It’s fight night and so we are back again with another gambling preview of the fights, the odds, and my own personal breakdown of where the value lies. Fights with debuting fighters get less in-depth analysis because stats aren’t available and same goes for fighters with only a couple of UFC bouts.
Also, just to clarify because I’ve gotten some questions about this: the number after the odds on each fighter is the percentage probability of victory that those odds imply. That means Carlos Condit at -130 says he will win that fight 56.52% of the time. If you think he wins it more than that, then you should bet it because there is inherent value in the line.

Doubly as always, I’m trying to provide the most thorough guide I can for those who want to legally bet or who just enjoy following along. If you are a person who chooses to gamble, only do so legally, responsibly, and at your own risk.
