Basharat vs Mendonca Prediction

Javid Basharat owned a perfect record before joining UFC and it's remained that way since then. "Snow Leopard" is 3-0 since joining the promotion, most recently picking up a unanimous decision win against Tony Gravely back in September.

Meanwhile, Mateus Mendonça has also yet to taste defeat in his own MMA career. He made his UFC debut less than four months ago, knocking Ashiek Ajim out just 48 seconds into the first round. The victory also marked the third time in his last four fights that Mendonça won by KO/TKO.

Taking all of that into account, Basharat is heavily favored for a reason. He has more UFC experience than Mendonça, meaning the former is already more used to high-level competition. Besides, Basharat's victory over Gravely was impressive, especially considering how the latter is a former KOTC Bantamweight Champion.

Mendonça's time will come, but this is clearly Basharat's fight to lose.

Basharat vs Mendonca Best Bets

Unfortunately, the moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making a Basharat outright win at -400 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC Vegas 67 for more playable options.
