UFC Fight Night 181 Preliminary Card UFC Betting Preview

After a month of action overseas on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi, the UFC returns home for UFC Fight Night 181 this Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada. Here’s a look at the preliminary card leading into the night’s top fights including the main event fight Uriah Hall vs Anderson Silva .

Alexander Hernandez vs Chris Gruetzemacher

Latest Odds & Fight Info
UFC Betting Odds Alexander Hernandez -500 at BetOnline | Chris Gruetzemacher +360 at BetOnline
UFC Weight Division Lightweight: Minimum 145 lb (65.8 kg; 10.4 st) | Maximum 155 lb (70.3 kg; 11.1 st)

Alexander Hernandez (11-3-0) was a nice prospect with a 10-1 professional record including a 2-0 start in the UFC. But since suffering a knockout loss to Donald Cerrone in January of last year, Hernandez has looked far less aggressive in his ugly decision win against Francisco Trinaldo and a knockout loss to Drew Dober. It’s difficult to say where his career goes from here, but he has such a clear edge in athleticism against Chris Gruetzemacher (14-3-0) that even an underwhelming effort will likely be enough to get the job done.

Adrian Yanez vs. Victor Rodriguez

UFC Betting Odds Adrian Yanez -526.32 at BetOnline | Victor Rodriguez +375 at BetOnline
UFC Weight Division Bantamweight: Minimum 125 lb (56.7 kg; 8.9 st) | Maximum 135 lb (61.2 kg; 9.6 st)

Both Adrian Yanaz (11-3-0) and Victor Rodriguez (4-2-0) make their UFC debuts on Saturday on the heels of four-fight winning streaks. Yanez’s win against Brady Huang in Dana White’s Contender Series in August came via TKO in just 39 seconds. Rodriguez’s inexperience and the sharp uptick in competition on Saturday should result in another quick win for Yanez.

Sean Strickland vs. Jack Marshman

Latest Odds & Fight Info
UFC Betting Odds Sean Strickland -400 at BetOnline | Jack Marshman +300 at BetOnline
UFC Weight Division Middleweight: Minimum 170 lb (77.1 kg; 12.1 st) | Maximum 185 lb (83.9 kg; 13.2 st)

Sean Strickland (20-3) is a talented counter-striker that should match up well against Jack Marshman (23-9-0) and his attacking style. We haven’t seen Strickland in the octagon since October of 2018; assuming he hasn’t lost a significant step, the 29-year-old should have no trouble picking up a win against Marshman, who has lost three of his last four fights.

Jason Witt vs. Cole Williams

Latest Odds & Fight Info
UFC Betting Odds Jason Witt -156.25 at BetOnline | Cole Williams +127 at BetOnline
UFC Weight Division Welterweight: Minimum 155 lb (70.3 kg; 11.1 st) | Maximum 170 lb (77.1 kg; 12.1 st)

Jason Witt (17-6-0) was 9-1 over his previous 10 fights before losing his UFC debut to Takashi Sato in June. Cole Williams (11-2-0) was 9-0 over his previous night fights before losing his UFC debut to Claudio Silva in August of 2019. Both of these men took this fight on short notice and one of them will earn their first UFC win. Witt’s aggression and power make him the favorite in this bout, but Williams has a chance to weather the storm and pull off the upset here.

Dustin Jacoby vs. Justin Ledet

Latest Odds & Fight Info
UFC Betting Odds Dustin Jacoby -416.67 at BetOnline | Justin Ledet +310 at BetOnline
UFC Weight Division Light Heavyweight: Minimum 185 lb (83.9 kg; 13.2 st) | 205 lb (93.0 kg; 14.6 st)

Dustin Jacoby (12-5-0) has won his last two fights including a win in Dana White’s Contender Series in August. Justin Ledet (9-3-0) is three years removed from his perfect 9-0 record with three straight losses. Jacoby should earn his first UFC win in this one.

Miles Johns vs. Kevin Natividad

Latest Odds & Fight Info
UFC Betting Odds Miles Johns -158.73 at BetOnline | Kevin Natividad +128 at BetOnline
UFC Weight Division Bantamweight: Minimum 125 lb (56.7 kg; 8.9 st) | Maximum 135 lb (61.2 kg; 9.6 st)

The first fight of the night is between two interesting prospects in Miles Johns (10-1-0) and Kevin Natvidad (9-1-0). Natvidad could pull off the upset if he is able to keep this fight standing, but look for Johns to earn a key takedown or two to do enough to earn the win.
