It’s back to Las Vegas we go for another UFC Fight Night, with this one delivering 5 fights on the main card. As has been the case with most of the UFCs offerings recently, this one has another relatively early start, with the main card getting started at 4 PM EST. Given how much stuff there is going on in the world of MMA this weekend, the early start is sure to suit fight fans and bettors who want to take in as much of the weekend action as possible. There are some very good looking fights on this main card for this one, so let’s take a moment to break them down, with UFC odds and predictions for each bout.
MMA Betting Preview for UFC Fight Night: Dariush Vs Makhachev
Gregory Rodrigues (-155) Vs Armen Petrosyan (+125)
The proceedings begin with a Middleweight bout that looks very intriguing indeed. Rodrigues comes into this one as a slight favorite, stepping into the octagon with an 11-3 record and a run that has seen him win each of his last 4 fights, 3 of which went the distance. While Rodrigues has a pair of wins in the UFC, this will be the first time that Petrosyan has fought for the organization, going 6-1-0 to this point. I think Rodrigues wins this one by KO.
Arman Tsarukyan (-210) Vs Joel Alvarez (+170)
Next up is a Lightweight bout between a pair of fighters that come into this event with very good career records. Tsarukyan is 17-2 overall and is on a 4-fight win streak. He is 4-1 when fighting in the UFC. Alvarez has a very similar record to his opponent, going 19-2 overall, while also winning 4 in a row and going 4-1 in the UFC. This one has all the makings of a slugfest, but I like Tsarukyan to grind out a decision win.
Priscila Cachoeira (+140) Vs Ji Yeon Kim (-170)
The ladies are up next for a Flyweight bout, with both fighters really needing some type of reversal of fortune. Cachoeira comes into this bout with a 10-4-0 record, but she has been cold of late, losing 3 of her last 5, including her previous fight. It has been much the same story for Kim, who has the same record over her last 5 fights, but who has also lost 2 in a row. I think we see this one going the distance, with Kim getting the nod.
Misha Cirkunov (-120) Vs Wellington Turman (-110)
You need only take a quick peek at the odds to see that this Middleweight bout is about as evenly matched as it gets. Cirkunov is currently heading in the wrong direction, losing 2 in a row and 3 of his last 4, with 2 of them coming in the opening round. Turman really hasn’t been much better of late, losing 3 of his last 5 fights to fall to 17-5 in the process. I like Cirkunov to get back to winning ways via submission.
Islam Makhachev (-850) Vs Bobby Green (+425)
The headline event on the main card may actually be the most lopsided of the matchups. Mackhachev is 21-1-0 overall and has not lost a fight since way back in 2015. During that time, he has racked up 9 consecutive wins. Green comes into this bout with a 29-12-1 record, and while he has won each of his last 2 fights, those came on the heels of back-to-back losses. I don’t think this one goes very long, as I like Makhachev to get the submission win.
I have read enough, I need to place my bet now. What to do?
