match up.

Robbie Lawler, a southpaw,(26-10 MMA, 11-4 UFC) in my opinion started out as a wrestler and a brawler. He was introduced to the sport via Pat Miletich at the age of 16 and became well trained via Miletich Fighting Systems. He has amassed a huge resume as a warrior and it has become quite impressive, as I will detail. But as time has gone on, he has improved his Muay Thai and has grown from a brawler to a seasoned mixed martial artist.

Carlos Condit (30-8 MMA, 7-4 UFC) in my opinion started off like anybody else in the sport of MMA but has shown absolute dedication to the sport via constant self improvement and fitness. Part of winning the fight is the later rounds and cardio counts. To rise to the shot at the title isn’t an easy endeavor and his fight record is not perfect. But it’s that absolute dedication that has taken him to this level and that mat time and that heart of a lion are what has risen him to the occasion.

I was doing some research on Lawler and was amazed to see it in a snapshot. According to Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robbie_Lawler

Lawler defended his EliteXC Middleweight Championship against Scott Smith at EliteXC: Primetime on May 31, 2008, at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, which ended in a no contest after Smith caught an accidental finger in the eye from Lawler.[6]

On July 26, 2008, Lawler and Scott Smith had their rematch at EliteXC: Unfinished Business. Lawler defeated Smith by TKO in the second round.
Strikeforce

After defeating Scott Smith, Lawler’s employers, EliteXC, announced that they would be shutting down and filing for bankruptcy. Lawler’s contract was picked up by Strikeforce with his first bout under the Strikeforce banner on June 6, 2009 against Jake Shields. The bout was fought at a catchweight of 182 lb. Lawler lost via submission due to a guillotine choke at 2:02 of the first round.

Lawler faced K-1 veteran Melvin Manhoef on January 30, 2010 at Strikeforce: Miami.[7] During the bout, Lawler suffered significant damage to his leg which Manhoef inflicted using leg kicks. In dramatic fashion, Lawler came back to win by knockout late in the first round with a right hook punch.

Lawler was expected to face Jason Miller on June 16, 2010 at Strikeforce: Los Angeles but Lawler instead faced former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Renato Sobral in a 195 lbs. Catchweight bout.[8] Lawler had two unsuccessful attempts to meet the 195 lbs mark at the Strikeforce: Los Angeles Weigh Ins, but was finally booked for the fight weighting 195.5 pounds, after stepping on the scale for the third time.

Return to UFC

Lawler returned to the Welterweight division and faced Josh Koscheck on February 23, 2013 at UFC 157.[14] He won via first round TKO. Koscheck visibly protested the stoppage, but replay footage showed he was not defending himself in a dangerous position, as Lawler landed repeated blows. The finish earned him the Knockout of the Night bonus.

Lawler was expected to face former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Tarec Saffiedine on July 27, 2013 at UFC on Fox 8.[15] However, Saffiedine was forced out of the bout with an injury and was replaced by Siyar Bahadurzada.[16] Then on July 11, it was announced that Bahadurzada also pulled out of the bout and was replaced by Bobby Voelker.[17] Lawler won the fight via knockout in the second round.

Lawler next faced Rory MacDonald at UFC 167.[18] He won the fight via split decision.

On December 13, 2013 news came that Georges St-Pierre would be taking an indefinite break from MMA and vacate the UFC Welterweight Championship.[19] Following the announcement, Dana White announced that Lawler would face Johny Hendricks on March 15, 2014 at UFC 171 for the vacated title.[20] Lawler lost the close back-and-forth bout via unanimous decision. Despite the loss, the fight earned Lawler his first Fight of the Night bonus award.[21]

Lawler faced Matt Brown in a 5 round Welterweight title eliminator bout on July 26, 2014 at UFC on Fox 12.[23] He won the fight via unanimous decision. The win also earned him a Fight of the Night bonus award.[24]
UFC Welterweight Champion

A rematch with Rory MacDonald took place on July 11, 2015 at UFC 189.[27] Lawler retained his title in the fifth round via TKO.[28] The back and forth action earned both participants Fight of the Night honors.[29] The fight was considered an instant classic by fans and media alike with UFC President Dana White hailing it as one of the best welterweight fights in the promotion’s history.[30]

Lawler was expected to face Carlos Condit on November 15, 2015 at UFC 193.[31] However, the bout was scrapped from the event after Lawler suffered a thumb injury.[32] The pairing is expected to remain in tact and has been rescheduled as the headliner at UFC 195 on Januay 2, 2016.[33]

Early life

Condit attended Cibola High School on Albuquerque’s West Side.[6] He began wrestling at the age of nine and continued throughout high school, and started training in Gaidojutsu under Greg Jackson at fifteen.[7]
Mixed martial arts
Background and early career (2002–2006)

Carlos Condit turned professional at eighteen years old, taking less than a minute to submit Nick Roscorta with a rear-naked choke in his debut Juárez, Mexico on September 6, 2002. He also won his next four fights in the first round, with only one going past the one minute mark, before tasting defeat for the first time, albeit under the shoot boxing ruleset, in his international debut. He faced off with ninety-five fight veteran and Shoot Boxing World Tournament 2002 champion Andy Souwer in Tokyo, Japan on September 23, 2003, losing by technical knockout with seventeen seconds left of the fight after being knocked down three times in the fifth and final round.

Returning to MMA, Condit continued his impressive run of form in the sport with a further three first round stoppage wins to go 8–0 before he was submitted with a Carlo Prater triangle choke inside the opening round in Albuquerque on September 11, 2004. He rebounded from the loss with a four fight win streak and returned to Japan to fight in Pancrase, losing to Satoru Kitaoka via first round heel hook submission at Pancrase: Spiral 8 in Yokohama on October 2, 2005. Following this, he had a stint in the Hawaii-based Rumble on the Rock promotion and defeated Ross Ebañez via TKO in his promotional debut before going on to compete in the ROTR Welterweight Tournament. The tournament’s quarter-finals were held on January 20, 2006 at Rumble on the Rock 8 where Condit recorded a seventeen second TKO stoppage of Renato Verissimo. The semis and the final both took place on the same night, April 21, 2006, at Rumble on the Rock 9 and Condit submitted Frank Trigg with a triangle choke/armbar hybrid to book his place in the final against Jake Shields. Going the distance for the first time in his career, Condit lost by unanimous decision.

Condit suffered a second consecutive loss in his next outing, submitting to a Pat Healy rear-naked choke in round three of their contest in Oakland, California, before making a return to Pancrase and defeating Koji Oishi via TKO in his sophomore appearance in the promotion. He ended his tenure in Japan with a Kimura submission of Takuya Wada and a particularly violent stomp KO over Tatsunori Tanaka before returning stateside and joining the WEC.
World Extreme Cagefighting (2007–2008)

Condit made his debut for the WEC on January 20, 2007 at WEC 25 where he defeated Kyle Jensen in the first round via submission (Rear Naked Choke).

Condit’s second fight would be for the vacant WEC Welterweight Championship against John Alessio at WEC 26. Condit would win this fight in the second round, once again, by Rear Naked Choke and became the WEC Welterweight Champion.[8]

Condit faced Brock Larson on August 5, 2007 at WEC 29.[9] Condit won the fight via first round submission (armbar).[10]

Condit would next face Carlo Prater in a rematch on February 13, 2008 at WEC 32.[11] Condit defeated Prater via submission in the first round.[12]

Condit faced Hiromitsu Miura on August 3, 2008 at WEC 35. Condit won the back and forth fight via TKo in the fourth round, winning Fight of the Night honors.[13]

A rematch with Brock Larson was briefly linked to WEC 39.[14] The pairing was scrapped as both fighters suffered injuries and were eventually reboked with different opponents as they transferred to the UFC.[15] Condit would be the last ever WEC Welterweight Champion after the UFC dissolved the title and division. Condit’s record in the WEC would end at a perfect 5–0.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (2009–present)

Condit would make the move to UFC after the WEC buyout and he made his debut in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) organization. He made his promotional debut on April 1, 2009 at UFC Fight Night 18 facing Martin Kampmann.[16] Condit lost the back and forth fight via split decision.[17] The fight was close enough that FightMetric ruled the bout a draw.

He was then scheduled to fight Chris Lytle on September 16, 2009, at UFC Fight Night 19, but Lytle had to drop out due to a knee injury.[18] UFC newcomer Jake Ellenberger would step up to replace Lytle.[19] Condit then defeated Ellenberger via split decision to get his first win in the UFC.

Condit later had to drop out of a scheduled fight at UFC 108 against Paul Daley due to a hand injury.[20]

Condit defeated Rory MacDonald via third-round TKO at UFC 115[21] in a bout that earned the Fight of the Night award. Although MacDonald seemed to get the better of the first two rounds with effective striking and takedowns, Condit came back with a more aggressive attitude in the final round, finishing MacDonald with a combination of elbows and short punches.[22][23]

Condit faced Dan Hardy on October 16, 2010, at UFC 120.[24] In the first round, Condit connected with a powerful left hook during an exchange, which dropped Hardy. Condit then landed two punches to Hardy on the ground before the referee stopped the fight at 4:27 of the first round. This victory made Condit the first man to defeat Hardy by way of KO and also earned him Knockout of the Night honours.[25][26]

Condit was expected to face Chris Lytle on February 27, 2011, at UFC 127.[27] However, Condit was forced from the bout after suffering a knee injury while training[28] and he was replaced by promotional newcomer Brian Ebersole.[29]

Condit faced Dong Hyun Kim on July 2, 2011, at UFC 132.[30] Condit won the fight via first round knockout (flying knee and punches) earning Knockout of the Night honors.[31][32] This fight gave Kim his first professional MMA loss.

Condit was expected to face B.J. Penn on October 29, 2011 at UFC 137.[33] However, UFC president Dana White announced at the UFC 137 press conference that Condit would no longer face Penn and instead replace Nick Diaz, who had failed to show up for any event related press appearances, and face Georges St-Pierre for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 137.[34] On October 18, 2011, it was announced that St. Pierre had pulled out of the fight due to a knee injury.[35] After conferring with his management and UFC officials, Condit elected not to compete against a replacement fighter at UFC 137, but face St. Pierre in early 2012.[36][37] However, after Diaz defeated Penn at UFC 137, officials decided to have St. Pierre fight Diaz at UFC 143.[38]

Condit was expected to face Josh Koscheck on February 4, 2012 at UFC 143.[39] However, due to a knee injury sustained by St. Pierre, Condit faced Diaz at the event, with the winner being awarded an interim UFC Welterweight Championship.[40] Condit defeated Diaz via unanimous decision to win the UFC Interim Welterweight Championship.[41]

Condit faced Georges St-Pierre on November 17, 2012, at UFC 154.[42] Condit became only the second man to knockdown St. Pierre in the UFC when he dropped him with a head kick early in the third round and swarmed him, but was unable to finish. He ultimately lost the fight via unanimous decision in a back and forth battle which earned both participants Fight of the Night honors for their performance.[43] After the bout, St-Pierre stated Condit was the best fighter he’s ever fought.

Condit was expected to face Rory MacDonald in a rematch on March 16, 2013, at UFC 158.[44] However, MacDonald pulled out of the bout citing an injury, and was replaced by Johny Hendricks.[45] While Condit was able to outstrike Hendricks significantly for the majority of the fight, Hendricks was able to score multiple takedowns in each round, earning Hendricks a unanimous decision victory. Their performance earned both participants Fight of the Night honors.[46]

Condit faced Martin Kampmann in a rematch on August 28, 2013 at UFC Fight Night 27.[47] After a first round which saw Kampmann control the action with his wrestling, Condit was able to utilize his more varied arsenal of strikes for the remainder of the bout to get the TKO in the fourth round via a series of punches and knees, avenging his previous loss.[48] The fight also earned Condit his third consecutive (and fourth overall) Fight of the Night bonus award.[49]

Condit was expected to face Matt Brown on December 14, 2013 at UFC on Fox 9.[50] However, in the week leading up to the event, Brown pulled out of the bout citing a back injury.[51] As a result, Condit was removed form the card as well.[52]

Condit next fought Tyron Woodley in the co-main event at UFC 171.[53] In round two, Woodley landed on Condit’s right knee on a takedown. The referee stood the fight up for inactivity, and when Condit tried to step away after Woodley kicked his left knee, his right buckled, causing him to collapse in agony and the referee to award Woodley a TKO.[54] An MRI confirmed that Condit had suffered a torn ACL and partially torn meniscus which would require surgery.[55]

After over a year away from the sport due to his knee injury, Condit returned to face Thiago Alves on May 30, 2015 in the main event at UFC Fight Night 67.[56] Condit was successful in his return, winning the fight via TKO after the cage-side doctor ended the contest between the second and third round due to the amount of damage Alves had taken.[57][58]

Condit was expected to face current champion Robbie Lawler on November 15, 2015 at UFC 193.[59] However, the bout was scrapped from the event after Lawler suffered a thumb injury.[60] The pairing is expected to remain in tact and has been rescheduled as the headliner at UFC 195 on Januay 2, 2016.[61]
Personal life

Condit is of German and Mexican descent.[62] Condit’s father, Brian, was the Chief of Staff for former New Mexico governor and Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson.[63] Condit married his longtime girlfriend, Seager Marie McCullah,[64] in December 2010.[65] The couple welcomed their first child, a son, in March 2010.[66]

The MMA Valor 2012 Year End Awards

These are two skilled fighters and both know adversity. Both have well rounded skills and yet different arsenals. Bitcoin Macroeconomics will be making a prediction on this fight. I believe it will come down to determination.

vs


Cormier v Gustafsson

Prediction

Cormier. Although Gustafsson is a world contender and is proven in his skill set and has the lankiness and range and a kick that is right there in your face, Bitcoin Macroeconomics is taking Cormier. The dog fight in Cormier and the heart of a wrestler will always win out. What Cormier will do is close the distance and where Gustafsson has the range and the kick that is right there, Cormier has the ability to take down with those legs right there. What Cormier has, not necessarily a double or single leg takedown, but the ability and power to lift and slam and that is a huge possibility in this fight. Cormier is always looking for that and this is a show ender as we are well aware. Also, Cormier has the power to take Gustafsson out of his game and range again by taking him to the fence and this is where Cormier may also punish Gustafsson and make him look far outclassed, but I believe it will be the wrestler in Cormier that takes out Gustafsson in a punishing array.

Winner

Cormier. Split Decision

Latest Odds

Cormier @ 1.27
Gustafsson @ 3.4

It’s tough to make any Bitcoin, DASH, or Doge on this fight, but look for other options for first round victory or KO, TKO, etc. Don’t be afraid to take the odds for 1st Round KO.

Johnson vs Dodson

Prediction

Johnson. These two fighters are super fast. Dodson can land bombs and this is MMA and Johnson is not immune from the one that lands. Both are very skilled in technique, both have stamina, and both have heart and both will go 110% til the very end. It’s just that I see the advantage going to the Johnson with his corner as his trainer is Matt Hume. This coaching goes back years and Hume has coached Mighty Might til this point. I will not be so bold as to call what round or by TKO or submission, but I will predict Demetrious “Mighty Might” Johnson the victor. Straight across Johnson for the “W”, though this could be a championship bout that goes all 5 rounds – with lightning fast fighting.

Winner

Demetrious Johnson

Fight UFC 191 September 5, 2015

Arlovski v Mir

Prediction

Mir. Bitcoin Macroeconomics is taking Frank Mir. Now don’t get me wrong, I like seeing Frank Mir get beat on, and I have about written off Arlovski as a has been, but then again, he looked pretty good in his last debut. Though Arlovski is a skilled veteran, as every UFC fighter should have the skill set, and he has round experience as that veteran, I just don’t see him giving Frank Mir a fit at this stage of his career. Both are skilled on the ground, and I would have to give a slight advantage to Mir, but there should be some Muay Thai before the exchange takes it to the ground. I do see a finish to this fight, if anything via submission, but I would just pick Mir to win. I think Mir will be fine with striking but can see him wanting to take the fight to the ground with Arlovski working guard. There could be some interesting leg wars or arm locks or Kimura action, but I think Mir can get the tap as opposed to a GNP finish, though anything is possible.

Winner

Andre Arlovski (Bitcoin Macroeconomics got it wrong)

Holloway vs Oliveira

Latest Odds

Max Holloway @ 1.41
Charles Oliveira @ 2.44

Prediction

Oliveira. Today’s mixed martial artists bring it all. These two fighters epitomize this belief. Holloway is favored and will bring it. He likes to bring the fight and is accomplished Muay Thai fighter. The man is dangerous in close range with combos, including the velocity of 3s and 4s, his knees and constant kicks are telling, this is one dangerous dude. But Bitcoin Macroeconomics wants you to make money and opted to make a prediction on this fight. With the @ 2.44 odds for Charlies Oliveira, that’s a decent payoff given the odds. Oliveira and his physique and lankiness will give anybody fits. If Oliveira can keep his composure and keep a reasonable distance and play with that distance, capitalize on that distance, and perhaps take the fight to the ground, that lankiness will play into an advantage and that leverage will result in victory. This fight could end on the ground by submission. A triangle could end it all. I like the odds. Oliveira. Take the bet, straight across for the W.

Winner

Holloway by TKO (Bitcoin Macroeconomics got it wrong)

*Oliveira injury early on (collarbone?)

Fight UFC 190 August 1st 2015

Rousey vs Correia

Latest Odds

  • Fight Result
  • Ronda Rousey @ 1.02
  • Beth Correia @ 12

Prediction

Rousey – Never bet against Rousey. This is the sort of fight that could last 30 seconds or less. If there are odds for finish in the first round, take it, but never bet against Rousey.

Winner

Rousey by TKO 0:34 seconds into 1st Round

Bisping vs Leites

Latest Odds

Michael Bisping @1.81

Thales Leites @1.89

Prediction

Bisping – Bisping has too much ring experience and his cardio will play a factor, plus he brings the fight, plus he’s proven.

Winner

Bisping – Wins by Split Decision
