UFC Preview: UFC Fight Night 83 - Cowboy Vs. Cowboy

Main Event: Donald Cerrone vs. Alex Oliveira

Odds:  Cerrone +220, Oliveira -280

In the main event of the night, Donald Cerrone makes his fighting debut in the Welterweight division – moving up from the Lightweight class where he previously was quite successful. In all actually the move is a bit strange as Cerrone had won 5 straight matches before losing in April.  Cerrone has an intriguing first matchup against the unranked Alex Oliveira. Oliveira has a successful fighting career at 13-2-1, and has won his last three matches. What may hinder Oliveira in the fight is that this will be his fifth fight in the last 11 months and the fact he is a last minute replacement. Cerrone has the skill set and height to make the jump up a weight class and is a good pick to start his tenure in the Welterweight division on a high note.

Pick: Cerrone  

Derek Brunson vs. Roan Carneiro

Odds: Brunson -370, Carneiro +280

The lead up to the main event on Sunday night features two ranked middleweights looking to gains some more notoriety and respect. Derek Brunson – the 13th ranked middleweight – enters as the favourite with 3 straight wins – and 5 wins over his last 6 matches – to stretch his MMA career record to 14-3. Carneiro enters as the underdog after having lost 2 of 3 and 3 of 5 overall. Carneiro is a grappling and submission specialist but his severe lack of a striking game makes his somewhat of a one-trick pony. Take Brunson on Sunday to continue his winning ways.

Pick: Brunson

Chris Camozzi vs. Joe Riggs

Odds: Camozzi -270, Riggs +210

Rounding out Sunday’s top fights is a match featuring two veterans of the MMA world. At a combined 67 wins and 89 total fights, you would be hard pressed to find a fight featuring two more experienced fighters. Camozzi – at 22-10 – won his last match, snapping a streak of losses (5 in total) starting back in May 2013. Riggs is 1-2 in his three fights since returning to the UFC in 2014. Neither fighter is currently that highly touted, so experience and skills are key factors in determining the winner. Riggs has the experience edge and is a more well-rounded and lighter on his feet. Camozzi is a brawler – in the truest sense – but his stamina is not quite what it used to be. For all these reasons, Riggs should emerge victorious on Sunday.

Pick: Riggs
