CHASE SHERMAN VS WALDO CORTES-ACOSTA LOWDOWN
It is good to see Chase Sherman (16-10) on this card after Josh Parisian pulled out of UFC Vegas 64 last minute. Especially as he is coming off the biggest win of his career in knocking out Jared Vanderaa back in July. That took his UFC tally to 4-9 after four straight losses – unanimous decisions to Andre Arlovski (2021) and Parker Porter (2021) and submissions to Jake Collier (2022) and Alexander Romanov (2022).
Waldo Cortes-Acosta (8-0) is also coming off a win over Vanderaa and it is a fresh one only earning a unanimous decision three weeks ago. It was a fantastic UFC debut proving he can go a tough three rounds and it extended his unbeaten record. The perfect preparation for Sherman.
CHASE SHERMAN VS WALDO CORTES-ACOSTA PREDICTION
Sherman must have seen Vanderaa eat up Cortes-Acosta’s legs with numerous kicks. He was not defending them and Vanderaa should have really capitalized. You would hope Sherman will adopt a similar strategy especially as he has decent leg kicks himself.
Sherman does his best work with his hands, but if he relies on them too much, he will end up eating a bomb. Cortes-Acosta has thunderous hands and considering Sherman’s defence, the chances of one of his grenades landing is high.
That is why he is the favourite and we are backing him to find a knockout. However, considering the odds along with Sherman’s speed and experience, ‘The Vanilla Gorilla’ is worth a small punt.
