Main Card and Vegas Odds

Middleweight: Brendan Allen vs. Chris Curtis

FighterMoneyline Odds
Brendan Allen-350
Chris Curtis+285

Making just his second appearance in the UFC, Ohio’s Curtis, who is riding a six-fight win streak, will be facing his biggest challenge yet when he comes up against Allen.

Allen is 5-1 in his last six UFC fights, with his only loss coming against top 10 contender Sean Strickland.

It is fair to say, by looking at the opening odds, that the oddsmakers are fancying Allen to pick up the 18th win of his professional career.

Light Heavyweight: Jimmy Crute vs. Jamahal Hill

FighterMoneyline Odds
Jimmy Crute-220
Jamahal Hill+185

Set to return following an eight-month lay-off due to injury, Crute will be hoping to pick up the 13th win of his professional career with a win against Hill, who will come into Saturday’s bout off the back of a loss against Paul Craig.

Lightweight: Clay Guida vs. Leonardo Santos

FighterMoneyline Odds
Clay Guida-185
Leonardo Santos+160

This weekend will see veteran Clay Guida compete in his 57th professional fight.

The American fan-favorite, who is currently 1-4 in his last five UFC fights, will know that anything less than a victory against Brazilian Leonardo Santos could see his future in the promotion come under threat.

Lightweight: Brad Riddell vs. Rafael Fiziev

FighterMoneyline Odds
Brad Riddell-105
Rafael Fiziev-115

Looking to extend his four-fight unbeaten run in the UFC, lightweight Brad Riddell will be desperate to get the better of Rafael Fiziev.

However, with the highly-rated Kyrgyzstani looking to improve on his own four-fight hot streak, Saturday night’s co-main event has the potential to claim ‘Fight of the Night’.

Bantamweight: Rob Font vs. Jose Aldo

FighterMoneyline Odds
Rob Font-139
Jose Aldo-119

This weekend’s main event will see Font and Aldo, both of whom are top-five ranked bantamweights, collide for the chance to move closer to a shot at the champion.

Both fighters are impressing at 135 lb and that is echoed by the fact the oddsmakers can barely split them apart.

Saturday night’s winner is almost certain to be next in line to fight for the title – even though fans still don’t know if that will be against interim Petr Yan or outright champion Aljamain Sterling.
