UFC Sports Betting Lines for This Weekend’s Fight NightPosted by: Mike Davis
This UFC sports betting weekend, bettors can take full advantage of our live MMA betting odds by wagering on this weekend’s thrilling event: UFC Fight Night 122. The promotion’s latest event will be headlined by a middleweight bout between former UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping and The Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen middleweight winner Kelvin Gastelum. Bisping got called upon last minute by the promotion to fill in for Anderson Silva, who was recently flagged by USADA for a potential doping violation. Steroid use has long been a complaint of Silva’s career and at his age, it comes as no surprise to find out the Brazilian is doping. Either way, the fact that Bisping is stepping in just weeks after being choked out on national television proves without a shimmer of a doubt just how big of a bona fide gangster Bisping truly is.
UFC Fight Night 122: Bisping vs. Gastelum – Saturday, Nov. 25th
When: Main Card: 7 am ET || Early Prelims: 3:45 am ET
Where: Mercedes Benz Arena, Shanghai Arena
TV: Main Card: UFC Fight Pass || Under Card: UFC Fight Pass
Stream: UFC TV
Bisping and Gastelum are really the only two names on the card that stick out at you. Bisping enters this middleweight bout sporting a 30-8 professional record. As aforementioned, the last time The Count stepped into the cage it was to face longtime UFC legend Georges St. Pierre – who had taken a 4-year hiatus from the sport. Despite the hiatus, the UFC sports betting odds were still favoring Bisping over the champion. Once the fight started, it was clear that GSP was better than ever and Bisping looked visibly intimidated. As the fight dragged on it looked as if the champ’s cardio would lead him to an easy win, but that all changed when St. Pierre dropped Bisping and proceeded to finish the fight with a rear-naked choke.
Gastelum enters this Saturday’s event sporting a 13-3 professional MMA record. Gastelum’s three losses have come against Tyron Woodley, Neil Magny and Chris Weidman. The most recent of which was the loss to Weidman in a fight Gastelum should have never taken. Simply put, the size difference between the two was too much for Gastelum to overcome. We could see a similar result this weekend as sports betting websites are siding against Gastelum heavily.
