Main Event Breakdown

“The Chosen One” has his striking accuracy at 48 percent and a grappling accuracy of 38 percent. He delivers 2.64 significant strikes a minute while taking on 3.95. Not too crazy about his ratio here, but he has made it this far.

Gilbert Burns (18-3-0) has also put together a winning resume and netted himself a sixth-best fighter in the division. Currently, he is on a four-fight win streak. His winning resume has five wins by knockout and eight by submission.

“Durinho” has a striking accuracy of 44 percent and a grappling accuracy of 39 percent. He delivers 3.22 significant strikes a minute and takes on 3.25. This ratio is a little better to look at and is much better than Woodley’s.

I have to take the odds on Woodley for this UFC main event. I think it’s a safe bet and have to take advantage of sports betting being legal in Denver and Colorado.
