UFC Fight Night Tampa Odds and Predictions
Joanna Jedrzejczyk (-370) vs. Michelle Waterson (+310)
I am a huge Joanna fan and it’s been hard the last few fights. With two losses to Rose Namajunas, a win over Tecia Torres and another loss to Valentina Schevchenko (At 125lbs) it has been a tough road back to the top. That all changes this coming Saturday night when the Boogie-Woman gets back on track to reclaiming the Women’s Straw-weight Title. Unfortunately for Michelle Waterson her goal of becoming “Mom Champ” falls short. For all that don’t know Michelle is working towards becoming the first mother to become a UFC Champion.
Kron Gracie (-170) vs. Cub Swanson (+150)
Not only does he have one of the most unique nicknames in MMA, Ice-cream Kron Gracie is as close to MMA Royalty as it gets. Kron is the son of famed Rickson Gracie of Gracie Family Jiu Jitsu. Kron’s striking leaves a lot to be desired, The one thing he’s shown is that he has enough ability to manage space to eventually get a takedown and ultimately a submission as he has a 100% finish rate via submission (5-0). If Cub can create space and control the octagon he has a chance. I wouldn’t bet against this fight not ending in anything but Gracie winning via Submission.
Other Noteable Fights
Mackenzie Dern (-145) vs. Amanda Ribas (+125) Dern is just over four months removed from having her first child.
Luis Pena (-165) vs. Matt Frevola (+145) Pena is looking better than ever coming out of his camp at AKA in California.
Eryk Anders (-150) vs. Gerald Meerschaert (+130) Anders is evolving every fight and his return to middleweight is bound to produce fireworks.
The Bet for UFC Fight Night Tampa
I plan on a three fight parlay Joanna, Gracie, & Pena. This seems to be the route to take other than taking poor odds and betting favorites straight up, parlay three of them as to score a better payout. Or you can take all five favorites on this card straight up.
