Herbert vs Klein Betting Picks

MMA fight odds give Klein a slight edge in this encounter due to his all-around skills. The Slovakian is far more superior in striking and grappling that Herbert might gasp for breath. However, the hometown bet has the fans as his motivation and his hands have been explosive in his previous fights as this could serve as the neutralizer for Klein in the middle of the bout. It could end early but it is more likely to end by decision due to the respect of both fighters to each other’s abilities.
