How To Bet UFC
When you’re betting on UFC, there are a few options that you’ll want to look at. DSI gives you the option to bet on the fight winner, which is just a straight up bet. You’ll see odds like -120 or +250. What that means is if it’s a minus sign, like -120, that’s the amount you bet to win $100. If it’s a plus sign, that’s the amount you win if you bet $100.
You’ll also see different prop bets on happenings in the fight. For example, you can bet an over-under if you think the fight will be long or short, and you can also bet on how the fight will end (knockout, submission, decision and so on).
Dennis Bermudez vs. Chan Sung Jung – Featherweight
Bermudez (16-5) has won two straight after a unanimous decision over Rony Jason in August, and he likes to grind you down. Jung (14-4) lost to then (and now current, again) champion Jose Aldo before his hiatus, and he can also grapple, but he is also incredibly powerful with his striking. Even though his last two losses came by KO or TKO, Jung should not be afraid of Bermudez’s striking power. He’s the better bet in this showdown.
Alexa Grasso vs. Felice Herrig – Women’s Strawweight
Grasso (9-0) defeated Heather Jo Clark by unanimous decision in her UFC debut in November, while Herrig (11-6) has split her last four fights, although she submitted Kailin Curran in July. Grasso is a great striker, but Herrig has yet to lose via stoppage and she will be tough to knock out. However, Grasso should be able to out-point her with her technique. Look for this fight to go the distance but for Grasso to edge her out in the judge’s eyes.
Ovince Saint Prince vs. Jan Blachowicz – Light Heavyweight
Saint Prince (19-9) was knocked out by Jimi Manuwa in October following his loss to Jon Jones for the interim 205-pound belt, and Blachowicz (19-6) is coming off a unanimous-decision loss to Alexander Gustafsson in September. Both men have lost three of their last four, so this is a huge fight on both sides. They are both well-rounded also, but the slight edge goes to Saint Prince, who is a little more explosive. Saint Prince is our pick in what should be a close bout.
Pick: Saint Prince
Evan Dunham vs Abel Trujillo – Lightweight
Dunham (18-6) has won four in a row, all by unanimous decision, including over Rick Glenn in September. He enters this fight with plenty of momentum. Trujillo (15-6, 1 NC) has won three straight (although his loss to Gleison Tibau was overturned due to Tibau failing a drug test), and he will look to test Dunham with his explosiveness. Dunham is very well-rounded and he is a tough customer who sticks around long enough to find a way to win, which he will again in this fight.
