Mendonca trains at Chute Boxe, the same gym as Charles Oliviera and Anderson Silva in Brazil. This gym breeds beasts and the fact that he's been training there awhile holds weight on its own. Mateus is undefeated and won his last 6/9 fights by finish including his last 2 of 3. On the other hand, you have Ashiek Ajim, who starts his fights swinging. He has knocked out his last 3 guys in the first round, but hasn't fought someone of Mateus' caliber. The one time Ajim lost was because someone survived a round with him and he gassed out which turned into him getting finished. I bet Mateus withstands his early storm and gets a finish in round 2 or 3.
Capper Penguin's UFC Contender Series Parlay - 9/27
Leg 1: Mateus Mendonca double chance by KO/SUB
Leg 2: Bo Nickal double chance by KO/SUB
Bo Nickel is the most exciting/dominant fighter on the card and there's a reason why this leg is -900. He finished both of his opponents in the first round and nothing should be different tonight. I do believe Beard will be his toughest fight yet that's why I'm taking a finish within three rounds, but there will be a finish for Bo at some point nonetheless.
Remember, these guys are motivated to find a finish to improve their chances to secure a UFC contract. Best odds and options are found on DK.
