Now there's a main event worth betting on if you are looking to spice up the biggest fight of the night even more so. I'm going to make a play on Jiri. You can find my breakdown here but some other things came to light. Mainly, Reyes discussed his mental battle with internet trolls, and Prochazka looked to be in phenomenal shape on the scale. The underdog I like the most on the main card is Jacoby just given Cutelaba's mad blitzes and questionable chin lately but even that is a pretty risky play (not to mention it opened at +120 so we lost some value here if we bet it this late). Strickland looks to deserve that heavy favorite status for his bout with Jotko. Good parlay padder for sure.


Randa Markos (+139) vs Luana Pinheiro (-167)

Kai Kamaka (-154) vs T.J Brown (+128)

Poliana Botelho (-271) vs Luana Carolina (+218)

Loma Lookboonmee (-398) vs Sam Hughes (+305)

Andreas Michailidis (-231) vs KB Bhullar (+186)

Luke Sanders (-140) vs Felipe Colares (+116)

Two fighters missed weight here. One fight was scrapped because of it which is a shame because I felt really good about Gabriel Benitez. The other fighter who came in heavy was Luana Carolina. Botelho was going to walk through her regardless but this seems to further confirm it. It's pretty sad that I have a couple underdogs picked but have such little confidence in it that I can't even recommend a play. The higher risk bettors can check out the breakdowns for those fights here and here to decide if it's worth it. I'm going to pass on them. Nothing terribly exciting but a few plays that get close to even money.

Ever since renting my first UFC VHS at my local video store, I’ve been in love with the sport of MMA. I’ve watched every single fight that has ever taken place under the UFC banner over the past 25 years. Once I started doing incredibly well in fantasy leagues, I realized I could utilize my skills in fight analytics to make a profit on betting. My obsession with researching every aspect of a fight gave me a real edge in finding value. Since then, it's been one profitable year after the next. Watching your favorite sport is good, but getting paid while watching your favorite sport is better.
