Choi vs Nelson Prediction

Choi Doo-ho and Kyle Nelson both enter this matchup in desperate need of a win. After a 3-0 start to his UFC tenure, Choi has lost three consecutive fights — including the last two by second-round TKO. Meanwhile, Nelson has lost four of his last fights and two in a row, most recently losing to Jai Herbert by unanimous decision at UFC London.

Though neither fighter has impressed lately, I'm siding with Choi to get the win. Yes, he's been knocked out in back-to-back outings, but he also has three knockout victories since joining the UFC in 2014. It's also been over three years since his last fight, so chances are he's feeling well-rested.

Nelson's 1-4 UFC record is less than inspiring, especially when his only victory came against Polo Reyes, who's only 10-8 in his MMA career. There just isn't much to like about Nelson's game, so back Choi to turn things around in Vegas.

Choi vs Nelson Best Bet

Unfortunately, the moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making a Choi outright win at -215 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC Vegas 68 for more playable options.
