Ulberg vs Potieria Prediction

Carlos Ulberg has wasted no time making his presence felt in the UFC as he has won four of his first five fights. That includes a first-round KO/TKO against Nicolae Negumereanu his last time out at UFC 281 in November. Ulberg likes to wear down his foes with body kicks before landing a viscious blow.

On the other side, Potieria once won 15 straight fights at the professional level and has emerged victorious in two of his three UFC bouts. It is worth noting that his only loss came via a first-round KO to Negumereanu, who is the same fighter Ulberg just beat. That doesn't bode well for Potieria here.

There's a talent gap that favors Ulberg in this fight. The New Zealand native averages a ridiculous 8.27 significant strikes landed per minute, which shines in comparison to Potieria's mark of 4.72. Ulberg has yet to reach his peak in the UFC and that will be clear as he takes care of business on Saturday.

Winner: Carlos Ulberg (-440)

Ulberg vs Potieria Best Bet

Ulberg is a huge favorite for a reason as his kickboxing background and versatile fighting style should frustrate Potieria from the start. Instead of taking on juiced odds to back Ulberg by KO/TKO (-175), bettors should opt for a first or second-round KO at -130 odds. Ulberg is fresh off back-to-back first-round KOs and Potieria's most recent loss came via a second-round KO. This is too hard to pass up.

Bet: Ulberg to Win by KO/TKO in Rounds 1 or 2 (-130)
