This week’s UFC 275 takes place early Sunday morning in Singapore, but fortunately for us in the Western Hemisphere, the first bout starts at 3:30 p.m. PT Saturday.

An international array of diverse fighting styles, philosophies and physical body types will all descend on Singapore for one purpose: to enhance standing within their respective divisions by earning impressive victories.

Last week, I recommended Jeff Molina at -150, and he closed a -185 favorite for his bout against Zhalgas Zhumagulov. In a tight decision, Molina was victorious. His win contributes to 2022 profitability, which stands at 12-6 (+ 5.29 units).

This week I’ll break down potentially advantageous wagering opportunities at UFC 275 outside the main and co-main events.

Weili Zhang (-160) vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk (+ 140)

Women’s strawweight (115 pounds) 

This is a rematch of a 25-minute war waged in March of 2020. After that bout, Joanna’s face was worse for wear from Zhang’s powerful striking. Zhang won the title in an ultra-close split decision to plant herself atop the division.

Since that bout Joanna has not competed inside the cage, in the ring or on the mat. No doubt she needed some time off from the damage she undertook that night in 2020.

Since 2017 Joanna is 3-4 in the division only beating Andrade (five years ago), Tecla Torres in 2018 and Michelle Waterson in 2019, all when Joanna was a skinny striker with length, determination and unrelenting striking force/pressure. 

Since the Zhang loss, Joanna has shown interest in pursuing life outside of the cage. We’ve all witnessed her physical transformation from a scrawny, wiry, striking assassin early in her career to a young woman who is now model attractive and has had the opportunity to change her pencil-like physique by body augmentation.
