Draw +5,000 +5,000

Pediction:

Prior to his fight with Chandler, Oliveira was criticized for being a quitter who would give up if he was struck hard and frequently enough. After surviving two tough fights against dangerous power punchers like Chandler and Poirier, he will have to do it again against the hammer-handed Gaethje.

Oliveira is the better grappler, while Gaethje has faster hands and more force. Because Oliveira missed weight on Friday, the results may lean towards Gaethje. Oliveira has missed weight five times in his career, all at 145 pounds, when he was plainly exhausted from cutting too much. Prediction: Justin Gaethje will win the match.
