Pedro vs Hunsucker Prediction

UFC 278 Pedro-Hunsucker prediction is from Tapology Fight Predictions.
Winner: Tyson Pedro (96%)
Method of Victory: KO/TKO (81%)

Tyson Pedro is the clear-cut favorite here following a first-round KO win over Ike Villanueva four months ago. While some bettors might think it's strange to see him as such a heavy favorite after going 1-3 in four fights before his last win, there's a good reason to like him here.

Harry Hunsucker has been knocked out in three of his own last four fights. Each of those losses came during the first round, likely affecting him mentally at UFC 278. Needless to say, it's going to be an uphill battle for "The Hurricane" this weekend.

I expect Hunsucker's unfortunate trend to continue, leading to Pedro winning in Round 1by KO/TKO win at -120 odds as the best bet.
