Combate Global picks for Sept. 3 fight card in Miami
Before you tune in to Friday’s fight card, you need to see the picks from SportsLine’s MMA insider Ian Parker. A former fighter who’s been in the industry for more than 15 years, Parker is coming off a mind-boggling 2020 season. On the Anik & Florian Podcast, Parker went an astounding 58-14, returning $9,465 to $100 bettors who followed him. He hit 11 of his 17 underdog picks and 19 of 30 main events. Overall, Parker nailed an astonishing 81 percent of his plays.
For the Combate Global fight card on Sept. 3, Parker is backing Eduardo “Cyborg” Torres to stay unbeaten in a featured bantamweight matchup against Nohelin “Suave” Hernandez. A 27-year-old American fighter who trains at the American Kickboxing Academy, Hernandez has had more big-fight experience, but in his case that might not be a major benefit.
Hernandez fought twice in the UFC in 2019 and was also in the Combate Global Bantamweight Tournament in May. However, he was submitted by Marlon Vera and Jack Shore in his two UFC appearances and then lost a decision to Francisco Rivera in the first round of the Combate tournament.
Now, he’ll take on Torres, an unbeaten 26-year-old Chilean fighter who has proven that he can win in a variety of ways. Torres is 11-0 in his career with three knockouts, three submissions and five decision wins. However, given Hernandez’s struggles defending against submissions during his three-fight win streak, Parker sees that being Torres’ clear path to victory on Friday night.
