Usman Nurmagomedov vs Patricky Freire (Bellator 288): Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips 19/11/22 | News & Preview
Bookmaker Ratings: Prediction #1 –
Fight Result – Patricky Freire to win
Usman quickly climbed up the ratings and made it to the title fight, bypassing the top 5 fighters. It happened mainly due to the name and authority of his brother Khabib Nurmagomedov. Nevertheless, we cannot deny that Nurmagomedov Jr. has a very high level, He has yet to have such experienced opponents as Freire in his career, and he hasn’t yet fought in such big events in the co-main event of the evening. Can Usman handle that kind of pressure? Probably, but he should hardly go as the big favorite. Patrick, though an age-old fighter, is a Bellator champion and has a very heavy puncher. Also, “Pitbull” has a black belt in BJJ and has a pretty good feel for wrestling.
