As fight night is upon us once, we are given another chance to beat the book.
Although my best bets were rough last week, you win some and you lose some, but we are beyond back tonight.
The strength of this fight card is considerably inferior to majority of the other UFC cards put on, but there for sure is some hidden gems here.
Some fights you should look out for in case of fireworks tonight are Andre Fili vs Charles Jourdain, Marvin Vettori vs Karl Roberson and Jordan Espinosa vs Mark De La Rosa.
By no means will this card be as close to as electric as UFC 250 last weekend, however there’s been worse events. Also, five fighters missing weight and/or pulling out of the fight literally last minute didn’t help the cards cause either.
However, when there is money to be made that where you will find us.

Marvin Vettori -230
The fact that Vettori isn’t -500 is a gift. Yes, the value here might not be the best, but Vettori is for sure my lock of the night. Vettori was supposed to fight Karl Roberson twice this year, including tonight. Roberson missed weight for the bout in April and was forced to pull out. Yesterday, Roberson failed to make weight again, this time by four and a half pounds. This fight has a ton of animosity; these two guys clearly don’t like each other. Vettori is the better overall fighter and if both these guys survive to slugfest early, I think Vettori milks Roberson’s gas tank and drags out the decision win. Vettori is 4-2-1 in his four year-long UFC tenure, with both of his losses coming by decision; one being a split decision loss to current middleweight champ Israel Adesanya. Karl Roberson is 4-2 in the UFC howeve
