It’s back to Vegas we go for another UFC Fight Night, although this is one that hits much earlier than usual, with the main card set to begin at 1:30 PM EST. There are a total of 5 fights set to go on the main card, with a very good Middleweight bout sitting at the top of the list. It looks to be a very good group of fights that we have coming on Saturday afternoon, and we have the odds for each. We will now take closer look at those UFC odds, while also making predictions for each of the 5 fights on the main card, so let’s get to it.
MMA Betting Preview for UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs. Till
Luigi Vendramini (+130) Vs Paddy Pimblett (-160)
The main card begins with a Lightweight bout that features a pair of fighters on a run of inconsistent form of late. Vendramini has had issues over his last 3 fights, losing 2 of them to fall to 9-2 in his pro career. While Pimblett has a couple of losses in his last 5 outings, he does appear to be in the process of righting the ship, as he comes into this bout on the heels of back-to-back wins. I think Pimblett makes it 3 in a row with the submission win.
Khalil Rountree (+130) Vs Modestas Bukauskas (-160)
We have a pair of Heavyweights stepping into the octagon next, with both fighters in dire need of a win to get things back on track. Rountree has lost 2 straight fights, as well as 3 of his last 5, to see hid record fall to 8-5. After an impressive 11-2 start to his pro career, Bukauskas is now heading in the wrong direction after losing each of his last 2 fights. I don’t think this one goes the distance and I have Bukauskas by KO.
David Zawada (+100) Vs Alex Morono (-130)
There is a similar pattern in this main card in that most of the fighters have been struggling of late, and these two Welterweights are no different. Zawada has really struggled in recent fights and is on a run that has seen him lose 3 of his last 4. Morono has just had difficulty staying consistent, going 3-2 in his last 5 and unable to put together consecutive wins. He won last time out and should get his second straight victory with the decision in this one.
Tom Aspinall (-250) Vs Sergey Spivak (+195)
With the co-main event of the night, we are getting to the fighters on a roll, as both of these Heavyweights currently are. Aspinall is now sitting at 10-2 overall after winning 6 in a row, with all of those wins coming inside 2 rounds. After a wobbly start in the UFC, Spivak has settled down and reeled off 3 straight wins ahead of this one. The winner of this fight will crack the top 10 in the weight class. I am on Aspinall to get there via KO.
Derek Brunson (+150) Vs Darren Till (-180)
The headline event of the night is a Middleweight bout between a pair of fighters in the top 10, although heading in different directions. Brunson is currently ranked #6 after going on a 4-fight won streak that took his overall record to 22-7. Till, meanwhile, is on the slide and has now lost 3 of his last 4 fights to fall to 18-3-1. Till is dangerous, but it can be hard to break out of those slumps. I going to take a shot on the underdog here.
