UFC Fight Island Whittaker vs Till
- When: Saturday, July 25
- Where: Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, UAE
Whittaker vs Till Odds
In the main event, the 2 participants appear evenly matched in almost every way. Darren Till heads into this fight off a win against Kevin Gastelum. Robert Whittaker lost his last fight. But Whittaker lost in a championship bout. We should give Whittaker the benefit of the doubt.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Robert Whittaker
Correia vs Kianzad Odds
Kianzad is a tough fighter. If vet Bethe Correia can get her on the ground, though, she may have the advantage. Backing the dog makes sense.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Bethe Correia
Werdum vs Gustafsson Odds
Fabricio Werdum has lost his last couple of fights. On his best day, he can hang with Alexander Gustafsson. But Fabricio’s best days appear well behind him.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Alexander Gustafsson
Nogueira vs Rua Odds
In this battle between a couple of legendary MMA artists, Mauricio Rua has the edge over Rogerio Nogueira. Rogerio has lost 3-of-5 while Rua drew in his last fight.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Mauricio Rua
Grundy vs Evloev Odds
Movsar Evloev is 12-0. Mike Grundy is 12-1. We’d love to back Mike, but the undefeated Evloev has skills for days. He can fight equally well on the ground or standing up.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Movsar Evloev
Sobotta vs Oliveira Odds
Peter Sobotta lost his last bout. But, he’s 10-1 via submissions. If Peter can use his 2-inch height advantage to keep Oliveira away from him in the stand up, he’ll have a shot.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Peter Sobotta
Collier vs Aspinall Odds
11-4 Jake Collier does have a ground game to go along with his striking ability. He’s shorter than Tom Aspinall, though. Also, Jake hasn’t fought since 2017.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Tom Aspinall
Ronson vs Dalby Odds
18-3-1 Nicolas Dalby has won via TKO/KO, technical submission, and unanimous decision in his last 5 bouts. He should handle Ronson.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Nicolas Dalby
Craig vs Antigulov Odds
12-4-1 Paul Craig has a 5-inch height advantage and 6-inch reach advantage over Gadzhimurad Antigulov. Not only that, but Gadzhimurad last fought in April 2019. Antigulov has too many things he must overcome on Saturday.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Paul Craig
Esparza vs Rodriguez Odds
Carla Esparza fought at UFC 249. She’s hungry to get back into the Octagon. Marina Rodriguez is 12-0-1, though, and has a 5-inch height advantage over the wrestling Esparza.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Marina Rodriguez
Herbert vs Trinaldo Odds
Francisco Trinaldo has won 3-of-4. Herbert has some physical advantages. Still, Trinaldo’s experience should lead him to a victory.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Francisco Trinaldo
Stolze vs Emeev Odds
Stolze is taller than Ramazan Emeev, but Ramazan gets the edge in this fight. The chalk is 18-4 and can fight standing up or on the mat.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Ramazan Emeev
Pessoa vs Boser Odds
Pessoa has a puncher’s chance. If Boser leaves himself open, Raphael Pessoa can get to him. Give the underdog a shot to pull off the upset.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Raphae Pessoa
Castaneda vs Wood Odds
John Castaneda has won 3-of-4. 2 of the wins were via submission, a rear naked choke and an arm triangle. The underlay chalk had won 8 in a row before a loss this past February. The loss could be a sign that Wood’s form has turned around. We’re taking a stab on Castaneda.
UFC Fight Island Pick: John Castaneda
McKee vs Chimaev Odds
It’s tough to back Rhys McKee against Khamzat Chimaev. Khamzat is 7-0. He just fought on July 17 on the Kattar vs Ige undercad. All Chimaev did was force John Phillips to submit in Round 2. Khamzat easily wins.
UFC Fight Island Pick: Khamzat Chimaev
