Have a Cup of Hot Preliminary UFC Betting ChocolatePosted by: Mike Davis
The preliminary card at the 113th UFC betting Fight Night event on Sunday in Glasgow is composed of an even number of fighters who are undoubtedly deserving of many adjectives to describe them.
Danny Roberts vs. Bobby Nash
Weight class: Welter
Offshore sportsbook odds for fans who bet on UFC:
Bobby Nash 2½ (-105) +170
Danny Roberts 2½ (-115) -200
‘Hot Chocolate’ Roberts had a seven-fight winning streak – which included his first two UFC fights – snapped by Mike Perry by KO at UFC 204 on October 8, 2016 in Manchester. His only loss prior to that had been a submission loss to Pavel Doroftei in 2011. In his 15-fight professional career, Roberts has won five by knockout and five by submission – his other three wins coming by unanimous decision.
Nashty had a streak of his own ended by Li Jingliang in his promotional debut at UFC on Fox: Shevchenko vs. Peña in January in Denver. He did have the attenuating circumstance that he was a last minute replacement for Yancy Medeiros, who was expected to face Jingliang. Nash had won his previous six fights in a row in such promotions as Global Knockout, RFA, HFC, and FCOC.
Alexandre Pantoja vs. Neil Seery UFC betting preview
Weight class: Fly
Odds for fans who bet on UFC:
Neil Seery 2½ (-210) +290
Alexandre Pantoja 2½ (+175) -350
‘The Cannibal’ Pantoja has won his last 10 consecutive fights including his UFC debut – a split decision win over Eric Shelton at UFC on Fox 23 this February. The Brazilian is a former RFA Flyweight Champion and won the AXS TV Flyweight Superfight Championship.
‘2Tap’ Seery has split his six UFC fights so far and has lost two of his last three, including an UD loss to Kyoji Horiguchi at UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs. Arlovski on 8 May 2016. He was expected to face Ian McCall at UFC Fight Night 99 last November McCall had to pull out after becoming ill due the effects of his weight cut. As a result, Seery has not fought in over a year, a long turnaround that could benefit his opponent.
Brett Johns vs. Albert Morales UFC betting preview
Weight class: Bantam
Odds for fans who bet on UFC:
Albert Morales 2½ (-230) +320
Brett Johns 2½ (+190) -390
‘The Pikey’ Johns is undefeated in 13 fights, including his promotional debut with the UFC; a unanimous decision against Kwan Ho Kwak at UFC Fight Night: Mousasi vs. Hall 2 on 19 November 2016 in Belfast. The Welshman is a former CEPPFN Bantamweight Champion, CWFC Bantamweight Champion, and Titan FC Bantamweight Championship (of which he was stripped failing to make weight in his last match with that promotion).
‘The Warrior’ Morales has gone through record gamut in his first three UFC fights – draw against Alejandro Pérez at UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs. Johnson on September 17, 2016, loss to Thomas Almeida at UFC Fight Night: Bader vs. Nogueira 2 on November 19, 2016, and win versus Andre Soukhamthath at UFC 209 in March. What’s next? A no-contest? We’ll know soon enough.
