Let’s look at a fight at Featherweight between Luis Saldana (15-7) vs. Bruno Souza(10-2). Alright, let’s get one thing straight when your betting on a fighter; the value is in why your fighter is better and not the other fighter’s faults. Amen!
What’s in favor of Saldana is he needs to avenge his last loss, meaning he’s hungry for a win. Saldana fighting out of the MMA Lab and Souza fighting out of Machida Academy speaks volumes about these two fighters. I give the edge to Souza in the Gym regard.
Let’s finish with fighting styles. Souza is going to let the fight come to him. Saldana is going to bring it to him. Saldana can go the distance and what he lacks in power he makes up in volume.
Preston’s First Best Bet: Luis Saldana ML (+110)
We finish out the best bets with a Bantamweight fight. Chris Gutierrez (17-3-2) vs. Batgerel Danaa (10-2).
This fight comes down to power. Batgerel is the heavier handed fighter in this one. I like his pressure coming forward and Chris is known to move around a lot and drag his fights out but more importantly leave himself open to big shots. Batgerel has a sizeable reach advantage and will be looking to get on track in his early UFC career. Great price for a great fight.
Preston’s Final Best Bet: Batgerel Danaa ML (-135)
