Does that mean we'll finally see Benavidez at his rightful place? On top of 125?

Cutelaba vs. Ankalaev
Magomed Ankalaev, DEC
Cutelaba will, as always, come out hard and immediately gas going into to second round. If he doesn't win in the first round, easy money for Ankalaev.

Davis vs. Chikadze
Giga Chikadze, DEC
Such a fun match up. Davis might be content to strike with Giga, which I believe will result in him getting out-pointed. Should be great nonetheless.

Tybura vs. Spivak
Sergey Spivak, DEC
The state of the UFC heavyweight division when these guys hold a place in their rankings.

Are you surprised about Spencer vs Fairn Anthillss? Those two are literally half of all the Featherweights in the Company and the other half are fighting on that card.

Anderson vs. Dumont
Megan Anderson, TKO, R2
Women's 145 in the UFC is a dead division. The UFC is trying to keep it alive to milk Nunes for all she is worth. This pair of 145 lb fights on this card is geared toward trying to make a couple fighters in the division look good. It starts with this fight. Dumont is a 135er who I don't think is on the level of Anderson. I think Anderson wins and finishes the fight. Betting women's MMA is a very dangerous undertaking. I do see value on Anderson at her current price. I will be putting in an Anderson/Spencer parlay for this slate. This is an example of take what the books are willing to offer. The UFC's attempt at keeping this division alive will add to the bankroll a tad and move on.

See everything in my prediction for Anderson. This seems like a made to order matchup for Spencer as the UFC tries to do CPR on the women's 145 lb. division. I will be pairing Spencer and Anderson in a 2 pick parlay to make a little coin. Pretty straightforward plan. Profit and move on.

Benavidez vs. Figueiredo
Joseph Benavidez, TKO, R4
Looks like the flyweight division will stick around a little longer. This will be a nice scrap for a belt. Worth a watch on a Saturday evening on the west coast. I will be playing Benavidez and do see some value at his current price. He really has only lost to Cruz and DJ in his career. The Pettis fight who knows that was such a toss up and since then Benavidez has looked impressive. This is one last chance to get a strap. While Team Alpha Male's record in title fights is something to be very scared of I don't see Joseph blowing this chance. Judging could always be a factor at 125 as they can be very hard to score. However I will wager on this fight because I see this one not needing the judges. Late stoppage for Benavidez in what will be a hard earned win.
