Vadim Nemkov vs Corey Anderson 2 Prediction

Real ones remember their first bout during the light heavyweight grand Prix finale, where Cory was putting it on Nemkov with sinisterly ruthless aggression, almost taking the snaggle-toothed Russian outright until a fateful clash and cut lead to the deflating no contest and winnerless situation of the 1 million dollar tournament purse. 

They now run it back to the dismay of no one and the fanfare of many, but what is split down the middle amongst the public is which side to back. On one hand, Nemkov bettors see the flip in odds from their first fight to the current as a major upgrade,  going from -170 to upwards of +180 depending on where you shop.

On the Corey Anderson front, the man was arguably winning the contest until that fateful nick that ended it all in a none result and major blue ball. While disappointing,  the road map for defeating Nemkov was nevertheless shown on full display, and now even at substantially more chalked odds the price may just be more than warranted depending on who you ask. 

At the risk of sounding like a juice merchant, I am ultimately going to side with Corey Anderson to get it done over Vadim Nemkov. The fact of the matter is I picked Cory his last time out as a dog and was blatantly robbed of that particular leap of faith, and now even though the odds have been steamed to kingdom come, conclusively it is for good reason.

Not only did Nemkov look substantially smaller but was getting outworked in both the striking and grappling exchanges. If it wasn't for the deus ex machina no contest, Vadim was easily on his way to getting stopped with ground and pound and the overall perspicacity of Cory. Give me "Overtime" Anderson to defeat Nemkov once more, but this time for all the marbles and then some by securing a TKO finish before the fifth round commences.
