Wright vs Pauga Prediction
Jordan Wright stumbles into UFC Vegas 69 with a 1-4 record in his last five fights. He's been finished before the end of the second round in each of his last three outings, most recently succumbing to a TKO loss courtesy of Dusko Todorovic at UFC Vegas 62.
It'll be interesting to see how Wright handles Zac Pauga, who is coming off a knockout loss to Mohammed Usman in his UFC debut. Both fighters average similar striking numbers, however, Pauga absorbs fewer significant strikes per minute (2.14) with better defense (70%) compared to Wright (7.54 and 32%, respectively).
With how decisively he's been defeated lately, I don't see Wright getting his arm raised this weekend. Pauga will bounce back in Vegas before moving on to bigger and better things.
Winner: Zac Pauga
Wright vs Pauga Best Bet
Unfortunately, the moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making a Pauga outright win at -330 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC Vegas 69 for more playable options.
