Daniel Cormier Clear Favourite To Beat Gustafsson at UFC 192

Published on September 19th, 2015 8:22 pm EST

Everybody is talking about UFC 193: Rousey vs Holm and UFC 194: Aldo vs McGregor, but UFC 192: Cormier vs Gustafsson is a fantastic card that shouldn't be slept on.

The main event of this card, which also features Johny Hendricks vs Tyron Woodley and Ryan Bader vs Rashad Evans, will see Daniel Cormier attempt to defend his Light Heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafsson. Cormier was named the Light Heavyweight champion after he defeated Anthony "Rumble" Johnson, while Alexander Gustafsson was named the challenger thanks, in large part, to his extremely competitive fight against Jon Jones. The UFC raised some eyebrows when they announced Cormier vs Gustafsson, thanks to the fact that Gustafsson was absolutely smoked in his last fight by Anthony Johnson.

Daniel Cormier is the clear favourite to beat Gustafsson at UFC 192 - here are the current betting odds:

Daniel Cormier, -350
Alexander Gustafsson, +265

Cormier is seen as having the advantage thanks to his fantastic wrestling and power. In order to win this fight, Gustafsson will have to beat Cormier up on the feet, and Cormier certainly has the ability to engage in a dirty slugfest against the Swedish giant. Gustafsson, on the other hand, will be in very big trouble if Cormier can take the fight to the ground.

I would expect that this fight will go much the way of Cormier/Johnson - Gustafsson will look good early and perhaps even wobble the champion. In the end, however, Cormier's grinding style will eventually get the best of the Swedish superstar.
