The quality UFC action continues on Saturday and we’re excited for the four-fight undercard.
Jan Blachowicz vs Aleksandar Rakic headline the card, but the co-main between Ryan Spann and Ion Cutelaba could steal the show.
UFC betting markets have value odds available for every undercard fight.
Odds Favour Cutelaba
Ion Cutelaba has been well-backed to beat Ryan Spann following his decision victory over Devin Clark.
The Moldovian 28-year-old has amassed 16 wins and seven losses and he’s still good enough to rise up the heavyweight rankings.
Beating the dangerous Ryan Spann would achieve that goal, but beating Spann is easier said than done.
The American suffered a first loss submission loss to Anthony Smith, but looked strong when knocking out Misha Cirkunov last year.
Consistency has marred his career, which is why the sportsbook has Spann at +175 to bounce back.
Cutalaba has more upside and he should get the job done.
Grant Ready To Smoke Opponent
Davey Grant might be 36 years old, but the English fighter is the heavy favorite to beat Louis Smolka.
The former Ultimate Fighter contestant lost by decision to Adrian Yanez in November and to Marlon Vera in June, but he meets an easier opponent and he demands attention.
He is enjoying the heavy schedule and wants to fight as much as possible.
“I want to be active; I want to be fighting all the time and getting momentum behind me,” Grant told UFC.com.
“When I’m doing this, I’m doing what I love. It’s not as if I have a bad life, but I like to be focused on something. I like to know there’s something coming up and I’m focused on it because this is what I am about. I want to get as many fights in as possible.”
Grant owns knockout wins over Jonathan Martinez and Elias Theodorou, so we’re liking his chances of doing the same against Smolka.
Smolka was knocked out in the first round against Vince Morales and that could take some getting over. Therefore, taking Grant to win is a much better betting proposition.
Back the Blonde Fighter
Katlyn “The Blonde Fighter” Chookagian is favored to beat Amanda Ribas and we think betting online markets have it right.
The 17-4 fighter is the -180 favorite following a win over Jennifer Maia and she is shooting for four consecutive wins.
Her most recent loss came to Jessica Andrade in 2020, so she has beaten the fighters on her level, which includes Ribas.
Ribas is 11-2, but most of her wins have come against much easier opposition. She lost to Marina Rodriguez by knockout in the second round, which isn’t a good form guide.
The -180 odds are short but we wouldn’t be leaving her out of selections.
Torres To Expose Camacho
Manuel Torres makes his UFC debut after recording three consecutive wins, including a Contender Series victory via first-round knockout.
The Mexican has been beaten twice via submission, so he’ll need to watch out for that, but Camacho isn’t much of a wrestler.
Camacho was knocked out by Justin Jaynes in 2020 and he hasn’t fought since. The long layoff is never a good sign and it’s not the first time he has been exposed when fighting talented opponents.
We are seeing solid betting support for Torres, who has firmed into -130, and despite his lack of UFC experience, he could be a fighter to follow.
