UFC 283: Lacerda vs Stamann 01/21/2023 Odds
Lacerda (12-1) makes his debut in the UFC after spending over 10 years in the independent circuits. Since losing to Ary Farias in 2014, Juan Lacerda has strung up 10 consecutive wins and that’s enough for the promotion to give him the opportunity to fight in the major leagues of mixed martial arts. The Macapa native has finished 10 of his opponents via submission and he hopes to continue his winning run against UFC veteran Stammen, who has fought the likes of Aljamain Sterling, Said Nurmagomedov and Eddie Wineland. Lacerda’s first fight in the UFC will be the most important fight of his young career as it will prove his readiness in more top-caliber fights in the future.
Stamann (20-5-1, 6-4-1 UFC) bounced back from a rough three-fight skid in June by winning over Eddie Wineland in just 59 seconds of the first round. The Wayne, Michigan native has a roller-coaster UFC stint where he had mixed wins with losses. His victory against Wineland gives him another shot of regaining his old form and he will try to make it two in a row against the debuting Lacerda in hostile territory. Cody Stamann has nine stoppage victories in his record, including seven knockouts, as he hopes that his striking ability would make the Brazilian think twice on attacking him. However, the American will be in for a rude awakening if he allows Lacerda to force his way and make his move for an attack.
