Josh Fremd -170 vs Tresean Gore +145
Favored Josh Fremd has a height advantage that gives him an edge. Fremd is 6’ 4” while Treasean Gore is 6’ 0”.
Also, Gore has lost his last couple of fight. Bryan Battle beat Gore via unanimous decision and Cody Brundage knocked out Gore in the first round.
Fremd has won 3-of-5. Gore must strike up in this match to get to Fremd’s face. The taller mixed martial artist can strike down, which is why the chalk gets the nod.
UFC Fight Night: Josh Fremd
Waldo Cortes-Acosta -220 vs Jared Vanderaa +180
Chalk Waldo “Salsa Boy” Cortes-Acosta has won all 7 of his MMA bouts. Cortes-Acosta made his UFC debut on Dana White’s Contender Series: Season 6 Week 2. Waldo beat Danilo Suzart via first round knockout.
Jared Vanderaa is 12-9, which by itself isn’t a terrible record. But Vanderaa has lost 4 straight. 3 of the 4 losses happened in 2022. Salsa Boy gets it done.
UFC Fight Night: Waldo Cortes-Acosta
Tim Means +150 vs Max Griffin -175
Means is the taller fighter, 6’ 2” to 5’ 11”, but Max Griffin will enter the Octagon the chalk. Griffin has won 3-of-5.
Max lost his last fight, but it was against the very good Neil Magny. In his bout before, Griffin beat Carlos Condit via unanimous decision.
Tim Means has also won 3-of-5. Means lost his last bout via submission to Kevin Holland. Tim is 5-6 via submission victories. He’s 19-2 via knockout or technical knockout wins.
Griffin is good standing up and on the ground. So if Max gets Tim to the mat, it could be over.
UFC Fight Night: Max Griffin
