This week’s UFC Vegas 17 card is the final production of the year, and it may also be as deep a fight slate as we have seen in 2020. Fourteen fights featuring athletes from eight countries equipped with varying combinations of mixed martial arts expertise will give fight fans a fertile arena from which to profit one more time this year.
Let’s also throw a veil of motivation on the athletes in this production as the UFC announced that it expects to cut approximately 60 fighters very soon. The impetus to win Saturday is as strong as it can be for these fighters looking to remain with the UFC.
Last week Charles Oliveira finally received his chance to compete with the elite in the lightweight division. Oliveira dominated Tony Ferguson on his way to a one-sided decision that solidified him as the UFC’s No. 1-ranked lightweight. The result enhanced “Insight the Octagon” profitability with a + 150 winner.
