Chad Anheliger vs. Alatengheili Prediction

The artist formerly and currently known as Chad hails from Consort, Alberta Canada, was after 3 consecutive losses on the Great White Norths regional circuit he personally decided to reevaluate his entire combat existence, switching camps and subsequently rattling off 10 straight victories, finally getting the attention of Dana White and properly cementing himself into the UFC by the last two of his dubs. Anheliger is one of my favorite prospects currently due to his technique being as flawless as it is supremely dangerous for all parties involved. 

The amount of high risk potentially higher-risk reward moves that he showcases during every single one of his competitive showdowns has left me absolutely dumbfounded but the crazy thing is, it kind of actually works. From parrying jabs with a counter left high kick, to reversing takedowns with a barrage of knees directly focussed into the sternum, the creative juices are on full force as Chad utilizes anything and everything to get his point across and obtain his much-alloted octagon win bonus. He faces, however, the more critically touted, UFC-tenured adversary in Heili Alateng.

No doubt hailing from Inner Mongolia China, "The Mongolian Knights" game is a simple one. Immediately seeking to destroy after the bell so much as whispers a sound, Alateng looks to hit you hard early and often, overwhelming you round by round until you subsequently fatigue in the later stretch of things and die of exhaustion or CTE. Winning a decision is not out of the question either for Alateng as well, but if it gets to the cards, know that his adversary is going to look like a victim of a bus collision when it's all said and done. 

Now, who ultimately emerges from this MMA contest the winner, and who leaves town as the loser? While I wholeheartedly believe if you had to pick a side Chad Anheliger is the way to go as his volume matching of Alatang and beautiful technique in all areas of the game should protect him all the way to unanimous victory, ultimately I'm going to select the over 2.5 as both participants are borderline superhuman in their durability and should have minor breaks in the action throughout in order to preserve their gas tanks and put on a lengthy, scrappy contest for the audience. While an injury is always a very real possibility to end the fight prematurely, the fact of the matter is this fight goes the distance 9 times out of 10 in every scenario imaginable, which is a self-made statistic more than good enough for me to play. 

Play the over 2.5, and become wealthy with a secure bank account and a good life.
