After last week’s drama filled UFC223 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York we head to Glendale, Arizona for the next scheduled event for the promotion.
Like UFC223, this fight card will also be headlined by a lightweight bout pitting number five ranked Dustin Poirier with number six Justin Gaethje.
With an impressive victory over TKO victory over Anthony Pettis in his last bout, Poirier heads into this clash in strong form within the division after previously campaigning as a featherweight.
Former World Series of Fighting lightweight champion Gaethje only debuted in the UFC last year but his first up victory over Michael Johnson catapulted him to contender status within the stacked division. However, his defeat in UFC 218 to former champion Eddie Alvarez halted his charge to climb further up the rankings.
Poirier heads into the bout a $1.65 favourite with Gaethje available at $2.25 in a difficult to pick main event.
The main support bout sees fan favourite Carlos Condit take on Alex Oliveira at welterweight. Both fighters are coming off defeats in their previous fights and Oliveira enters the contest a clear $1.50 favourite with Condit at $2.60.
With a jam packed 14 fight card there are plenty to fights in store on Sunday morning / afternoon Australian time (Saturday evening/night US time) to keep you entertained which means great opportunities for making a multi that suits you.
The best value we can see on the card comes up in the middleweight bout between Krzysztof Jotko and Brad Tavares. Jotko will have over five centimetres of reach on his Hawaiian opponent and with a record of 19 wins from his 22 bouts, we like the $2.15 on offer for the Poland native to secure a victory that will add some worth to our multi.
Here is the multi that we’ve picked out in what should be three exciting fights:
Krzysztof Jotko to win (v Brad Tavares) @ $2.15
Alex Oliveira to win (v Carlos Condit) @ $1.50
Dustin Poirier to win (v Justin Gaethje) @ $1.65
3 leg multi @ $5.32
