Drakkar Klose takes on Rafa Garcia in the prelims of UFC 277. How will this fight play out? Lightning Locks answers.

Drakkar Klose vs Rafa Garcia Prediction: How Will This Fight Play Out at UFC 277?

In what perhaps aims to be the featured bout of the prelims, Glendale's own Drakkar "I Can't Let You Get" Klose takes on the pride of Combat sports and entertainment, Rafa Garcia. Drakkar will forever be known in UFC folklore as the man who became fodder for one of the greatest comebacks in sports history when Benil Dariush arose from the dead and knocked him out unconscious after being bludgeoned to death by Klose for nearly half a round square. Let's dive into my prediction, pick, and odds for Drakkar Klose vs Rafa Garcia at UFC 277.

Drakkar Klose vs Rafa Garcia Prediction

Garcia doesn't really have much of a name outside of hardcore fans, going two and two in the promotion and still searching for that Marque win. Both have a marauding wrestling style that seeks to use their hands as a means to grapple with their opponents down the stretch and then some.

While they both have a fair amount of pop in their hands, their bread and butter is no doubt their clinching game, where even if they don't get the takedown the two fighters will use the clinch to stall about on the fence and win minutes of rounds, ultimately leading to a safe and secure unanimous decision scorecard. 

As they both are almost identical in both stature and technique, how does one differentiate what the best course of action is going to be betwise? Although the over I believe is a lock, the price is fairly too chalky to be bothered by. The fact of the matter is both are insanely durable and rely on grappling more often than not, a surefire recipe to go to a decision.

What I am ultimately going to side with is Drakkar Klose to get one over Garcia by decision. Given how that's his predominant win condition, getting -125 on a -223 favorite is an absolute steal and one of the safer plays on the entire card. Or just play the fight goes the distance before everyone else becomes aware of this easy pick'em and abstain from any robbery.
