While posting an 8-3 record at UFC 248, Marley told SportsLine members to expect middleweight champion Israel Adesanya (-275) to retain his title against Yoel Romero (+235) by unanimous decision. He argued that Adesanya would pick Romero apart while on his feet and was proven correct as the champ dominated the action with leg kicks. Also, Marley went a stunning 9-2-1 at UFC Fight Night 170, the last UFC event. Anyone who has consistently followed Marley is WAY UP.
For UFC 249 on May 9, we can tell you Marley is backing Fabricio Werdum (-310) to beat Aleksei Oleinik (+255) in a battle of veteran heavyweights. He's also backing one man who's "the scariest fighter alive." You ABSOLUTELY need to see all of Marley's picks before making any of your own!
