Expert Betting Tips
The Chinese fighter is the favorite here. Song Yadong's skills are more serious, his attacks are more dangerous, plus he has a huge advantage in the parterre.
But it's not interesting to bet just on Song Yadong's victory, and the odds are too low. We believe an early finish is likely, as Gutierrez has frankly faltered in his last few fights, even against weaker opposition. But the Chinese fighter looked decent, even against Corey Sandhagen.
