UFC Vegas 43 Vieira vs. Tate: Coby's Best Bets

The UFC caps off November with a banger of a card back at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Former UFC women's bantamweight champion, Miesha Tate, takes on top 10 contender, Ketlen Vieira, in the main event. Co-headling the card is an awesome scrap between Sean Brady and Michael Chiesa.

Some other intriguing bouts include Joanne Wood vs. Talia Santos, Adrian Yanez vs. Davey Grant and Natan Levy vs. Rafa Garcia. Also on the card, Pat Sabatini, Tucker Lutz and Rani Yahya.

  1. Miesha Tate -105

The value on Tate here is hard to pass up. Vieira is a solid fighter, but this just feels like a fight Tate wins if she sticks to the game plan. Miesha has fought tougher fights than this in her career. She can win this fight in dominant fashion with her grappling as long as she's aware of Vieira submission attempts. This is Miesha 2.0's biggest test yet so it will be interesting, but I believe her experience and cardio will be the deciding factor.

2. Pat Sabatini -130

This will be a competitive fight. I like Tucker Lutz's style in most matchups however, Pat Sabatini is a different breed. These Renzo Gracie Philly fighters are all savages. Personally, I think Lutz could have the advantage on the feet, but Sabatini's grappling will be the difference. Lutz also took this fight on 3 weeks notice. Look out for those crafty heel hooks from Sabatini. I believe PA's own gets it done today.

3. Loopy Godinez -160

Loopy steps in the octagon for the third time in a month and a half. Loopy should win this fight convincingly with her grappling. She needs a victory here and this is a matchup that suits her style well. Lookboonmee is a great kickboxer, but her takedown defense isn't the greatest. At first I didn't want to lay the juice on this number, but I will be just to play it safer. Loopy has the ability to submit Lookboonmee however, she tends to be a bit of a decision specialist. Either way both of those are plus money so play them if you won't straight bet this.
