UFC Fight Night 215: Johns vs Morales 11/19/2022 Odds
Miles Johns (12-2, 3-2 UFC) strung up 10 straight victories before absorbing his first setback at the hands of Mario Bautista in February 2020. He bounced back in his next two assignments, winning via knockout over Kevin Natividad and Anderson dos Santos. The fighter known as “Chapo,” however, fell prey to John Castañeda, losing to a technical submission in the third round. Johns is a precise striker when he lands his punches consistently. This was evident in his last win against dos Santos as the American landed 67.8% of his punches en route to a knockout victory. He will need this striking accuracy again when he meets Morales.
Also known as “Vandetta,” Morales (11-6, 3-4 UFC) looks to bounce back from a tough loss against Jonathan Martinez in May as he fights Johns in a three-round encounter. In his last bout against Martinez, Morales could only land 37.8% of his strikes and allowed his foe to impose his will. He allowed 88 strikes to land on his body and was knocked down twice. He needs to be more accurate and more aggressive against Johns to stand a chance of winning as it is expected to be a striking match. Vince Morales will bring power into the bout as he has won six of his fights by knockout.
