Aleksei Oleinik vs Maurice Greene Predictions & Betting Odds - UFC 246 Pick

Aleksei "The Boa Constrictor" Oleinik (57-13-1) and Maurice "The Crochet Boss" Greene (8-3-0) face each other in a Heavyweight bout at UFC 246 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday night.

The Russian veteran comes into this fight off the back of two knockout straight quick-fire losses. The first loss came after just 12 seconds against Walt Harris in July 2019, with the second KO taking 1:07 in a Grappling Bout against Gordon Ryan just last month.

The 42 year-old Oleinik isn’t known as “The Boa Constrictor” for nothing, with 45 of his career wins coming by submission.

Betting Odds - Winner

The 33 year-old Greene was also beaten by a first round KO in his last fight against Sergei Pavlovich in October last year.

The American has a considerable height advantage over Oleinik and a couple of inches in reach. He can throw hard, straight punches, which could certainly cause damage to a fighter that hasn’t been difficult to hit.

Were he to beat Oleinik, this would be Greene’s first ranked win. By contrast, given his age and his last couple of performances, another defeat here could spell the end for Oleinik in the cage.
