Cedric Doumbe Betting Preview

Doumbe is undefeated through four professional battles and wants to improve. His previous success was a second round TKO over Pawel Klimas in the Mixed Martial Arts Grand Prix where he headlined back in March earlier this year.

All four of his wins have come by knockout. In addition, two of them have resulted in first round finishes. Against a weaker striker, he could prevail once more in the first round.

“The Best” has primarily spent a lot of his time kickboxing, dating back to 2015. In his MMA bouts so far, he has gone 3-0 in the MMA Grand Prix against solid competition.

He has earned a solid reputation in various rankings, such as 97th best welterweight in Western Europe and 27th best out of France. This is a great opportunity to use these rankings to motivate him to do more in this matchup.

Jordan Zebo Betting Preview

Zebo is also undefeated after four professional MMA bouts. His recent win was a third round TKO head kick over Mickael Marie Sardi in the Ares Fighting Championship 15 in May earlier this year.

In four of his wins, he has accumulated one knockout, one submission, and two decisions. He is a solid grappler, but not strong when it comes to striking.

“Le Fauve” had previously gone 3-3 in amateur MMA fights, but has looked much better professionally. He has gone 3-0 specifically in the AFC against solid competition.

His rankings show that he is the 129th best welterweight fighter in Western Europe and the 35th best in France. This would be tremendous if he can pull of the upset here.

  • Jordan Zebo: +225

  • Cedric Doumbe: -285

Zebo has enough skills to make this fight work in his favor. He is a threat on the ground and makes aggressive attempts early to move the fight towards the ground.

However, Doumbe is great on his feet and can handle a barrage of takedowns. This will potentially end early with some kind of knockout after the second round since Zebo will be aggressive with takedowns in the first.
