Gilbert Burns (21-5-0) won his last fight by submitting Neil Magny in January, however lost to Khamzat Chimaev by decision a year ago.

Jorge Masvidal (35-16-0) aims to return to victory after a year away from the Octagon and three consecutive losses.

Burns is the favourite against Masvidal due to Masvidal’s long absence and lower ranking. The odds significantly favour Burns, making it difficult to bet against him. If Burns takes the fight to the ground, it could end as quickly as his previous fight.

However, Masvidal could potentially upset Burns if he returns determined and aggressively attacks.

Bantamweight Bout
+156 at Bovada UFC Betting Odds -196.08 at Bovada
19-6-0 MMA Records 21-5-0

Rob Font (19-6-0) from Puerto Rico will face Adrian Yanez (16-3-0) from the United States in the bantamweight division.

Both of these welterweights are heavy hitters, with Font having won 19 fights – including eight by TKO or KO – and Yanez having 16 wins, including 10 by TKO/KO.

Font is taller and has a longer reach, but bookies consider him a slight underdog at $2.56 odds. With how close this fight will be and with both fighter never being knocked out this will come down to who has the better crowd control and can win the round.

The longer reach will be the difference in this one. Take Rob Font by decision for $3.50 with Bovada.

23-9-0 MMA Records 29-6-0

Kevin “Trailblazer” Holland (23-9-0) will face Santiago Ponzinibbio (29-6-0), aka the “Argentine Dagger”, in the night’s second main card fight. Holland aims to end his two losing streak, while Ponzinibbio hopes to build on his win against Alex Morono.

Holland should have an advantage as he is 3.5 inches taller with an eight-inch reach.

However, both focus on striking. Holland has won 23 fights, including 12 by KO or TKO. Ponzinibbio has won 29 fights, including 18 by KO or TKO.

This will be another close bout; however, the fighting resume of Holland will make a difference. Take the favourite to win by KO/TKO.

6-0-0 MMA Records 8-1-0

Raul Rosas Jr. (6-0-0) will face Christian Rodriguez (8-1-0) in the opening main card fight.

The 18-year-old Rosas, aka “El Nino Problema”, is undefeated, winning six fights—four by submission, one by KO/TKO, and one by decision. Rodriguez is a striker and grappler, winning eight fights—three by KO/TKO and three by submission.

Both fighters have won five first-round fights. Taking the fight to the ground could improve Rosas’ chances; however, Rodriguez’s age and experience may give him an edge.

The history of quick wins suggests they will both likely aim for a short fight. The ground game from the youngster should be the difference if he can takedown Rodriguez.
