UFC Fight Night: Volkov vs Rozenstruik

  • Date: June 4
  • Venue: UFC APEX, Las Vegas
  • Broadcast: ESPN+

The UFC APEX’s small cage should guarantee a knockout when Alexander Volkov and Jairzinho Rozenstruik collide. These heavyweights have a combined 33 career knockouts and are fighting for “next” in the heavyweight title picture. The online sports betting odds favor Volkov and for this fight to go past the third round but not to a decision.

UFC 275: Teixeira vs Prochazka

  • Date: June 11
  • Venue: Singapore Indoor Stadium, Singapore
  • Broadcast: Pay-per-view, ESPN, ESPN+

Glover Teixiera returns to defend his newly won UFC Light Heavyweight Championship following one of the biggest upsets of 2021. The longtime veteran fends off knockout artist Jiri Prochazka as another underdog. Going by the UFC odds, this one will get finished quickly.

June’s biggest event also features UFC Women’s Flyweight Champion Valentina Shevchenko as she dusts another challenger in Taila Santos. And as a feature fight, former strawweight champions Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Weili Zhang rematch from what was 2020’s greatest fight.

PFL 4: 2022 Regular Season

  • Date: June 17
  • Venue: Overtime Elite Arena, Atlanta
  • Broadcast: ESPN, ESPN+

PFL returns with lightweights and light heavyweights taking center stage on a Friday night. Clay Collard fights Alex Martinez at 155 lbs. in a bout that should favor Collard. In the co-main event is Antonio Carlos Junior against fellow Brazilian Bruce Souto. Like the last time, Carlos Junior should be a heavy favorite on the betting lines.

UFC Fight Night: Kattar vs Emmett

  • Date: June 18
  • Venue: Moody Center, Austin
  • Broadcast: ESPN 2

The UFC christens the newly built Moody Center with a banger of a main event: featherweights Calvin Kattar and Josh Emmett slug it out. Kattar is coming off five rounds of domination against Giga Chikadze while Emmett has won four straight. To the winner goes a potential shot at the king: Alexander Volkanovski.

PFL 5: 2022 Regular Season

  • Date: June 24
  • Venue: Overtime Elite Arena, Atlanta
  • Broadcast: ESPN, ESPN+

The reigning PFL 2021 heavyweight champion Bruno Cappelozza headlines this next event against Matheus Scheffel. Cappelozza is one of MMA’s fastest rising stars and will follow up his first-round knockout from PFL 2 as a potentially massive favorite here. In the co-main event, former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis aims for his second straight win under the promotion.

Bellator 282: Mousasi vs Eblen

  • Date: June 24
  • Venue: Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville
  • Broadcast: Showtime

Bellator counter-programs the PFL with a middleweight title fight a champ Gegard Mousasi defends against unbeaten prodigy Johnny Eblen. Expect Mousasi to be favored here even if Eblen is a prolific wrestler who has been unstoppable in the promotion.

UFC Fight Night: Tsarukyan vs Gamrot

  • Date: June 25
  • Venue: UFC APEX, Las Vegas
  • Broadcast: ESPN+

Two of the UFC’s brightest lightweight prospects Arman Tsarukyan and Mateusz Gamrot tussle for up to 25 minutes two days before International Fight Week. The betting lines should be tight here as these 155ers have been on a tear for the last three years.

UFC 276: Adesanya vs Cannonier*

  • Date: July 2
  • Venue: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas
  • Broadcast: Pay-per-view, ESPN, ESPN+

Technically this isn’t June anymore, but UFC 276 odds is right at the beginning of July to conclude International Fight Week. Middleweight king Israel Adesanya returns to defend against the heavy-handed Jared Cannonier. Adesanya is a significant favorite as he usually is though a bet on this fight not going to a decision at plus-money could be the best UFC bet.
