It’s a busy weekend in MMA and we have a lot of ground to cover, but we are going to do our best to ensure that you have some insight into as many fights as possible. For the purposes of this piece, we are going to focus on LFA 130, which is set to go off on Friday night at 9 PM EST with a 6-fight main card. We have the LFA Odds and predictions for all the fights on the main card, so let’s jump right into the action.
MMA Betting Preview for LFA 131: Argueta vs Silva
Gary Konkol (+245) Vs David Evans (-305)
We get the main card rolling with a Featherweight bout between a pair of fighters building their reputations. Konkol is 4-1 overall and comes into this bout on a 3-fight win streak. This is his first appearance in the LFA. Evans is coming off his first career loss after winning each of his first 4. He is also making the move to the LFA for the first time. I think Evans outlasts his opponent for the decision win.
Kegan Gennrich (+150) Vs Austin Lutchen (-180)
We have a Lightweight bout up next, with a couple of relatively new pro fighters squaring off. Gennrich has had a hard time staying consistent in the early part of his career, going 3-2 through his first 5 fights. Lutchen got off to a fast start, winning each of his first 5 bouts before taking his first pro loss last time out. This looks like an opportunity for Lutchen to bounce right back, which I think he does with the submission win.
Roland Dunlap (-300) Vs Hamza Salim (+240)
Next up is a Middleweight bout, with experience at the pro level once again at a minimum in this one. Dunlap is out to a fast start to his pro career, winning each of his first 3 fights, including a pair of wins under the LFA banner. Salim is coming in from Bellator, where he had an unsuccessful run, losing 2 fights to fall to 5-4 overall. I like Dunlap to get the win, although he may need to go the distance to get it.
Myktybek Orolbay (+120) Vs Jalin Fuller (-150)
This is a Welterweight bout between a pair of fighters who you have to say are very evenly matched. Orolbay comes into the LFA after going 6-1 through the first 7 fights of his pro career, including a win last time out. Fuller has the same 6-1 record, but it should be noted that all but 1 of those bouts came under the LFA banner. This looks like a good fight, but I like Fuller to get the KO win.
Tim Hilley (-125) Vs Darrius Flowers (-105)
The co-main event of the night is a Middleweight bout, and just one look at the odds tells you how close this one could be. Hilley won his first 7 fights before going on a 3-fight losing skid, which he snapped out of with a win in his last fight. Flowers is 10-5-1 overall and has win 2 in a row and 3 of his last 5 ahead of this bout. I like this one to go the distance, with Flowers edging it.
Daniel Argueta (-345) Vs Diego Silva (+270)
The main event of the night is for the vacant LFA Bantamweight Championship, and it promises to be a good one. Argueta comes into the title fight with a perfect record to defend, going 7-0 to this point in his career, including 3 wins in the LFA. Silva is 14-6, and while he has been a little up and down of late, he is on a modest 2-fight win streak. I think this one goes the distance, with Argueta winning the belt.
