Li vs Rodriguez Prediction

UFC 279 Li-Rodriguez prediction is from Tapology Fight Predictions.
Winner: Daniel Rodriguez (59%)
Method of Victory: Decision (73%)

Despite struggling to string back-to-back wins together, Li Jingliang enters the weekend after knocking out Muslim Salikhov in his last fight in July. Meanwhile, Daniel Rodriguez has gone 12-1 in his last 13 fights while also winning each of the last three.

At this rate, it's tough to trust Li due to his inconsistencies. Rodriguez has been building himself up and the fact that he throws out 8.06 significant strikes per minute shouldn't be ignored. Throw in the fact that "D-Rod" has both the height and reach advantage, and it isn't hard to like his odds of winning.

I'll take Rodriguez winning by decision at +170.
