Lacerda vs Stamann Prediction

Luan Lacerda is set to make his UFC debut after dominating the Brazilian MMA scene over the last decade. He's won each of his last six outings by submission, showcasing an impressive ability to finish opponents off.

Meanwhile, Cody Stamann squashed his three-fight losing streak with a first-round TKO win over Eddie Wineland at UFC Austin. "Mr. Wonderful" hasn't won back-to-back fights in nearly five years, though, so tonight's bout will be a good measuring stick to see where he's at.

Even though Lacerda has more momentum, Stamann has the tools to get the victory. The latter's 75% takedown defense rate should help him avoid Lacerda's pesky submissions. Stamann also has the striking advantage, averaging 4.19 significant strikes per minute with 47% accuracy.

As great as Lacerda has been, he isn't used to this level of competition. Back Stamann to prove that he still has something left in the tank with a win.

Lacerda vs Stamann Best Bet

As it stands, FanDuel Sportsbook is favoring this fight to go the distance at -196 odds and it's hard to disagree. First of all, Stamann is no stranger when it comes to going the distance, seeing five of his last seven fights reaching the time limit. Secondly, Lacerda's submission-first style also has me predicting a longer affair.

Considering how Stamann is 11-3 when his fights have headed to the judges' table, I'm confident that he can outlast Lacerda to win by decision.

Bet: Stamann by Points (-140)
