Marcus Hicks                                                                    -255

Of the fights listed, I see 3 mismatches. Marcus Hicks is a dynamo that lets it all fly from start to finish. He’s got a lot of power in both hands and wants to stand about 2 inches from your nose and throw all he’s got. McAfee hails from the same organization that Doug Evans came from, Evans damn near upset Huerta. I’m not dismissing McAfee’s chances, but I think he will most likely be overwhelmed by Hicks. What I don’t like is the -255 beside Hicks’ name. That’s a little to risky for my taste, so unless the odds move to a more favorable number (less than -200) I will pass on this one.

Rob McCullough is tough dude with a solid game. He’s well rounded with a lot of KO power. I like the fact that he’s been fighting in the WEC for a couple years, he’s really in his element there and will be very difficult to beat. McCullough is on a major win streak and should soon find himself in a UFC octagon. Crunkilton’s only loss came in to Hermes Franca several years ago and just by looking at the records you would have to say this fight is a toss up. Crunkilton fits the mold of underdogs that I like to bet on. He’s a three dimensional fighter who’s been fighting/winning on a regular basis, he’s got his head screwed on right and he’s still improving. If you have seen both guys fight though, it’s apparent that McCullough is a notch above Crunkilton. This should be a competitive scrap, but in the end McCullough is slightly better in all aspects and should hold onto the title. Once again, I don’t like the odds placed on him and there is not enough value in Cleat’s +175 for me to take a shot on him.
