Main Card & UFC Fight Night 145 Betting Odds
Blachowicz enters this Saturday’s matchup sporting a 23-7 professional MMA record. On top of that, the Polish fighter enters this bout riding a 4 bout winning streak. In fact, Blachowicz’ most recent defeat came at the hands of Patrick Cummins at UFC 210 back in April of 2017. Having nearly gone two years without a loss, there’s no question that Blachowicz is vying for a dominant outing this Saturday. By the looks of it, this weekend’s UFC betting online odds are having a hard time pegging him as a favorite. Although he’s not the underdog, the odds are slightly favoring the Brazilian Santos here. These two have never faced each other in the octagon and it will be interesting to see how this one turns out. The odds are predicting a rather contentious bout and we’re all hoping that this one lives up to that kind of analysis.
Preliminary Card & UFC Fight Night 145 Betting Odds
Thiago Santos steps into this weekend’s fight sporting a 20-6 professional MMA record. Like his counterpart, Santos brings a bit of a win streak to the table. Albeit it’s only 3 consecutive fights won to his opponent’s 4. Nevertheless this weekend’s bout gives him the opportunity to surpass Blachowicz while the world watches. In addition to winning the last 3 in a row, Santos has knocked out his last two opponents consecutively. This contrasts what Blachowicz has done since 2 of his last 4 wins have come via submission. This leads us to believe that the Brazilian will want to keep this fight standing, however odd that might sound. But in the end there’s no telling how this one will turn out. In the final analysis however, Santos is probably your best bet here
