Justin Tafa vs. Parker Porter Prediction: Don't Miss This Expert's UFC 284 Best Bet

Every so often there comes a time for the lower echelon of heavyweights to well and truly overwhelm the viewing public with something great. From the never-ending saga of Jake Collier and Chase Sherman making the fight night rounds time in and time out, to the more chiseled veterans such as Andrei Arlovski absolutely phoning it in an effort to not rock the tenured contract boat. It has become abundantly clear that the glamor division of the UFC can get rather complacent when push does not come to shove. Let's dive into my UFC 284 prediction, pick, and odds for the Tafa vs. Porter fight.

Justin Tafa vs. Parker Porter Prediction

Although this Saturday sees rather the same exact recipe in the form of Parker Porter and Justin Tafa. I argue that the meme potential and overall hilarity of the entire ordeal will lead to not only a vastly entertaining spectacle, but money making opportunities to be had and conquered as well to really add insult to injury.

Parker Porter is a 6 foot 265 pound contender who prior to his most recent spill with the UFC was most known for giving Jon Jones a formidable fight during his come up circa 2008. Possessing more than double the cage time and experience than his weekend opponent in 6 foot Justin Tafa, with a record of 5-3. What Porter brings to the big boy table is something fairly different, implementing intricate footwork and chain wrestling to win decisions many a time as well as dramatically often.

Perilously more conventional when comparing to the traditional heavyweight mold, Tafa is a Samoan smashing machine aquin to the likes of Mark Hunt, pulverizing his adversaries in no less than one round and making it look easy in doing so. It is only when the fight prolongs that Justin starts to falter, with a decision loss to Jared Vanderaa really solidifying that claim with great putrid disdain.

When it comes down to brass tacks, the UFC matchmakers know exactly what they're doing in this sloppy low level affair, either Tafa bonks Porter early or Parker weathers the storm valiantly and secures takedowns and a lead in the volume department on route to a unanimous decision. Due to the hometown advantage residing with Tafa however, I am going to elect to bet on the over 1.5 just in case the putrid scenario of a robbery on the cards rears its ugly head once more.
