UFC 217 Betting Multi

With a very special UFC event on this weekend, we thought we’d treat you to an extra multi this weekend, a five legger on the massive UFC 217 this Sunday.

Cody Garbrandt vs TJ Dillashaw
This batamnweight title fight has it all. High level competitors, a scandalous backstory that involves ‘gym treason’ and genuine bad blood between the combatants. Due to the excellent wrestling pedigrees on both sides, this one should play out on the feet. While TJ Dillashaw is incredibly skilled, Cody Garbrandt has the speed and power advantage which should see him take a back and forth decision if not a KO.

Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Rose Namajunas
Rose Namajunas is an exciting submission specialist who earned the title shot with a brutal beatdown of ‘the karate hottie’ Michelle Waterson. Three of her four UFC wins have come by submission and she has exceptional grappling instincts once the fight hits the floor. However a Hail Mary submission is probably her only path to victory here. Joanna Jedrzejczyk is a woodchipper on the feet and a level above any female striker in MMA. Namajunas is tough and this won’t be all one way traffic; but an eventual Jedrzejczyk victory looks a forgone conclusion.

Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson vs Jorge Masvidal
This is by far and away the most intriguing stylistic match up on the card. Wonderboy Thompson is the most accomplished Karetka to ever compete in the UFC and amassed a 57-0 record as a professional kickboxer. Jorge Masvisal is arguably the best technical boxer on the UFC roster. Masvidal will have the grappling edge and he will be the busier on the feet. But Wonderboy’s size, kicking arsenal and control of distance should see him take the victory.

James Vick vs Joe Duffy
This is an interesting fight between to lightweights on cusp of breaking into the division’s top 15. Ireland’s Joe Duffy owns a submission victory over a young Conor Mcgregor and has a 7-0 professional boxing record. He should be the better fighter here. The problem James Vick poses is length. At 6’3, Vick is one of the tallest fighters in the division. But if Duffy can avoid the knees and standing guillotines, I think he pepper Vick to the body and win a reasonably comfortable decision.

Mickey Gall vs Randy Brown
This is the first fight on the televised card and I think it represents the cards best betting spot. Mickey Gall has won all three of his UFC bouts by rear naked choke, but to say his competition was suspect is an understatement. He was the 1-0 fighter brought in to face off with CM punk, and his other UFC opponents have been only slightly more experienced than former WWE superstar. Randy Brown will be Gall’s first look at a legitimate UFC calibre fighter. Granted Gall can only beat what’s in front of him and he might show off against Brown that he deserves to be on the UFC roster; but getting Brown at plus money is too much to pass up.

Cody Garbrandt – $1.57
Joanna Jedrzejczuk – $1.18
Stephen Thompson – $1.59
Joseph Duffy – $1.45
Randy Brown – $2.00

Total Odds: $8.54
