LFA 109: McKinney Vs Irizarry Betting Analysis

Written by on June 3, 2021

There is another huge weekend of MMA action coming and we are going to do our best to cover all the events of the next few days. We will get the ball rolling with LFA 109, which you can watch on UFC Fight Pass on Friday night starting at 9 PM EST. While there are no title fights on the main card, there are a total of 6 bouts that all look to be well worth watching and wagering on. Let’s take a close look at each of those fights so you can get ready to bet against their LFA odds.

MMA Betting Preview for LFA 109: McKinney Vs Irizarry

Jacobi Jones Vs Caleb Hall

The night begins with a Lightweight bout between a pair of fighters who are in the early stages of their pro careers. Jones has just 1 fight under his belt, but it was an impressive opening round win that came at LFA 103. Hall is making the move to the LFA after a couple of split decision wins in the Colorado Combat Club, so definitely a step up. I like Jones to get the win by decision.

Manuel Medina Vs Kevin Fernandez

It is a Flyweight bout that is up next and one that will have one of these fighters making his pro debut. It has been an uneven start to life as a pro for Medina, who has gone 1-1 through his opening 2 fights. He is, though, coming off an impressive win. This will be the pro debut for Fernandez, who ended life as an amateur on a winning note. I think he makes a winning start to his life as a pro fighter.

Gerrica Trias Vs Ky Bennett

We move onto the women for the next fight, which is in the Flyweight division. Again, it is a pair of relative newcomers squaring off, with Trias coming into this one the heels of her first pro win, which was a 3rd round KO. Bennett has struggled in her short time as a pro, going just 1-2 through her opening 3 fights. I think she is onto another beating here.

Edwin Cooper Jr. Vs Robson Junior

A pair of Featherweights go head-to-head in what may be the most evenly matched fight of the night to this point. Cooper bounced back from a loss to win last time out, moving to 3-1 and going the distance for the first time as a pro. Junior is a perfect 3-0 and has made things look easy so far, winning all 3 fights in the opening round. It may take a little longer here, but I like Junior to win by submission.

Askar Askar Vs Justin Wetzell

The co-main event of the night is a Bantamweight bout featuring a pair of fighters who have just 2 losses between them. Askar started out by winning each of his first 10 fights before taking his first loss. He bounced back from that with a win last time out. Wetzell is 6-1 and on a 5-fight winning streak, but I think that Askar is going to be too much for him to handle.

Terrance McKinney Vs Michael Irizarry Ortiz

The headline event of the night is a Lightweight bout that promises to be a good one. McKinney is recovering from a wobble that saw him lose 2 in a row and is looking to win his 3rd straight to move to 10-3. He will have his hands full with Ortiz, who is 12-3 and the winner of 4 of his last 5 fights. I am on McKinney with the KO in this one.
