Armfield vs Johnson Prediction

Garrett Armfield's company debut at UFC Vegas 58 didn't go as he planned. The Springfield, MO native found himself submitting to David Onama in the second round, giving Armfield just the third loss of his MMA career.

Meanwhile, Jose Johnson heads into the weekend on a three-fight winning streak. He finished off back-to-back opponents in Fury FC before picking up a unanimous decision victory over Jack Cartwright on Dana White's Contender Series 2022.

Although Armfield is the favorite, I'm siding with Johnson on this one. Not only is momentum on his side, but Johnson has much better striking accuracy (63%) than Armfield. On top of that, Johnson absorbs more than two fewer significant strikes per minute (1.33) than his opponent (3.53).

This fight should be a fairly evenly-matched contest, but Johnson has more going for him at the moment.

Winner: Jose Johnson

Armfield vs Johnson Best Bet

Unfortunately, the moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making a Johnson outright win at +126 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC Vegas 70 for more playable options.
