The MMA Vivisection - UFC 228: Woodley vs. Till picks, odds, & analysis

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch return to breakdown this week’s UFC card in Dallas, TX. With picks and odds for every bout on the event. From Tyron Woodley vs. Darren Till in the headline slot, down to Geoff Neal vs. Frank Camacho in the opening prelims.

UFC 228 is a strange mishmash of thrilling, predictable, and - depending on your viewpoint - utterly boring. The card is filled with relevant, high level bouts. Fourteen of the 28 fighters on the card are ranked and men’s bantmaweight and women’s strawweight could be headed for a shakeup. There are also some great action fights. Alhassan vs. Price and Magomedsharipov vs. Davis should be thrilling. The two title fights, at the top of the event, however?

Woodley vs. Till and Montano vs. Shevchenko may draw some eyes under the false pretense that Till and Shevchenko are amazing finishers, but their actual interest is going to lie in a a more nuanced set of expectations... either that or the fights will just suck.
