While we are all waiting for the next big UFC event on Saturday night, we have a good one on Friday that is going to be available on UFC Fight Pass. LFA 99 will be held in Park City, Kansas on Friday night and will feature a main card that has 7 fights on it. That’s an awful lot of MMA action jam-packed into a single event and we have you covered. Let’s take a look at the main card schedule, while also making predictions for each fight so you can bet against their MMA odds.
LFA 99: Dennis Vs Cherant | MMA Betting Analysis
Darian Weeks (-540) Vs Craig Farley (+390)
The Welterweights are up first on Friday night and we have a fighter looking to make an impact in the earl stages of his career. Darian Weeks is 5-0 as a pro and will be making his first start under the LFA banner. He will be up against Craig Farley, who is 3-4 across several different organizations. Farley has lost 3 of his last 4 fights and looks to be in trouble here. I think Weeks gets the job done quickly with a KO.
Trevor Wallace (-550) Vs Cesar Gutierrez (+400)
The big men are up next, with a pair of heavyweights in the early stages of their career squaring off. Trevor Wallace is off to a perfect 3-0 start, with his most recent win coming in under 30 seconds, so this is a guy with some real power. Gutierrez ended a 2-fight losing skid with a win last time out and is now 2-2 in his pro career. I think we are looking at another quick one here, with Wallace getting the win.
Valerie Ann Marie Soto (-265) Vs Flore Hani (+205)
It’s the ladies next for a flyweight bout featuring a pair of fighters struggling with consistency. In her 5 fights to this point in her pro career, Soto has yet to put together back to back wins, so this would prove to be a potential turning point if she could win this fight. It is the same issue for Hani, who had gone 2-2 through her opening 4 fights. I think this one goes the distance, but I am on Soto to get the nod by decision.
Cody Brundage (-210) Vs Joseph Kropschot (+160)
Next up are the Welterweights, with a pair of fighters looking to improve on very good starts to their pro careers. Brundage won the first 5 fights of his career before losing in the opening round in the Contender Series last time out. It is a very similar story for Kropschot, who won 4 in a row before losing his last match. A pair of fighters looking for a bounce back win. I am going with Brundage via KO.
Fernando Padilla (-105) Vs Nate Richardson (-125)
This featherweight bout looks to be arguably the most evenly matched of the night, so expect a good one. Padilla is going through a bit of a rough patch of form, going 2-3 in his last 5 fights to take his career mark to 12-4. Richardson, who is 8-2 overall is heading in a more positive direction, winning 4 of his last 5. I think this one goes the distance, with Richardson getting the nod.
Brant Moore (-310) Vs Ago Huskic (+230)
The co-main event of the night will be contested in the Lightweight division. Since losing to Lucas Clay in the early part of his career, Moore has been on fire, winning 6 in a row, including 3 straight with the LFA. Huskic has not been bad either, though, going 8-2 in his pro career, which includes his current 3-fight win streak. This has all the making of a good fight, but I have Moore winning it via submission.
Myron Dennis (-110) Vs Fabio Cherant (-110)
The Light Heavyweight title in the LFA is vacant, but it will not stay that way for long, as one of these two fighters will end the night as the new champion. Dennis is on a 3-fight win streak, which includes his first win in the LFA last time out, taking his record to 18-7. Cherant is 6-1 as a pro fighter, and since losing his first fight, he has bounced back to win 2 in a row. A very even fight here, but I am on Cherant to come out on top.
