This week’s UFC 258 from Las Vegas will lack the international flavor of last week’s event, but it will feature several competitive matchups with a main event that is compelling in every way. We’re again in the smaller cage this week, which might not have much impact since the card is rife with lighter weight classes.
Last week we had nice wins on Beneil Dariush + 110 and Seungwoo Choi + 210 but lost a unit on Manel Kape, who throughout his performance against Alexandre Pantoja looked ill prepared to compete at this level. Kape will have to improve exponentially if he aspires to defeat elite flyweights.
2021 profitability: 4-3 + 1.1 unit.
Kamaru Usman -280 vs. Gilbert Burns + 230
welterweight (170 pounds), championship
