Jack Della Maddalena to Win by KO/TKO/DQ (-200)
Kicking off the nights main card action, sparks are set to fly in a welterweight tilt between Jack Della Maddalena (12-2) and Danny “Hot Chocolate” Roberts (18-6). Both of these men like to let their hands fly when they step into the octagon so don’t expect this fight to go to the judges scorecards.
A heavy betting favourite and for good reason, Della Maddalena to win by KO/TKO/DQ is a fantastic bet to make to start your UFC Fight Night bets off on the right foot. Currently 2-0 in the UFC with both wins coming from first-round knockouts, Della Maddalena appears to be the next top fighter to emerge from Australia. With a spectacular array of striking skills, Della Maddalena has a perfect blend of power and speed.
Facing an MMA journeyman that has struggled to maintain success in the UFC, look for Della Maddalena to make quick work of Roberts, finishing him via Knockout within the 15-minute confine.
Andre Fialho Moneyline (-105)
Coming off a brutal loss at suffered at the hands of Jake Matthews, Andre Fialho (16-5) had his momentum squashed after being dominated by the Australian fighter. Don’t let one performance fool you however, Fialho is oozing with potential.
Prior to the Matthews loss, Fialho was riding a two fight win streak, both victories coming from first round knockouts. With knockout power at his disposal, look for Fialho to get back into the win column against the “King of Kung Fu” Muslim Salikhov (18-3).
A veteran of the fight game, Salikhov has demonstrated he has a fantastic ability inside the octagon, with spectacular finishes under his belt, he is just as dangerous as his opponent. While Salikhov may have the advantage in experience, Fialho is the fresher and more explosive fighter in this matchup.
Look for Fialho to overwhelm Salikhov with his power, forcing the technical striker into an all out brawl, an area that Fialho feels extremely comfortable in. Back the slight underdog Fialho to defeat Salikhov as he rights the ship and progresses forward in his UFC career, capturing his third win in five fights this year.
Waldo Cortes-Acosta to Win by Decision (+350)
Making his UFC debut against a proven veteran in the heavyweight division, Waldo “Salsa Boy” Cortes-Acosta (8-0) appears ready to make a name for himself at the highest level. The pride of the Dominican Republic, Cortes-Acosta brings not just knockout power, but technical savvy when he steps inside the octagon.
Going toe-to-toe with proven fighter Chase “The Vanilla Gorilla” Sherman, look for Cortes-Acosta to outclass his opponent and keep his undefeated streak in tact. Cortes-Acosta is unlike many heavyweight fighters in the UFC, not just reliant on swinging for the fences, he is able to use his technical ability to his advantage draining his opponents and cruising to dominant victories on the scorecards.
While he’s no stranger to dealing out knockout blows, look for Cortes-Acosta to play this one safe. Staying out of range of the long reach of Sherman, and capitalizing on the opportunities given to him over the course of the bout, Cortes-Acosta will not make any unnecessary movements. Back the Salsa Boy to sauce it up inside the cage and dance his way to victory by decision.
Kennedy Nzechukwu to Win by KO/TKO/DQ (+120)
In a showdown between two of the UFCs most intimidating fighters, Ion “The Hulk” Cutelaba (16-8-1) faces off against Kennedy “African Savage” Nzechekwu (10-3) in a battle that surely won’t finish with both men left standing.
Both fighters have showcased in the past that when they step foot into the octagon they aren’t there to touch their opponents up, they’re there to take their heads clean off. In a bout that is set to see both fighters look for the quick finish, back Nzechekwu to capture the knockout victory over Cutelaba.
While Cutelaba may have the edge in experience, Nzechekwu is the more explosive fighter. In his last few bouts Cutelaba has made several costly mistakes due to poor fight IQ, leading to him being finished via submission in the first round in back-to-back bouts. He may not have to worry about the ground game of Nzechekwu, but if he gets caught with even a single clean blow, that could shut the lights out in a hurry.
Nzechekwu is coming off an impressive performance, securing a win over Karl Roberson by knockout. Look for the African Savage to add another head to his collection, taking down Cutelaba by knockout, earning his second straight finish.
