I know you’re all exclusively thinking about the huge card on Saturday night that is UFC 200: Cormier vs Jones II, but there are 2 other cards this week and from a betting perspective, our favourite is the TUF 23 Finale featuring Joanna Jedrzejczyk defending her women’s strawweight title vs Claudia Gadelha. We already brought you a free bet for Thursday and Saturday‘s cards, leaving just Friday without a free play. This post will take care of that as we bring you a free bet for the TUF Finale! By the way, we already have 9 bets for the weekend posted at Cappertek!
In the middle of the televised prelims, former title contender John Moraga takes on Matheus Nicolau in a flyweight bout where Moraga has a lot to lose and Nicolau has a lot to gain. Currently Moraga is just less than a 2 to 1 favourite against his less experienced foe. Overall, the 32 year old Moraga is 16-4. All 4 of Moraga’s losses have come to guys ranked ranked in the top 10 of their respective UFC divisions. Nicolau will be fighting in the Octagon for the second time. He won his first bout vs Bruno Rodrigues. Overall, he is 11-1 and he is just 23 years old. When I saw the line for this fight, I was pretty surprised. You have a seasoned UFC veteran who made it to the top of the division for a title shot and who managed to survive almost a full 5 rounds against the champ Demetrious Johnson taking on a guy who is fighting in the Octagon for just the second time and who lost to the only really notable opponent he faced, Pedro Nobre. Facing Moragae is a huge step up for Nicolau and I’m not sure why Moraga isn’t getting more love from the betting public. Note that Moraga even opened as a 2.5 to 1 favourite and the money has been all over Nicolau. Oh well, hopefully the public’s loss is our gain! We placed a 2 unit bet on John Moraga at 1.58 (-170) at Bookmaker.eu.
