UFC 227: Preview, Predictions and Best Bet

Fri, Aug 3, 9:32am by Staff Writer

The Ultimate Fighting Championship heads to Los Angeles this weekend for it’s next scheduled Pay-Per-View event, Sunday AEST.

Two title bouts will sit atop the Staples Center card headlined by a grudge rematch between new bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw and former champion Cody Garbrandt.

The two previously were the co-main event bout last November at UFC217 at Madison Square Garden where Dillashaw upset Garbrandt via second round KO to reclaim the bantamweight title he lost in January 2016 to Dominick Cruz.

Garbrandt will look to reclaim the bantamweight belt he previously claimed in his defeat over Dominick Cruz in December 2016 and will head into this bout a narrow underdog.

Dillashaw heads into the main event at $1.81 with Garbrandt at $2 for the win.

In the co-main event, Demetrious Johnson will look to defend his UFC record 11 consecutive  defenses of his featherweight title in his bout against Henry Cejudo.

The pair previously did battle in April 2016 at UFC197 where ‘Mighty Mouse’ prevailed via first round TKO over Cejudo.

Cejudo will enter the bout on a two fight winning streak and as the number 1 contender for  the featherweight title.

Johnson heads into the bout an overwhelming $1.17 favourite to record a 12th consecutive title defense with Cejudo rated a $5.10 chance to steal the belt.

Completing the main card component of the 12 bout event are fights between middleweights Thiago Santos and Kevin Hollard, strawweight’s Polyana Vlana and JJ Aldrich and a featherweight bout between Cub Swanson and Renato Moicano.

TJ Dillashaw will be keen to establish a permanent reign of the bantamweight title and a second win over Cody Garbrandt will set him well on the path to do so.

With Garbrandt largely inactive only fighting once since December 2016, being his November 2017 bout with Dillashaw, doing battle with the same opponent presents a challenging hurdle for him to reclaim his title.

Expect a non-stop toe-to-toe battle between the two in this encounter with Dillashaw to win a clear but competitive points decision.

Suggested Bet: T.J. Dillashaw to win @ $1.81
