It’s Saturday which means a UFC event.
UFC Fight Night 152, or UFC on ESPN+10, takes place on May 18th, 2019 from Rochester, New York. This will be the first time that UFC has taken place in Rochester.
The main event is Rafael Dos Anjos versus Kevin Lee.
Other notable bouts on the main card include Megan Anderson vs Felicia Spencer and Charles Oliveira vs Nik Lentz.
On the prelims, Patrick Cummins vs Ed Hermans and Aspen Ladd vs Sijara Eubanks is on there as well as quite a few others.
Hopefully it’ll be a decent show. With no NHL action tonight I’ll be focused on just this and the playoffs.
BTW how bad was Sage Norcutts KO yesterday? Ugh. Absolutely brutal.
Let’s get to the predictions:
UFC Fight Night 152 Bets:
Kevin Lee to win (+100). I hope this isn’t the case – I really do. If Lee wins, it will no doubt be a dull fight where he refuses to stand and bang and instead grapples his way to victory. RDA can’t defend takedowns and if you’re Kevin Lee you know how to take this one. This is Kevins fight to lose and he is a great price here honestly as long as he sticks to the game plan.
Trevin Giles to win (-150). This is one where you may want to throw a heavy favourite on and parlay it. Danny Roberts or Patrick Cummins maybe. Cummings is an impressive fighter and is durable however he dominated at Welterweight due to his size. He doesn’t have that at middleweight. Giles hasn’t fought in awhile which is why he’s only a slight favourite. I just think the weight class will be an issue for Cummings.
Felicia Spencer to win (+180). Always like looking for at least one underdog to win, and this is the one. She is great at wrestling and if this one goes to the ground it’s all freaking over. Megan Anderson will have to hope she can get a lucky counter or something when Felicia goes to take her down. Only way I can see it going down unless Spencer attempts to stand and bang or something. Feenom is a freaking beast and I can see her making Megan tap out.
Grant Dawson to win (-140). I enjoyd Dawsons performance against Erosa and you have to figure he was a bit rusty there. Dawson is solid at finishing and also has solid wrestling. I see this being one where Dawson just takes him down early and pounds his way to a victory or takes it via submission early on. Another one where Trizano is better on the feet but if Dawson sticks to the game plan, it should be easy enough for him honestly. I mean we saw in Trizanos fights against Pena and Giannetti how to beat him – grapple him and control him on the ground. He looked soft when that happened and although he overcame them, I think Dawson is smart enough to take this one.
