UFC Props Bet Analysis
Amanda Nunes vs Irene Aldana
Amanda Nunes is defending her title, not against the original contender Julianna Pena, but her replacement Irene Aldana. Nunes deserves the nickname Lioness and is probably the heaviest female MMA hitter. Yet, she is not getting any younger. Nunes is probably going to take this fight lightly, smartly collecting points throughout all 5 rounds.
Charles Oliveira vs. Beneil Dariush
If any bout on the card can end in round 1, it’s this one, largely because of Oliveira’s submission skills. The former lightweight champion is eager to show he’s still one of the best. The Brazilian’s 11-1 record in his last 12 fights, with three straight submissions in his last 5 bouts, plus a KO, indicates he can handle Dariush expediently.
David Dvorak vs.Steve Erceg
It’s going to be a slugfest in the octagon. Both are tough fighters buying their time for an opponent to drop his guard. Nether is known as a finisher, and that signals a fight that will go the distance.
