The Ultimate Fighting Championship is back at the UFC Apex Centre in Las Vegas for another highly anticipated fight card. The UFC event odds are now available for us to delve into some parlay betting picks for UFC in Vegas 22 – headlined by middleweight contenders Derek Brunson and Kevin Holland, live on ESPN.
Montserrat Ruiz vs. Cheyanne Buys
UFC Women’s Strawweight Bout
Saturday, March 20th, 2021 – 08:05 PM EST – Live from the UFC Apex Centre in Las Vegas.
The UFC's women's strawweight division is heating up, and this weekend two fresh faces will make their promotional debuts. Mexican native Montserrat Ruiz will debut on a week's notice, whilst her opponent Cheyanne Buys has been texting Dana White for the previous two years begging for hers.
UFC Parlay Pick
Ruiz will want to close the distance and avoid a striking battle with Buys, but even as I write this sentence, I'm having flashbacks of how strong Buys is in the clinch. I'm not even positive that Ruiz will have an advantage anywhere in this fight.
The forward pressure and precise combinations of Buys is a sight to see, especially when you consider her young age of twenty-five. The available UFC odds favor Buys, and this should be no surprise when comparing each combatant's skill level.
Brad Riddell vs. Gregor Gillespie
UFC Lightweight Co-Main Event Bout
Saturday, March 20th, 2021 - 10:05 PM EST - Live from the UFC Apex Centre in Las Vegas
Gregor Gillespie has been sidelined for the best part of two years following his first career loss and knockout against Kevin Lee. Before this loss, Gillespie's hype was so intense that certain critics were tipping him to be the only offensive wrestling challenge for Khabib.
The challenger, Brad Riddell, is currently 9-1, training out of the famous City Kickboxing gym alongside the likes of – Israel Adesanya, Kai-Kara France & Alexander Volkanovski.
UFC Fight Prediction
The matchup ahead will present us with your classic 'striker vs grappler' contest. Although Gillespie is returning from a devasting head kick KO, we are under no illusion that his wrestling accolades are strong enough to take him into title contention.
We expect the high-level wrestling to dictate the pace and eventually gift Gillespie with a victory upon his return; through the fifteen-minute allotted time limit.
