Thank you very much! Main Card Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Michelle Waterson Cub Swanson vs.
Both Gustafsson and Smith came up short in their title bids and both are looking to put themselves right back in title contention with a big win this weekend. Alexander Gustafsson vs.
Anthony Smith Betting Analysis Alexander Gustafsson is among the most skilled light heavyweights currently competing. Blessed with enormous size and length, Gustafsson has built a striking game around maximizing these tools, keeping range with active footwork and throwing in combinations from distance.
Smith is also a talented light heavyweight, though in different ways than Gustafsson. Alexander Gustafsson is an elite fighter in a difficult position.
Gustafsson has now come up short twice against Jon Jones, leaving him in the Rich Franklin Zone - better than almost all of his contemporaries but not good enough to beat the dominant champion. Franklin, after losing to Anderson Silva the second time, went before retiring. Alexander Gustafsson is favored but his style might not help him this time.
Though he may be a less talented fighter than Gustafsson, Smith only recently has tasted the upper echelon of MMA and has to believe he could work his way back to a title shot. That and his KO power may carry him to victory in enemy territory. It certainly is enough to think that Gustafsson as a favorite is far too high.
There are also a few notable MMA betting props to keep an eye on. Should Smith author the upset, it would likely be an early KO as Smith tends to fade down the stretch. Recommended Betting Sites.
