Alexander Hernandez to Win by Decision (+300)
Kicking off the night’s action with a fantastic bout pitting two veterans of the sport against one another as Jim “A-10″ Miller takes on Alexander “The Great Ape” Hernandez.
As Jim Miller continues to draw closer to his final curtain call, back Hernandez to take the victory in this main card opener. Miller and Hernandez have showcased their stellar finishing ability in the past and with both men aware of the others finishing power and skill. With this in mind, look for each combatant to keep their distance, throwing calculated strikes in order to pull ahead on the judges scorecards.
With the slight size advantage in the favour of Hernandez as well as being nine-years younger than Miller, look for The Great Ape to land harder more damaging shots throughout the bout, while controlling the dance in any grappling situations.
Back Hernandez to decisively win the fight, using his strong striking style to keep the aging Miller at bay, cruising to a win by decision to open the main card.
William Knight to Win by KO/TKO/DQ (+150)
Sporting one of the most impressive physiques in the UFC, back the heavy-handed William “Knightmare” Knight to defeat Marcin Prachino by way of knockout in their upcoming bout.
In the midst of a two-fight skid, look for Knight to bounce back in a big way, throwing bombs at the Polish fighter, Prachino to get back into the win column. Knight has shown in the past that he is more than capable of putting his opponents to sleep in a hurry, winning 9 of his 11 pro bouts by KO/TKO.
Prachino is also a proven finisher in his own right, likely leading to this fight turning into a fast-paced slugfest as both competitors hunt for a finish. A major X-factor in this bout however will be whether or not Prachino’s chin will hold up when he’s touched by Knight.
Having been knocked out in the first round of his first three UFC matchups, look for Knight to exploit the suspect damage absorption of Prachino, leading to a quick finish in Knights favour.
Josh Parisian VS Jamal Pogues Over 2.5 Total Rounds (-140)
In a showdown of Dana White Contender Series graduates, look for Josh Parisian and Jamal Pogues to go to war in a bout that will reach the third and final round.
Both Parisian and Pogues have proven they have the technical skill and athleticism to go the distance, timing their offence well and conserving energy wisely. While both heavyweights can dish out plenty of damage thanks to their knockout power, look for both combatants to keep their distance from each other, searching for safe openings to land big blows in order to keep themselves out of danger.
All bets will be off in the third and final round as Parisian and Pogues may put the pedal to the metal, looking to keep the outcome of the fight out of the judges hands. Bet the Over on the total rounds in Parisian VS Pogues as both fighters look to continue carving out their place within the UFC heavyweight division.

Jordan Wright Moneyline (+230)
A rare double weight class change matchup, Zac “The Ripper” Pauga will drop down from heavyweight to take on former middleweight Jordan “The Beverley Hills Ninja” Wright in a light heavyweight tilt.
In a clash of styles, Pauga’s knockout power and rock solid grappling will be paired up against the high-flying style of Jordan Wright. Both fighters will look to impose their style over their opponents in this co-main event, but look for Wrights superior standup to be the deciding factor, knabbing him the underdog win on the moneyline.
Wright has had certainly hit a few bumps in the road as of late in his UFC career, dropping three-straight fights, but don’t let his recent struggles cloud your opinion on the Beverley Hills Ninja. Having provided fight fans with several electrifying finishes in his UFC career, look for Wright to utilize his fantastic striking skills against the wide-eyed Pauga in order to claim the victory.
Back Wright to claim the win in this highly-anticipated fight, as he looks to get back on track with an upset win against the favoured UFC newcomer.
Jessica Andrade to Win by KO/TKO/DQ (+130)
A main event of grand proportions, one of the best female fighters to ever grace the octagon will take on the future of the flyweight division as Jessica “Bate Estaca” Andrade faces Erin “Cold Blooded” Blanchfield to close out the night’s action. While Blanchfield as demonstrated she has unlimited potential and is on the fast track to the top of the divisions rankings, look for Andrade to put a screeching halt to her hype train, finishing her by KO, TKO, or DQ.
Coming off of a dominant win against former title challenger Lauren Murphy, Jessica Andrade has continued to prove she is an elite fighter in any of the UFC’s female divisons. With sensational striking and powerful wrestling, Andrade will be the first true test for the surging Blanchfield.
While Blanchfield has shown she is the real deal at only 23-years-old, Andrade is simply on another level. Look for Andrade to overwhelm the rising star with pressure, showing her the output of a championship fighter firsthand.
Back Andrade to close out UFC Vegas 69 in style, finishing Blanchfield by KO/TKO/DQ to capture her fourth consecutive win, providing her with enough momentum to potentially set up a rematch with flyweight Queen, Valentina Schevchenko.
