Bahamondes vs Ogden Prediction

After losing his UFC debut to Jordan Leavitt, Trey Ogden rebounded with a unanimous decision win over Daniel Zellhuber just over six months ago. Ogden's next test is Ignacio Bahamondes, who's finished off Roosevelt Roberts (by KO) and Rong Zhu (by submission) in his previous two contests.

At the end of the day, this is Bahamondes' fight to lose. "La Jaula" has the physical advantage, standing four inches taller with a reach that's three inches longer. On top of being able to create distance, Bahamondes also averages 8.33 significant strikes with 47% accuracy — both better marks than what Ogden averages (3.73 and 43%, respectively).

Ogden also has much to prove before being trusted against other UFC talent. Considering how impressive Bahamondes looked in his last two outings, I see him being too much for the underdog to handle.

Winner: Ignacio Bahamondes

Bahamondes vs Ogden Best Bet

Bahamondes will likely need to go the distance to pick up a victory this weekend. Both fighters don't go down easily and have only been finished a combined five times over 39 fights between the two of them. They aren't strangers to longer fights either, as proven by Bahamondes owning an average fight time of 12:17 while both of Ogden's first two UFC bouts reached the time limit.

Even though Bahamondes will dominate for the majority of the brawl, don't count on Ogden being finished.

Bet: Ignacio Bahamondes by Points (+170)
