Altamirano vs Salvador Prediction

Vinicius Salvador has proven to be a knockout machine. The 26-year-old Brazilian has won 13 of his 14 previous fights by KO/TKO — including each of the last six. He's now set to make his UFC on ESPN debut following a second-round TKO victory over Shannon Ross on Dana White's Contender Series 2022.

Victor Altamirano is no slouch, though. After suffering a split-decision loss to Carlos Hernandez, Altamirano responded by TKO'ing Daniel da Silva in Round 1 back at UFC 278.

In what should be a hard-hitting flyweight bout, I like the idea of Salvador prevailing. He's too tremendous of a finisher not to trust and his 61% striking defense will help him weather Altamirano's barrage.

Additionally, Altamirano's only UFC loss came when he was outstruck by Hernandez. With Salvador averaging 8.43 significant strikes per minute, I don't like Altamirano's chances of survival.

Winner: Vinicius Salvador

Altamirano vs Salvador Best Bet

The moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making a Salvador outright win at -114 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC on ESPN 43 for more playable options.
