The UFC returns to Australia with UFC 221, headlined by an interim-title showdown between Yoel Romero and middleweights Luke Rockhold.
The event comes with a tilt between New Zealander Mark Hunt and Curtis Blaydes.
The Best Bets for UFC Fight Night 125 of last week went 2-1. (The John Dodson garbage was canceled.) That pushes our overall record to 18-11, but we dropped a little cash a week, decreasing our entire profit down to $66.33. (Perhaps I should go back and read my 6 Tips for Successful MMA Betting?)
Time to contact our ways that are profitable with the best bets for UFC 221.
BEN NGUYEN (+100) VS JUSSIER FORMIGA (-120)
Jussier Formiga (20-5) can grapple and has one of the best back matches in the business. He is an leech when he gets his pins. But even though Formiga has a much better body of work against some world-class men in the branch, it is hard to bet against rising star Ben Nguyen (16-6).
«Ben 10» has improved certain aspects of his game, like scrambling and takedown defense, to be able to keep his fights standing. Why? Because if his struggles stay vertical, he will knock off his opponent’s head. He is a title contender who UFC loss came in what was a slobber-knocker of a struggle, into Louis Smolka.
This +100 moneyline for Nguyen at BetOnline is a wonderful round number.
