Main Event: Thiago Santos Vs. Johnny Walker
Thiago Santos Vs. Johnny Walker
- Santos -155
- Walker +130
Online gambling sites have the odds for this matchup set fairly close with Santos listed as the slight favorite, but Johnny Walker’s odds should be taken seriously. The first thing to take note of is that Santos is currently on a three-fight losing streak. This could be a sign that age is finally catching up to him as he is 37 years old.
Walker, on the other hand, is much younger at 29-years old and since joining the UFC in 2018, he has gone 5-2. He holds a fight record of 18-5 with an impressive 15 fights coming by way of knockout. His last five wins have all been by knockout and have all come in the first round.
Even though Santos has had a great career and is ranked higher than Walker in the light heavyweight division, it is clear that Walker’s knockout power could carry him to a win.
Co-Main Event: Kevin Holland Vs. Kyle Daukaus
Kevin Holland Vs. Kyle Daukaus
- Holland -155
- Daukaus +130
This middleweight fight between Kevin Holland and Kyle Daukaus is leaning in favor of Holland. Holland holds the upper hand for a reason being that he is the 14th ranked middleweight on the roster while Daukaus is unranked. He also sits with a 21-7 record that includes 10 knockouts and 7 submissions.
Also, Daukaus has only fought in three fights in the UFC and has gone 1-2 all being decided by unanimous decision. Holland has a 9-4 record in the UFC and three of his losses have come by way of decision as well.
Based off of experience and the fact that he can win both standing up and on the ground, Holland should walk away with the win.
Fight Night is set to take place on Saturday, 7:00 p.m. EST on ESPN+.
