Tips: Usman @ 4/11 with Bet365
Kamaru Usman recently got paid for a title fight that he didn’t take part in, much to his chagrin, we’re sure. The Nigerian Nightmare was the understudy for Darren Till for the Brit’s shot at the Welterweight title a few months ago.
He trained hard on the off-chance that Till, for whatever reason, wouldn’t be able to fulfil his obligation to challenge Tyron Woodley. It was a strange training camp for Usman. Next time, he wants to be certain that he’s getting a title fight.
Beating Rafael dos Anjos at the Ultimate Fighter 28 finale would go some way to securing a clash with Woodley. There’s every reason to believe that Usman will beat RDA. The younger man, the stronger man, the up-and-comer. Usman is in incredible shape and has the admiration of peers in the company.
RDA is the more experienced fighter, something that could see him outwit the favourite for this tie. A win here would bring him back to prominence.
With those deadly leg kicks, there is a chance that RDA could go the distance and win that way. He’s 12/5 with Ladbrokes to get a win somehow. His submission game is strong but not as strong as Usman’s.
That would make a ground struggle all the more fascinating for viewers. However, we see the Nigerian Nightmare seizing his opportunity to climb the ladder. He’s a low 5/14 with Coral but it’s hard to look beyond Usman for a win in this match-up.
