UFC 181: Hendricks vs Lawler II is still almost 2 weeks away, but with the main card odds now released, there is one bet we felt compelled to take early and give away for free as we don’t expect the line to last. Our full betting tips won’t be available until next Thursday at the earliest, but you can pre-order them on our Sellfy page to be the first to receive them as they are released. In terms of our recent performance, we had a great month of November going 8-5 for a profit of 11.51 units and an ROI of 42.63%. It was one of our better months in recent memory and got us back on track after losses in both September and October. UFC 181 will be the first event of December and we’ll be looking to cement our place as the top MMA handicappers in the world with a good performance.
The recent heavyweight title fight between a 37 year old Fabricio Werdum and a 40 year old Mark Hunt got us thinking…when are UFC fighters usually in their prime? In addition, if our memories serve us correctly, it seems like successful fighters in the lighter weight classes tend to be younger than successful fighters in the heavier weight classes. We started out by looking at the 128 male fighers ranked in the UFC’s top 15 rankings. We know, we know, these rankings aren’t always the greatest and sure fighter X should be ranked ahead of fighter Y, but who cares we are considering the dataset as a whole so if a fighter or two is subbed out, it won’t make a huge difference.
UFC Fight Night 57: Swanson vs Edgar went down last night and while we weren’t able to watch it live, we just finished catching up on the action and it was a very successful night for us! Not only did our free bet cash and make some money for those who didn’t sign up for our premium picks, but we went 1-1 on our premium picks which were both underdogs for an additional couple unit profit. Overall, it was a pretty exciting night of fights and the profit is just the icing on the cake. Congratulations to all of those who tailed and here is our paid betting tips document.
UFC Fight Night 57: Swanson vs Edgar goes down this Saturday night from Austin, Texas and features some pretty decent fights for a fight night card. In the main event, you have top featherweights Frankie Edgar and Cub Swanson throwing down to be next in line for a shot at Jose Aldo (possibly, maybe). The co-main event features hard hitting lightweights Bobby Green and Edson Barboza. In addition, flyweights Joseph Benavidez and Dustin Ortiz will throw down early on the main card to move one step closer to a title shot in that division. For The Fight Predictor, we will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing 4 unit loss at UFC 180: Werdum vs Hunt. We can’t complain too much about it though as we are still up 6.93 units on the month after a very hot start at UFC Fight Night 56/57 where we profited 10.93 units and went 5-1 on our bets. Our full UFC Fight Night 57: Swanson vs Edgar betting tips are available on our Sellfy page. Pre-order them today and you will be the first to receive picks as they are released! This post will detail our free betting tip for the event!
So UFC 180: Werdum vs Hunt is just a few days away and we’re here with a free betting tip. To be honest, this card really isn’t very good for betting. Generally, pay-per-view cards tend to have a lot of well known fighters which generally means there are many more spots where we can be confident in placing bets. This card does not fit that bill at all. An example of this is the first two fights of the main card. Usually the UFC will have a pretty exciting fight to kick off the card and get the fans into it. On Saturday, that is not the case though. Of the four fighters in the first two fights of the main card, only 1 had his last fight in the UFC, and that was a loss and his debut (Chris Heatherly). One of the fighters (Hector Urbina) has gone 1-2 on the REGIONAL circuit in his last 3. I don’t even know why the UFC would sign a guy like that, let alone letting him be on the main card of a pay-per-view. Regardless, we are picking our spots carefully and we currently have at least 3 bets planned (but could be as high as 4 by Saturday depending on the line movement). You can pre-order our full bets at Sellfy which will put you first in line for receiving the picks. We hope to have our full plays out Friday night.
