Las Vegas is a city that has grown accustomed to having major fighting events located there. This coming Saturday night, it will once again play host to an event that promises to be a beauty. UFC 260 is next up on the calendar and it features a headline title fight that is also a rematch, so it’s almost like a glorious two for one deal. While the main event is the one that we are all looking forward to, UFC 260 has a 5-fight main card that looks fantastic. Let’s now take a moment to peek inside those 5 bouts and make some predictions so you can make your bets against their UFC odds.
UFC 260: Miocic Vs Ngannou 2 Betting Preview
Jamie Mullarkey (+100) Vs Khama Worthy (-130)
If a fighter wants to stay in the UFC, they need to win on a regular basis, so this Lightweight bout is particularly big for Mullarkey. He has now had a pair of fights under the UFC banner and has lost both of them by unanimous decision. He is going to have a tough time getting that first win against Khama Worthy, who has a 2-1 record with the UFC, although he did lose last time out. I think Worthy gets the KO win in this one.
Gillian Robertson (+135) Vs Miranda Maverick (-165)
It’s the ladies who will enter the octagon next for a Flyweight bout that might well feature some fireworks. Robertson is coming into this one on the heels of a loss, although she has won 3 of her last 5 fights to get to 9-5. Maverick is off to an impressive 8-2 start to her career and will arrive in Vegas on a 4-fight win streak, with early finishes showing up regularly in her past. I’m on Maverick here, but I think she might need to go the distance.
Thomas Almeida (+250) Vs Sean O’Malley (-310)
For a professional fighter, things can go off the rails rather quickly, which is what is happening to one of the fighters in this Bantamweight bout. After starting his career at 21-0, Thomas Almeida has seen things go wrong in the worst way, losing 3 in a row and 4 of his last 5 fights. O’Malley will be looking to avoid a similar slide after taking the first professional loss of his career last time out. I think O’Malley gets back to winning against a fighter in a crisis of confidence.
Tyron Woodley (+180) Vs Vicente Luque (-230)
The Welterweights are up for a fight that is listed as the co-main event, and once again we have a fighter looking to break out of a slump. Tyron Woodley is seeing things head in the wrong direction after losing 3 fights in a row, falling to 19-6-1 in the process. Luque, on the other hand, is on a very nice run of form, winning 4 of his last 5 fights and flashing some serious power over the last 2. I think Luque extends Woodley’s losing skid.
Stipe Miocic (+105) Vs Francis N’Gannou (-135)
The final fight of the night is a Heavyweight title bout between a pair of fighters who met in the past. Despite the fact that Miocic is the champ and won the last time these two met, he is in as the slight underdog on Saturday night. N’Gannou shared this title shot by shaking off the loss to the champ and reeling off 4-straight wins. This is a tough one to call, as I think N’Gannou needs the KO to win. If it goes the distance, I think Miocic gets it.
