UFC Vegas 64 | Main Card Preview
Saturday, November 5th (7:00 PM EST Main Card, 4:00 PM EST Prelims)
Marina Rodriguez vs. Amanda Lemos
WATCH - The strawweight division had been sliding down my entertainment power rankings for a while between the snoozer title Rose v Esparza title fight and the stagnant top 5 veteran contenders. But this is the fight that brings life back into the division. #3 Rodriguez is on a 4-win streak over #5, #6, #9 and #11 since her only career loss to the current champion. It is ridiculous that she now has to face #7 instead of getting a top 3 opponent or title fight, and at age 35 the window is beginning to close. It’s time for the UFC to capitalize on her exciting moment instead of blocking her out of the top of the division with rematches that no one has asked for.
Neil Magny vs. Daniel Rodriguez
BATHROOM BREAK - #14 Daniel “only wins robberies” Rodriguez takes on #13 Neil “only fun moments are when getting crushed” Magny for most underserving member of the welterweight rankings.
MMAalgo Bet - Neil Magny 3.5u @ -120 (better than -172.3)
Chase Sherman vs. Josh Parisian
WATCH - These two big boys are allergic to two things: winning multiple UFC fights in a row, and having a fight that isn’t a classic unranked heavyweight swang and banger! This fight is about to be historic though, because them both entering off a win means one of them is guaranteed to somehow find themselves on a two fight win streak!
Tagir Ulanbekov vs. Nate Maness
WATCH - MAIN CARD FLYWEIGHTS! This is not a drill people! Probably the first time in recorded history that unranked flyweights have been placed on a main card.
FGTDalgo Bet - Fight Goes The Distance 1u @ -175 (better than -218.0)
Grant Dawson vs. Mark Madsen
WATCH - This is the people’s main event right here! Both unbeaten in the UFC in the deep deep division of lightweight. And while their styles aren’t the most exciting, their balanced abilities could take them to the very top. It is shocking this fight doesn’t have a ranking attached to either guy but that’s what happens when the bottom of this division’s rankings are occupied by has-beens like #14 Tony Ferguson and #13 Conor McGregor.
MMAalgo Bet - Grant Dawson 3.5u @ -215 (better than -229.1)
