It is a big weekend of MMA action we have ahead of us, so you certainly have a lot of great betting opportunities coming your way over the next few days. Let’s turn to LFA 108, which is set for Friday night, where we will take a look at the 7-fight main card, which includes a title fight as the headliner. Let’s break the fights down for LFA 108: Fremd Vs Rodrigues and make some predictions so you can bet against their LFA odds.
MMA Betting Preview for LFA 108: Fremd Vs Rodrigues
Tyler Ray (-360) Vs Ernesto Ancona (+285)
We get the night rolling with a Welterweight bout between a pair of relatively inexperienced fighters. Ray has more fights under his belt, going 7-2 and winning 6 of his last 7 fights. Ancona is a relative newcomer and has just 3 pro fights, all of which he won quite quickly. I think Ray uses his experience to get the submission win in this one.
Bryce Meredith (-930) Vs Steven Merrill (+580)
If you are looking for an upset victory on Friday night, you are probably going to want to look beyond this Bantamweight bout. Bryce Meredith is making his first appearance as a pro in this one, but it looks as though LFA have set him up for a win, as they have him against a fighter on a 4-fight losing skid. I think Meredith gets this one done quickly.
Thomas Peterson (-580) Vs Richard Foster (+405)
Next up is a Heavyweight bout between fighters at very different stages of their respective careers. Peterson is 4-0 as a pro and has never had to go beyond the first round. Foster is 36 years old and on a run that has seen him lose 4 of his last 6 fights. This is one that Peterson should get over and done with in no time at all.
Tiani Valle (-105) Vs Kathryn Paprocki (-115)
This women’s Strawweight bout looks to be the most evenly matched of the night to this point. Valle is coming into this one on the heels of a loss that took her to 3-2 in her pro career. Paprocki is in a similar situation as her opponent, as she is also coming off a loss that dropped her to 2-1. This is a bit of a coin flip, but I am taking Paprocki to get the decision.
Clayton Carpenter (-315) Vs Nick Clem (+255)
We have two fighters early in their pro careers squaring off in this Flyweight bout. Carpenter is just 24 and is off to a perfect 3-0 start as a pro, while Clem is looking to bounce back after taking his first loss after a 3-0 start. This has all the makings of a good fight that is set to go the distance. I am taking Carpenter to win by decision.
Rodney Kealohi (+205) Vs Mark Climaco (-255)
The co-main event of the night is a Flyweight bout between an exciting pair of up-and-coming fighters. Kealohi has hit a nice run of form after starting 1-1 by going a perfect 4-0 in his last 4 fights. Climaco still remains perfect, going 5-0 to start his pro career, so a good matchup here. I have this one going the distance with Climaco getting the decision.
Josh Fremd (-235) Vs Gregory Rodrigues (+185)
By the time the night is over, one of these fighters will have taken the vacant Middleweight title. Fremd is 7-1 in his pro career and is on a fine run of form, winning each of his last 5 fights, with each of the last 3 coming in the opening round. Rodrigues is also on a good run, winning 7 of his last 8 fights. I like Fremd to get the KO win and the belt.
