UFC Fight Night 147 Odds & Betting Preview

Danny Roberts vs Claudio Silva (Welterweight)

Claudio Silva is currently riding a phenomenal 12 fight win streak. Most recently he submitted Nordine Taleb in Liverpool a year ago. Danny Roberts is coming off a split decision, Fight of the Night victory against David Zawada.

Last time we saw Roberts in London he scored a dominating KO victory over Oliver Enkamp. The step in straight from the southpaw stance got the job done on this occasion. He was able to show impressive takedown defense in this fight as well, something that will be important in his bout with Silva. Silva, the BJJ black belt, holds seven victories by submission in his 12 wins. He will likely look to implement this side of his game here against Roberts.

Nathaniel Wood vs Jose Alberto Quinonez (Bantamweight)

Nathaniel Wood is currently living up to his nickname, “The Prospect”. Dominating and finishing both of his previous UFC opponents, Wood has impressed. The former Cage Warriors bantamweight champion has solid stand up as well as a slick ground game. In both of his previous UFC fights, he was able to dictate the pace on the feet before picking up the submission victory. He also has a high work rate, which his opponents have struggled to deal with in the UFC so far. The fan favorite will certainly have the crowd behind him in this one.

Jose Alberto Quinonez is currently on a four-fight win streak. He was scheduled to face Sean O’Malley last year, but that fight was canceled. With the time off, he is likely to have added some wrinkles to his approach. Wood will have to be on top of his game in London. With three decision victories on the spin, Quinonez may go in search of the finish in this one.

Volkan Oezdemir vs Dominick Reyes (Light heavyweight)

Former title challenger Volkan Oezdemir faces the undefeated prospect, Dominick Reyes. One thing is for sure in this fight, don’t blink. Combined these men have 20 first round finishes. Oezdemir’s quickest victory came in just 15 seconds, and Reyes is no slouch himself with a victory in just 27 seconds. These two men don’t wait around and rarely have a “getting to know you” round in their fights.

Volkan Oezdemir is one of the favorites for UFC Fight Night 147.

Before losses to Daniel Cormier and Anthony Smith, Oezdemir had picked up three wins on the bounce, first beating Ovince St. Preux in his debut. He then went on to finish both Misha Cirkunov and Jimi Manuwa in a combined 50 seconds. Oezdemir will be looking to get back in the win column in London.

Reyes will definitely be the man with momentum coming into this bout. Riding a 10 fight win streak, including four UFC wins, he will be looking to continue his momentum in London. Most recently Reyes defeated Ovince St. Preux by decision and came very close to stopping him in the third. The former LFA man will look to put on a strong performance to cement himself in the title picture.

Best of luck and enjoy the UFC Fight Night 147 action!
