UFC Sydney Fight Night 121 – Best Bets
As the excitement of the UFC comes to our shores, Sydney is set to host UFC Fight Night 121. We take a look at the fights that offer the best value.
Fabricio Werdum v Marcin Tybura
This fight was soured when home favourite Mark Hunt was pulled due to health concerns. In steps Marcin Tybura. The up and coming polish fighter is phenomenal on the ground and could cause problems for the leaner, meaner Werdum.
Tybura is hot on a 3-fight win streak; however, Werdum has eyes for Stipe Miocic and a title rematch.
With that said, it’s hard to ignore the gulf in class between these two fighters.
Werdum should dispatch Tybura within 3 rounds if he stands and trades.
Best Bet: Werdum KO
Bec Rawlings v Jessica-Rose Clark
Joanne Calderwood’s late exclusion has given seasoned Aussie Jessica-Rose Clark into the fray against Bec Rawlings.
Rawlings has seemingly been on the decline for some time now and could be staring down the barrel o her third straight loss.
Clark has the reach and the experience. On top of that, underdogs have seemingly won aplenty in the women’s divisions.
Best Bet: Jessica-Rose Clark
Jake Matthews v Bojan Velickovic
Jake Matthews is an exciting native up and comer. He’s limped into the Welterweight division after a pair of difficult losses.
Velickovic is a giant unit. He’s a big guy but he’s also an all-rounder. Surprisingly the iron chinned Serbian doesn’t have much knockout power.
Matthews needs to approach this fight with intelligence at the forefront of the game plan. He’s a talented kick boxer and can see Velickovic falling victim of Matthews establishes leg kicks early.
Best Bet: Matthews by Submission or Points
