It will be hard for UFC Fight Night: San Diego to match last week, where finishes occurred in all of the fights. The UFC betting lines expect plenty of finishes Saturday, which will be a mix of knockouts and submissions. While the earlier fights should play out as anticipated, we’re in for some stunning results later in the night.

UFC Fight Night: San Diego Props
Quinlan Is Still Sauced Up
We featured Josh Quinlan (5-0-0) heavily in last week’s edition. We’ll do it again. This fight was pushed back because, allegedly, Quinlan’s USADA results are still showing steroids. It’s a big reason we’re betting him to knock Jason Witt (19-8-0) out. For some extra cash, bet him to do it in the first.
- Pick: J Quinlan By KO/TKO/DQ and Round 1 +200
Wham, Bam, Thank You, Nam!
Tyson Nam (20-12-1) is a special kind of fighter, successful in the UFC’s 125-pound division as a 38-year-old. He’s losing to Ode Osbourne (11-4-0), however. While Nam can crack, Osbourne hits harder and has a four-inch reach advantage. If they both threw heaters at the same time, bet online on Osbourne to connect and sleep, Nam.
- Pick: O Osbourne By KO, TKO, or DQ +180
Jauregui and Lucindo Light the Night
We don’t always bet on low-level women’s MMA fights, but here we are. At least, we expect Yazmin Jauregui (8-0-0) and Iasmin Lucindo (13-4-0) to throw down. These ladies shouldn’t be shy at heaving the heavy leather until someone gets stopped here. At +125, we like the online sports betting odds that someone will be.
- Pick: Fight To Go The Distance? – No (+125)
GM3 Has A Tough Squeeze
We’ve both won and lost money on Gerald “GM3” Meerschaert (34-15-0). By now it’s obvious what happens in his fights. Either he wins a fight by submission or loses it. The UFC’s submissions leader in the middleweight division has a clear path to victory against Bruno Silva (22-7-0).
The Brazilian is apparently a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We’re not buying it. Meerschaert should be able to get Silva down at one point and once accomplished, squeeze him till he taps. Of course, Silva may just smoke Meerschaert in the first. Given the 5-1 odds, we think it’s worth a wager.
- Pick: G Meerschaert By Submission +500

Nate The Money Train
Nate “The Train” Landwehr (15-4-0) returns as another sizable underdog. The last time he was one, he submitted Ludovit Klein. His reward is getting to fight David Onama (10-1-0), a massive 145-pounder with explosive power to boot. The UFC is feeding Landwehr, who already owns two first-round KO losses, to Onama.
Onama and his backers better hope he smokes Landwehr quickly. Otherwise, we like Landwehr’s odds of dragging Onama into the deep end and submitting him. At 16-1, this may be the best bet on the UFC fight card.
- Pick: N Landwehr By Submission +1600
