As a late notice debutant, who was clobbered on contender series by Aleksa Camur, Cherant seems like a fairly obvious fade. This is a massive step down in competition for Menifield, coming off of his first two career losses against Devin Clark and Ovince St. Preux who were both able to extend their respective fights into the second round.

All of Menifield’s wins have come in the first six minutes of the fight, and if nothing else Cherant has five-round cardio — evidenced by his win at LFA on Feb. 12. He also has a pretty slick ground game under the guidance of Lauzon Mixed Martial Arts, which could help to slow this fight down.

But Menifield is incredibly powerful and difficult to keep down, and if he goes to his traditional bat out of hell game plan, I’d imagine he catches Cherant early.

Menifield vs. Cherant Pick

Menifield wins in Round 1 is worth a small play down to +135, and you could look to come in live on Cherant if he is still conscious after five minutes.

The Pick: Alonzo Menifield Wins in Round 1 (+185, 0.25u) / Note: Potential live bet on Cherant after Round 1 (+200 or better)
