Fight Night is upon us once again as future UFC Hall-of-Famer, Frankie Edgar, makes his Bantamweight debut against the heavy hitting, Pedro Munhoz.
This card has had a total of 12 canceled or rescheduled bouts, including the co-main event about two hours prior to the fight. That’s absolutely unheard of normally, but we are in 2020 so nothing is normal. The depth of this card isn’t very strong at all considering the caliber of fighters, especially on the main card.
Looking on the bright side we get to see the return of Mariya Agapov, who is -1400 for the second time in two UFC appearances, a feature from the always entertaining Daniel Rodriguez and a ton on UFC debuts.
As for the gambling side, there are a ton of close fights and toss ups which could lead to great value on favorites; one is in my plays below. As prior stated Agapov is by far the biggest favorite on the card as she teeters around the -1450 range.
I’ve been solid in these articles lately, 5-1 on the last two posted. Check my twitter for my full card plays and props. Follow @smoke_sports1 for his locks and pure entertainment.
1. Mizuki Inoue -130
Get this while you can she might shoot up a bit. Inoue is just far more experienced and has been fighting way tougher competition. This is just one of those fights were the 19 fight veteran will outsmart the lesser experienced Amanda Lemos. Inoue has a kickboxing and karate background however she has nine submission wins. Lemos is quite the boxer herself with a decent grappling game, however she’s only been to decision once and drew. I don’t see this fight ending before the final bell, so if you have an over line less than -200 that’s solid or a “goes the distance” prop take it.
2. Solecki -120
Another close fight. This one involves less of a gap in experience and skill in my opinion. Classic grappler against striker battle and it will come down to who has a better gas tank. If Solecki can get this fight to the ground it will be a rough night for Austin Hubbard. Hubbard is definitely not known for his grappling, especially defensively, however he is the better striker. This will be a fun fight wherever it goes.
Honorable Mention: Wright -130
