Set to kickoff the main card with an action-packed brawl between two deadly finishers as Josh “Bushido” Quinlan faces off against Trey “The Truth” Waters. Both combatants enter this bout coming off of impressive finishes, leaving no doubt that this matchup will not go past the second round.
Quinlan and Waters both claimed victory by knockout in their last bouts, only further adding to their already stellar resumes. With both men looking to make a name for themselves in the UFC, look for both fighters to swing for the fences early on into this showdown.
Bet the Under on the total rounds in the opening bout of the night between Quinlan and Waters as they look to make a statement at the expense of their opponent, scoring you an easy win on the first bout of the main card.

Entering as the underdog to win this bout, pick up a major payday when you back Waldo “Salsa Boy” Cortes-Acosta to secure the win by decision against Marcos “Pezao” Rogerio de Lima. While we aren’t accustomed to heavyweights going the distance, Cortes-Acosta is a terrific point fighter that uses his high fight IQ to secure wins on the judges scorecards regularly.
Cortes-Acosta proved this in both of his UFC bouts, picking up the win by decision against Chase Sherman and Jared Vanderaa. Facing his toughest opponent to date in de Lima, look for WAC to maintain distance, using his size advantage to keep his opponent from advancing, landing clean blows as he throws stiff jabs throughout the three five-minute rounds.
Bet on Cortes-Acosta to pick up the win by decision and treat yourself to a sizeable +450 payout with this UFC Vegas 72 prop bet.
Julian Erosa VS Fernando Padilla to Go the Distance (+165)
In a matchup between a veteran of the sport and a perky newcomer, look for the matchup between Julian Erosa “Juicy J and Fernando Padilla to go the distance.
While both fighters have showcased their finishing talent in the past both by knockout as well as submission, look for these well-rounded athletes to put on a show for fight fans as they go all out for three rounds. With Padilla making his UFC debut, look for him to start a tad slower than usual, taking a longer feeling out process against his respected opponent.
Erosa will also be hesitant to engage right away as Padilla has showcased he can end his oppositions night in a matter of seconds. Look for these two to put on an entertaining bout in which neither men is able to stop the other. Bet this matchup to go the distance and score yourself another plus-money win as a result.
Cody Brundage to Win by KO/TKO/DQ (+350)
A matchup between two heavy handed mixed martial artists, look for Cody Brundage to pick up the underdog win over Rodolfo “The Black Belt Hunter” Vieira by KO/TKO/DQ. Pitting two of the most entertaining middleweights against each other, look for the knockout power and strength of Brundage to become the deciding factor against the BJJ specialist Vieira.
We have seen wrestling conquer Jiu-Jitsu several times head-to-head in recent memory, and with Brundage sporting a solid wrestling background, look for him to control top position during the bout, raining down hard shots to win the fight.
On the feet Brundage is also the more impressive striker and will have a great shot at shutting the lights out of Vieira if he connects flush. Back Brundage to pull off the upset win by knockout and pick up a hefty +350 win for your troubles.
Caio Borralho to Win by Decision (+275)
A rising star in the middleweight division, look for Caio “The Natural” Borralho to continue his UFC undefeated streak by defeating Michael “Hussar” Oleksiejczuk in the co-main event of UFC Vegas 72.
Facing his toughest test since joining the UFC, look for Borralho to overwhelm the Polish fighter, Oleksiejczuk as he makes use of his superior strength and hand speed throughout the fight. Able to be the quicker man to land, Borralho is set to lead the dance during this highly-anticipated middleweight clash, picking up round-by-round wins with his crisp striking ability.
Back Borralho to continue carving through the division as he continues his path toward the top 15, a spot he may find himself on the verge of joining after picking up his fourth-consecutive win by decision.
Song Yadong to Win By KO/TKO/DQ (+180)
He may have come up short against top contender Cory Sandhagen in his last bout, look for #8 Song “Kung Fu Kid” Yadong to bounce back emphatically against #10 Ricky Simon. With both fighters looking to use the other as a stepping stone to elevate their standing in the bantamweight division, look for the world-class striking of Song to be the deciding factor in this matchup as he scores the knockout victory over Simon.
Song has shown he can stand-and-bang with the best of his division, having landed highlight reel knockouts over several respected fighters. Simon is an equally dangerous fighter with an explosive finishing ability, but he is much more wild and frantic in his attempts to score the win in his fights.
Bank on the crisp, well-polished striking of Song to quickly wear down Simon, slowly setting up for a massive blow to wrap up this evening’s main event. Back Song to score the win by KO/TKO/DQ over Simon and cap off your UFC Vegas 72 betting with a win.
