UFC Betting – Dillashaw vs. Sandhagen
TJ Dillashaw is returning to the Octagon after being suspended for a failed drug test that revealed the former champ was taking EPO. Dillashaw owned up to taking EPO and served his two year suspension. He is now back and is determined to make his way back to the top and get his belt back.
Standing in his way is the talented Cory Sandhagen who believes that Dillashaw does not pose any threat to him either on the feet or on the ground. The bookmakers side with Sandhagen as Bet365 has him as the favorite with odds of 1.53 while Dillashaw is the underdog with odds of 2.62.
We have no idea how TJ Dillashaw is going to perform after a 2 year suspension and without any help from EPO. Dillashaw is a talented fighter but we have seen in the past that a number of fighters have failed to perform as well as before after getting suspended for steroids.
We are going to put our money on Sandhagen to win this fight.
UFC Betting – Ladd vs. Chiasson
UFC bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes is running out of prospects. The fight between Aspen Ladd and Macy Chiasson gives both fighter the opportunity to impress and push their case for a title shot after Nunes fights Julianna Pena on Aug 08.
Aspen Ladd has a 9-1 record going into this fight and Chiasson has an 8-1 record. There is not a lot of difference between the two fighters apart from the fact that Chiasson is the taller fighter and has a much better reach.
Ladd hasn’t fought since Dec 2019 when she finished Yana Kunitskaya while Chiasson’s last fight was on 20 March, 2021 when she defeated Marion Reneau by decision. While Chiasson has a good win-loss record, the fight against Ladd is going to be her toughest challenge till date.
The bookmakers have Ladd as the betting favorite with odds of 1.53 while Chiasson is the underdog with odds of 2.62. We are going to put our money on Ladd to win as we believe she can not only defeat Chiasson but also give Amanda Nunes are real test should they end up fighting for the belt.
UFC Betting – Maverick vs. Barber
One fight that is slipping under the radar is a fight between two of the hottest prospects in the women’s flyweight division. Miranda Maverick will take on Macy Barber in what could end up being a potential fight of the night as both fighters are young and like to throw down.
Barber goes in as the underdog with odds of 2.10 while Maverick is the betting favorite with odds of 1.72.
Some of the other exciting fights to watch out for include Kyler Phillips vs. Raulian Paiva and Mickey Gall vs. Jordan Williams.
