If you don’t mind getting up early on Saturday morning, then you can have another MMA event to look forward to in what looks like a busy weekend of action. The ONE Championship returns to Singapore with what is a smaller card than we are used to. Including the prelims, there are just 5 fights on tap, one of which is a Muay Thai bout. Let’s also keep in mind, though, that the headline event in this one is a title fight, so there is very good reason to tune in and consider wagering on the card. Let’s break down all 5 fights and make some predictions as we go so you can place your bets against their One Championship odds.
ONE Championship: Dangal | MMA Betting Analysis
Gary Mangat Vs Roshan Mainam
This is the first of two prelim fights on the card, and it features a pair of highly ranked fighters from the Asia South region. Mangat is the top ranked fighter in the region and comes in with a 15-3 record, although he is coming off a loss last time out. Mainam is 6-2 in his pro career and is on a solid 3-fight win streak ahead of this one. I can see this one going the distance, but I am giving the slight edge to Mangat in what should be a good fight.
Ayaka Miura Vs Rayane Bastos
The final prelim of this event is a Bantamweight bout between a pair of women who have different experience levels as a pro. Miura is 10-3 as a pro and saw a good run of form come to an end in her last bout, which saw her put down in the 3rd round. Bastos is 4-0-1 and has looked good in the opening few fights of her pro career. I think she is in a little over her head here, so I am taking Miura to win by submission.
Bi Nguyen Vs Ritu Phogat
It’s the women up again in what is the opening fight of the main card. It has been a rough start to life in the ONE Championship for Nguyen, as she is just 2-4 in her 6 fights under that banner, although one of her wins came in a Muay Thai bout. Phogat, on the other hand, is a perfect 4-0 and has won 3 of those 4 fights inside 2 rounds. I like Phogat to remain unbeaten, although she may not get the job done as quickly this time around.
Tawanchai PK Saenchai Vs Sean Clancy
As we mentioned at the top of this piece, there is a Muay Thai bout on this card, which is what we are looking at here. Saenchai is just 22 years of age, which makes him 12 years younger than his opponent, and this is his first pro fight. Clancy has had just 2 pro fights and has lost both of them, although one was a kickboxing bout. Let’s take Saenchai to get the win in his pro debut.
Brandon Vera Vs Arjan Bhullar
The evening comes to a close with a Heavyweight title bout that will see Brandon Vera look to defend his belt. This will be the third defense of the title for Vera, which comes in with a 16-8 career mark. Vera is coming on off a loss in a Catchweight bout his last time out. Bhullar has just 1 loss in his career, but he bounced back from that one quite nicely, winning 3 in a row to set up a title shot. I think Bhullar might come out of this one as the new champion.
