Kazama vs Nakamura Prediction

This matchup between Toshiomi Kazama and Rinya Nakamura serves as the Road to UFC bantamweight tournament finals. Kazama advanced to this stage after Kim Min Woo failed to make weight in the semifinals, whereas Nakamura recorded a first-round KO win against Shohei Nose to advance.

It's hard not to like Nakamura with his impressive finishing ability with four of his six victories have been by knockout. In addition to his quick victory against Nose, Nakamura also tallied a first-round submission win over Gugun Gusman in the quarterfinals.

Kazama showed some vulnerability when he was knocked out by Shoji Saito only two fights ago. In other words, look for Nakamura to make good on his favorable odds.

Kazama vs Nakamura Best Bet

Unfortunately, the moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making a Nakamura outright win at -450 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC Vegas 68 for more playable options.
