“UFC Fight Night” on ESPN drops Saturday from the Apex Center in Las Vegas with 11 scheduled fights. From 115-pound female mixed martial artists to 265-pound heavyweight behemoths, this card offers some fascinating matchups featuring athletes from around the globe.
One trend to note: Favorites have realized a 20-1-2 tally over the last two UFC cards. I’ve managed to profit in these two weeks by remaining selective. Last week we invested (and lost) only .5u, which shows that sometimes the best wagers are the ones not made.
Running a profitable sports gaming business is no different from running any profitable endeavor in that reducing or eliminating loss is as important as maximizing profit. Last week we paused at the correct time. This week I believe certain fights present opportunity.
Thiago Santos -240 vs. Glover Teixeira + 210, light-heavyweight (205 pounds), main event
These two incredibly likable Brazilians outside the cage are destroyers inside it. What’s most interesting about this bout is that stylistically, each man seems made for the other.
