The UFC continues to schedule continuous MMA action every weekend and MMA fans are grateful for the non-stop action. The UFC will host another Fight Night card at the UFC Apex Center in Las Vegas on April 10. UFC President Dana White has already announced that in April, the UFC will look to get back to hosting fights in packed stadium around the country.
The April 10 fight card will be headlined by a battle of Europe’s top middleweight prospects. UK’s Darren Till will take on Italy’s Marvin Vettori and the winner could very well be in line for a title shot against champ Israel Adesanya.
There are a number of exciting fights scheduled on this card and we take a look at three of them including the Main Event. See the betting odds and what our experts have to say about who they think will win.
If you would like to bet on MMA fights, you can do so at any of the following sportsbooks listed below.
Darren Till vs. Marvin Vettori
Marvin Vettori is a vastly improved fighter who believes that he is the best middleweight in Europe and he wants to beat Till on April 10 to prove that. Vettori will want to use his wrestling against Till to see if he can notch up a win. Bookmakers have Vettori as the betting favorite with odds of 1.58 while Till is the underdog with odds of 2.40.
If this turns into a pure striking match, Till is going to have the advantage, especially as the fight progresses. If Vettori can get the take down early on, he has a good chance of securing a win. One big factor to consider here is what Darren Till’s weight cut is going to look like. Till has had trouble with his weight cuts and if he has a bad one, he is going to feel it when he takes on Vettori.
We are going to go with the bookmakers on this one and pick Vettori as we believe he is a better all-round MMA fighter than Till.
Nina Ansaroff vs. Mackenzie Dern
This fight is unofficially being promoted as the fight between MMA mothers as Ansaroff hasn’t fought in awhile as she took time off to start a family. Dern has done well for herself after giving birth to her daughter and is looking more impressive with each fight.
Bet365 has both women tied at 1.90 bunt we don’t believe that it is so close. Ansaroff may have better striking, given the fact that she is the partner of UFC women’s bantamweight and featherweight champ Amanda Nunes and practices with her. However, Dern is one of the most accomplished BJJ specialists in women’s MMA.
We back Mackenzie Dern to win this one.
Mike Perry vs. Daniel Rodriguez
This fight is going to be a banger as both fighters like to trade punches. Perry goes in as the underdog with odds of 2.50 while Rodriguez has odds of 1.57. Mike Perry is under a lot of pressure since he missed weight and lost his last fight. There were calls for Perry to be cut from the UFC after his last fight and Perry is very keen to make weight and get a win under his belt.
Rodriguez has won three of his last four fights, the last fight being a loss by decision. We are going to bet on Perry to win this one as he has changed his camp and is working with a nutritionist to keep his weight in check.
