Main Card

Chris Duncan

Chris Duncan (9-1) will make his octagon debut after fighting in various MMA promotions such as the Ultimate Fight League and Bellator. After absorbing his first setback at the hands of Viacheslav Borshchev in Week 7 of the 2021 Dana White’s Contender Series in October 2021, he attempted again to secure that contract and was successful in August 2022 when he knocked out Campbell in just one round. The victory rendered him an opportunity to fight in the UFC where he will try to become a top-flight contender in the 155-pound category. The six-foot fighter has strung up eight stoppage victories (seven by knockouts and one by submission) in his 10-fight professional career and he looks to gain his first win inside the octagon against the veteran Morales.

Omar Morales

Omar Morales (11-3, 3-3 UFC) started his career with 10 consecutive wins, which include decision victories against Ma Dong-hyun and Gabriel Benitez. However, the Venezuelan fighter stumbled to his first loss at the hands of Giga Chikadze in October 2020. Although he would bounce back against Shane Young five months later, he would fall anew in his next two fights against Jonathan Pearce and Uros Medic. In 11 wins, Morales has stopped seven fighters (two by knockout and five by submissions) and he is looking to break into the winning column once more to raise his status in the 155-pound category.

Duncan vs Morales Betting Picks

Initial online sports odds favor Duncan to secure the win against Morales due to his recent string of victories. His recent knockout win against Campbell proved to be enough to place the bets on him especially that the Venezuelan is coming off two straight setbacks. However, do not sleep on Morales as he still has the skills and experience to beat an opponent in Duncan’s caliber. Expect a close fight between the two fighters with Duncan winning via a close decision.
