UFC 251: Usman vs. Burns
- When: Saturday, July 11
UFC 251 Main Card Top Betting Favorites
Kamara Usman -300 over Jorge Masvidal
Usman was a huge favorite over Gilbert Burns, who had to withdraw due to testing positive for the coronavirus. Masvidal should put up a good fight. But Usman has lost just once during his career and that was in 2013.
Not only that, but Jorge must ready himself in just a week.
- UFC 251 Pick: Kamara Usman -300
Petr Yan -240 over Jose AldoYan has just a single loss from 15 UFC fights. Legendary MMA artist Jose Aldo heads into this bout on a two fight losing streak.
- UFC 251 Pick: Petr Yan -240
Amanda Ribas -950 over Paige VanZant +625
The 9-1 Ribas fought in March. VanZant won her last battle in January. But before that, she had gone 1-3 in the previous 4. Ribas’ last loss was to Polyana Viana back in 2015.
- UFC 251 Pick: Amanda Ribas -950
UFC Fight Night: Kattar vs. Ige
- When: Wednesday, July 15
Kattar vs. Ige Top Betting Favorites
Abdul Razak Al Hassan -275 over Mounir Lazzez
9-1 Mounir Lazzez has won 8 of his bouts via knockout or technical knockout. Lazzez will hang with Al Hassan for a round. But that’s probably it.
Abdul Razak last lost in 2017. He knocked out well-regarded Niko Price in his last bout. Al Hassan should roll to an easy win.
- UFC Fight Night Pick: Abdul Razak Al Hassan -275
Dusko Tudorovic -185 over John Phillips +155
Tudorovic is undefeated at 9-0. The reason Phillips should fear him is because Dusko appears capable of fighting any style. He should rock Phillips on July 15
- UFC Fight Night Pick: Dusko Tudorovic -185
Diana Belbita -160 over Liana Jojua
Last September, Liana Jojua had her first fight since 2018. Sarah Moras beat her via KO/TKO. Liana did not look good. Molly McCann beat Diana Belbita via unanimous decision. McCann is a great fighter. We should expect Diana to step it up in this.
- UFC Fight Night Pick: Diana Belbita -160
UFC Fight Night: Figueiredo vs. Benavidez 2
- When: Saturday, July 18
Figueiredo vs. Benavidez 2 Top Betting Favorites
Deiveson Figueiredo -225 vs. Joseph Benavidez
Figueiredo beat Benavidez in the first fight primarily due to the head clash. The pair bumped heads. That opened a cut on Joseph’s face. Deiveson took advantage. But, let’s not kid ourselves. Benavidez punches over his feet. That’s why they clashed heads. If he punches over his feet again, Figueiredo will time a perfect counter and knock him out.
- UFC Fight Night Pick: Deiveson Figueiredo -225
Marc Diakiese -160 over Rafael Fiziev +130
Fiziev is a good fighter. Marc has 2-inches over Rafael, though. Also, Diakiese is on a 2-fight winning streak. He should handle Fiziev in the stand-up. If Rafael, a Muay Thai fighter, goes to the ground, listen for the Fat Lady’s singing.
- UFC Fight Night Pick: Marc Diakiese -160
Joe Duffy -330 over Joel Alvarez +255
Alvarez has some major physical advantages. He’s much taller than Duffy and has a longer reach. But Joel is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighter, like Joe Duffy. Duffy has 10 submission wins on his record. Alvarez has yet to fight anyone as experienced as Duffy. Joe takes this.
- UFC Fight Night Pick: Joe Duffy -330
