A win in the main event would have title shot implications for Dos Anjos or Ferguson. The rest of the card is stuffed with some good fights, including the debut of undefeated Alexa Grasso. Other fights that have a possible fight of the night written on them are Lamas vs. Oliveira and Dariush vs. Magomedov.

UFC Fight Night Bitcoin Betting Picks

Heather Jo Clark vs. Alexa Grasso

Heather Jo was part of the first The Ultimate Fighter season featuring women. After winning her UFC debut vs. Bec Rawlings, she did not fight again until nearly a year and a half later at UFC Fight Night 87 against the now-title contender Karolina Kowalkiewicz.

In that fight, she showed improved striking, but still looks square and not very fluid at times. Heather Jo has a decent ground game, but she does not shine in any department. She has just enough skills in every area to get by but not dominate. Now she is facing the new UFC Mexican hype machine Alexa Grasso.

Twenty-three-year-old Grasso is undefeated at 8-0 and will be fighting in Mexico. This is the perfect chance for the UFC to debut a new Mexican fighter. She has won four times by decision and four times by knockout.

I think Grasso will just be too much for Heather Jo Clark and could get a knockout in the distance. There is also the slight chance that Grasso folds under pressure, but I doubt it. I like the fight does not go the distance prop that pays 2.65, either Grasso gets the finish or folds under the pressure. Heather Jo Clark´s way to victory is via finish not via decision.

If you think this event looks good, you should have a look at the rest of November. For the first time, the UFC will come to New York City after years of lobbying with the city government. There are also events in Belfast, San Paulo and Australia, where Rockhold faces Souza after losing the belt to Bisping.

UFC 202 Betting Picks

Connor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz

McGregor was training to fight RDA at lightweight 155, but Rafael dos Anjos had to drop out due to injury. With eight days notice, Diaz took the fight. After taking some punches and getting cut, Diaz made it through round one. Round two was all Diaz, and he ended up winning the fight via submission in the second round.

What is different this time around? These two were set to fight at UFC 200, but due to McGregor having disagreements with the UFC regarding media dates and promotion, the bout was removed from the card and rescheduled for UFC 202.

McGregor has reportedly spent close to $300,000 USD on this training camp. He has brought in people to train BJJ and emulate Diaz.

While everyone is talking about McGregor, many have forgotten that Diaz did not have a full camp last time — while Mc Gregor did. The fight was at a higher weight class than McGregor was training for, but the fact remains. This time, Diaz will have a full camp behind him.

McGregor will be dangerous in rounds one and two, but I expect Diaz to be sharper than the last fight. This fight being five rounds puts Diaz at an advantage, since he has some of the best cardio in MMA.

According to the odds, Diaz is the underdog, even though he won the last fight. I am going with Diaz to win currently at 1.95-2.00 at most sportsbooks.

Neil Magny vs. Lorenz Larkin

The featured fight of the early prelims includes Magny, who is coming off a performance of the night victory over Hector Lumbard. Magny will face off against Lorenz Larkin, who is coming off a win of his own against Masvidal.

Magny, who is currently a slight favorite, uses his wrestling and volume of strikes to win fights. He has good wrestling and takedowns, but his chin is questionable, and his striking — although improved — still is not that great.

Larkin is known for his technical striking. He has clean and crisp striking and does not waste much movement when he strikes. He also has good takedown defense. Since he does not rely on wild haymakers and looping punches, Larkin does not open himself up to being taken down as much as fighters that have a more brawling style. The main thing against Larkin is that he is sometimes not active enough — evidenced in his split decision loss to Tomolov.

I can see Larkin stuffing takedowns and geting some good strikes in against Magny. If Magny can not get this fight to the ground, it is going to be a long night for him. I’m going with Larkin as the underdog as my pick. You can get Larkin at 2.10-2.20
