Nchuwki: -115

Splits: 66% of handle, 52% of bets on Ulberg

Ulberg is more than happy to fight at distance despite how difficult it might be for fans to watch. But Nchukwi is going to try to get aggressive with him and use a strength advantage. It’s important for Nchukwi to get Ulberg hurt early, but there are some question marks about whether Nchukwi has the gas tank to go three rounds. Ulberg probably has a skill advantage, but Nchukwi’s strikes are nasty, so he won’t want to take too many of those. A stoppage appears likely in this one.
