Main Card

Marlon Moraes

Moraes is a 31-year-old bantamweight fighter from Nova Friburgo, Rio de Janerio in Brazil. He fights out of Ricardo Aleida Jiu-Jits and Valor Martial Arts. Coming off a loss earlier this year against Henry Cejudo, Moraes falls down in the third round and nearly pushed the match to the judges’ scorecards. Before that loss, Moraes enjoyed a four-match winning streak since 2017 against fighters like Raphael Assuncao, Jimmie Rivera, Aljamain Sterling and John Dodson. Marlon Moraes is a swiss army knife when he comes inside the octagon and will look for Aldo’s weakness before devising an attack. Expect him to start slow and gain his traction by the end of the first round. But Aldo is a beast that is waiting to come out again after experiencing a string of losses. Moraes should be using his smarts in order to prevail in this match. 

Jose Aldo

Hailed as the perfect fighter until Connor McGregor scored a huge knockout, Jose Aldo since then has not been the same. Aldo was untouchable since 2006 and was undefeated in 12 years but the last four years were very tough for this legendary fighter. At age 33, he seemed to slow down and this featherweight fighter from Manaus, Amazonas has lost four of his last seven matches – two of which came from Max Holloway. In 2018, Aldo looks to be on a comeback trail with TKO victories over Jeremy Stephens and Renato Carneiro by lost to Alexander Volkanovski. His recent loss set him back to another chance at the title but he has Moraes to deal with and he is now seen as the underdog.

Moraes vs Aldo Betting Picks

Both Brazilian fighters are extremely deadly in many ways but Jose Aldo seemed to be regaining his momentum. But the safer bet will be on the younger fighter Marlon Moraes, who is predicted by Online Sportsbook to give another setback to the future MMA Hall of Famer. Never underestimate Aldo and he will look to knock down Moraes in the first rounds. Eventually, Moraes will try to put this match in the judges’ hands where Moraes had a hard time lately to convince.
