2022 Dana White’s Contender Series Week 10 Betting Analysis and MMA Picks

Written by on September 26, 2022

It has been another great season of the Dana White Contender Series, but all good things must come to an end. Week 10 represents the final action of season 6, and the hope is that we will close things out with a bang. The final event of the season is set to go on Tuesday night starting at 8 PM EST, with the good news being that you can catch all the action on ESPN+. There are 5 fights on the card, and for the fighters taking part, this is their last chance to impress the boss and perhaps land themselves a slot in the UFC. It’s all to fight for in the final week of the season, so let’s jump in and make some MMA Betting picks.

MMA Betting Picks and Preview for Dana White’s Contender Series: Season 6, Week 10

Ashiek Ajim Vs Mateus Mendonca

We get the evening started with a Bantamweight bout and a pair of fighters who have combined for just 1 loss. Akim comes into this one with a 6-1 record, winning 3 fights since taking the first loss of his pro career. That’s a good record, but it is even better for Mendonca, who is 9-0 as a pro, with 5 of those wins coming in Round 1. I think he’ll need to go a little deeper, but I like him to remain unbeaten.

Rafael Ramos Estevam Vs Joao Elias

Next up is a Flyweight bout and another fighter looking to maintain a perfect record. That would be Estevam, who comes into this one sitting at 10-0, with 6 of those wins coming inside the distance. This will be a tough one for him, though, as Elias is no slouch, going 17-3-1 in his career and coming into this one on a 3-fight win streak. This will be a battle, but I like Estevam to prevail.

Freddy Emiliano Linares Vs Jack Jenkins

Stepping into the octagon next are a pair of Featherweight fighters who are coming into this one in great form. Linares won bis first 4 pro fights before taking a loss, but he has rebounded nicely from that to win each of his last 4. Jenkins is 9-2 overall and has settled in after a wobbly start, winning each of his last 6 bouts. I don’t see this one going all the way, and I like Jenkins for the KO win.

Sam Patterson Vs Vinicius Cenci

The penultimate fight of the night is another good one, with a pair of in-form Lightweights stepping into the octagon. Patterson is 9-1-1 overall and is on a run that has seen him go unbeaten in his last 9 (8-0-1). Since losing the first fight of his pro career, Cenci has been unstoppable, winning 7 in a row, with the majority of those wins coming in the opening 2 rounds. I think he is in trouble here, though, as I like Patterson for the KO win.

Bo Nickal Vs Donovan Beard

We close the night out with a Middleweight bout that features a fighter pretty new to the professional game. That would be Nickal, who has just 3 fights under his belt. While he may be new, he comes into this one as a huge favorite over Beard, who has gone 7-1 as a pro and comes in on a 2-fight win streak. I think Nickal gets this one done quickly, winning by submission.
