Marc-Andre Barriault VS Eryk Anders Under 2.5 Total Rounds (+140)
Set to kickoff the nights festivities with a bang, look for Gatineau, Quebec’s, Marc-Andre “Powerbar” Barriault and Eryk “Ya Boi” Anders to bring their fight to a close in Under 2.5 rounds. With both men carrying heavy-hands, this matchup may be wrapped up in a hurry.
Barriault is coming off of a masterful performance against Julian Maquez in his last outing, scoring the second round knockout win over the former Dana White Contender Series product. Anders is also coming off of an impressive stoppage victory by TKO over Kyle Daukas with a vicious ground-and-pound.
Look for these sensational middleweights to keep this fight out of the hands of the judges, starting the night off with a slugfest that will last Under 2.5 rounds.
Dan Ige to Win by Decision (+250)
In a matchup that is sure to be excitement personified, look for Dan “50K” Ige to continue his climb back toward the top of the Featherweight division, scoring a decision victory over Nate “The Train” Landwehr.
With Ige needing to defend his position in the top 15, look for him to outclass his opponent, using his masterful striking ability to prevent Landwehr from turning the fight into an outright brawl. It’s no secret that Landwehr loves to hunt for the finish, but he may grow tired as he chases Ige around the octagon like a dog with a cat.
Watch as Ige bides his time, landing crisp and clean blows to inflict damage over his opponents, draining his oxygen tank, and laying on the leather in order to score the decisive win. Back Ige to put an end to the hype of “The Train”, proving to the MMA world that he still has what it takes to become a contender in the future, scoring the win on the judges scorecards.
Mike Malott to Win by KO/TKO/DQ (+215)
The second Canadian featured on the main card of UFC 289, bank on Mike “Proper” Malott to show out in front of his home country fans, scoring a highlight reel knockout victory over Adam Fugitt.
Having won with ease in his first two UFC bouts, look for the highly-touted Canadian prospect to continue building momentum as he shuts his opponents lights out early on into this bout. While both combatants have scored first round wins via knockout under the UFC banner, watch as Malott feeds off the energy of the moment, landing stiff blows to render Fugitt incapacitated early on into the fight.
Hammer Malott to score the win by KO/TKO/DQ this evening, putting Canadian MMA back on the map, and continuing his rise in notoriety within the UFC.
Charles Oliveira to Win by Submission (+300)
With the winner of the co-main event of UFC 289 likely poised for a shot at the Lightweight strap, look for all-time great, Charles “Do Bronx” Oliveira to get back into the win column as he submits Beneil “Benny” Dariush in their upcoming tilt.
After having his historic title run put to an end by reigning champion Islam Makhachev, Oliveira is sure to be hungrier than ever to earn himself another world title opportunity. While Dariush is a talented fighter with a strong BJJ skillset, he is still no match for the prolific ground game of the UFC’s leader in submission victories.
Back the former-world champion to put himself firmly back into the Lightweight title picture with a statement win this evening, scoring the win by submission, and providing you with a juicy +300 win when you bet on the underdog Oliveira.
Amanda Nunes VS Irene Aldana Over 2.5 Rounds (-135)
Set to defend her crown for the first time since reclaiming it from Julianna Pena, Amanda Nunes once again compete under the lights of a PPV main event, facing off against title challenger, Irene Aldana. While Nunes is the sweltering favourite to take the win in this Bantamweight title clash, expect to see this bout go for Over 2.5 Rounds.
While Aldana is a skillful fighter in her own regard, this matchup is going to be dictated by the undisputed divisional GOAT. Nunes has score three of her last four wins by decision, making the Over on this five-round bout a no-brainer pick.
Aldana is sure to try and apply pressure on Nunes, trying to score a gritty finish victory similarly to that of former-champion Pena. Don’t expect to see Nunes fall into this trap, instead keeping her composure and landing big shots repeatedly as if she was playing with her food.
While this matchup may be one-sided, Aldana is no slouch. Having never been finished in the UFC, expect to see Aldana keep her head up, avoiding damaging shots like the plague as Nunes begins to increase her temp as the fight continues.
Aldana has great size and athleticism that will allow her to go toe-to-toe with Nunes and leave exchanges relatively unhurt.
Look for the lioness to pounce on her latest prey, taking her time in the process as the main event of UFC 289 goes Over 2.5 rounds, capping your evening off with a win.
