Check out our UFC betting analysis of all the great UFC main card action at the Pepsi Center on Saturday night!
Both fighters are undefeated, but Pena has the slightly better resume because he’s got more experience. Trizano lost a split decision to Joe Giannetti on the Ultimate Fighter. He out struck Giannetti 49-29, but Giannetti provided the impressive takedown.
That was this past January. Trizano may have picked up a few moves since then. He’s worth a look at the odds.

Hannah Cifers +325 vs Maycee Barber -420
8-2 Hannah Cifers is the dog even though Maycee Barber only has a 4-0 record. She calls herself “The Future”, though, which is a testament to the belief she has in her skills. Barber’s incredibly well rounded having won a fight by KO, via submission, and via decision. She should handle Cifers no problem on Saturday night.

Thiago Moises +125 vs Beneil Dariush -145
Dariush’s decent 14-4-1 record should put him into a championship battle discussion were he to win his fight against Thiago Moises. But, Moises is 10-2. This fight could go to the ground where both have strong games. The relatively unknown Moises has a decent shot to pull off the upset just because his ground game’s based in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu style while Dariush primarily uses his speed.

Raquel Pennington +145 vs Germaine de Randamie -180
Pennington’s ranked 7th while de Randamie’s ranked 9th, but Pennington only has a 9-7 record. Randamie last fought in 2017 when Holly Holm beat her via unanimous decision in a championship bout even though Randamie out struck Holm 80-77.
Champion Amanda Nunes knocked out Pennington in her last, but before the loss, Raquel had beaten Miesha Tate, Elizabeth Phillips, Bethe Correia, and Jessica Andrade. She can win this fight as the slight dog.

Donald Cerrone +170 vs Mike Perry -200
Ranked Donald Cerrone has a ton of experience. Perry’s the younger fighter with the better stand-up. 92% of Perry’s victories have come via KO. Although Cerrone’s got 3-inches in height on Perry, he should find a way to get to the dog. Mike Perry wins via Round 1 knockout.
UFC Fight Night Denver: Mike Perry
Yair Rodriguez -105 vs Chan Sung Jung -115
The Korean Zombie last fought at UFC in 2017 when he knocked out Dennis Bermudez. He had taken 4 years off before that fight after Jose Aldo beat him in a championship bout in 2013. Bettors so far favor Sung Jung even though Yair Rodriguez is 5 years younger and up until a doctor’s stoppage at UFC 211 against Frankie Edgar, he had won 5 in a row.
Rodriguez gets the nod due to the slightly better odds, his youth, and difficulty determining if the Korean Zombie’s still got his excellent skill set.
