Best bets for UFC 261 titles


“Insight the Octagon” lost another best bet on last week’s UFC slate as Drakkar Klose was forced out of his bout with Jeremy Stephens because of an injury he suffered when Stephens shoved him during their weigh-in faceoff. Stephens was a fan/betting favorite going into that fight.

I regarded the shove then as I do now as a tell for the pressure/desperation on Stephens was heavy. He knew full well his sole path to victory was to lure Klose into a toe-to-toe and knock him out early or face getting dominated should Klose show up and fight the patient, intelligent fight.

Word is this bout will be rescheduled quickly.

So we march forward into this week’s UFC 261 production featuring three five-round title bouts. Three title bouts are impressive until a handicap of the one-sided main event mandates that the two other championship fights are added to supplement the mismatch.
