Things are a little different for UFC Vegas 35, as we have fighters battling it out for a shot at making it to the UFC. The Ultimate Fighter is back, and we have a pair of TUF fights on the main card that will decide who is in and who is all, so a lot going on in this event. Besides those 2 bouts, we also have 4 more fights to cover, so let’s not waste any more time. Here are the main card UFC odds and predictions for UFC Fight Night: Barboza Vs Chikadze.
MMA Betting Preview for UFC Fight Night: Barboza Vs Chikadze
Gerald Meerschaert (+450) Vs Makhmud Muradov (-650)
The main card begins with a Middleweight bout that looks very unlikely to go the distance. Meerschaert is a veteran fighter who comes in with a 32-14 record, but he has also lost 3 of his last 5 fights. On the flipside, Muradov is on the rise after winning 14 in a row to move to 25-6. He is also unbeaten in the UFC. This should be a quick KO win for Muradov.
Andrei Petroski (-520) Vs Michael Gillmore (+370)
The Middleweights are up again in the second fight of the night, with this one also looking a little lopsided. Petroski is looking to bounce back after taking the first loss of his pro career last time out to fall to 5-1. Gillmore comes in at 6-3 and is on a 3-fight winning streak, but this looks like a bit of a step up for him. I have to go with Petroski here.
Kevin Lee (-145) Vs Daniel Rodriguez (+115)
Next up is a Welterweight bout that looks to be one of the most evenly matched bouts of the night. Lee comes in as a slight favorite, but he has also lost 3 of his last 4 fights to fall to 18-6 in his pro career. Rodriguez is on a much better run of form, winning 2 in a row and 4 of his last 5. Despite the recent records, I think Lee does enough to get the win.
Ricky Turcios (-150) Vs Brady Hiestand (+120)
The Featherweights take to the octagon for the first of the two TUF Championship fights on the night. Turcios comes in with an impressive 10-2 record, but both of those losses have come in his last 4 fights. Hiestand comes in at 5-1 and is coming off an impressive first-round win last time out. This one goes the distance, with Turcios getting the win.
Bryan Battle (-170) Vs Gilbert Urbina (+140)
This is the second of the TUF Championship fights and it is in as the co-main event of the night. Battle got off to a wobbly 1-1 start in his pro career, but he has since won 4 in a row. It’s a very similar story when talking about Urbina, who comes in at 6-1 overall. This has all the makings of a fantastic fight, but I think Battle gets the decision.
Edson Barboza (-120) Vs Giga Chikadze (-110)
The main event of the night is a Featherweight bout that promises to be a true battle. For a while, it looked as though Barboza was on the way out, but he has turned things around and won 2 fights in a row. Chikadze is an impressive 13-2 and has now won 8 in a row. I am a little on the fence with this one, but I am leaning towards Barboza.
I have read enough, I need to place my bet now. What to do?
