Nunes vs Aldana Odds & Predictions

In the star-studded spectacle of the evening, Amanda Nunes  defends her bantamweight crown against veteran challenger Irene Aldana.

Amanda Nunes, hailed as the greatest female fighter in mixed martial arts history, enters the octagon as a force of nature, armed with knockout power and insanely accurate striking. Her impressive list of prey includes names like Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm, and Cris Cyborg.

Her challenger, Irene Aldana, brings a tantalizing blend of boxing prowess and fantastic footwork to the canvas. Aldana’s striking repertoire, bolstered by a never-say-die attitude, has seen her rise against top contenders like Yana Santos and Maicy Chiasson.

17 Career Finishes 11

Nunes raw power and outstanding accuracy have made her perhaps the most dominant female fighter of all-time. On the other side of the cage, Aldana is a gritty veteran who boasts impressive power of her own. The Mexican born fighter certainly won’t be afraid to mix it up with Nunes.

Ultimately, Nunes has the edge in this one. She’s just been too consistently good for too long for you to put your money on anyone else. Moreover, given Nunes impressive finishing rate (only 4 of her 17 UFC bouts have gone the distance), a bet on Nunes to finish the fight makes too much sense.

Nunes vs Aldana Picks: Amanda Nunes by KO/TKO (+100), risk: 1 unit; fight to go the Distance No (-250), risk: 1 unit

Oliveira vs Dariush Odds & Predictions

The co-main event stage sees a lightweight duel between  Charles Oliveira and rising contender Beneil Dariush.

Charles Oliveira has proven himself to be a lethal grappler, boasting the most submission victories in UFC history. His recent conquests of Justin Gaethje and Dustin Poirier underscore how dangerous he is on the ground.

Meanwhile, Beneil Dariush has been leaving a trail of impressive performances with eight straight UFC wins. His dogged victories over Tony Ferguson and Mateusz Gamrot highlight his momentum in the lightweight division.

While both these men are capable grapplers, Oliveira will have a chip on his shoulder after losing the lightweight belt in his previous outing. This should be a battle as Dariush has the prowess to counter Oliveira’s wrestling. However, the former champ will be pushing forward at all times, and should have the ability to take away the younger fighter’s best tools and pull out the victory.

Oliveira vs Dariush Pick: Charles Oliveira to win (+120), risk: 1 unit
