Chase Sherman vs Waldo Cortes-Acosta Prediction, Pick, Odds: Can Cortes-Acosta Dominate at UFC Fight Night?

Alas, we get to the obligatory heavyweight event of the evening, with The Pride of the Dominican Republic Where's Waldo Cortes Acosta taking on the perennial punching bag Chase "Bank" Sherman. What's absolutely hilarious about this contest is that it seems to be a part of the UFC's never-ending tournament of Round Robin heavyweight jobbers, from the likes of Parker Porter, Josh Parisian, and of course the Vanilla Gorilla in Sherman.

Chase Sherman vs. Waldo Cortes Acosta Prediction

The second thing that is rather out of left field pertaining to the bout is how it is only like two cards removed from Waldo's debut, a victorious effort in which his lead leg got kicked to absolute smithereens. 

I'm not going to be that obnoxious guy that tries to expose how bad Waldo's lower body defense was in his fight with Vanderra, but it definitely poses a concern for future endeavors he might have in the cage.

While Waldo could definitely find himself improving on whatever shortcomings he might have elicited in his first fight with the UFC, I doubt he can make any proper adjustments over the course of less than a month, as at the end of the day he has probably been more concerned with icing his legs than studying check defense fundamentals.

Chase Sherman is a jack of all trades master of none type of fighter, but perhaps the most pivotal tool in his arsenal especially in this specific scenario would most definitely be the leg kicks, something that could be used for great effect against the compromised Cortes. So when it all comes down to brass tax who wins this slobberknocker at 265?

While Chase has probably the best circumstances to pull the upset over Waldo at the moment than he would ever have usually but Cortes-Acosta should be able to pull it out of the fire and get one over on Saturday when it's all said and done.

Expect Waldo Cortes-Acosta to stifle the incoming leg assault of Chase Sherman with his bare fists, putting him out of consciousness altogether by the late second or early third round.
