Said Nurmagomedov VS Muin Gafurov Under 2.5 Rounds (-105)
Kicking off the main card action with a scrap between two skilled fighters, look for the opening bout between Said Nurmagomedov VS Muin “Tajik” Gafurov to come to a conclusion in Under 2.5 rounds.
Both fighters enter this main card matchup having established themselves as proven finishers, with each combatant having won the majority of their bouts by finish rather than on the judges scorecards.
With newcomer Gafurov looking to make waves in his UFC debut as he takes on a veteran of the octagon in Nurmagomedov, look for him to push the pace of the bout, forcing his opponent to match his urgency as this one comes to a close in a hurry.
Bet the Under on Nurmagomedov VS Gafurov as this opening bout finishes in Under 2.5 rounds, scoring you a quick payday to start off your UFC 294 bets.
Ikram Aliskerov to Win by KO/TKO/DQ (+120)
Hot off the heels of his highlight reel knockout victory in his UFC debut back in May, look for #11 middleweight Ikram Aliskerov to continue building momentum as he makes it back-to-back wins by KO/TKO/DQ.
Rightfully slotted as the heavy betting favourite in this main card matchup, Aliskerov will have every advantage as he squares off with a slumping Warlley Alves. With Alves currently riding a two-fight losing skid, watch as Aliskerov makes quick work of his opponent, landing damaging blows in a hurry as he shuts his opponents lights out.
Bank on the surging contender Aliskerov to continue his ascent up the UFC middleweight rankings, establishing himself as a legitimate threat at 185lbs, and earning you a +120 victory on your UFC 294 bet slip.
Magomed Ankalaev VS Johnny Walker Over 1.5 Rounds (-166)
A matchup that will have major title implications within the light heavyweight division, look for the upcoming fight between #2 Magomed Ankalaev VS #7 Johnny Walker to go for Over 1.5 total rounds at UFC 294.
While both fighters have showcased their phenomenal finishing power in the past, expect this scrap to extend past the first round, and into the later stages of the second as they look to earn themselves a world title opportunity.
With both Ankalaev and Walker having had their previous bouts go the distance, watch as both combatants avoid any costly mistakes as they take their time feeling out their dangerous opponents game plan in the opening round, before opening up their offence in the second half of the fight.
Bet the Over on Ankalaev VS Walker and watch as your account balance skyrockets as the fight reaches the 2:30 mark in the second round.
Kamaru Usman to Win by Decisin (+550)
Coming in on short notice and ready to squash the momentum of rising star Khamzat “Borz” Chimaev, look for former-welterweight champion Kamaru “Nigerian Nightmare” Usman to score the decision victory in tonight’s co-main event.
While Chimaev has looked like one of the top title prospects the UFC has seen in years, expect to see Usman remind the MMA world who he is in this matchup. After stringing together one of the most dominant title runs in UFC history, Usman is more than equipped to match the output of Chimaev.
Sporting the best takedown defence-percentage in UFC history (97.3%), there’s no fighter better prepared to stifle the grappling attack of Chimaev than Usman.
After having his chin tested by Gilbert Burns, a fighter that Usman was able to finish inside of three rounds, Chimaev has shown some limitations to his game when facing elite competition.
Bank on the massive underdog Usman to halt the hype train of Chimaev in its tracks, besting the undefeated fighter at every aspect of the fight en route to a decision victory, netting you a sizeable +550 payday in the process.
Alexander Volkanovski to Win by KO/TKO/DQ (+550)
After coming up short in their first meeting back in February of this year, look for featherweight champion Alexander “The Great” Volkanovski to settle the score with Islam Makhachev as he usurps him for the lightweight title by KO/TKO/DQ.
While their first fight was extremely competitive, it was Volkanovski that came closest to finishing the bout. With his takedown defence strong enough to fend off the Dagestani wrestling of Makhachev, expect to see Volk throw caution to the wind as he chases the knockout against his rival.
Even as the reigning pound-for-pound best MMA fighter in the world, Volkanovski has continued to evolve his game and continues to get better each trip he makes to the octagon.
Back Volkanovski to cap off UFC 294 with an exclamation point, finishing Makhachev by KO/TKO/DQ, and scoring you a +550 boost to your bankroll as we see just the fifth-ever double champ in UFC history crowned.
