UFC 239 - Jon Jones vs Thiago Santos

Jon Jones vs Thiago Santos

This is business as usual for Jones who is making a short turnaround after putting on a clinic against Anthony Smith. Santos, who finished Smith, is undefeated at light heavyweight and has won 8 of his last 9.

Santos is a lethal Muay Thai fighter but has not fared well against elite competition. Jones has fought elite strikers like him and has more weapons to choose from: wrestling, striking, or submissions. 

Jones should win this one comfortably and should be one of your UFC 239 best bets.

UFC 239 - Amanda Nunes vs Holly Holm

Amanda Nunes vs Holly Holm

Nunes, the greatest women's fighter of all time, is set to add another premium scalp to her collection that already includes Cyborg, Shevchenko, and Rousey. Holm presents a different challenge, but not one Nunes won't know how to solve.

Holm is a technical kickboxer who has underrated wrestling. But Nunes has already fought and beaten Shevchenko, who is a much more skilled fighter than Holm. And Nunes has the power, explosiveness, and jiu-jitsu to put Holm away. 

Nunes should win an easy decision.

UFC 239 - Jorge Masvidal vs Ben Askren

The fan favourite fight of the evening pits the traditional grappler (Askren) versus striker (Masivdal) fight. Although Masvidal is more than just an archetypal "striker", as he is a true mixed martial artist who has no weakness. However, Askren's insane durability coupled with his relentless wrestling will win him this fight.

Masvidal may hurt Askren a few times, but unless he knocks him out completely, Askren will come back and grind out a close decision victory.

UFC 239 - Jan Blachowicz vs Luke Rockhold

Former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold is debuting at light heavyweight against its resident gatekeeper, Blachowicz. The Pole will be competitive in this fight, but he tends to lose against top-five opponents and Rockhold fits that bill.

Rockhold moving up in weight will be good for him as he will be relieved from the stress of the weight cut. He should be stronger and in better shape and will use his many tools: kicks, BJJ, and Muay Thai to handily beat Blachowicz.

Diego Sanchez vs Michael Chiesa

Sanchez is one of the UFC's oldest fighters and with this being his 30th UFC fight, he has way too much mileage. But this is a tailor-made match-up for Sanchez, who excels against grapplers with unspectacular striking prowess.

Chiesa's strength, grappling, also happens to be something Sanchez can deal with. And Chiesa doesn't have much striking power. While Sanchez's durability is hard to trust now, he should win. Take Sanchez as your UFC 239 vegas odds underdog.
