Rafael Hudson is a 32-year-old Brazilian fighter. Apocalipse has fought 8 professional fights throughout his career, in 5 of them he has taken the victory, which shows Hudson’s effectiveness. He has lost in his last duels against Omar Salomonov and Sylwester Miller, which is why the South American comes to Dublin eager to regain the victory.
The Brazilian comes with special enthusiasm to this Ciaran Clarke vs Rafael Hudson bout, as it is his first participation in Bellator 285. The Irishman should not be confident, as Rafael could pull off a big surprise at the 3Arena.
Taking everything into account, JefeBet‘s bet on Ciaran Clarke vs Rafael Hudson leans towards the former. Although Rafael Hudson is a fighter with a longer career and a great track record, his recent fights have not been favorable. In contrast, Clarke, although younger, has had some great performances recently.
Regardless of the final outcome, this matchup will be a great show for those who enjoy mixed martial arts, plus the fight will take place in the middle of a fantastic night of Bellator 285.
Prediction: Ciaran Clarke wins by decision.
