Cameron Saaiman to Win by KO/TKO/DQ (+450)

Hot off the heels of his TKO victory over Terrence Mitchell at UFC 290, look for 22-year-old phenom, Cameron “MSP” Saaiman to score back-to-back victories by KO/TKO/DQ.

Facing a tough opponent in Christian “CeeRod” Rodriguez who has never been finished in his pro career, expect to see Saaiman utilize his superior standup ability, landing damaging blows repeatedly as he hunts to shut his opponents lights out.

While Rodriguez has largely relied on his stellar grappling skills throughout his career, Saaiman is more than equipped to stuff or counter his takedown attempts, instead taking advantage of the situation and doling out significant strikes in response.

Back Saaiman to kickoff the main card of UFC Vegas 81 with the upset victory, besting Rodriguez inside the distance as he scores his third win in the UFC by KO/TKO/DQ, remaining unbeaten in his professional career.

Edgar Chairez to Win by Submission (+180)

After their previous bout was halted due to a controversial stoppage, expect to see Edgar “Puro Chicali” Chairez to leave no doubt in this upcoming clash as he submits Daniel “Miojo” Lacerda in their upcoming rematch.

Having seemingly locked in a fight ending submission in their last matchup, Chairez looked terrific against Lacerda. Chairez was in control of the bout throughout it’s brief duration, outlanding Lacerda 12-4 in significant strikes.

Back Chairez to once again apply ample pressure against his opponent, wearing him down as he finds an opening to lock in a fight-ending submission, ending all speculation and controversy as he submits Lacerda for a juicy prop bet win.

Michel Pereira VS Andre Petroski Under 2.5 Total Rounds (-135)

In what could be the most entertaining bout scheduled throughout tonight’s event, hammer the Under on the upcoming battle between Michel “Demolidor” Pereira VS Andre Petroski as they put an end to their bout within the first 2.5 rounds.

With Pereira’s unique striking ability matching up with the relentless pressure and power of Petroski, tonight’s showdown could bring out the best in both combatants. With both fighters looking to continue surging toward the Top-15 of the UFC welterweight division, an impressive showing this evening could catapult their stock to new heights.

Both fighters possess deep skillsets, able to put an end to a fight with their dangerous striking ability, as well as on the ground with lethal submissions.

Hammer the Under on Pereira VS Petroski as this battle comes to a close in Under 2.5 rounds, netting you a quick payday on this thrilling bout.

Martinez VS Yanez to Go the Distance (+130)

While both combatants entering into tonight’s tilt have proven themselves as dangerous finishers inside the octagon, look for tonight’s bout between Jonathan “Dragon” Martinez VS Adrian Yanez to instead end up in the hands of the judges as they go the distance.

In a clash between two special strikers, both Martinez and Yanez possess impressive hand-speed and are able to string together flashy combinations in an instant.

With both fighters looking to vault their way into the Top-10 of the UFC Bantamweight rankings, don’t expect to see either combatant take any unnecessary risks in this high-stakes matchup. Instead of their usual brand of high-flying action, expect a clean-and-crisp game plan from both fighters as they avoid taking damage as they compete for the victory in tonight’s duel.

Bank on Martinez VS Yanez to go the distance and watch your bankroll skyrocket as this bout comes down to the judges scorecards in order to declare a winner.

Jennifer Maia to Win by Decision (-125)

After an impressive outing against Casey O’Neill in her last trip to the octagon, look for Jennifer Maia to make it three wins in a row as she defeats Viviane “Vivi” Araujo by decision in tonight’s Co-Main Event.

With major improvements having been made to her standup ability, Maia has continued to get better with age. Having been a pro for 14 years, the experience and poise of Maia is undeniable.

Taking on a slumping Araujo that has dropped back-to-back bouts to stiff competition, look for Maia to outclass and outwork her opponent, landing cleanly throughout the bout as she cruises to a win on the judges scorecards.

Bet on Maia to secure the win by decision against Araujo in tonight’s Co-Main Event, netting you an easy payoff on this UFC Vegas 81 prop bet.

Sodiq Yusuff to Win by Submission (+550)

Ready to cement himself as a legitimate threat within the UFC featherweight division, back Sodiq “Super” Yusuff to continue his ascent up the rankings with an impressive finish victory against division mainstay, Edson “Junior” Barboza.

Yusuff enters tonight’s Main Event sporting an impressive 6-1 record in the UFC, having string together an impressive list of finishes in the process. Possessing explosive athleticism and world-class skill, Yusuff is primed to overwhelm the aging veteran Barboza, scoring the win inside the distance by way of submission.

With Barboza primarily a kickboxing practitioner, look for Yusuff to avoid the highlight reel combinations of his opponent, instead bringing the fight to the canvas and controlling the bout with his superior grappling.

Bank on Yusuff to make good use of the allotted five-rounds, bringing Barboza to the ground, neutralizing his dangerous strikes, and locking in a fight ending submission as he announces himself as a primetime player at 145lbs.
