Chris Barnett vs. Martin Buday should have resulted in a DQ, which would have put us to 3-0 last week. Oh well, onto Lemos vs. Andrade.
I’ll be in Nashville on Friday, so next week’s betting guide for Font vs. Vera could be very delayed. Have missed a week yet, but could be the first one. I will tweet out my bets, but not sure if the guide will be up by Wednesday.
You already know Rob Font is locked in as one of the bets.
Maycee Barber (-190) vs. Montana De La Rosa (+160)
Had to include Maycee Barber vs Montana De La Rosa. on paper, this is a great match-up for Barber. Especially seeing he holds the momentum after coming off of an interesting split decision victory.
Barber is the more complete fighter here. Don’t think this is going to be a flashy fight by any means but Barber should get this done via decision.
Bets: Maycee Barber (-190)
Maycee Barber wins by decision (+110)
Mudaerji Su (+155) vs. Manel Kape (-180)
Very high on Manel Kape, truly believe he will be fighting for the title later this year. As soon as Kape got to the UFC he was thrown to the wolves. His first fight was against Alexandre Pantoja, and he ended up going the distance.
Now Kape is climbing the ranks with back-to-back knockout victories. Give me Manel Kape and take him by KO/TKO while you are at it. Unfortunately do not have the odds on KO/TKO yet but take it whatever it is.
Bets: Manel Kape (-180)
Manel Kape by KO/TKO (TBD)
Dean Barry (-1125) vs. Mike Jackson (+700)
This is hilarious, had to include it. Dean Barry is 4-1 as a professional fighter making his UFC debut. On the other side is the one and only, Mike Jackson. If you don’t know Mike Jackson holds an overall MMA record of 1-1. As a professional he is 0-1, he lost to Mickey Gall back in 2016. Yes, that’s right, his only professional fight took place in the UFC.
In 2018 Mike Jackson went 3 rounds with CM Punk. Yes, 3 rounds with CM Punk. That fight resulted in a no contest because Jackson tested positive for marijuana. Regardless, Mike Jackson is back!
Man, going to have some fun prop betting this one. I’d take Dean Barry by finish too but those lines are out just yet.
Bets: Dean Barry (-1125)
Dean Barry by KO/TKO (TDB)
Barry wins inside distance (-200)
Under 1½ rounds (-125)
