Insight the Octagon took a step back Saturday when Kyler Phillips lost via decision, causing our parlay with Mateusz Gamrot to crash. Profitability in 2021 stands 19-13, + 8.68 units as we head into the UFC Vegas 33 fight card Saturday, with preliminary bouts kicking off at 6 p.m. ET.
After perusing this card, on which the co-main event was lost Monday, it appears that after several weeks of slates stacked with competitive bouts and sensible matchmaking, we finally get a schedule that appears to be goulash. Several fringe athletes and fighters who need to get work were tossed together to create this slate.
This card has a handful of head-scratchers as well as a few potential barn burners. Let’s focus on the latter.
Sean Strickland -215 vs. Uriah Hall + 185
Middleweight (185 pounds), main event
The main event provides a couple of diversely trained strikers ranked within the division’s top 15.
