Saturday’s UFC 262 will be held at a packed Toyota Center in Houston. The fight card features a diverse set of athletes from every corner of the globe who arrive expertly trained in mixed martial arts. In interviews this week, many of the competitors voiced excitement to once again be fighting in front of fans.
Twelve bouts are scheduled with early preliminary action beginning at 3:30 p.m. PT.
Last week Marina Rodriguez controlled Michelle Waterson from bell to bell in a fight in which Rodriguez had the advantage based on her size and the fact that they competed at 125 pounds. Geoff Neal, my parlay position, fared much worse, however, as he looked lethargic, sluggish and listless in his bout.
We have since discovered that Neal had to drop 37 pounds in order to make weight, material information that would’ve changed my handicapping of that fight. Neal even hid his health information from his team/camp, which is not only foolish, it’s dangerous.
Insight the Octagon 2021: 10-7, + 3.15 units off last week’s 1-1 result.
CHARLES OLIVEIRA -125 VS. MICHAEL CHANDLER + 105
