For MMA fans, the weekend begins on Friday night, as LFA 103 gets rolling at 9 PM EST, with all the action available to stream on UFC Fight Pass. It’s going to be an action-packed night in Shawnee, Oklahoma, as we have no less than 6 fights set to go on the main card. That’s a lot of action to break down, but we are going to do out best to get into it right here. Let’s take a closer look at the MMA odds and the predictions we have for all 6 fights on the main card.
MMA Betting Preview for LFA 102: Souza Vs Johns
Kendrick Latchman Vs Luciano Ramos
The main card begins with a Bantamweight bout between a pair of fighters who are both desperate for a win that might get them back on track. Latchman has lost each of his last 2 fights, as well as 3 of his last 4, failing to get beyond the second round last time out. Ramos is coming into this bout on the heels of a win, but he has lost 3 of his last 5 and is just 5-5 overall in his career. I have this one going the distance and Latchman getting the win.
Josh Quinlan (-260) Vs Dallas Jennings (+200)
It’s a welterweight bout that we have next, with both of these fighters making very good starts to their pro careers. Quinlan has been perfect up to this point, winning all 4 of his fights in the pro ranks, with all 4 wins coming inside the distance. Jennings started his career going 1-1, but he has buckled down and won each of his last 2 fights, with the latest being a KO in the opening round. Quinlan just looks a little better for me, so I am taking him to win early.
Fernie Garcia (-305) Vs Isaiah Batin-Gonzalez (+245)
It’s a good looking Bantamweight bout that is next on the main card, and one that could potentially go the distance. Garcia comes into this fight with a very respectable 8-1 career mark and a 3-fight win streak that includes a pair of split decision wins. Batin-Gonzalez started his pro career by winning 4 in a row, but he is coming off a tough opening round loss last time out. I think it will be Garcia who outlasts his opponent and gets the win.
Abdul Al-Selwady (-345) Vs Jake Sebastian (+270)
This looks to be a very evenly matched Lightweight bout, but you do have to say that one of these fighters might need it more than the other. After opening up with a 10-1 start to his career, Al-Selwady has now lost 2 fights in a row. He is going to be up against it here, as Sebastian has moved to 6-2 on the heels of winning 4 of his last 5 fights, including each of his last 2. I’m looking for Al-Selwady to get back on track with a KO win.
Vanessa Demopolous (-235) Vs Cynthia Arceo (+195)
The ladies are up next for a strawweight bout that features a pair of fighters looking to snap out of a poor run of recent form. Demopolous has dropped to 5-3 after losing each of her last 3 fights, although she did go the distance in both. Arceo comes into this one on the heels of a loss, as well as a run that has seen her go a disappointing 1-2-1 in her last 4. I have this one going the distance and Demopolous getting the decision.
Spike Carlyle (-120) Vs Batsumberel Dagvadorj (-110)
We are seeing a bit of a common theme in this main card, with fighters looking for bounce back wins. It is more of the same in this Lightweight bout. Carlyle has seen his pro record drop to 9-3 after losing each of his last 2 fights, both of which came via unanimous decision. Dagvadorj saw his perfect 7-0 record come to an end last time out after getting choked out in the opening round. I like Carlyle to get back on track by ending this one in the first couple of rounds.
