UFC Predictions & UFC Picks (All MMA Picks)
UFC 135 Predictions: Jones vs. Jackson Betting Picks
by Scott Johnson - 9/20/2011
On Sept. 24, UFC 135 will mark an important moment in both the light heavyweight division and the career of Jon Jones. Chuck Liddell successfully defended his 205 pound title four times. Since Liddell’s run came to an end there have been six different title holders, including Jones and his UFC 135 opponent Rampage Jackson. In fact, Rampage was the man that began this title carousel when he rendered Liddell unconscious in UFC 71.
UFC 134 Odds and Betting Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 8/25/2011
The UFC returns to Brazil for just the second time ever when UFC 134 hits HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday, Aug. 27. Given the number and strength of Brazilian fighters in the UFC it’s really amazing that they have only been there once before — and that was way back in 1998.
UFC 134 Odds: Silva vs. Okami Betting Predictions
by Scott Johnson - 8/22/2011
The UFC 134 top fight is a rematch from back in 2006. In that matchup Anderson Silva was clearly the superior striker while Yushin Okami attempted a couple of unsuccessful shots. Eventually Yushin completed a takedown, which was quickly followed by an illegal up kick that ended the fight.
UFC 133 Predictions and Betting Picks
by T.O. Whenham - 8/4/2011
If you believe in such things, then you would be certain that UFC 133 is cursed. Jon Jones was supposed to defend his light heavyweight title against Rashad Evans, but he got hurt and had to back out. Phil Davis took his place, but injured himself in mid-July and had to be replaced on short notice by Tito Ortiz. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira was supposed to face Rich Franklin, but the Brazilian was hurt and the fight was scrapped. Jose Aldo was rumored to be on the card, but he got hurt as well. Alessio Sakara tore his ACL so he was unable to fight Jorge Rivera, and Constantinos Philippou was moved up from the undercard to be his replacement.
UFC 133 Picks: Evans vs. Ortiz Predictions
by Scott Johnson - 8/3/2011
This weekend’s UFC 133 card features a main event (Rashad Evans vs. Tito Ortiz) that looks pretty lopsided on paper. However, as we always do here at Doc’s Sports, we will try and see if there is any value here for UFC picks. As always, we will have a full slate of UFC 133 predictions on our homepage on Friday. In the meantime, let’s take a closer look at the main event.
UFC 132 Odds and Betting Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 7/1/2011
It’s time for another UFC event. UFC 132 enters the octagon on Saturday, July 2 at MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas. The most notable feature of this card is that it features the first-ever defense of the UFC Bantamweight championship -- and a heck of a fight is expected. At 126 to 135 pounds these are the smallest fighters in the UFC, but certainly not the least entertaining.
UFC 131 Odds and Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 6/9/2011
The city’s beloved Canucks are in the midst of a brutal Stanley Cup final, and tensions are high after a rough trip to Boston. Still, the show must go on, and the rest of the world that doesn’t really care about hockey will be focused on what is shaping up to be a solid UFC 131 card. The main event is a heavyweight challenge that was supposed to feature Brock Lesnar, but is actually better without him. Here’s a look at the main UFC 131 card:
UFC 130 Odds and Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 5/26/2011
The UFC returns to the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday, May 28, for UFC 130: Rampage vs. Hamill. The card was supposed to feature a more interesting main event -- the third meeting between Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard, and their second for the UFC Lightweight title -- but injuries to both fighters has delayed that event. This new main event was supposed to be different as well. Jackson was originally facing Thiago Silva, but Silva was injured. Rashad Evans was the rumored replacement before Hamill stepped in.
UFC 129 Odds and Betting Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 4/29/2011
After years of lobbying by the UFC, MMA is now legal in the province of Ontario. So this weekend the UFC invades Canada’s biggest city for the first time on Saturday night when they bring UFC 129 to Toronto. Not only is it their first time there, but it will be in front of the largest crowd ever for one of their events — it takes place in the sold out home of the Blue Jays, the Rogers Centre. That’s a hideous barn of a building, but with 55,000 screaming fans in it there should be lots of life and atmosphere.
UFC Fight Night 24 Odds and Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 3/25/2011
I normally don’t do previews of the UFC Fight Night cards, but there are a few reasons I am choosing to here -- the card, which will be contested in Seattle at the sadly vacant former home of the Sonics, is particularly interesting, there isn’t another regular UFC event for more than a month, and last weekend’s event went so well for us that I want to keep riding the wave. With all that said, here’s how the main card breaks down for this Saturday’s event (all odds are from Sports Interaction):
UFC 128 Odds and Betting Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 3/18/2011
For most sports bettors this weekend is all about the NCAA Tournament. The world is still turning outside of that bubble of joy, though -- and the fact that there is another UFC event this weekend is proof of that. UFC 128 comes to us from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday night, March 19.
UFC 127 Odds With Predictions and Betting Picks
by T.O. Whenham - 2/25/2011
The UFC was a huge hit the last time it went to Sydney, Australia - for UFC 110 last year - so they are heading back for UFC 127. It makes my head hurt trying to figure out when it is actually happening in Australia, but the important thing is that it will be available on pay-per-view in the U.S. and Canada starting at 10 pm ET on Saturday, February 26. The five fights on the main card are solid, including an intriguing main event, and a couple of Aussies.
UFC 126 Odds With Predictions and Betting Picks
by T.O. Whenham - 2/4/2011
Some UFC cards are much better than others. UFC 126, which takes place the night before the Super Bowl at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, is one of the better ones we have seen lately. All five fights on the main card give us a reason to be excited, and two in particular have massive potential. Here’s a look at how the main card plays out with my UFC 126 predictions and betting picks (all odds are from Sports Interaction): At the end of this article I will offer my recommended bets for a $500 bankroll.
UFC 125 Picks and Betting Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 12/30/2010
The UFC is wasting no time putting their stamp on the New Year -- their first event of the year takes place on New Year’s Day. UFC 125 takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Jan. 1, 2011. The event is notable mostly because of how light the average weight of the fighters is -- there are no heavyweights on the whole card, the only title fight features lightweights, and the preliminary card features the first two featherweight fights held under the UFC banner.
UFC 124 Picks and Betting Predictions St. Pierre vs. Koscheck
by T.O. Whenham - 12/10/2010
UFC returns to Montreal - an obviously successful location for them - for the fourth time since UFC 83 in April of 2008 on Saturday, Dec.11 for UFC 124. Interestingly, UFC 83 was where heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez made his UFC debut. This is the second time that Georges St. Pierre -- perhaps the area’s most popular athlete right now - headlines one of those cards. At UFC 83 he got his revenge on Matt Serra in convincing fashion.
UFC 123 Betting Odds and Predictions With Recommended Wagers
by T.O. Whenham - 11/19/2010
You certainly can’t complain about a shortage of UFC events lately. Just a week after UFC 122 came to us on free TV from Germany, we get UFC 123 on pay-per-view from the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit. The card last weekend was a bit short on big-name excitement, but the same can’t be said here - though there is no title fight on the card, all four guys in the final two fights of the night have held a title at least once.
UFC 122 Odds - Marquardt vs. Okami and Full Fight Card Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 11/11/2010
The UFC must not like Germans very much. If they really did like them then they would bring a much better card to Oberhausen, Germany, for the second UFC card in Deutschland. Hosting any UFC event is probably better than not having one, but the organization is putting forth the card with the least amount of star power they possibly could.
UFC 121 Odds and Picks - Lesnar vs, Velasquez
by T.O. Whenham - 10/23/2010
Simply put, this is the best main event the UFC has given us in several events. The undercard isn’t perfect, but the main event - Brock Lesnar defending his title against Cain Velasquez - has the potential to be one for the ages. UFC 121 takes place on Saturday, October 23 in Anaheim, and will be available on pay-per-view. Here’s how the main card breaks down (all UFC 121 odds are from Bodog):
UFC 120 Odds with Betting Picks and Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 10/16/2010
The latest offering from the UFC - UFC 120 - comes to us from O2 Arena in London on Saturday. This is the fourth time that the UFC has been in that arena, and like some times before it this event will be shown on tape delay on Spike TV instead of on pay-per-view. The tape delay creates an extra profit opportunity for you if you have stupid friends. If you don’t then you’ll have to make your money through betting on the fights. Here’s how I see them turning out with some UFC 120 odds and predictions:
MMA Odds: UFC 119 Betting Picks and Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 9/24/2010
The UFC heads to a somewhat unlikely spot this week - Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. The fine folks of Indiana are regularly treated to great football, but this card isn’t up to quite the same world-class caliber. The main event is a bit of a head-scratcher - there have certainly been stronger, more interesting, and more relevant matches recently. The rest of the main card in more interesting, but certainly not flashy. They aren’t going to break any pay-per-view records with this one.
