ANALYSIS

Darren Till vs. Dricus Du Plessis Prediction, Pick, Odds: Can Du Plessis Take Care of Business at UFC 282?

It's no secret that the UFC has canceled an absolute plethora of contests on the eve of Saturday Night, with not only the undercard taking a sizable blow but the main event as well to add insult to injury amidst the grander scheme of things. From OSP being a NOSP on the prelims to the likes of Robbie Lawler and Glover Texeria being the final nails in the coffin for any and all hopes of people buying PPV, there is simply not enough to go around in terms of making the last major event of the year sell out in droves.

Darren Till vs. Dricus Du Plessis Prediction

What is still left on the bill, however, is the clash between Dricus "District 9" Du Plessis and Darren "Deadbeat Father" Till. If you would have asked me five years ago who would come atop of this fisticuff shindig I would have sided with Darren 11 times out of 10. But alas, it's not 2017 anymore, and "The Gorilla" is a shell of his former shell, losing four of his last five fights in hilariously debilitating fashion.

While Du Plessis has not faced nearly the same level of competition in his native South African EFC Promotion, he has rattled off key victories nonetheless with dubs over the likes of Roberto Soldic and Markus Perez being nothing to scoff at.

While Till may be able to exploit some of Dricus's defensive holes in his standup game, I doubt he will be able to stuff the takedowns and inevitable submission attempts that the South African has poised inside of his arsenal. The fact of the matter is Du Plessis possesses more finishes by way of strangling than he does by knockout, standing at nine dubs over seven.

Give me the South African Scouser Dricus 9 to completely dog walk the washed Liverpudlian Till, overwhelming him on the feet and then subsequently taking him down to the floor, snatching up a mounted guillotine choke sometime during the second round.
