The Line: Renato Moicano -450/ Cub Swanson +350 Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
Cub Swanson has been in the UFC for a long time and has established himself as one of the most respected fighters on the roster. That being said, it has been a shaky 2018 for the American fighter as he has lost his last 2 fights. That is not acceptable for a top fighter like Cub Swanson and he will need to turn things around quickly if he wishes to remain one of the top featherweights on the roster. At UFC 227, Cub Swanson will be taking on Renato Moicano from Brazil. Both fighters are very skilled so we should expect a great contest.
Renato Moicano enters the octagon with a record of 12 wins, 1 loss, and 1 draw. This is a good record and the Brazilian will look to improve it by beating one of the biggest names on the roster. This will be the 6th time that Renato Moicano fights in the UFC and he has done well in his past performances. It will be interesting to see if he can handle the pressure that will be handed by Cub Swanson.

As far as Cub Swanson is concerned, this is a fight he has taken to get his record back on track. The American will know that he is the more accomplished fighter and that he should win easily. If Swanson can turn up and perform like he usually does, he wins this fight.
To sum up, I am predicting Cub Swanson to win. The American is more accomplished and more skilled and I see him winning easily. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a decent price on Cub Swanson winning so that is the wager which I am going to suggest we make. In addition to that, I am also a fan of this fight going the distance since neither fighter has the ability to hit hard. Expect this fight to be decided by decision.
