Fighter Spotlight: Pro Fighting League | Tyler Diamond
By; Billy Brisbane (@gettin_BILLs_ )
This week’s fighter spotlight is coming from tonight’s PFL event main card on ESPN2/ESPN+. England’s Brandon Loughane takes on Tyler Diamond as the first fight on the main card. Loughnane currently leads the Featherweights with 6 points after his first-round KO over 11-4 Brazilian Sheymon Moraes.
Loughnane is on an impressive 6 fight win streak, most notably, a win over Bill Algeo on Dana White’s Contender Series. He’s a solid striker who keeps good range and a solid gas tank but there’s one red flag which is wrestling. Tyler Diamond coming out of Team Alpha male with a 12-1 record is being disrespected by the oddsmakers. There’s a lot of recency bias by the public in this fight and all the money is coming in on the favorite as high as -305 on DK Sportsbook. I would like this fight as Loughnane -130 and Diamond +110.
I strongly disagree with the oddsmakers here. Diamond is the much better wrestler here in this spot, my only concern would be the stand-up. It’s gotten a lot better and improving in each fight but he absorbs a lot of punches. This fight should go to a decision too and I much rather have a +210 ticket than the favorite in a parlay. Diamond’s wrestling will be too much for Loughnane to handle and the dogs will continue barking on these PFL cards.
