UFC Fight Night 110, to be held this upcoming weekend. With back-to-back weekends filled with UFC events, this month is turning out to be better than expected for sports betting fans.
This weekend’s event will mark the second production to have been hosted in Auckland, with the first being UFC Fight Night 43 back in 2014. The night will be headlined by a heavyweight bout between Derrick Lewis and 2001 K-1 World Grand Prix winner and former interim title contender Mark Hunt.
There’s not too much action for UFC betting fans to tune in for the early preliminaries. This will be Aldrich’s second fight in the UFC, with her first bout resulting in a loss. The MMA sports odds list Aldrich as a heavy favorite over UFC newcomer Chan-Mi Jeon.
Thibault Gouti has his back against the wall as he has lost the last three fights consecutively. A loss against Kim – who enters on a 3-fight win streak, will likely force the UFC to cut Gouti.
This is what is averaging as of now:
Preliminaries & Sports Betting Odds
Damien Brown 2 ½ (+110) -120 vs. Vinc Pichel 2 ½ (-130) EV
Luke Jumeau 2 ½ (+150) +140 vs. Dominique Steele 2 ½ (-170) -160
John Moraga 2 ½ (+110) -160 vs. Ashkan Mokhtarian 2 ½ (-130) +140
Kiichi Kunimoto 1 ½ (-225) +275 vs. Zak Ottow 1 ½ (+185) -335
There’s a lot more action on the preliminaries for UFC betting fans to tune in for. The biggest fight that pops out is the match between Kiichi Kunimoto and Zak Ottow, due to the lucrative odds posted. Ottow is pegged as a heavy underdog over the Japanese Kunimoto. Both fighters are coming off a loss.
Apart from the fact that he’s headlining the night, Mark Hunt is also making UFC headlines for his current lawsuit against the UFC. It’s not every day that the promotion has to promote a fighter who is currently involved in litigation against them, and it’s all anyone can talk about. Hunt can certainly pull some fans to his side by delivering another walk-off knockout this weekend.
This as far as what’s coming, now what has happened recently. What Went Wrong at UFC 212?
Well, for one, Max Holloway did a far better job of shutting down Aldo’s kicking game than it was expected. Aldo’s increased unwillingness to use his low kicks has been rather troubling; though he got countered on the first one, the fact that he made no attempt to try another despite his counter-punching becoming increasingly ineffective is somewhat baffling. The man built his throne out of a huge arsenal and adaptability, after all.
As far as the other foul-up, it’s been said that Deiveson Figueiredo fights down to the level of his opponents. The fighter that thrashed Marco Antonio Beltran on Saturday is not the same one who went life-and-death with Denis Araujo last September.
