The fight card on Saturday has the makings of a very exciting night based on the matches and styles of the fighters going at it even though it lacks name value. I have a few more plays that I am personally playing, but they are more on the risky side and I wasn’t confident in them enough to suggest them as plays. However, the plays listed below should be solid and get us all to profit on Saturday night. If you have any questions or want to run anything by me, send me a message on the discord chat or follow me on Twitter @tyslice23
Mayra Bueno Silva -145
Silva pushes a very aggressive pace that will make it hard for De La Rosa to keep pace with. De La Rosa will be looking to take this fight to the ground if Silva overcommits but Silva’s 71% takedown defense suggests that it will not be an easy task. If this fight does manage to make its way to the ground Silva is dangerous off of his back and poses a submission threat.
Alex Caceres -195
I hate to suggest Caceres as a bet because he is one of my least favorite fighters in the sport but he is facing a fighter in Croom that thrives off aggression but lacks high-level skill. Caceres should be able to use his technique to stall some of Croom’s aggression and out point him to a decision. Careers by decision at +100 isn’t a terrible bet if you want more juice in this fight.
Alexander Hernandez -190
The only way I see Moises posing a problem in this fight is on the ground but he struggles to land takedowns, only completing 35% of all attempts in his UFC career. Hernandez should be able to fend them off well and keep this fight standing. Hernandez will have an edge in speed and power, that combined with Moises being very hittable should carry Hernandez to getting his hand raised at the end of the fight.
Ronnie Lawrence -157
Cachero has shown to struggle versus fighters that can push a fast pace and Lawrence fits into that style perfectly. I look for Lawrence to get Cachero on his back foot, close the distance and get this fight to the ground to take a one-sided decision. Lawrence by decision is +125 and I will have some action on that as well as Lawrence straight up.
Live Bet special- William Knight
Menifield has shown in previous fights that he is very talented for one round. While I think Menifield could get the job done early this is one fight that you should keep an eye on if your betting site offers live betting. After the first round, there should be a ton of value in the Knight line making him very much in play. Do not take him for the fight though because he could get KO’d in the first, live after the 1st round is the play.
Gane/Rozenstruik does not go to decision -250
