The betting is open for the upcoming MMA fight between a former UFC champion Junior dos Santos and Curtis Blaydess.Curtis Blaydes will enter this fight as the #3 ranked fighter in the Heavyweight division, while Junior dos Santos is right behind him at #4. Both fighters will be looking to inch closer to a title shot, though both Daniel Cormier and Francis Ngannou currently stand in their way.

Curtis Blaydes is one of the best wrestlers in the UFC and certainly has the capacity to take Junior dos Santos down and keep him there. Given Dos Santos' love for brawls, you would have to think that this will be Blaydes' strategy heading into the fight, as getting into a stand-up war with Dos Santos is probably not the best idea.

Dos Santos, on the other hand, will surely be looking to keep the fight standing, though he is certainly capable of pulling off a submission off of his back. This is actually quite an interesting style clash - Blaydes is a significantly younger fighter with a great deal less wear-and-tear on his body, and that might be his biggest advantage heading into this fight. Dos Santos has been in some absolute wars in the past, and his chin might be starting to go.

Curtis Blaydes enters this fight on a two-fight winning streak that includes wins over Shamil Abdurakhimov and Justin Willis, while Junior dos Santos is looking to rebound from a knockout loss to Francis Ngannou. Prior to that, dos Santos had won three fights in a row.
