After watching Latvia's Mairis Briedis fight you can see why he is the betting favorite over Marco Huck. Briedis is 21-0 with 18 KO's and has showed some devastating knockout power, most notably when he left Manuel Charr face down on the canvas.
What made the knockout of Charr so impressive was that it occurred when Briedis was backing up against the ropes. This KO was no fluke because he was leaning back against the ropes when he knocked out Emre Altintas.
Briedis has more than just punching power, he has some nifty footwork that will give Marco Huck problems in this fight. Briedis is able to maneuver in-and-out of punching range, while Huck is more flat-footed and will present a target for the combination punching of Briedis.
Prediction: Mairis Briedis (-200)
