Main Card

Derrick Lewis vs Ilir Latifi

Latifi is one of my favorite underdogs on this card. I think this match is going to be a lot closer than most people are predicting. I am taking Latifi +220 in this fight.

Best Bet: Ilir Latifi +220
Mirsad Bektic vs Dan Ige

Dan Ige has been fighting really well lately winning his last 4 fights. Both of these guys are very powerful fighters and I think this fight is going to be a good one. I am taking Dan Ige +110 in this fight.

Best Bet: Dan Ige +110
Juan Adams vs Justin Tafa

This Heavyweight match appears to be one of the best of the night. I like both of these fighters, but I don’t think we will see an early knockout. Unless one of these fighters just happens to land a big hit I think this fight will last a while. I am taking Over 1.5 Rounds in this fight.

Best Bet: Over 1.5 Rounds -105

Prediction

Valentina Shevchenko has been fighting very well winning 7 of her last 9 fights. Her only losses came against the powerful Amanda Nunes. While Katlyn Chookagian has also been fighting well, she just doesn’t have the same pure fighting ability. My play for this fight is Shevchenko to win by decision.

Best Bet: Shevchenko wins by decision -140

Prediction

Jon Jones has proven to be one of the best fighters in the UFC. I really like him to win this fight, but the odds are just way too high. These fighters come into this match having only 1 combined loss. I think that the power behind Jones’ punches and his ability to get the submission is going to be the difference in this fight. My pick is Jones to win inside the distance.

Best Bet: Jones wins inside distance -125
