UFC Vegas 57 | Prelim Preview
Saturday, June 25th (10:00 PM EST Main Card, 7:00 PM EST Prelims)
Carlos Ulberg vs. Tafon Nchukwi
BATHROOM BREAK - Ulberg is a boring kickboxer at his best and a reckless power puncher at his worst. His best quality is being best buds with middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. Speaking of middleweights, Nchukwi used to be a mediocre one, but he’s now upgraded to being a mediocre light heavyweight.
FGTDalgo Bet - Fight Goes The Distance 1u @ +140 (better than -112.9)
Shayilan Nuerdanbieke vs. TJ Brown
BATHROOM BREAK - Journeymen featherweights who historically haven’t been violent enough in their mediocrity to bother caring about.
FGTDalgo Bet - Fight Goes The Distance 1u @ -175 (better than -272.4)
Raulian Paiva vs. Sergey Morozov
WATCH - Here come the bantamweights to save the day! Paiva’s last two fights have been incredibly fun since returning to bantamweight with a win against top prospect Kyler Phillips and a loss against #13 Sean O’Malley. Morozov had a rough debut having to face Umar Nurmagomedov but has a storied past as an exciting M-1 champion and is currently coming off a fight of the night bonus.
MMAalgo Bet - Raulian Paiva 3.5u @ +125 (better than -133.1)
JP Buys vs. Cody Durden
WATCH - Yes, you have to watch these two duds. Not just because they are flyweights, but also because of the hilarious saga of JP Buys’ ex-wife. He was married to fellow UFC fighter Cheyanne Vismas who left him for Roman Dolidze after he lost his first 2 UFC fights, and the two former spouses continue to beef about it on social media. Can JP Buys finally turn his life around or is he doomed to be mocked eternally online?
Brian Kelleher vs. Mario Bautista
IF YOU ARE BORED - These are decently fun bantamweights with 0 relevancy to the rankings and probably a 50/50 on whether it’ll end up as being worth seeing in hindsight. Funny that Kelleher is also on this card, they must’ve purposefully stacked it with all the fighters who have lost to Umar Nurmagomedov in order to hype him up even more.
MMAalgo Bet - Mario Bautista 3.5u @ -165 (better than -281.4)
FGTDalgo Bet - Fight Goes The Distance 1u @ -105 (better than -130.6)
Vanessa Demopoulos vs. Jinh Yu Frey
BATHROOM BREAK - If they were a lot younger I might hype this up considering the wins they are coming off of, but both of these fighters will never reach the top 10 of the strawweight division and in women’s MMA that means don’t bother.
FGTDalgo Bet - Fight Goes The Distance 1u @ -200 (better than -228.4)
