Cappers Analysis:



I really like this matchup of striker vs. grappler. Lewis will try to knock out Oleinik while Oleinik will try and submit Lewis. Considering that Cormier is the only person to ever submit him and Lewis has been a pro for a decade, the latter is going to be difficult. Lewis has scored knockouts in 18 of his 23 wins. I feel that Oleinik will be victim #19. True, at 35 years old, Lewis is no spring chicken. However, Oleinik is much older, at 43. I expect Lewis to come out with a ton of energy, his take-down defense helping to keep the fighters standing up long enough for him to record the KO.

Jazz Ray: UFC TKO of the NIGHT!

Classic striker vs. grappler, as Lewis will look for the TKO and Oleinik will look to take Lewis down for a submission. Jazz has this nailed down as an easy TKO for LEWIS

Lee Sterling: 7 Pick UFC Package

Lewis is now in the best shape of his life. Oleinik losses to punchers and that's what Lewis is.



Best of luck!

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
