MMA ODDS AND ENDS FOR THURSDAY: JACARE VS. OKAMI RUMORED

UFC president Dana White now revealed to reporters that a middleweight bout between former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo”Jacare” Souza and Yushin Okami is being targeted for a upcoming occasion. The fight is intriguing in some ways, but it might prove to be a massive stinker if Okami’s game plan would be to push Souza against the weapon for 15 minutes. Although Souza is a fine grappler in his own right, he is smaller than Okami and could have issues with his size if Okami’s plan is to just wall-and-stall, which he tends to perform in nearly all his fights. But if the grappling neutralizes each other and the fight becomes a stand-up battle then it is much more likely the Souza wins. The Brazilian’s hands have gotten much better in recent years and although Okami is a nice striker in his own right, his chin is very suspect at this point of his career and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Souza won the fight via TKO. The struggle will be closer than the public thinks, as I am certain they’ll be over Souza. As such, I anticipate”Jacare” to open at about -200 together with the comeback on Okami being +150. I really do prefer Souza slightly because he does possess the striking benefit but in the event the line reaches the +200 mark for Okami the wager might be on him. It’s a close fight though and the right play might just be to pass it completely unless the line holds absurd value for man. Koch vs. Poirier Added to UFC 164 According to MMAweekly.com, a featherweight lean between Erik Koch and Dustin Poirier has been added to the forthcoming UFC 164 card, which takes place August 31 at Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI, that’s the town Koch stands out of. This is an exceptional matchup involving two men hovering around the top 10 of this UFC featherweight division and that I expect it to be tightly contested, so much so that I watch the opening betting line being about a Select’em of -115 for every fighter. Although Koch gets the striking edge, Poirier has the grappling advantage and as Koch showed in his final fight against Ricardo Lamas, he is definitely vulnerable to being put on his back. However, when he can keep the fight standing he has a very good chance of knocking”The Diamond” out. I really don’t have a slender way yet within this struggle and my wager will likely depend on where the betting public takes the line. Thales Leites Returns to UFC Former UFC middleweight title challenger Thales Leites is returning to the UFC after winning six of the last seven fights since being cut by the advertising following back-to-back losses to Anderson Silva in UFC 97 and Alessio Sakara at UFC 101. The information was reported today by Sportv.Globo.com. Although a lot of people are amazed by Leites returning, I am not. Leites is actually an extremely solid middleweight fighter and in my opinion that he should haven’t been published in the first place because losing to Silva was an automatic reduction on his record and also the judges absolutely robbed him contrary to Sakara. There has been no competition named yet for Leites within his return but expect him to compete on the UFC 163 card against one of the branch’s lower-end fighters, perhaps someone from TUF 17.
