This Saturday Mike Malott takes on Yohan Lainesse in UFC Vegas 70. Lock in Lightning Locks' UFC best bet for the bout. Read on to find out what it is.

Mike Malott vs Yohan Lainesse Prediction: Lock in This Expert's UFC Vegas 70 Best Bet

We finally head over to the feature fight of the night, as Mike Malott enters the battlefield against hairline-challenged wounded warrior Yohan Lainesse. Mike is perhaps currently best known for his dramatic first-round finish victory over Mickey Gall by pulverizing the slack-jawed lad from pillar to post for as long as the contest went for.

Yohan has had quite a different start to his UFC tenure, losing a back-and-forth slobber knocker to Gabe Green on his debut, but firing back the very next effort with a decision victory over company journeyman, Darian Weeks.

Mike Malott vs Yohan Lainesse Prediction

While not the most exciting bout of fisticuffs, that performance put Lainesse back in the win column, no doubt giving the Canadian momentum as he takes on fellow countryman Malott in this tumultuous spot. When looking at the styles of the fight between the two, one can't help but be overall flabbergasted by the grander scheme of things.

In one aspect you have Mallot who has literally never seen a second round in well over half a decade, finishing the fight for better or for worse all in the first five minutes of play. On the other side, you have Lainesse who has his own plethora of early highlight finishes, is guilty of slowing down the action in favor of salvaging his suspect gas tank. 

While I believe at the end of the day because of this little tidbit Mike Malott should steamroll Yohan Lainesse down the stretch, frankly, the trust is not there for Mike to not get nuked in the opening minutes of the fray as his defense is as bad as he is handsome.

That is why I am electing to bet on the fight to not complete two rounds due to the track resume of the pair, as well as their general styles bringing the chaos out from one another to ensure that this under cashes and cashes bountifully.
