UFC Fight Night 150 Odds & Analysis

Ronaldo Souza -185 vs. Jack Hermansson +145

Analysis: “Souza has been in the hunt for a title fight for a long time and this fight would apparently open the door for the opportunity of gaining a belt. However, Souza’s original opponent, Yoel Romero, and then Paulo Costa both bowed out of the fight which is when Jack Hermansson stepped in.

While Souza is the apparent favorite, the fight could prove to be disastrous to Jacare’s plans because Hermansson has everything to gain and no pressure whatsoever in winning the bout. The expectation weighs heavy on Souza’s shoulders to defeat Hermansson convincingly enough that he’ll get a shot at the title.

Expect Souza to take the fight to the ground where he’s most comfortable. Hermansson has a better shot at winning if the fight stays on the feet, but although Souza losing is a real possibility, it’s likely it’ll be a submission finish.”

Ben Saunders +150 vs. Takuma Sato -190

Analysis: “Saunders made a good run when he returned to the Octagon, winning five of six bouts. But, four out of his five most recent fights have been stopped for a loss. Sato, on the other hand, has won five straight.

Saunders has been knocked out far too many times in my book. That has to weigh heavily on a fighter’s mind. And, against an opponent like Sato, it has to be a concern for Saunder’s camp. Sato is going to close this out quickly.”

Andrei Arlovski +120 vs. Augusto Sakai -150

Analysis: “Arlovski is going to a rough patch, winning just two of his last ten fights. Sakai has been gaining a reputation as a knockout artist winning all but two of his pro victories by way of KO. This fight has the makings of turning into a slugfest where Arlovski can end up like minced meat. Sakai is relentless, and he’ll grab Arlovski as his punching bag.

The fight might go to two rounds, but a quick knockout could be the best that could happen to Arlovski.”

Carla Esparza -110 vs. Virna Jandiroba -120

Analysis: “Carla Esparza jumped right back into the saddle after losing her title to Joanna Jedrzejczyk and won three of her next four including Cynthia Calvillo’s first ever loss. Jandiroba is stepping in for the injured Livinha Souza on three weeks’ notice which could be a factor. This might not be an exciting bout, but if it goes the distance, I like Esparza’s chances of getting the decision.”
