UFC Fight Night 112 – Prelims Betting Preview
Jared Gordon vs. Michel Quinones
Jared Gordon (12-1) and Michel Quinones (8-1) were originally pencilled in to throw down at UFC 211 back in May, but Gordon was forced to withdraw due to food poisoning. The UFC opted to reschedule the fight and since moved it to UFC Fight Night 112.
Both Jared Gordon and Michel Quinones are powerful strikers with knockout power. Gordon was spotted in the UFC’s reality TV show ‘Dana White: Lookin’ For a Fight’ and will make his UFC debut in the UFC Fight Night 112 prelims.
Michel Quinones is also making his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 112 in Oklahoma. Despite both of these guys making their first appearance in the organisation, more attention may be drawn to Gordon simply because of his appearance on the TV show.
Michel Quinones likes to sit back and wait for opponents to move forward into his range before launching an attack. He’s comfortable standing flat-footed to lure an opponent.
On the other hand, Jared Gordon is usually the aggressor and brings a ferocious pace. His style is frenetic and aims to take his opponent down to the mat and start the ground and pound process.
I believe that Quinones will have a major advantage in the stand-up battle here and that Gordon will be looking for an early takedown. I’ve got Quinones as the victor in this fight and wiping Dana White’s other newcomer, Jared Gordon, from the hype train.
Quinones enters this one as a slight underdog. Instead of looking at the method of victory markets, I’ll be recommending Quinones to win as the value is there and the featherweight division isn’t known for packing consistent KO/TKO heat, despite the history of these two fighters. You can find 6/52.20+1201.201.20-0.83 odds with BetVictor.
Tony Martin is vastly improving every time we see him, and there’s no doubting he will be better than ever this weekend at UFC Fight Night 112. He continues to learn the depths of mixed martial arts at a rapid pace considering he is only relatively new to training martial arts. He fights long and tries to fight behind his jab. He is at his best, though, when the fight hits the mat.
Case has a fairly ‘loose’ stand-up game and kind of floats around the cage while timing kicks to the body of his opponents and countering their shots, too. Case will need to survive against Martin’s relentless pursuit for a takedown, and if he can, he’ll likely be able to control the fight when this one is battled toe-to-toe.
A very close fight, but I can see Case edging a decision victory against Johnny Case after winning rounds two and three. I’ll be taking Johnny Case to win at 5/42.25+1251.251.25-0.80 with Skybet.
Stansbury has consistently shown that he struggles in a simple stand-up affair and will be aiming to get this one down to the mat as soon as possible against Jeremy Kimball.
Jeremy Kimball is renowned for being a powerful striker with real stopping power. If he can connect on the chin of Stansbury, I have no doubts that he can put Stansbury away and finish the fight. It’s going to be a matter of whether he can stuff the repeated takedowns of Stansbury.
Stansbury is released as a slight favourite in this bout at 4/71.57-1750.57-1.750.57 . I think that both of these guys are capable of finding a way to finish the fight early and will instead be looking at taking the under 1.5 rounds selection at 7/52.40+1401.401.40-0.71 with Bet365.
