Jordan Wright +120 vs Dusko Todorivic -210
Favorite Dusko Todorivic shows a single win, over Maki Pitolo, in his last 5 bouts. Todorivic beat Pitolo via knockout at a UFC Fight Night that happened last Dec. 4.
Underdog Jordan Wright is 12-3. Like Todorivic, Wright has won a single bout in his last 4. Jordan beat Jamie Pickett via knockout at UFC 262 last May.
Either one of these guys can win this bout. Right now, the odds favor Wright. So unless the odds flip and Todorivic offers the better number, Wright is the play.

Askar Askarov -260 vs Brandon Royval +210
Favorite Askar Askarov has a lot going for him. The 14-1-1 fighter is 4-0 via knockout or technical knockout and 7-0 via submission. Askarov, though, lost his last bout.
Royval rides a 2-fight winning streak into this. The underdog submitted Matt Schnell in his last, a July 16, 2022 bout on the UFC 274 undercard.
Brandon also has a 3 inches height advantage. Royval is fighting well enough to pull off the upset.
UFC Fight Night: Brandon Royval
Cub Swanson +170 vs Jonathan Martinez -200
Swanson is one of the UFC’s most well-respected vets. Cub has a 28-12 record. He’s never shied away from a fight. The underdog in this has a chance to win every fight he enters.
On Saturday night, he faces a tough dude in Jonathan Martinez. The 16-4 southpaw is 7-1 via knockout or technical knockout.
Martinez is 2-0 via submission wins, has won 4-of-5, and is on a 3-bout winning streak. The chalk wins.
UFC Fight Night: Jonathan Martinez
Alexa Grasso -230 vs Viviane Araujo +190
Underdog Viviane Araujo steps into the Octagon with an 11-3 record. Araujo is 3-1 via TKO or KO wins and is undefeated with a 4-0 record via submission victories. Araujo’s last loss occurred in May 2021 in a bout against Katlyn Chookagian.
Alexa Grasso is 14-3. Grasso is on a 3 match winning streak. This bout can go either way. Grasso is in slightly better form, but Alexa’s form doesn’t account for the difference in odds. At +190, Araujo is worth backing.
