UFC on ESPN: Covington vs. Lawler takes place on August 3, 2019 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, United States
Here is my free pick:
Kennedy Nzechukwu wins via Decision (+400) x1
Darko Stosic vs. Kennedy Nzechukwu – Main card (ESPN)
I believe Nzechukwu’s size and reach advantage is going to prove the difference in this 205 pound scrap and I see him defeating Darko Stosic as an slight underdog. That said, the Serbian is tough and not easy to put away, so I think the chances of Nzechukwu taking a hard fought decision over him are much greater than him earning a finish. After tasting defeat for the first time in his professional mixed martial arts career in his last outing, I think Nzechukwu is ready to return to the win column, and I think this fight is a good opportunity for him to do so.
