We're giving out a free bet parlay for UFC 177. Check it out!
Carlos Diego Ferreira is a very talented lightweight on the rise in the UFC 155-pound division. Ferreira has some elite Brazilian jiu-jitsu skills, something he showcased in his UFC debut against Colton Smith. He also has above average judo so he can keep this fight upright if he wants to. Last but not least, Ferreira has some solid pop in his punches and should be able to score with his strikes against Nijem, a fighter who's known for having a poor ability to take punishment.
We're going to parlay Ferreira with Tony Ferguson, who's taking on Danny Castillo in the co-main event of the evening. Ferguson has a significant reach advantage against Castillo and his solid wrestling background should help him keep the fight standing where he wants it. As long as Ferguson can avoid the big right hand of Castillo, he should be in terrific shape. Castillo is 35 years old as a lightweight, five years older than Ferguson, and his chin is much weaker as he's been knocked out or hurt much more often in his MMA career. If Ferguson remains composed, he should not only win, but likely score a knockout.
