Glover Teixeira vs Jiri Prochazka Fight Prediction

It is not easy to accept the fact that fair odds are offered on these fighters. The fact is that Jiri is extremely dangerous for Glover in a fight on his feet, while the Brazilian will definitely run him over as soon as they are on the ground. And it is worth noting that Prochazka will be on the ground floor in any case, since the same Dominic Reyes, who does not have good wrestling technique, managed to transfer him and even keep him on the floor for some time, and with Teixeira such oversights are unacceptable. What does an applicant need for a quiz?

A quick knockout, which can be organized on the waste when Glover moves closer, or a systematic pulling apart throughout all rounds - but this path is more risky. And everything is clear with the champion - ground and submission, he cannot see happiness in other planes. Both athletes have a high percentage of early victories, so their meeting should not become protracted. And this means that as an option, you can use a bet on total rounds less than 2.5 for 1.5

Well, as a winner, it would be wiser to choose a younger, charged and powerful Prochazka, who really has a good chance of finishing in the first segment. Install the 1xbet app and place a bet on the favorite!
