UFC Fight Night Dern Vs Yan Event Info

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 2 at 7:00 pm ET
  • Where: UFC Apex, Las Vegas, NV
  • TV / Streaming: ESPN / ESPN+

Mike Davis -175 vs Viacheslav Borshchev +150 

Favored Mike Davis is in excellent form. Davis has won 4-of-5. But before jumping all over the chalk, it’s important to note that 4 fights happened in 2019 and the fifth occurred in January, 2020.

Underdog Viacheslav Borshchev had won 4 straight before losing via unanimous decision to Marc Diakiese on March 26 this year. Saturday night will be Borshchev’s third bout in 2022. No doubt, he can beat Davis.

John Castaneda -190 vs Daniel Santos +160

Castaneda versus Santos should be one of the main card’s most competitive bouts. Castaneda has won 3-of-4. In his last, a UFC Fight Night on Feb. 5, the chalk in this forced Miles Johns to submit in the third round.

Santos lost his last match. But Daniel has fought the better competition overall and the underdog in this rarely loses 2 in a row. Santos gets the nod.

Sodiq Yusuff -900 vs Don Shainis +600

The underdog has a fantastic 12-3 record. But this is the first time Don Shainis takes on a UFC fighter. 

Sodiq Yusuff is 12-2. Yusuff is fantastic in the stand up, winning 6-of-7 via KO or TKO. Shainis might have a slight advantage if the bout goes to the ground. But a battle on the mat likely won’t happen because Sodiq has a 3.5 inches reach advantage. The chalk wins.

Raoni Barcelos -230 vs Trevin Jones +190 

Barcelos heads into this on a 2-match losing streak. The favorite has a 16-3 record. So the losing streak suggests Barcelos is in the worst form of his career.

Like the chalk, Trevin Jones will also enter the Octagon on a 2-match losing streak. Jones’ losses were by submission and unanimous decision. This could go either way. Trevin has a 3-inch reach advantage and offers much better odds. Backing the dog makes sense.

Randy Brown -310 vs Francisco Trinaldo +250

Underdog Trinaldo has vast experience in the Octagon. Francisco’s record is 28-8. Now 44, the veteran is 9-0 via TKO or KO wins and 5-3 via submission victories.

Favorite Randy Brown has a 15-4 record. Brown has also won 3-of-4 and has an 8-inch reach advantage. We’d love to back Francisco. But Randy has the advantages. 

UFC Fight Night: Randy Brown  

Mackenzie Dern -240 vs Yan Xiaonan +200

12-2 Mackenzie Dern has won 4 of her last 5 bouts. The loss happened in a bout versus tough Marina Rodriguez. 

Yan Xiaonan has lost her last couple. One of the losses was against Rodriguez via split-decision. No doubt, Dern can win this. But it’s difficult to understand the odds difference. At +200, Yan is an overlay.
