Going down south this week although maybe I should stay home seeing how my picks got demolished this past Sunday.  I had earlier picked Oezdemir’s great promotional debut win against Ovince Saint Preux but honestly didn’t see this beat down coming.  OUCH!

Back to the fight card – the Jeunesse (previously HSBC) Arena is in beautiful Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and is best known for hosting the gymnastics events for the Olympics last summer but this weekend we get to enjoy battles between the #1 & #2 Featherweights – Aldo & Holloway as well as the #2 & #3 women Strawweights – Gadelha & Kowalkiewicz.   It’s going to be an enjoyable night. 

Over at Tapology the crowd has Aldo with a slight edge against Holloway at 56% to 44%, but they’re expecting much more out of Gadelha, installing her as an early 70% to 30% favorite over Kowalkiewicz.  The oddsmakers are toeing the same line as the Tapology crowd with Aldo vs Holloway at near perfect even odds.  Also in line with Tapology, they are giving a decently wide advantage to Gadelha as well, giving here a moderate nod at -280.  One feather in Holloway’s cap is that he was able to take his Conor McGregor match in 2013 to a decision while Aldo experienced a 1st round TKO (punches) at the hands of Conor in 2015.  I’m with the oddsmakers on Aldo vs Holloway – anyone’s fight.  I’ll focus my picks on some of the other great mis-matchups.
