Nascimento vs Hernandez Prediction

Allan Nascimento is the heavy favorite here, but he's had difficulties establishing consistency lately. After a 13-3 start to his MMA career, "Puro Osso" is 3-3 in his last six fights, never winning consecutive outings in that span. The silver lining is that he does enter this fight with momentum stemming from a unanimous decision win over Jake Hadley at UFC Vegas 54.

Meanwhile, Carlos Hernandez is on an eight-fight winning streak, going 2-0 under the UFC umbrella so far. He defeated Victor Altamirano by split decision at UFC Vegas 49, leaving time to tell if he can pick up where he left off nearly 11 months later.

Even though he hasn't been able to string together victories, I still like Nascimento winning this weekend. His striking accuracy (61%) is significantly better than Hernandez's (47%), which is only aided by Nascimento having the two-inch reach advantage as well.

With Nascimento also absorbing about two fewer significant strikes per minute (2.38) than Hernandez (4.37), I expect that Nascimento will get through his fight relatively unscathed.

Nascimento vs Hernandez Best Bets

Unfortunately the moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making a Nascimento outright win at -440 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC Vegas 67 for more playable options.
