This is an 8* on DIAKIESE


A three-round bout at lightweight (155 pounds) goes down at UFC Fight Night 175 this Saturday in Abu Dhabi. We’re backing the favorite Diakiese, who comes in with a 14-3 record after defeating Lando Vannata last September by unanimous decision. Something that is crystal clear (upon review of the statistics) is that Diakiese’s takedown game is far better than Fiziev’s. Diakiese averages roughly 2.5 takedowns per 15 minutes while Fiziev averages less than a single takedown (0.91) per fight. Fiziev is 7-1 after defeating Alex White last September, also a unanimous decision. But his issue remains taking far too much punishment. We believe Diakiese is going to be able to take Fiziev down with regularity here in this fight and that’s likely enough to earn him a victory on the scorecards. 8* on DIAKIESE

FAQs

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.
