Scott Holtzman (+174) vs. Mateusz Gamrot (-235)
Weight Class: Lightweight (155 lbs)
Fresh off his first professional loss, Mateusz Gamrot will be looking to pick up his first UFC win against Scott Holtzman. Gamrot of course came up short against another highly regarded prospect in Guram Kutataladze in his last outing.
For Gamrot, his path to victory will be heavy wrestling. He is a solid takedown artist while Holtzman has had suspect takedown defense at times.
On the feet, Holtzman certainly has the edge in power. Getting Gamrot off his likely takedown heavy game plan could be a key to victory for him.
Ultimately, I expect Gamrot to emerge victorious in this one. Check out the video below for a detailed breakdown.
Prediction and play: Mateusz Gamrot moneyline (-235) + Mateusz Gamrot by decision (+100)
