1 unit on Ovince Saint Preux +105 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.05)
This is only the fourth UFC fight for 32-year old Alonzo Menifield. He's one-dimensional, preferring to box. Menifield doesn't like to take fights to the ground and isn't good at it. He comes off a loss to Devin Clark via unanimous decision and didn't have a good showing, looking worn out. Clark had a whopping edge in significant strikes (79-39), plus had a takedown that put Menifield on the canvas. He absorbs 3.75 significant strikes per minute, and that will be a serious concern against an experienced and powerful puncher like Ovince Saint Preux. Saint Preux has 21 UFC bouts under his belt (12 wins). He's more well-rounded than Menifield, with 11 KOs and eight submission wins. Saint Preux absorbs 2.91 strikes per minute, so his defense is very good and if the bout goes to the mat, Saint Preux has the edge averaging 1.27 takedowns per 15 minutes. Saint Preux stepped up to the Heavyweight division in his last bout but jumps back to the Light Heavyweight division for this one, where he is more comfortable. And Saint Preux has a three-inch height advantage, plus an eight-inch reach edge. Play Ovince Saint Preux to win the fight.
