Breaking down NY sports betting outlook for UFC 276
Here are the fights to watch on Saturday night, along with some insight to keep in mind when placing your bets with licensed New York sportsbooks such as DraftKings New York.
DraftKings promo code for Pedro Munhoz () vs Sean O’Malley ()
There’s never a shortage of fireworks in a ‘Suga Sean’ fight. The bantamweight holds a 15-1 record with a 73% knockout rate. Don’t take your eyes off this brawl because O’Malley has a powerful right hand that can end a fight in the blink of an eye.
But O’Malley has been criticized for racking up wins against inferior opponents, but that’s not what he’s getting Saturday night. Munhoz is the #9 bantamweight in the UFC and has proven that he can absorb punches and keep moving toward his opponent. If he can do that against O’Malley, it’ll make for an interesting fight.
DraftKings NY promo code for Max Holloway () vs Alexander Volkanovski ()
This is the third meeting between the two featherweights, and the first two scraps were classics. Volkanovski took the first two bouts, but Holloway insists poor judging came into play and he should actually be 2-0.
Volkanovski, 23-1, is putting his belt on the line in Saturday night’s championship fight. The Australia-native’s best attributes come defensively. In the first two fights, he did an excellent job countering flurries of punches from Holloway by attacking his opponent’s legs. This strategy will be key in Saturday’s match.
Holloway got the best of Volkanovski early in the last fight but ran out of gas in the fifth round. The Hawaiin is known for his high-volume punching and kicking to get the job done, but it didn’t work last time. Holloway will need to take his foot off the gas a bit in the early rounds to ensure he still has energy until the final bell rings.
DraftKings New York promo code for Jared Cannonier () vs Israel Adesanya ()
Adesanya, the middleweight title holder, is putting his belt up for grabs against the second-ranked fighter in his weight class in a fight that is certainly deserving of its main event status. But Adesanya didn’t capture a 22-1 record by accident. He utilizes his long 6’4 frame to land quick yet powerful punches and kicks. Adesanya has a 2.5”-arm-reach and a 3”-leg-reach advantage over Cannonier, which will certainly be a factor Saturday night.
This will be Adesanya’s fifth title defense, and ‘Stylebender’ will have his hands full. Cannonier has more power than any fighter Adesanya has faced in the 185-pound weight class. The ‘Killa Gorilla’ recently dropped down from heavyweight but didn’t lose any strength in the process. He’s known for showing impressive patience in his fights as he waits for the right time to pounce. But Cannonier has enjoyed recent success against mainly wrestlers, which Adesanya is not. It will be interesting to see how Cannonier’ handles a new type of opponent.
