UFC Fight Night: Sandhagen vs Song Props
This Saturday’s UFC Fight Night may be flying under the radar, but it’s filled with plenty of action-packed fights. The UFC matched similarly styled fighters with the errant squash bout or two to ensure viewers stay tuned from start to finish. Find the best UFC bets via the props as plenty of these fights have outcomes that can be had with decent props.
Robertson, Agapova to Get Messy
These flyweights are both finishers, hence why the online gambling line has a wide line of -225 for this to not need judges. Mariya Agapova (10-3-0) has finished all three of her UFC victories while Gillian Robertson (10-7-0) has the most finishes in the division with six. The Canadian should exploit Agapova’s poor fight IQ and endurance and submit her within two rounds.
- Pick: Robertson By KO, TKO, DQ or Submission (+130)
Lookboonmee Schools Gomes
Loma Lookboonmee (6-3-0) is the lone Thai fighter on the roster for good reason: She’s a clinical Muay Thai striker. She’s matched against Denise Gomes (6-1-0), who is also a kickboxer but a lower-level one. Lookboonmee should beat Gomes without much controversy. A straight bet online on Lookboonmee is at -210. Instead, take her by decision at close to an even price.
- Pick: Lookboonmee By Decision or Tec. Decision (-105)
Boser Bulldozes Past Nascimento
Another Canadian should roll this Saturday as Tanner “Bulldozer” Boser (20-8-1) starches Alan Nascimento (8-1-0). This is not an easy fight as the UFC betting odds indicate, but Boser is sharper and faster. He moves around better than Nascimento, who hits hard like most big heavyweights but is flat-footed and more of a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specialist. Boser should light up Nascimento, who absorbs a whopping 6.14 significant strikes per minute.
- Pick: Boser By KO, TKO or DQ (+130)
Chidi Bang Bangs Robocop
This fight is almost guaranteed a finish as the -250 line indicates. Middleweights Chidi Njokuani (22-7-0) and Gregory Rodrigues (12-4-0) are knockout artists. The former has won four straight fights by knockout while four of “Robocop’s” last five wins have come via KO. Whoever catches who first could pull off the victory and the odds favor Njokuani.
The American has a four-inch reach advantage and is nearly flawless as a middleweight (most of his losses have come at catch-weight or another weight class). He’s peaking late in his career, as his UFC victories have shown. Njokuani should whittle down Rodrigues’ defenses and then finish him.
- Pick: Njokuani By KO, TKO or DQ (+200)

Sandhagen Takes Song to Deep Waters
A potential title eliminator headlines this UFC Fight Night with prospects-turned-contenders in Cory Sandhagen (14-4-0) and Song Yadong (19-6-1, 1 NC). The former has fought significantly better competition and has only lost against the champions. We favor Sandhagen to beat Song here and at a decent price on the sportsbook.
For more value, bet on this fight to not reach the final horn. Three of Sandhagen’s last five fights have not gone to a decision while Song’s last two wins have come via knockout. Sandhagen will weather Song’s storm before taking him to deep waters and finishing him late in the fight. If Song pulls off the upset, it will be because he hurts Sandhagen early and knocks him out.
- Pick: Fight To Go The Distance – No (+110)
- Pick: C Sandhagen In Round 4 +2200 or C Sandhagen In Round 5 (+3000)
