Miles Johns vs. Raoni Barcelos. While Johns lands 3.63 important strikes and takes 2.85, Barcelos throws greater volume than Johns, landing 5.69 of them. I anticipate it to be a foot battle between Barcelos and Johns because of their excellent takedown resistance. Barcelos is sluggish and will be open to being struck, therefore Johns will be able to make the better shots.

Raoni Barcelos vs Miles Johns. Barcelos has the fight to lose if he still has something left in the tank. As his wrestling has repeatedly failed in the Octagon, Johns is too terrified to throw anything more harmful than a jab. Johns is completely outclassed by Barcelos’ speed, power, hitting style, and grappling abilities. Even if we accept that Barcelos’ advanced age and recent knockout loss lessened his edge, it would be difficult to argue that he is superior than Johns in any way. Basically, he uses his jab to dominate the fight before delivering the bomb down the stretch.

Prediction: Barcelos via third round technical knockout.

Barcelos should be around a -150 favorite, so to get Johns at +185 makes it a play.
