Great fight card lined up for tonight! Prelims start at 4 PM CT, on ESPN.
Tanner Boser (-285) vs. Raphael Pessosa (+225). This is the 4th fight on the card. If you faded Boser in his last fight against Lins. Now is your chance for redemption. Boser was overly dominant in his last performance shutting his opponents lights out in the first round. Lin is more talented then Pessosa. I don’t see how this fight goes the distance unless Pessosa is able to find a submission. My wager: Boser finishes Pessosa by KO, TKO, or DQ (+240). I added a wager of fight not to go the distance (+110). Consider adding that play to boost your haul.
Alex Oliveira (-160) vs. Peter Sobotta (+130). I like Sobotta as a fighter. The cold hard facts are Sobotta hasn’t fought since 2018. I expect him to have some octagon rust. Oliveira’s last fight was in March against a tough Max Griffin in which Oliveira won. Once Sobotta gets going it will likely be too little too late. Oliveira is a fast starter and will look to get after it from the opening bell. My wager: Oliveira ML (-170).
Carla Esparza (+150) vs. Mariana Rodriquez (-185). A lot of hype surrounding Esparza and I am selling. Rodriquez has a severe advantage in the striking department. Esparza’s bread and butter is wrestling. Taking her opponents down and pummeling them. Rodriquez has had time to game plan for those situations and I believe she keeps it standing enough to secure a decision victory. My wager: Rodriquez wins by Decision or Technical Decision (-105).
Side notes: I like Gustafsson to win his bout against Werdum. Also like Whittaker to demolish Till. Waiting for the line to move closer to Till before I make my wager on Whittaker ML.
