Holly Holm vs Ketlen Vieira

This might not seem the most explosive or exciting main event of the year but last week’s fight of the night between Chookagian and Ribas proved that we cannot look past any fight.

Holly Holm has been around the UFC for over 7 years having an exciting 12-fight career that has seen her hold UFC gold.

Holm is famous for her head kick knockout of one of the greatest to ever do it, Ronda Rousey.

She is a former boxer who has successfully transitioned her skills to the Octagon by adding good footwork and leg kicks to her arsenal.

Holm has been impressive in wins against top contenders like Irene Aldana and Megan Anderson lately, but it is UFC title aspirates that keep her motivated at the age of 40.

This week she collides with another young contender in rank 5 Ketlen Vieira to make a strong case for a title shot.

Ketlen is a top prospect in this stacked Women's Bantamweight division.

She is a well-rounded fighter with strong boxing and black belt credentials in BJJ & Judo.

Ketlen looked impressive in her recent main-event win against former champion Miesha Tate which has led many to buy stock in this Brazilian prospect.

This week she runs into another former champion and a victory will solidify her chances for a shot at UFC gold.

This fight will be very intriguing given the clash of styles at display but it will be fun to see the spectacle unfold across 5 potential rounds.

Best Bets

Our first best bet this week is a plus money parlay of 2 confident selections in Jonathan Martinez to win and Chidi Njokuani vs Dusko Todorovic to not go the distance.

We think Martinez is a top prospect having won 6 of his last 8 fights only losing to two fellow upcoming prospects.

Whereas his opponent Vince Morales is 3-3 in his last 6, we believe Martinez is the younger and more durable fighter which will be enough for him to get another win this weekend.

For our second leg, both opponents have a high finish rate, and we like the odds for this one to end inside the distance.

72% of Chidi's and 85% of Dusko’s fights have ended inside the distance so we think there are a lot of finishing abilities on both sides and this one will result inside 15 minutes.

Our next bet comes on the explosive co-main event between Santiago Ponzinibbio and Michel Pereira.

Pereira has been on an impressive 4 fight tear, but we think there is a lot of experience on the Santiago side.

Pereira does tend to showcase low fight IQ and he did struggle against the boxing of Andre Fialho in his last fight, so we think if Santiago can pressure with his boxing and display smart game planning, he will outsmart his counterpart across the distance.

Our last bet comes on our Women's Bantamweight main event between Holly Holm vs Ketlen Vieira.

There is no denying that Holly Holm is the better fighter but given her age and lay-offs we cannot wrap our heads around the money line.

At a near @3.0 price, we think the line might be a bit off, and considering all variables, we believe Vieira is the younger and harder-hitting fighter between the two so that’s our pick this weekend.

Selection: Jonathan Martinez + No, Chidi Njokuani vs Dusko Todororovic (Win market, Will the Fight Go The Distance) @2.07

Santiago Ponzinibbio by Decision (Win method) @3.10

Ketlen Vieira (Win market) @2.95

Parlay all Selections @18.96
