Knight vs Prachnio Prediction

The odds point to this being a close-fought matchup between two hungry light heavyweights. William Knight returns to the light heavyweight division after going 0-2 as a heavyweight, most recently suffering a TKO loss to Devin Clark at UFC Vegas 51.

On the other hand, Marcin Prachnio's winning streak was halted at two fights due to a unanimous decision loss to Philipe Lins at UFC Vegas 52. Considering how Prachnio lost three fights in a row to begin his UFC tenure, he must do his best to avoid another skid this weekend.

Taking the above into account, I'm siding with Prachnio to win at UFC Vegas 69. On top of having more recent success than Knight, Prachnio averages nearly three more significant strikes per minute (5.84) than his upcoming opponent (2.95) and also has the better striking defense (53% vs. 32%).

At the end of the day, Knight is stuck in a rut and I have more faith in Prachnio bouncing back in a hard-hitting contest.

Winner: Marcin Prachnio

Knight vs Prachnio Best Bet
