How To Bet UFC Fight Night 99

Fighter Gegard Mousasi

Thursday, November 17, 2016 8:06 PM GMT

The UFC will touch down in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Saturday night when top 10 middleweight contenders Gegard Mousasi and Uriah Hall headline the event. Let’s check out the UFC odds on this and the others matches on the main card.

Artem Lobov vs Teruto Ishihara

Division: Featherweight (145 pounds)

Artem Lobov was a finalist in The Ultimate Fighter 22 when he was a decision by Ryan Hall. He then lost his next fight in the same fashion to Alex White but rebounded in his last match with a unanimous decision over Chris Avila. His opponent, Teruto Ishihara, blazed a similar a path in Japan's version of TUF. The difference between the two is Ishihara's inordinate ability to put his opponents to sleep in which he has done just that in eight out of 10 victories. Lobov is a game but Ishihara is good. How good remains to be seen but certainly good enough to get past Lobov. Include Teruto Ishihara -250 at BetDSI in your betting picks.

Alexander Volkov vs Timothy Johnson

Division: Heavyweight (265 pound maximum)

After climbing the ladder in Bellator, Alexander Volkov became the heavyweight champ in that organization. However, a pair of split decision losses to Tony Johnson and Cheick Kongo saw the former champ on the unemployment line until M-1 picked him up and Volkov delivered with a pair of wins. He will now make his UFC debut against a more multi-faceted fighter in Timothy Johnson. Despite Johnson's advantage on the ground as a two-time All-American D-2 wrestler and four MMA submissions to his credit, the 6'7” Volkov has a four-inch height and three-inch reach advantage which will serve him well in this heavyweight showdown. Look for the bigger and more powerful Volkov to prevail in a fight that will most likely remain standing. Alexander Volkov +117 at Bookmaker is the play.

Stevie Ray vs Ross Pearson

Division: Lightweight (155 pounds)

I give the veteran Ross Pearson a slight advantage against Stevie Ray only because Ray has had just three weeks to prepare as a replacement for the injured James Krause. Furthermore, Ross Pearson has been one of the most active fighters in the organization with this, his fifth fight, in 2016. Pearson has a grinding, pursuing a style that will challenge the younger Ray and is also equipped with more experience against better caliber opposition. Pearson is also dropping down from welterweight which should help him as well. Go with Pearson -114 at Bookmaker in this one.

Uriah Hall vs Gegard Mousasi

Division: Middleweight (185 pounds)

This is the main event and a rematch that has been over a year in the making. Mousasi was, at one time, considered the next big thing but losses to the truly elite like Jacare Souza and Lyoto Machida (circa 2013) suggested Mousasi is a more of a gatekeeper than a potential champion. His match with Hall in September of last year proved to be a stunning loss. Mousasi dominated the first round but let down his guard against Hall's extraordinary kicking ability and just like that, it was over. Mousasi will make no such mistakes this go-round as Hall is seriously disadvantaged on the mat with an opponent of Mousasi's grappling caliber. The UFC odds makers are installing Mousasi as a prohibitive favorite but they have the right favorite at the right price. Mousasi -520 at Pinnacle is the play.
