Miocic, Miranda Will Live Up To Expectations At The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 Finale

Posted by Jack “The Hammer” Howard on 5/28/2014 8:37:58 PM

The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 has been a wild ride so far, and now that the card has been set for the Finale, we can look forward to a handful of fights that has MMA fans can’t wait to see this Saturday night. Fans that wanted to watch coaches Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva clash will have to wait another week for the UFC 175 event, but the final three fights scheduled for Sao Paulo this weekend more than make up for it.

The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 - Heavyweight
(11-1) Stipe Miocic vs. Fabio Maldonado (21-6)

Junior Dos Santos broke his hand and couldn’t compete against Miocic in what would have been a very intriguing main event, leaving Maldonado to step in and take a fight where he will be a tremendous underdog. There had been a lot of talk about Maldonado moving down to the middleweight class, but instead he decided to go in the opposite direction and climb up to heavyweight for this bout. Maldonado has never fought as a heavyweight before, and now he takes on the seventh-ranked fighter in the division, and one that wants to prove he deserves to be in the title picture in Miocic. While Maldonado has an incredible opportunity here with all of the pressure on Miocic, the reality is that the better fighter should have little problem taking care of business and winning this fight via stoppage.

UFC Betting Pick: Stipe Miocic

The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 - Heavyweight
(10-3) Vitor Miranda vs. Antonio Carlos Junior (4-0)

This fight has the makings of a classic as Miranda is coming off four-straight stoppage wins in his professional career, and will look to end Carlos Junior’s undefeated professional record. Both fighters earned stoppage wins on the show, but Miranda is the more dangerous of the two, as he has more experience and is more well rounded with his knockout and submission skills. Carlos Junior is an underrated opponent with elite Jiu-Jitsu skills, but he will be overmatched in this bout, with Miranda coming out on top via either knockout or decision.

UFC Betting Pick: Vitor Miranda

The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 - Heavyweight
(6-0) Warlley Alves vs. Marcio Alexander Junior (13-0)

Something will have to give in the lead up to the main event as two fighters with undefeated records in Alves and Alexander Junior clash. Alves dominated on the show, scoring a pair of stoppage wins to improve to 6-0, and book his spot in the finale. Alexander Junior wasn’t nearly as dominant when it came to getting to this show, but he managed to remain undefeated and improve to 13-0 with a pair of split decision wins. Alexander Junior will rely on his unique style to dictate the pace of the fight, but he will need to be careful not to get caught by a very aggressive fighter in Alves. That said, we didn’t see the best that Alexander Junior has to offer during the show, so look for him to bounce back with a more dominant performance, and come out on top either by knockout or decision.

UFC Betting Pick: Marcio Alexander Junior
