What was wrong with UFC 275?

And there is my usual mid-year meltdown, on schedule. I can’t even blame this one on bad judges. Unfortunately, virtually all of my readings were wrong, from my underestimating Silvana Gomez Juarez’s takedown defense and Josh Culibao’s boxing to my overestimating Andre Fialho’s stand-up. Glover Teixeira almost stopped the bleeding a bit, but alas.

There is still plenty of time to turn the tide. Let’s do it…

Undercard:

Adrian Yanez (-350) vs. Tony Kelley (+270)
Jasmine Jasudavicius (-240) against Natalia Silva (+195)
Court McGee (-120) vs. Jeremiah Wells (PAIR)
Ricardo Ramos (-300) vs. Danny Chavez (+235)
Gloria de Paula (-265) against Maria Oliveira (+215)
Cody Stamann (-550) vs. Eddie Wineland (+400)
Phil Hawes (-260) vs. Deron Winn (+210)
Kyle Daukaus (-250) vs. Roman Dolidze (+200)

Thoughts: All right, let’s start this comeback. Adrian Yanez, Court McGee, Cody Stamann, Phil Hawes and Kyle Daukaus seem like decent investments.

I sincerely fear that Yanez, being the best fighter in his gym and lacking a top instructor after the untimely death of Saul Soliz, will prevent him from realizing his enormous potential. Still, even a stagnant release should be more than enough to overtake Tony Kelley with his ridiculous durability and infernal power, especially since Kelley soaked up over 100 major strikes from Kai Kamaka III in his debut. UFC.

Indeed, ‘PrimeTime’ will eat through a straw if he leaves his chin exposed against an attacker of this caliber, so be in a position to take advantage.

It took him over a decade in the Octagon to do it, but Court McGee is finally fighting in a way that maximizes his gifts. He absolutely demolished the cardio of Claudio Silva and Ramiz Brahimaj in his last two fights and tricks to do the same with Wells, who doesn’t have the most fuel-efficient style in the world. Considering “The Crusher” is tough enough to stand up to Wells’ bombs and a skilled enough wrestler to knock Wells’ best game out of the equation, I’d say he’s worth a watch.

I don’t think I need to delve into why – despite his recent fights – Cody Stamann will beat a man in Eddie Wineland who has been a shell of himself for years at this point. Hit “The Spartan” with an underdog you like.

Even with that nasty knockout loss to Chris Curtis hanging over his head, Phil Hawes has every advantage in his fight against Deron Winn. He is by far the most technical and powerful striker and has the grappling skills to stop Winn, who struggles to translate his own impressive credentials into effective mixed martial arts (MMA) play, from grinding down the things. On top of that, Hawes is half a foot tall and over seven inches of reach over Winn. The only thing Hawes really needs to worry about are Winn’s quick hands, which pack enough heat to crack the former’s historically shaky chin, but Hawes has so much upside in the stand up it’s hard to tell. see Winn find the mark.

In short, bet on “Megatron”.

It’s clear now that Roman Dolidze has very, very little to offer outside of functional wrestling. Kyle Daukaus is by far the better forward, has the offensive struggle to put Dolidze on his back easier than Laureano Staropoli, and has a series of deadly front chokes that Dolidze looks ready to get into. In the end, Daukaus should win as he wishes.

UFC Austin Main board odds:

Calvin Kattar (-235) vs. Josh Emmett (+190)
Donald Cerrone (-165) against Joe Lauzon (+145)
Kevin Holland (-265) vs. Tim Means (+215)
Albert Duraev (-220) against Joaquin Buckley (+180)
Damir Ismagulov (-160) against Guram Kutateladze (+140)
Gregory Rodrigues (-190) against Julian Marquez (+160)

Thoughts: You know what? Let’s find other pies to stick our fingers in. Calvin Kattar, Kevin Holland, Albert Duraev and Gregory Rodrigues for the favorites and Joe Lauzon as the outsider by far.

It’s no secret that Kattar holds a clear technical advantage over Josh Emmett and is the only one of the two to have proven his ability to fight through five tough rounds. Emmett’s best weapon in this match is raw power, but Kattar has shown downright frightening durability in his more recent efforts. While there’s an argument to be made that neither of these men held a candle to Emmett in terms of one-punch devastation, I’m comfortable saying Emmett can’t knock him out, and if he can’t knock him out, he ain’t winning.

Lauzon’s argument is that his fight with Jonathan Pearce proved he’s still capable of his usual first-round outbursts, while Donald Cerrone’s current losing streak includes three first-round knockout losses. Most of his struggles have come against much tougher opponents than Lauzon, of course, but getting blitzed by an Alex Morono guy who’s only scored two (technical) eliminations since 2015 is a bad look. .

“Cowboy” is potentially worth the Hail Mary.

I kinda like me Tim Means Muay Thai, and his current winning streak proves there’s still gas in the tank at age 38. Unfortunately, Holland beat him in height, reach and chin. While Means’ backup fight is a slight ‘X-factor’, I can’t pick Means against a younger, bigger, less worn-in striker when limited guys like Laureano Staropoli have found success against him.

As fun as Joaquin Buckley is, he doesn’t have the takedown defense to stop Albert Duraev’s grappling attack…and he’s nowhere near as sharp.

The thing is, Gregory Rodrigues likes to fight himself, but he’s so capable he should be 3-0 in the Octagon anyway. If he does the right thing and relies on his wrestling and his Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Julian Marquez can’t do much to stop him. Even if he decides to get away with it, Rodrigues’ huge range advantage and firepower mean he can hold his own, although he’s admittedly unlikely to put Marquez down for good.
