UFC Betting Preview: Underdog Uriah Hall worth a cheeky bet to beat Gegard Mousasi once again

Bet on Hall to beat Mousasi

Gegard Mousasi and Uriah Hall have stepped up to the plate to headline UFC Fight Night 99 in Belfast in the wake of Gunnar Nelson pulling out due to injury. This eagerly awaited event takes place at The SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

These two world class middleweights have had different routes to this rematch since Hall KO’d Mousasi back in September of last year and as a result, the bookies have Mousasi as the overwhelming 1/6 favourite generally, with Coral offering a top price of 2/9. Uriah Hall meanwhile is an unconsidered 9/2 underdog with bet365, which could be a dangerous underestimation of a talented fighter on a mission of redemption against a man he’s already beaten.

Mousasi (40-6-2) is coming into this event on the back of a second-round TKO victory over UFC legend and future hall of famer Vitor Belfort at UFC 204 earlier this month. The Dutchman has won his last three on the bounce in good style and his lone loss since 2014 came against Hall in September 2015, via spinning kick-flying knee TKO.

Mousasi, 31, is one of the best middleweights in the world and has his eyes set on a title shot, but is taking a break from trying to move up in the rankings to avenge the loss. A man with a score to settle is a dangerous one, but is Uriah Hall a banana skin rival?  It remains to be seen.

Uriah Hall (12-7) has lost his last two fights, most recently via a first-round TKO defeat against Derek Brunson last month. In fact the New York native has not won since beating Mousasi last year. The 32-year old was a winner of The Ultimate Fighter 17 and had won five of six before this current slide in form.

We can expect Mousasi to be a lot more cautious of Hall’s kicking game for this fight and the first couple of rounds could be quite cagey with such a lot of pride at stake.

For Hall, this is a clear opportunity to get back on the bandwagon and the bookmakers are underestimating him here, to the extent that it is too tempting not to have a cheeky UFC bet on him to beat Mousasi again.
