The Ultimate Fighting Championship presents us with a heavyweight championship rubber match of the ages this weekend. Let us waste no time because the fight odds are now available for us to delve into some parlay betting picks for UFC 260 – headlined by Stipe Miocic and Francis N’Gannou competing for UFC heavyweight gold live on ESPN.
Omar Morales vs. Shane Young
UFC Featherweight Bout
Saturday, March 27th, 2021 – 09:05 PM EDT – Live from the UFC Apex Centre in Las Vegas
Aged 35, Omar Morales has nothing left but to leave it all in the UFC octagon. It's taken him longer than expected (due to injury) to reach the big stage, but after an impressive victory inside the distance in front of Dana White, Omar was soon gifted with a UFC contract.
An 8-year journey through the regional and national MMA scene while maintaining an undefeated record has finally landed the Venezuelan native onto the grandest stage (UFC). And just three fights into his contract, his lone loss came up against the elite skill level of Giga Chikadze, which holds no shame.
One of New Zealand's finest kickboxers inside the UFC, Shane Young, is attempting to find winning ways after suffering from a first-round stoppage during his previous featherweight bout.
A professional MMA competitor since 2012, Young is a well-trained martial artist under the famous City Kickboxing gym alongside the likes of middleweight champion Israel Adesanya & flyweight athlete Kai-Kara France.
UFC Parlay Pick
In a contest where we should expect nothing but striking output, it is hard to overlook the size and technical advantage Omar possesses. Making his first trip to the featherweight division, should weigh-ins go to plan, Morales can undoubtedly cause a ruckus in the 145lbs division.
The available UFC odds with favor our selection, but still, the value is not too bad at a price tag of -190.
Modestas Bukauskas vs. Michal Oleksiejczuk
UFC Light Heavyweight Bout
Saturday, March 27th, 2021 - 11:05 PM EDT - Live from the UFC Apex Centre in Las Vegas
Both Bukauskas & Oleksiejczuk are renowned for putting on a show, and with a UFC fight card that has taken a few cancellations, I'm ecstatic to see this fight remain in-tact.
The former Cage Warriors light heavyweight champion Bukauskas has a highlight reel worth paying attention to, and we should expect fireworks again this weekend.
His opponent is no slouch either; since Oleksiejczuk made his UFC debut, he has gone 2-2 with two finishes inside the distance but unfortunately fell victim to a higher level of competition in Ovince Saint Preux and Jimmy Crute.
UFC Fight Prediction
27-year-old light heavyweight monster Modestas Bukauskas has competed in fourteen professional MMA contests, and just one of those bouts was decided on the judge's scorecards.
Michal Oleksiejczuk has also competed in fourteen professional MMA bouts, with just three of his fights being resolved through the judges.
If you haven't already guessed, we do not expect this fight to go all three rounds, and for some unknown reason, the bookmakers are offering a very attractive price.
