TNT has done a very nice job in partnering with ONE to deliver top quality MMA bouts every week. They are back at it on Wednesday night with their fourth set of bouts broadcast from Singapore. There are just 3 fights on the main card, one of which is a title bout, but we are also going to take a look at a couple of the prelim fights, as those will also be sown during the broadcast. Let’s jump right in and get to the previews and predictions for ONE On TNT IV: N Sang Vs Bigdash so you can bet against their MMA odds.
ONE On TNT IV: N Sang Vs Bigdash | MMA Betting Analysis
Colbey Northcutt Vs Courtney Martin
The first of the prelims is a women’s Bantamweight bout between a pair of fighters in the early part of their careers. Northcutt was hit hard in her first fight as a pro, going down in the second round, but she rebounded nicely to win last time out. This will be the first pro fight for Martin, who went 8-1 as an amateur before taking the next step. These types of fights are always tough to predict, but I am going with Northcutt by decision.
Shinya Aoki Vs Eduard Folayang
Next up are a couple of Welterweight fighters who bring a ton of experience into the octagon. Aoki has had a fantastic career and has put together a 46-9 professional mark, winning each of his last 3 fights, as well as 4 of his last 5. Folayang has a respectable 22-10 career record, but he has not been on the ball of late, losing 4 of his last 5 fights. I have a feeling this one might be over quickly, with Aoki getting the win by submission.
Oumar Kane Vs Kirill Grishenko
We head into the first of the 3-fight main card with the big boys stepping into the octagon for a Heavyweight bout. Something has to give in this one, as both men are currently unbeaten, starting with Kane, who is 3-0, with all of his wins coming inside 2 rounds. It is the same story for Grishenko, who has been dominant on his way to a perfect 3-0 record. I don’t see any way this one goes the distance, and I am taking Kane by KO.
Eddie Alvarez Vs Rae Yoon Ok
The co-main event of the night is a Lightweight bout that features a very familiar face. Most fight fans will remember Alvarez from his time in the UFC, but he has not made the best start to life in ONE, going 1-1 and seeing his last fight end in a No Contest. Ok is 14-3 and coming in on a good run of form, winning 3 in a row and 5 of his last 6. I think experience plays a major role here, with Alvarez getting the KO win.
Aung La N Sang Vs Reinier de Ridder
The main event is a Light Heavyweight title bout that is a rematch with a difference. In their last meeting, de Ridder had an opening round win over Sang to take the Middleweight crown, but this time he will be moving up to try and take the Light Heavyweight belt from Sang, putting his unbeaten record on the line. The loss for Sang saw his 7-fight unbeaten streak come to an end, and I think it gets worse, as I like de Ridder to get the win again in this one.
