1 unit on Jalin Turner +122 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.22)
Thiago Moises is 4-3 in his last seven fights, as well as 2-2 in the UFC. He's a wrestler and not much of a puncher, with one TKO in his last eight bouts. His boxing stats are unimpressive, averaging just 2.68 significant strikes per minute with a 43% accuracy. He comes off a submission victory over Michael Johnson, though he was out-struck 27 to 1. He absorbs 3.54 significant strikes, and that will be a concern against Jalin Turner. Turner is on a 7-3 fight run, including 2-1 in his last three UFC bouts. He is a powerful puncher, averaging 5.95 significant strikes with 48% accuracy. Moises might try to take this to the mat, but his takedown accuracy is poor at 28%. And Turner's defense is very strong (76% takedown defense). For this fight, Turner is the same age with a whopping six-inch height advantage and close to a five-inch reach edge. Back Jalin Turner to win the bout.
