UFC Fight Night 178 Woodley vs Covington: Coby's Plays

Another fight night is upon us and it’s going to be an absolute barnburner. In tonight’s main event long-time foes settle things as former title challenge Colby Covington takes on former Welterweight champ Tyron Woodley.

This card is nothing short of stacked; I would honestly not be mad if this was a pay-per-view.

Some fights to keep an eye on are Niko Price vs Cowboy Cerrone, Johnny Walker vs Ryan Spann and Andre Ewell vs Irwin Riveria. These will all be absolute fireworks. Also, tonight features the returns of Khazmat Chimaev, Kevin Holland and Mackenzie Dern.

As far as gambling goes, there are a ton of close fights on this card. Lots of dog value early and late on a card with copious amounts of finishers.

1. Johnny Walker -125

As Walker is coming off two huge losses to grapplers, you’d think the UFC would put him up against a guy who’s predominantly a striker. Nope, Ryan Spann is really well rounded and has some pop in his hands as well. Johnny Walker is the far more talented striker, in my opinion, and he needs a win tonight. Another play I really like in this fight is the under. It is at 1.5 rounds, but both these guys fight to finish so this should be a banger. However, if Johnny fights to his strengths it’s his fight to lose.

2. Donald Cerrone +120

This fight is going to be a staple in Cowboy’s career. A loss here would put a huge dent in the future of Cerrone. However, this really is Cowboy’s fight to lose and he knows that. He has been in the cage with guys that have that gritty brawler style like Niko Price. For example, most recently Yancy Medeiros and Al Iaquinta; he beat both. As this is another fight that is going to be insane, it is also going to be a close one. I don’t hate the longshot play of Cowboy by Decision +400.

Honorable Mention: Randy Costa +100

Fun Parlay: Bektic/Holland/Dern +160
