With UFC Fight Night 132 right around the corner, we thought we’d preview a few of the fights for your betting pleasure. Read below as a few are highlighted!

Petr Yan (-475) vs. Teruto Ishihara (+380)

The 25-year-old Russian fighter Petr Yan has been a force to be reckoned with as his career as gotten going, winning eight of his first nine fights. His inspirations in the fighting world include Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson, and he shows the type of aggression you love to see. He is undefeated since 2016.

His opponent, 26-year-old Japanese fighter Teruto Ishihara, has gone 11-5-2 to begin his career. This will be his first fight since February 10, where he suffered a loss against Jose Quinonez. He is a successful offensive fighter, landing 46{b82e5e56a9812bad28ea5aefced1964b6e85658d6da818d3ac352b08d0d307d2} of his strikes. Asked if he had any fighting heroes, he said he is only interested in himself.

PREDICTION: Petr Yan (-475) has a better record and seems to be the more impressive fighter. He comes in off a win, which gives him momentum.

Shane Young (-165) vs. Rolando Dy (+145)

24-year-old Shane Young has gone 11-4 to start his career, and is a fighter known for his tenacity and work ethic. He is fighting for the first time since November 18, when he lost against Alexander Volkanovski. He had won his previous five fights prior to that one, as he now looks to bounce back.

On the other side we have 26-year-old Rolando Dy, who has been inconsistent, entering with a record of 9-6-1. He snapped a two-match losing streak his last time out when he defeated Wuljii Buren on November 25. He struggles with his attack, landing just 38{b82e5e56a9812bad28ea5aefced1964b6e85658d6da818d3ac352b08d0d307d2} of his strikes. He is also just 1-5 when attempting takedowns.

PREDICTION: Shane Young (-165) is more aggressive, and has a better track record. He will be tough for Dy to defeat, and with this win, Young will improve to 12-4.

Jake Matthews (-550) vs. Shinsho Anzai (+425)

23-year-old Jake Matthews is already preparing for his seventeenth fight. He enters this one with a 13-3 record, having won each of his last two bouts, which follow a prior two-match losing streak. This will be his first fight since he defeated Li Jingliang on February 10. He credits his dad for a lot of his success in the UFC.

His opponent is 32-year-old Shinsho Anzai, who has started his career with a 10-2 record. He comes in having won his last two fights, his most recent a victory against Luke Jumeau on September 22. His favorite striking technique is the low-kick, which is something that Matthews is going to have to watch out for.

Prediction: Jake Matthews (-450) is a lot younger and brings more energy than Shinsho Anzai. He will be going at it from the start and improve his career record to 14-3 with this victory.
