Aleksei Oleinik vs Walt Harris Prediction & Betting Odds - UFC Betting Picks
July 18, 2019
On the undercard for UFC on ESPN 4 two exciting heavyweight clashes taking place just before the main event. The co-main event is a fight between super-veteran Aleksei ‘Boa Constrictor’ Oleinik (57-12-1) and American slugger Walt ‘The Big Ticket’ Harris (12-7-1).
Aleksei Oleinik may be from Europe, but the BJJ black belt fights out of the American Top Team camp, so he comes from one of the best gyms around. At this point in his career, it all comes down to what frame of mind and body he is in. At the age of 42, he still has some fire in the belly. He may have lost to Alistair Overeem by TKO back in April, but he beat Mark Hunt by submission before that and Walt Harris will have to be very careful if this fight goes to the ground.
Walt Harris has plenty of power and experience, but Oleinik presents a major challenge for the American betting lines favourite. If Harris can get inside and land, then Oleinik could be in trouble, but all the Ukrainian needs is to grab an arm or a leg and his opponent will be in serious trouble.
Aleksei Oleinik vs Walt Harris Betting Lines & Tip
The UFC odds & betting predictions for this Oleinik Vs Harris bout is a tight call on both counts. Aleksei Oleinik is one of the most experienced heavyweights in the world, with a remarkable 57-12-1 record from his 70 Pro MMA fights during a long career.
Walt Harris is no spring chicken at 36, but he still has a six year youth advantage over his Ukrainian rival here and that might just prove to be the difference on the night.
The vast majority of Oleinik’s wins are by submission, he is a legitimate specialist in that art and his Jiu-Jitsu skills can come to the fore here once again.
