This Friday’s UFC Fight Night 50: Jacare vs Mousasi II is a really stacked card, especially for a free TV event. We’ll be looking to get back to profitable after a small loss at UFC 177, but luckily we have tons of cards in September and early October to make some money on. In terms of our overall performance, we are up a total of 60.55 units for an average ROI of 15.51%. We have made money on 7 of the last 9 months and 3 of the last 4 events. All this is detailed in our betting tips track record.

It was a close, but no cigar type of night as we were inches away from profiting over 4 units. Instead, the judges scored the co-main event in favour of Tony Ferguson even though he was lying on his back for more than half the fight. In the end, we lost 1.75 units and went 1-2 on our bets. We didn’t have a bet on the main event, but TJ Dillashaw was dominant in disposing of a very game Joe Soto to retain his UFC bantamweight title.
With Henry Cejudo and Renan Barao succumbing to their weight cuts, we’re left with an 8 fight card which is looking like the worst UFC pay-per-view in company history. In addition, our bets on Dillashaw and Soto to win their respective bouts go out the window. We were anticipating adding 2 bets to our card in this post, but one of those bets was going to bet Scott Jorgensen to defeat Henry Cejudo as an underdog, but that’s obviously off the table now. Regardless, we will try to bring you the best value on the card with what’s left. Our main card predictions and bets came out earlier in the week so check those out for our rational behind the Correia pick.

UFC 177: Dillashaw vs Barao II is less than a week away and we’re here with our early betting tips for an incredibly weak UFC pay-per-view. We get that the UFC is putting on more cards and therefore any individual card will be mildly diluted, but EVERY pay-per-view card has to have at least 3 somewhat meaningful fights. Meaningful can mean anything the fans can get behind. For example, Sonnen vs Wanderlei wouldn’t have been very meaningful in the title picutre, but it is meaningful to the casual fan since both Sonnen and Silva are big names among casual fans. The only fight that means anything at UFC 177, besides the main event is Correia vs Baszler and even in that, both fighters would need at least 2 big wins before getting a title shot. Regardless, there are some betting opportunities we like.
