UFC Fight Night: Vettori vs. Holland Full Card Betting Guide

What a better way to return to the UFC after a one-week hiatus than with a 14-fight card at a reasonable time for the majority of viewers? UFC on ABC 2 pits middleweight contenders Marvin Vettori and Kevin Holland in the main event on Saturday, April 10, at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The card is littered with some very exciting fights and some talented young prospects, making finding value even more interesting.

Here’s your comprehensive betting guide to UFC Fight Night: Vettori vs. Holland, scheduled to start 11:30 a.m. ET Saturday. The main card starts at 3 p.m. ET on ABC.

Best Bets

Jack Shore (-173) — The odds continue to drift in the Welsh fighter’s favor, and for good reason. How do you picture Hunter Azure winning this fight? It’s doubtful he’ll be able to outgrapple Jack Shore, who is supremely dangerous on the canvas with eight submission wins to his name. And I’m not seeing Hunter Azure being able to win two of three rounds on the feet without gassing late, leaving him open to a finish by shore.

Ignacio Bahamondes (-191) — Consider yourself lucky if you got Bahamondes at his opening -120 line. There’s still value here at much steeper odds against John Makdessi, who is returning from knee surgery and just started training again in February. I would leave it off my parlays, but I don’t mind laying the juice.

Julian Marquez (-191) — Marquez’s opponent, Sam Alvey, has not won a fight since June 2018 when he won a split decision over Gian Villante. Marquez returned from a nearly three-year layoff two months ago and looked good in a win against Maki Pitolo, before blowing his shot with Miley Cyrus. Ride with the younger, more talented fighter and eat a little bit of that juice.

Pop and Popcorn Fights

Impa Kasanganay (-295) vs. Sasha Palatnikov (+234) — There are way too many question marks to consider betting this fight. How will Impa Kasanganay look at welterweight? How will the new camp at Sanford MMA change Kasanganay’s game? How much has Sasha Palatnikov improved since his knockout of Louis Cosce? Just enjoy this morning curtain-jerker for what it’s worth.

Nina Nunes (-140) vs. Mackenzie Dern (+116) — The fighter formerly known as Nina Ansaroff is a great opponent for Mackenzie Dern, who faces her toughest test to date. It should be a thriller with the constant anticipation of a Dern submission anytime the fight gets anywhere close to the mat.

Sodiq Yussuf (-146) vs. Arnold Allen (+120) — There’s a lot to like about Sodiq Yussuf and a potential victory, but I’m not in love with the value here. Arnold Allen is a more than competent UFC fighter and has never lost in the promotion (7-0). It’s probably more of a coin flip than the odds suggest; either way it’s off my card.

Underdogs to Consider

Jordan Griffin (+115) — He’s not the biggest of underdogs against Luis Saldana, but there always seems to be value in the crafty veteran against the exciting newcomer. Jordan Griffin has a good opportunity to win this fight and has fought a higher level of competition leading up to this one.

Intriguing Props

Da Un Jung vs. William Knight U2.5 rounds (+123) — It definitely feels like there’s a finish coming in this one. Both fighters are hittable and Da Un Jung’s takedown defense means this fight should stay on the feet, where William Knight possesses a ton of power.

Joe Solecki wins by decision (+127) — The heavy favorite against Jim Miller, who is making his record 38th walk to the Octagon this week, Solecki has said in an interview with Fight Night Picks’ John Hyon Ko that he expects this to be a 15-minute fight that allows him to show all of his skills.

Mike Perry vs. Daniel Rodriguez O2.5 rounds (-135) — Both fighters have good chins, and while it should turn into a thrilling fire fight, it has all the makings of a three-rounder.

Parlay of the Night

Jack Shore (-173), Norma Dumont (-253), Mateusz Gamrot (-244), Marvin Vettori (-338) — +302
