UFC 283: Gilbert Burns vs Neil Magny 1/21/2023 Expert Picks, Tips and Predictions

UFC 283: On January 21 at Rio de Janeiro’s Jeunesse Arena, Gilbert Burns (20-5 MMA, 13-5 UFC) and Neil Magny (27-9 MMA, 20-8 UFC) square off at UFC 283. Two title fights, Glover Teixeira vs. Jamahal Hill and Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Brandon Moreno, along with Burns vs. Magny, would be the highlight of the main card.

Gilbert Burns, also known as “Durinho,” is a top competitor in the 170lb weight division of mixed martial arts. He recently competed in a closely contested match against the highly regarded Khamzat Chimaev, but ultimately lost on the judges’ scorecards. Despite being a top-ranked fighter, Burns’ next match will be against a competitor who is ranked seven positions lower than him, rather than another top-five competitor. The fighter hailing from Haiti is coming off a convincing victory over Daniel Rodriguez in his previous match.

In terms of grappling, Gilbert Burns is not as strong as his opponents. He averages 2.00 takedowns per 3 rounds, with a 34% success rate for his own takedown attempts and a 47% defense rate against his opponent’s attempts. On the other hand, Neil Magny is more effective in this aspect, with a 42% success rate for his own takedown attempts and a 57% defense rate against his opponent’s attempts. When it comes to submitting their opponents, Burns is more aggressive, attempting 0.6 submissions per 3 rounds, while Magny attempts 0.3 submissions per 3 rounds.

UFC 283: Gilbert Burns vs Neil Magny 1/21/2023 Expert Picks, Tips and Predictions

Burns will have a disadvantage in reach when he faces off against Neil Magny at UFC 283. According to UFC statistics, Magny will have a 9-inch reach advantage over Burns. However, both fighters have a similar strike defense at 54%, with Burns having a slightly higher strike accuracy at 48%. Magny is known for his strategy of using takedowns, with an accuracy of 42% and an average of 2.43 takedowns per 15 minutes. Despite the Haitan Sensation’s reputation as a strong striker, he is also a black belt and has 40% of his victories by submission. Therefore, attempting a takedown may be a risky move for Magny.

Expect to witness the highly-anticipated matchup between Burns and Magny at UFC 283, where we predict that Burns will come out victorious by decision. Despite the hype around Burns potentially ending the fight early, I am cautiously optimistic about Magny’s reach and endurance potentially leading to a drawn-out battle. “

Gilbert Burns vs Neil Magny betting odds: Bookmakers are favoring Gilbert Burns over Neil Magny in their upcoming UFC match, with Burns having a 77.7% chance of winning according to betting predictions. Magny, who has been the favorite in many of his previous UFC fights, has recently suffered a loss against Shavkat Rakhmonov. Both fighters are in their mid-30s and nearing the end of their prime years, but are still considered top-5 welterweights and may have a chance at a title shot with one or two more wins.
