Free UFC Fight Night 195 Pick: Aspen Ladd -160 vs Norma Dumont +140 (Bet Now!)
Aspen Ladd has only shown two weaknesses in her MMA career: Germaine De Randamie’s punches and the weight scale. She’s had real trouble making weight and is taking this fight on short notice.
The chances of her not being able to make weight here are strong. How much that matters, especially from a betting perspective, is unclear.
She is an incredibly talented fighter and has beaten some top names in the sport. I’m not worried about her up against Norma Dumont, not that she isn’t a talented fighter herself.
MMA Betting Prediction: Norma Dumont only has one blemish on her record as well, a loss to Megan Anderson. So she’s only lost to top-tier competition. This is a big fight for both. For Ladd, the bigger fight might be on the weight-scale, however. Still, I expect her to win this fight and I think the moneyline odds here are underestimating her a bit as well.
Free UFC Fight Night 195 Pick: Andrei Arlovski -160 vs Carlos Filipe +140 (Bet Now!)
This will be Andre Arlovski’s 52nd professional fight. To say he’s getting to the later stages of his career would be a bit of an understatement. The 42-year-old has traded wins and losses at this point in his career and more than anything now he is sort of a gatekeeper for the upper part of the UFC heavyweight division.
His opponent, Carlos Filipe, is a 26-year-old with only one blemish on his record. He dropped his first UFC fight by a majority decision in July 2020. He still hasn’t managed to finish any of his opponents in the UFC and took his last two fights to the judges and one narrow split decisions.
Whether he is a heavyweight who can move up in the rankings or not is unclear.
MMA Prediction: This will be a significant test for Filipe. I think there might be more hiding in him than we’ve seen in the UFC thus far. Although he hasn’t managed to knock any of his opponent out just yet, there is power in his hands.
I think it’s entirely possible that he knocks Arlovski out and finally shows what he can do in a UFC cage here.
Free UFC Fight Night 195 Pick: Erick Gonzalez vs Jim Miller (Bet Now!)
The crafty Jim Miller gets back in the cage at UFC Fight Night 195, he’ll take on Eric Gonzalez. Miller is 38 now and has 48 professional flights under his belt. He’s dropped three of his last four with all of the losses coming via decision.
He still knows how to submit guys, there’s no question there. Gonzalez will be making his UFC debut and they are giving him a significant test in his first fight.
MMA Prediction: I think Miller probably finds a way to submit Gonzalez or win a decision just because he’s the craftier fighter but I I think it’ll be the kind of fight that Gonzalez learns from and becomes a better fighter because of. Still, I’m taking Miller on this one.
Free UFC Fight Night 195 Pick: Mayra Bueno Silva +185 vs Manon Fiorot -220 (Bet Now!)
Manon Fiorot is one to watch out for and I think she’ll probably make easy work of her opponent here.
The 31-year-old from Nice, France finished her first two opponents in the UFC and while her opponent looked impressive on Dana White’s contender series back in 2018, she’s only managed two wins in her first four UFC fights.
MMA Prediction: Silva be looking to go for a submission here so a lot of this comes down to whether or not she’ll be able to take the flight where she wants it to be. If this goes to the ground, she’ll have the edge, but I don’t think it’s going to go there.
Fiorot is the biggest favourite on the main card for a reason.
