Saaiman vs Martinez Prediction

Cameron Saaiman heads into UFC 285 hoping to remain undefeated. The talented South African striker exceeded expectations in his PPV debut at UFC 282, tallying a TKO victory over Steven Koslow.

Standing in Saaiman's path of continued perfection is Leomana Martinez, who is 2-1 in his last three outings. Having said that, neither of Martinez's victories was overly impressive as he defeated both Guido Cannetti and Brandon Davis by split decision.

Due to Martinez's uninspiring performances, I can't help but side with Saaiman. He's finished five of his previous seven opponents and will be looking to do the same on Saturday. I'd hardly be surprised if he lands some solid shots early on and takes control considering how Martinez absorbs 4.03 significant strikes per minute.

Winner: Cameron Saaiman

Saaiman vs Martinez Best Bet

When it comes to the best bet, I'm backing Saaiman to win by KO/TKO at +180. Again, Martinez absorbs a lot of strikes while Saaiman has displayed a knack for knocking his opponents out. While Martinez has never been knocked out before, I don't see his defense allowing him to survive all three rounds.

Bet: Cameron Saaiman by KO/TKO (+180)
