Henry Cejudo (10-2): -450 vs. Sergio Pettis (15-2): +320
The opener of the main card features Henry Cejudo against Sergio Pettis.
Cejudo enters this one scuffling a bit. He’s dropped back to back fights after starting his career at 10-0. There is some defense to Cejudo and his 2 straight losses as they’ve both gone to the judges, just against his favor.
This is going to be a match where he has to use his experience. He’s much more physical and will look to avoid going to ground here.
As for Pettis, he’s won 5 of his last 6 fights. With a lot of momentum on his side, he’ll look to really use his athletic abilities here. He’s much quicker than Cejudo and these odds are a bit perplexing to be honest.
The gap isn’t as far as the moneylines indicate.
With that in mind here, there is a lot of value on Pettis. He’s got the hot hand winning 5 of his last 6 and Cejudo really doesn’t have much confidence after his back to back losses.
After having to deal with the judges, he’ll try to end it himself, which could lead to a costly mistake.
MMA Betting Pick: Sergio Pettis +320
