Williams vs Bedoya Prediction

Khaos Williams has been solid since making his UFC debut three years ago, going 4-2 under the promotion. He's been impressive for the most part, picking up knockout wins over Alex Morono, Abdul Razak Alhassan, and Miguel Baeza. Nevertheless, Williams must figure out how to rebound from a split-decision loss to Randy Brown in his latest outing.

If Williams wants to reverse his fortunes, he must overcome the debuting Rolando Bedoya. The Peruvian welterweight heads to the UFC on a 10-fight winning streak, having finished six of those opponents (three by submission, three by KO/TKO).

I see Williams' striking skills giving him the advantage here. He averages 5.00 significant strikes per minute and has seven knockout victories to his name. He also boasts a 75% takedown defense rate, meaning he should be able to withstand the majority of Bedoya's grappling attempts. The "Oxfighter" easily has the experience advantage over the "Machine," too.

While Bedoya may find UFC success one day, his first test will be too much. Expect Williams to return to the win column.

Winner: Khaos Williams

Williams vs Bedoya Best Bet

Unfortunately, the moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making a Williams outright win at -340 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC 288 for more playable options.
