ONE On TNT III: Lineker Vs Worthen | MMA Betting

Ryuto Sawada Vs Li Tao Miao

The evening begins with a Flyweight bout that features a pair of fighters heading in opposite directions at the moment. Sawada is in a good run of form, winning back-to-back fights and 4 of his last 5. He has seen 4 of his last 6 end in the opening round. After starting his pro career with a 5-1 record, Miao has now lost 2 fights in a row and needs a win in the worst way on Wednesday night. I don’t see him getting it, though, as I like Sawada to win by submission.

Marat Gafurov Vs Rae Yoon Ok

Next up is what looks to be a very good Welterweight matchup that could well be going the distance. Gafurov comes into this bout with an 18-3 career mark, but he has been up and down of late, going 3-2 in his last 5 fights. Ok is 13-3 and on a nice run of form, winning 4 of his last 5 fights. He is a fighter that goes the distance more often than not, with 5 of his last 6 going that route. A close one here, but I have Gafurov by decision.

Nieky Holzken Vs Wayne Parr

We get a little break from MMA for a moment, as the next fight up on the card is a Muay Thai bout. This is a definite change of pace for Holzken, who has been active on the kickboxing circuit with ONE. He has been a little up and down but is coming off a win last time out. Parr has also been fighting in a bunch of different styles, but he certainly has more Muay Thai experience than his opponent, which should be enough to get him the win here.

Yuya Wakamatsu Vs Reece McLaren

Listed as the co-main event of the night, this Bantamweight bout promised to be an entertaining one for fight fans. Wakamatsu, who is 13-4 overall, experienced a little hiccup after suffering 3 losses in 4 fights, but he has rebounded with 3 wins in a row. McLaren has been a streaky fighter on his way to a 14-7 record, but he is on a positive run now with back-to-back wins. I have this one going the distance, with Wakamatsu getting the decision.

John Lineker Vs Troy Worthen

The final fight of the night is one that sees and experienced pro going against a fighter looking to continue with a positive start. Lineker is 33-9 in his pro career and has won 2 in a row, as well as 4 of his last 5 fights. Worthen will be looking to bounce back after losing the first fight of his career after a 7-0 start. Both of these fighters can throw down, so I don’t see it going the distance. I am on Lineker for the KO win.
