There is something a little different coming your way this weekend in the LFA. First off, we have LFA 111, which is set to go on Friday night, which will be followed by LFA 112 on Sunday. The Sunday event features a Welterweight tournament of sorts, with the winners of the opening two fights of the night meeting later in the evening to battle it out for the vacant title. There are a total of 5 fights on the main card ahead of the title fight, so let’s take a closer look at those along with their LFA odds.
MMA Betting Preview for LFA 112: Welterweight Grand Prix
Gabriel Bonfim (+140) Vs Brenner Alberth (-170)
This is the first of the two Welterweight fights that will see the winner go on to take a shot at the vacant title, and it’s a beauty. Both of these men come in with unbeaten records – Bonfim at 10-0 and Alberth at 8-0 – and neither of them have yet to go the distance. That might just change here, though, as I am taking the underdog to win and move on by decision.
Diego Dias (-115) Vs Carlos Leal (-115)
The winner of this one goes on to meet the winner of the opening fight on the main card, but as you can see by the odds, this one is a tough call. Dias has been fighting in Brazil of late and comes into this one on a 3-fight win streak. Leal is the winner of 6 straight and fought and won in Bellator back in 2017, so plenty of experience there. I have Dias winning here by KO.
Junior Luiz (+150) Vs Kaynan Kruschewsky (-180)
It is the Lightweights who are up next for what looks to be a very evenly matched bout between a pair of fighters in good runs of form. Luiz is 7-3 in his pro career, but it is what he has done lately that is impressive, winning each of his last 4 fights. Kruschewsky took the first loss of his pro career a couple of fights back, bit he did win last time out, taking his career mark to 10-1. I am looking at Kruschewsky to win by decision.
Rafael Ramos (-120) Vs Filipe Estevez (-110)
Something has to give in the Flyweight bout, as one of these fighters will lose their current unbeaten record. Ramos is 9-0 and has closed out 5 of his 9 fights inside the distance, while Estevez comes in with a 7-0 record and 5 wins by stoppage. Both of these men are very evenly matched, and both have the ability to get the job done quickly. This one, though, will go the distance I believe, with Ramos coming away with the win.
Carlos Augusto da Silva (-255) Vs Otto Rodrigues (+200)
This Featherweight bout serves at the co-main event ahead of the title fight between the winners of the 2 Welterweight bouts from earlier in the evening. Da Silva comes in with a 19-2 record, which includes wins in each of his last 17 fights. Rodrigues is 12-1 and has wins in each of his last 11, so these are two fighters who are very familiar with winning. I think this one goes all the way, with da Silva getting the victory by decision.
