Top Rank on ESPN: LesPierre vs. Pedraza Picks

By Luke Irwin | July 2, 2020 8:54 am Welterweight Bout: Jose Pedraza (26-3) vs. Mikkel LesPierre (22-1-1) Luke Irwin: As far as “star power”, this might be the biggest headliner of Top Rank’s Summer/Quarantine weekday cards. LesPierre challenged Maurice Hooker for his world title in March of last year and went the distance in a losing effort, and Pedraza is a former world champion at junior lightweight and lightweight. He’s coming off of a loss to Jose Zepeda to get a secondary title at junior welterweight, and needs a win to stay in the mix. For LesPierre, it...

Top Rank on ESPN: Fredrickson vs. Saucedo Picks

By Luke Irwin | June 30, 2020 8:23 am Junior Welterweight Bout: Alex Saucedo (29-1) vs. Sonny Fredrickson (21-2) Luke Irwin: Saucedo’s only loss was in November of 2018 in his quest for world title gold against Maurice Hooker. Since then, he finished the immortal Rod Salka in the first round. Fredrickson is a level below and is coming off of a loss for a secondary title. Saucedo via R8 TKO. Junior Welterweight Bout: Josue Vargas (16-1) vs. Salvador Briceno (17-5) Luke: At only 22, Vargas’s career trajectory is right where it should be with his last fight earning...

UFC on ESPN: Hooker vs. Poirier Picks

By Luke Irwin | June 26, 2020 8:29 am Lightweight Bout: Dan Hooker (20-8) vs. Dustin Poirier (25-6) Luke Irwin: Goddamn, this fight is spicy. These lads have combined for fourteen (!) post-fight bonuses in their UFC careers. They love to strike and this is as slam-dunk of a Fight of the Night pick as you can make. Hooker’s path to victory will be using his kicks and polished kickboxing style to keep Poirier at bay. However, Hooker can be hit by elite strikers, and hit well. Paul Felder, who has more of a muay thai skillset than Poirier,...

UFC on ESPN: Blaydes vs. Volkov Picks

By Luke Irwin | June 19, 2020 7:57 am Heavyweight Bout: Alexander Volkov (31-7) vs. Curtis Blaydes (13-2) Luke Irwin: Blaydes, at time of writing, is coming in at an enormous -380 favorite, which is pretty damned high for an opponent like Volkov, who is accomplished, experienced, and has a range that can frustrate many heavyweights. I wagered on Volkov in my betting column because he’s worth the risk at a +290 underdog, but do I think he’ll win this fight? No, I don’t. Blaydes only has one-inch of a shorter reach than Volkov and is only three inches...
