OKBet MMA | Rodriguez vs. Jingliang Will Rodriguez use his weight advantage?



Rodriguez vs. Jingliang – Tomorrow, at UFC 279 in Las Vegas, Nevada’s T-Mobile Arena, fans and gamblers may see Li Jingliang battle Tony Ferguson.

Unfortunately, fan favorite Khamzat Chimaev failed to make weight for his main event battle against Nate Diaz, therefore the fight between Li and Ferguson served as the co-main event, with Kevin Holland and Daniel Rodriguez serving as the preliminary fights.

When Chimaev failed to make weight, the order of the three fights was changed. Now Chimaev vs. Holland and Li vs. Rodriguez will serve as co-main events to the main fight between Diaz and Ferguson.

Rodriguez, who weighs in at 179 pounds, will have a significant weight advantage against Li, who comes in at 170.5 pounds. This battle will only last three rounds instead of the five rounds that the night’s other two bouts would.

Let’s analyze the contest to see who you should bet on.

Li is desperate for a win in Sin City.

Li Jingliang is a professional mixed martial artist from China. He has a 19-7 record, with 10 victories coming through knockout, 5 via decision, and 4 via submission.

Five of his seven losses were through the scorecards, while the other two were submission defeats, indicating that he is an all-around fighter with equal skill with the punch and the choke.

Five most recent outcomes for Li Jingliang

  • TKO victory
  • Defeated through capitulation
  • A knockout victory.
  • Dropped by a point margin
  • TKO victory
  • It’s not unfair to point out that Li is inconsistent. But he’s coming in with momentum, having won by technical knockout in his most recent bout.

It’s remarkable to see him return to the octagon so soon after his dominant victory over Muslim Salikhov at UFC Fight Night: Ortega vs. Rodriguez in Elmont, New York less than two months ago.

With this victory and two performance of the night bonuses in his previous three fights, Jingliang’s name and abilities are back in the spotlight.

Even though it’s a last-minute matchup, if Li can pull off an upset and win consecutive bouts against the larger Rodriguez, it will do wonders for his self-esteem.

Rodriguez has to step up now

Rodriguez is over ten pounds heavier than his opponent, Li Jingliang, rather than being of equal weight to his opponent, as he would have been versus Holland.

Is he going to take advantage of his favorable odds and prove why he should be the favorite?

The more well-known he becomes in the UFC after this fight, the more challenging fights he’ll be offered in the future.

Daniel Rodriguez’s most recent five-match record

  • Won by a margin of points
  • TKO victory
  • Winner was determined by a tally of points.
  • Dropped by a point margin
  • A knockout victory

Rodriguez’s performances over the last three years haven’t been as convincing or steady as he would have wanted, but he seems to have mastered his form.

After beating Kevin Lee by decision at UFC Fight Night: Barboza vs. Chikadze, he is looking to make it four wins in a row against Li Jingliang.

However, that bout took place over 13 months ago at UFC APEX in Las Vegas. Therefore, one has to question whether he would be able to overcome ring rust while facing an opponent who has just fought.

Nicolas Dalby defeated him in UFC 255 in Las Vegas, over two years ago, and was one of just two losses on his record. His opponent was favored to win, but he lost the fight on the judges’ scorecards.

Since then, Daniel has gone three for three in the ring, including a pair of points decision victories.

Could Daniel be set to notch his fourth straight victory? The oddsmakers agree, albeit they don’t see him as a clear favorite.

Two of his previous three victories were by unanimous decision, while most of Li’s defeats have also been decided on points.

Even though Rodriguez is a little rusty, he will prove why he is the favorite by beating Li on points and winning for the fourth time in a row.

Daniel Rodriguez vs. Li Jingliang Daniel Rodriquez will come out on top, according to our forecast.

Daniel Rodriguez vs. Li Jingliang Daniel Rodriguez to win (-160) and over 2.5 rounds (-150) are recommended wagers at Caesars Sportsbook.
