UFC Fight Night may take place in Vegas, but it has a very European vibe to it. Half the main card fighters hail from the continent, including four from the main three fights. And they’re not half bad, either. Many – if not most – should have spectacular outcomes for UFC lines and props.
As well explore a variety of other UFC odds here to win!
Bukauskas Lights Up Pauga
Modestas Bukauskas (14-5-0) is set to style on Zac Pauga (6-1-0). The Lithuanian returned to the UFC with a vengeance and upset TysonPedro a few events ago. Now, he’s taking a step down in competition in the slow lumbering Pauga. Bukauskas has the striking edge and should piece him up. However, the American is also tough, and could make this a dogfight. Bet online on a decision.
Salikhov Kung Fu’s Dalby to Decision
Muslim Salikhov (19-3-0) hails from Russia, but he’s the “King of Kung Fu.” In a pure striking match, he’s hard to beat. Nicolas Dalby (21-4-1) will have to do some wrestling. But Dalby isn’t that and is a bit of a crowd-pleaser. He’ll try to out-Kung Fu the Kung Fu master. Bad idea. Salikhov is the rightful UFC pick via scorecards.
Duncan Edges Petrosyan in Kickboxing Affair
Christian Leroy Duncan (8-0-0) is a hot kickboxing prospect from the U.K. Hise UFC debut ended anti-climactically, so he’s given a solid dance partner in Armen Petrosyan (7-2-0) this time. Petrosyan will stand and trade with Duncan as both are kickboxers. But Duncan will have a sizable eight-inch reach advantage, which he’ll use to outpoint Petrosyan from a distance.

Tsarukyan Makes Short Work of Silva
In a lopsided fight, Arman Tsarukyan (19-3-0) should dispatch Joaquim Silva (12-3-0) handily. But the online sports betting lines are too wide, and the Round 1 props are not hefty enough. The Armenian is not the type to try to knock his opponent out right off the bell. Instead, he’ll methodically break Silva’s defenses down and finish him in the second or third round.

Cannonier Withstands Vettori
The consensus on this main event is that Jared Cannonier (16-6-0) has the power advantage, but Marvin Vettori (19-5-1) has better endurance. So it’s possible for Cannonier to win the early rounds and Vettori to rally and win the championship ones. This will be a razor-thin decision, not unlike Cannonier’s fight with Strickland.
While Cannonier wants to make UFC news by knocking Vettori out, the Italian may be the toughest fighter in the division. He’s also a potent wrestler, albeit not an efficient one. Still, with his stamina and pace, he could neutralize most of Cannonier’s power. So this one should go to the scorecards.
But as far as the best UFC bet, Cannonier to win by decision pays 3-1. That’s more than a finish prop at +230. This is too good to not bet.
