UFC on ESPN+ 13 takes place this weekend, with a main event of Aspen Ladd vs Germaine De Randamie.
Urijah Faber is on the card and….not much else. I mean there’s fighters you’ll recognize sure but it really seems like a right “meh” sort of card to be honest.
I’ll watch it but I am not really too hyped for it to be honest.
Still one thing I love about these cards is diving into the betting action. It always get me motivated as I’m generally not leaning one way or the other until I start reacquainting myself with certain fighters. Then I end up getting pretty hyped for it as I figure out how the fights will go in my head, then see if that’s actually what happens.
So let’s get on with the UFC Fight Night 155 Betting Tips.
UFC Fight Night 155 Bets:
The main event has Aspen Ladd as a -130 favourite and I’m good to take her here. The odds for this one are all over the place and I wouldn’t go higher than -140 on this. It’s an interesting clash of styles as you’ve got the striker versus the wrestler essentially. Ladd however is very tough as we saw against Sijara Eubanks. It also just takes one takedown honestly and that could be it with the way Ladd is on the ground. I think it starts out slow and in Germaines favour but Ladd takes it. Might be one to pay attention to the live betting.
There’s a similar fight with Josh Emmett and Mirsad Bektic and I am taking Bektic to win. This could be a great card. I love Josh Emmett he has absolutely ridiculous power. Bektic also has a bit of a weak chin it seems so it could be risky. However Bektic is incredible at the takedowns with more than 3.5 TDs per 15 minutes. That’s a hell of a stat and as long as Bektic is careful and doesn’t get in a scrap, he’s got this one.
For an underdog pick I like Cezar Ferreira to beat Marvin Vettori. Mutante is a fighter who has really been evolving and he has changed his game around in the UFC big time with some big wins over the likes of Anthony Smith. Vettori is a solid enough fighter but he is aggressive and that is going to be a mistake against Ferreira. Mutante has really upped his counter game and I see him taking this one fairly easily to be honest. Surprised he is the dog here.
I’m also taking Livia Renata Souza. That one is more like a pickem but I love what Souza has been doing. She bounced back strong from losing the Invicta Strawweight title and looks vicious with some incredible submissions.
Brianna Van Buren is replacing Cynthia Calvillo and she has short notice for this one. Van Buren is a solid enough fighter actually but this is just going to be a tough fight for her. SHe’s not able to keep up with Souzas wrestling and the height disadvantage will be a factor here. Just an ugly matchup for Van Buren and I like Souza to take this one.
