Williams vs Sherman Prediction

Karl Williams has been piling up wins left and right to begin his MMA career. The Atlanta, GA native heads into today's action on a five-fight winning streak, which includes back-to-back unanimous wins over Jimmy Lawson and Lukasz Brzeski to begin his UFC tenure.

Winning will be an uphill battle for Chase Sherman, whose career has been cratering as of late. The 33-year-old veteran has a disappointing 1-5 record in his previous six fights, which includes two first-round submission losses. He's also coming off a unanimous decision loss to Waldo Cortes-Acosta, who outstruck him 147-66.

It's just too difficult to trust Sherman with the skid that he's on. Williams is backed by an impressive five-fight run and has the grappling skills to wear his opponent down. He also has three finishes in his young career, which makes things look promising against an opponent who's been finished twice in his past four outings.

Siding with the oddsmakers, look for Williams to win with relative ease.

Winner: Karl Williams

Williams vs Sherman Best Bet

I'm casting a wider net with the best bet by taking Williams to win by either KO/TKO or submission at -120 odds. For starters, six of Sherman's 11 career losses have come by knockout or submission. Although he hasn't been knocked out in nearly five years, the fact that he absorbs 6.85 significant strikes per minute means that could change at any moment.

With Williams having superior grappling skills and knowing how to finish an opponent, I expect him to defeat Sherman either by KO/TKO or submission.

Bet: Karl Williams to Win by KO/TKO or Submission (-120)
