There are a lot of MMA fans who stick to the UFC and don’t look much beyond. Those who subscribe to FightPass have had their horizons expanded, as there are a ton of different events available on there. They will have one to watch this Sunday night, with Cage Warriors 130 in San Diego set to go off at 9:30 PM EST on UFC FightPass. There are 5 fights set to go on what looks to be a very competitive main card. There are a few fighters in the lineup looking to defend unbeaten records. Let’s take a closer look at all 5 fights as we make some predictions along the way so you can bet against their Cage Warriors odds.
MMA Betting Preview for Cage Warriors 130
Devin Goodale Vs Emilio Williams
The opening fight on the main card is a Welterweight bout that has the first unbeaten fighter putting his record on the line. Goodale has had 4 pro fights, but he comes into this bout with a 3-0 record after seeing his last fight end in a No Contest. Williams is at 5-3, but he also has a couple of No Contest fights in his pro history. I think this should be another win for Goodale, although I feel he might need to go the distance to get it.
Josh Wang-Kim Vs Jose Hernandez
Another of the unbeaten fighters is up next in a Bantamweight bout that looks to have been created to keep him on the winning path. Wang-Kim has won all 3 fights in his pro career, with 2 of those wins coming in the opening round. Hernandez has had some problems with consistency since going pro, carving out a 4-3 record. He has, though, won 2 in a row ahead of this one. I think this is another KO win for Wang-Kim.
Zak Pauga Vs Markus Perez
Next up we have another unbeaten fighter taking a bit of a step up in this Light Heavyweight bout. Pauga is 4-0, but he has had to work hard for those wins, with 3 of them going the distance versus a single opening round KO. Perez has been around a while and has put together a 12-5 record, but he comes into this one having lost 4 of his last 5. This is one that could go either way, but I am leaning towards Pauga for the win.
Jordan Bailey Vs Max Rohskopf
The co-main event of the night is a Lightweight bout that you have to think is skewed heavily in the favor of one of these fighters. Bailey is 6-4 as a pro and is unranked. He has also lost 3 of his last 4 fights, so he looks to be up against it versus Roshkopf, who is 6-1 and ranked #15 in the Lightweight division in the US West region. This looks to be another steppingstone type of fight for Rohskopf, who I think get the win via submission.
Spike Carlyle Vs JJ Ambrose
The main event of the night is a Catchweight bout that features a pair of fighters with a good deal of experience. Carlyle has been bouncing around after leaving the UFC with a 1-2 record. He has won both fights since then to get to 11-3 overall. Ambrose has never made it to the ranks of the UFC, but he has fought a lot over the years, putting together a 34-8 record. Carlyle has just that little bit more class and should get the win here.
