The Co-Main event on March 23 in Nashville and trash talk is already going strong. Words have been exchanged by the two fighters setting up for what’s going to be an intriguing contest.

Blaydes comes into the tie off the back of a defeat, but the brutal puncher will be desperate to land one on the conservative fighter that is Willis.

But which way will the fight go?

 

Curtis Blaydes v Justin Willis Betting Odds

Both fighters have very few defeats on their record, but it’s the power of Blaydes that the bookmakers are siding with.

He’s a -333.33 shot with the likes of bwin and Guts, with most giving Willis very little chance.

Big Pretty only has nine fights to his name but hasn’t lost since his debut back in 2012. However, it’s still early stages and the power he’s up against will prove a monumental task.

He’s priced at +220.00 to get the win and if he does the bookmakers are favouring that by way of decision.

There’s an even split in his wins between knockout and decision, with Blaydes even calling him a boring recently.

Blaydes has knocked out all but two of his victims, with the bookmakers siding with this outcome in Tennessee.

Curtis Blaydes v Justin Willis Betting Tips

Razor Blaydes is very much a knockout or be knocked out fighter and if there’s one way this fight is going it’s with a stoppage.

Blaydes has a considerably larger amount of power and aggressive style than his opponent which is why he’s being given the pre-fight edge. And we’d have to agree.

He can be devastating with his elbows and he’s already revealed this will be his main tactic come fight night.

He said, “On Fight Night you guys can expect to see a lot of explosive movement, a lot of takedowns and a lot of heavy strikes.”

It will be interesting to see how Willis does counter that. He’s relatively inexperienced against the big names in the division and has only won by knockout in two of his last six fights.

He’ll be relying on controlling and dictating the fight, looking for the decision, which offers some good odds and could be worth a few dollars or a free bet if you’re backing the 31-year-old.

The smart money is on Blaydes though. He’ll want to bounce back, and we think he’ll do that in emphatic fashion.

Fight Verdict:

Curtis Blaydes by way of knockout.
