Nuerdanbieke vs Garcia Prediction

After going 1-2 as a lightweight, Steve Garcia returned to the featherweight division back in October with a TKO win over Chase Hooper. Building off that success won't be easy, though. After all, Shayilan Nuerdanbieke heads into Miami on a three-fight winning streak, which includes a first-round TKO victory against Darrick Minner in his latest venture.

I like Nuerdanbieke more due to his reliability as a featherweight. This fight is only Garcia's third time competing in the division. His win over Hooper was impressive, but it's also important to remember that he was submitted in his only other featherweight contest.

The fact that Garcia was also knocked out by Hayisaer Maheshate less than a year ago has also left me doubting his abilities. Look for Nuerdanbieke to keep his momentum growing this weekend.

Winner: Shayilan Nuerdanbieke

Nuerdanbieke vs Garcia Best Bet

Unfortunately, the moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making a Nuerdanbieke outright win at -196 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC 287 for more playable options.
