ANALYSIS

Nick Maximov vs Andre Petroski Prediction: How Long Will Maximov Last?

To kick off festivities once again we have a grappling slobber knocker taking place in the form of Nick "Stockton Slap" Maximo Blanco taking on the always red Andre "Gasoline" Petroski. Usually, when a casual person tunes into the UFC they instantly expect to watch two warriors launching absolute fisticuffs at each other until one's demise.

They will see no such hands being thrown however as these outstanding gentlemen are going to be wrestling early as they are going to be ugly and often as the sun sets every afternoon. Nick Maximov comes from the esteemed Diaz fight camp situated out of Stockton. Petroski on the other hand doesn't have the same background training fanfare, opting to fight out of the lesser-known but illustrious Renzo Gracie gym in Philly. Here is my prediction, pick, and the odds for Nick Maximov vs Andre Petroski.

Nick Maximov vs Andre Petroski Prediction

To be honest both of these guys' standups are at best a work in progress at worst laughably bad so expect the fight to be contested on the floor for like 85 percent of the allotted time. Although the two ground games might cancel one another out, their fighting styles and patients for taking as little damage as possible from strikes still leads me to believe they will be clinching for dear life and dragging down the bout to the mat.

So at the end of the day who wins this seemingly stalemated, khabob-inspired submission underground ripoff? While the case can be made for Petroski having the better technical training institution, the money and hype are obviously going to reside with Stockton Nick. He is also going to have the better physical attributes and tremendous cardio, leading me to believe that he is going to be able to get the better of the overall exchanges wherever the fight transitions into. 

That being said, the fact that the fight is literally just going to be grappling makes the matter more 50/50 than it would be otherwise, and with that, the +300 dog in Petrovski has immense value. In the end, however, I propose to play the over 2.5 as this is almost a surefire guarantee due to the clash of styles as well as it gives the wagerer a safety cushion in the event of being on the wrong end of a decision.
