MMA Betting Preview for LFA 138: Farias Vs Tanaka

Christian Natividad Vs Jordan Harris

We get the evening started with a Flyweight bout and a pair of fighters who have yet to taste defeat. Natividad is 4-0, and after winning his first 2 comfortably, he has been forced to go the distance in his last 2. Harris is 3-0 and has had a similar path to his opponent, with 1 finish and 2 that went the distance. A tight one here, but I am on Natividad for the win.

Motaz Askar Vs Chris Mecate

Next up, we move onto a Catchweight bout that looks to be rather evenly matched. Askar is a perfect 3-0 and has a pair of Round 1 finished in those victories. Mecate is 4-1 and bounced back with a win last time out after taking his first career loss. This should be a good one and I have Askar for the KO win.

Jota Ninomiya Vs Nick Talavera

This Feather weight bout is a little tougher to predict, as we have a pair of relatively inexperienced fighters squaring off. Ninomiya has just 1 pro fight under his belt, although he got the win in just 30 seconds. Talavera has been up and down to start his career, going 2-1. I like Ninomiya to get the submission win.

AJ Cunningham Vs Shea Conley

We are moving up to some more experienced fighters with this Featherweight bout. Cunningham is 8-2, and while he won last time out, his last fight with LFA ended in defeat. Conley is a spotty 6-4, but he does come into this one having won 4 in a row. I think that run ends on Friday, as I like Cunningham for the win.

Elijah Johns Vs Masuto Kawana

Next up, we have a Featherweight bout that I think looks set to go the distance. Johns is 8-2 and winner of 6 of his last 7 fights, all of which came under the LFA banner. Kawana lost his first pro fight, but has put together 5 straight wins since then, but this will be his first LFA bout. Slight edge to Johns in this one.

Askar Askar Vs Diego Silva

The co-main event of the night is a Bantamweight bout between a pair of fighters who have been a little up and down of late. Askar comes in with a 13-2 record, but both of those losses have come in his last 5. Silva is 14-7 and has also lost 2 of his last 5, including his previous fight. I like this one to go the distance, with Askar getting the win.

Ary Farias Vs Michinori Tanaka

We close the night out with a Bantamweight bout and another one set to go the distance. Farias comes in with an 11-3 record and a good run of form that has seen him win 4 of his last 5 fights. Tanaka is 14-3 and winner of 3 in a row after experiencing a bit of a stumble. I like to Tanaka to get the decision win here.
