Minty Bets is joined by Kevin Iole to preview the UFC bout between Uriah Hall vs. Anderson Silva on Sat. October 31 from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.
MINTY BETS: We've got UFC Fight Night back here in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, October 31. Not only is it Halloween, but it's Nevada Day. I'm here with Kevin Iole to give us his best bets for the main event, which is a middleweight bout between Anderson Silva, a plus 185 dog, versus Uriah Hall, a minus 225 favorite. Kevin, what do you think about this fight?
KEVIN IOLE: Interesting fight, because it's Anderson Silva's final fight. The great career of Anderson Silva, who, at one point, was considered the greatest fighter in the world, the greatest fighter of all time, hanging it up after this one, Minty. And so you wonder how that's going to affect him.
I think physically, Uriah Hall has everything going for him in this fight. Uriah Hall is quicker, he's stronger, every physical advantage in the fight. But Anderson Silva is still an elite level striker, and he's going to want to go out with a victory.
That being said, I have to go with Hall in this fight. I think Hall is going to spoil the party for Anderson, unfortunately, the storybook finish won't be there. I will lay the money. I will take Uriah Hall, and I'm going to take Uriah Hall by a late finish.
MINTY BETS: Ooh, all right. No fairy tale ending for Anderson Silva. Thank you so much, Kevin. Good luck this weekend.
KEVIN IOLE: Thanks Minty, good talking to you.
