Splits: 63% of handle, 43% of bets on Cutelaba

Cutelaba (16-7-1) is in a major slump, going 2-4-1 in his past seven fights. He will be at a significant height disadvantage against the 6-foot-5 Walker, but Cutelaba has the best counter for that with his wrestling. Walker (18-7) can be taken down and controlled on the ground. Plus there are questions about how will respond after an ugly knockout loss to Jamahal Hill earlier this year.

Walker will try to strike from distance and stay on the outside, but he will struggle defending Cutelaba’s entries and his shoots. Cutelaba will do more than enough to take a unanimous decision.
