UFC on Fox 22 Undercard Betting Preview
Posted by: Charlie Smith
While some online UFC betting fans may still be reeling over the announcement that Conor McGregor will be cast in next season’s Game of Thrones, and other fans may still be recovering from the brutal head kicks we saw at UFC 206, it is still time to prepare for the UFC’s subsequent event; UFC on Fox 22. We’ve already taken a look at the scheduled main card and broken down the headlining match, but let’s take a look now at the undercard matches and see what odds the MMA sportsbooks are giving each fighter.
MMA Odds – UFC on Fox 22 – Saturday, December 17th
Luis Henrique da Silva 1½ (-115) -225 vs. Paul Craig 1½ (-105) +185
UFC on Fox 22 will be held on December 17th at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California, the same arena the Sacramento Kings use to play their home games. Paige VanZant, who recently came out about being bullied during high school, will be headlining the night by taking on former Invicta FC Atomweight Champion Michelle Waterson. That matchup is a perfect way to end a main card that also includes Mickey Gall vs. Sage Northcutt and Urijah Faber vs. Brad Pickett. No doubt about it, this is one event online UFC betting fans won’t want to miss.
As usual the undercard features a spectrum of odds across UFC betting lines. One bout that should prove promising is the matchup between Paul Craig and Luis Henrique Silva. Craig has been raising eyebrows for his recent run through the European circuit, earning his 8 wins by stoppage, 7 of which came in the first round. Silva (12-0) is coming off a knockout of UFC veteran Ildemar Alcantara; 8 of Silva’s 12 stoppage wins have come in the first round as well. Craig has excellent mobility for a man of his stature and has a deadly knack for capitalizing on submission opportunities. Silva is much stronger oh his feet, striking and ultimately this matchup should prove more than entertaining.
Another bout online UFC betting fans might want to keep an eye out for is the bout between Cole Miller and Mizuto Hirota. Miller (21-10) had an explosive start to his MMA career but has since stuttered, and Miller has even had troubles with USADA. Hirota (17-7-2) is one of the few fighters representing Japan in the UFC and has recently been putting on quite a spectacle in his fights.
