Can Yair Rodriguez make a statement at UFC 284 when he takes on Josh Emmett on the main card? Matt McCuen breaks down the fight.

Yair Rodriguez vs. Josh Emmett Prediction, Pick, Odds: Can Rodriguez Make a Statement at UFC 284?

As you all know by now, I am a hall-of-fame UFC gambler, and we have a loaded card this weekend, and I am fired up to get into it. Last weekend we went 1-0-1, but the only reason we pushed and did not win was that our guy lost a point due to a head butt. We still have not lost a UFC bet, however, in the year 2023.

Yair Rodriguez vs Josh Emmett Prediction

I am looking at a fight between Yair Rodriguez and Josh Emmett. This is slated to be one of the best fights of the night, as they are two great competitors. Rodriguez comes into this fight as a heavy favorite, and for a good reason. He brings in a record of 15-3. The thirty-year-old has been impressive as of late, winning his latest fight against Brian Ortega. That last fight came all the way back in July, so it has been a losing time since he has been in action.

Emmett brings a similar experience into this fight representing a record of 18-2. He is seven years older than his opponent, and his last loss came all the way back in 2017 when Desmond Green defeated him. His most recent fight was in June when he defeated Calvin Kattar. 

I will be backing Rodriguez in this fight on Saturday night. The line is continuing to jump, so I want to lock this in at -170. I have this line -200+ so I still find value anywhere under this number. Rodriguez's fighting style matches up very well here, and he will have an advantage when it comes to reaching. I love this spot for Rodriguez on Saturday night. Let’s cash in!
