Hernandez Headlines Fight Night Card
UFC odds are available for the entire card, and we have found three of the best fights to include in our UFC parlay, including Arlovski vs. Mayes.
Kiwi Kara-France Eyes KO
UFC betting markets have Kara-France at -115 to beat Albazi. It won’t be an easy fight, but we think the Kiwi fighter could win by knockout.
If he gets into the clinch with the Iraqi fighter, he could be in trouble. Therefore, he needs to keep his distance and stay on the outside.
If he fights a smart fight, Kara-France should outscore Albazi, who is 16-1 but has yet to face the level of opposition that Kara-France has faced.
The New Zealander fought for the title against Brandon Moreno in 2022, which followed a knockout win over Cody Garbrandt.
He’s a dangerous fighter, and we think there is value with sport betting markets.
“It’s when I land the first hard shot,” Kara-France said. “If he bites down and comes back, then he wants to fight, and if he doesn’t, it will show.
“I’ve landed my right hand on many people before — Cody Garbrandt was a prime example. He overlooked me, I hit him with the first right hand that landed, and it was all downhill from there.”

Experience With Elliott
Tim Elliott is 19-12-1, but he often takes tough fights and is eyeing a victory against Victor Altamirano on Saturday.
Altamirano is a step down from the usual class of fighter Elliott faces, which is why online gambling markets have him at -180 to win.
The 36-year-old comes off a decision win against Tagir Ulanbekov last year, who was 14-2, so he can beat the guys coming through the ranks.
Most of his wins come by decision, so he’s lacking knockout power, but he will likely outscore his opponents over three rounds.
Elliott has gone through a public divorce, which included his wife cheating on him on their wedding night, and throughout their eight-year marriage. If that’s not motivation to win a fight, then we’re not sure what is.
There could be good value with UFC live betting markets. The fight should go the distance, so include Elliott in your UFC live betting picks after the first round.
- Pick: Tim Elliott (-180)
Arlovski Turns Back Time
He might be 44 years old, but Andrei Arlovski is capable of turning back the clock and beating Don’Tale Mayes at UFC Fight Night.
Sportsbook markets have Arlovski at +115 to win his 56th professional MMA fight, and we’re not betting against the Belarussian.
Mayes isn’t exactly a top-level heavyweight at 9-5, so it’s a good chance for Arlovski to keep his UFC career afloat.
History could be made, and we think he’s worth the risk at the odds, so include the underdog in your UFC parlay picks.
