Dana White & Co. are back on American soil for UFC in Vegas 12. The odds are now available for us to delve into some parlay betting picks for this weekends UFC event, headlined by Anderson Silva vs Uriah Hall, live this Saturday on ESPN.
Greg Hardy vs. Maurice Greene
UFC Heavyweight Bout Saturday, 31st October live from the Apex Center
After last weeks emotional ride through UFC 254 I'm attempting to maintain my composure, Khabib Nurmagomedov destroyed Justin Gaethje and retired the undisputed G.O.A.T. Straight back into M.M.A. action with no time to gather our thoughts. We have UFC in Vegas 12 with another potential retirement from Anderson Silva.
Former Carolina Panthers N.F.L. player and freak of nature Greg Hardy returns to the octagon this weekend, and I am not missing out on Hardy versus a lower level fighter. Why? You might ask because Hardy's athleticism alone has made the opposition look weak unless he's fought a high calibre of fighter.
Maurice Greene barely avoided a beat down loss from Gian Villante in his previous fight, managing to escape the contest with a submission victory late in the third round. This should be a concern, especially when Gian is a small heavyweight and was still able to piece up Greene with his kickboxing.
UFC Parlay Pick
The number of shots that Greene allowed Vilante to land won't fare well against the 6'5 former line-backer, Maurice stems from a background in crochet while Hardy is a former NFL footballer – need I say anymore?
Alexander Hernandez vs. Chris Grutezemacher
UFC Lightweight Bout Saturday, 31st October live from the Apex Center in Las Vegas
After testing his skills at the highest level of the sport, twenty-eight-year-old Alexander Hernandez will take a step back and revaluate. The good news is a drop-down in the competition should remind us why the youngster was once held in high regard.
Chris Grutezemacher is a grinder; the MMA Lab could have their hands full this weekend if Chris cannot find a grappling advantage.
UFC Fight Prediction
I anticipate Hernandez getting back on track, lessons learnt against the likes of Cowboy Donald Cerrone, Francisco Trinaldo and Drew Dober is complementary to the potent yet sleek striking offence that Hernandez can put on display.
The available UFC odds are quite steep, but with that said, I have enough confidence in Hernandez outshining the older grappler with his capable, imposing offence.
Adrian Yanez vs. Victor Rodriguez
UFC Bantamweight Bout Saturday, 31st October live from the Apex Center in Las Vegas
Bantamweight prospect Adrian Yanez will make his second appearance under the UFC banner. His introduction came with a win on 'Dana Whites Contender Series', now he will make his official debut in a similar environment versus a late replacement in Victor Rodriguez.
The problem for Rodriguez is experience. He's barely fought outside of Alaska, and his grappling chops might not be enough on short notice. Yanez has looked tremendous and fought a level above his opponent; it could be quick work for Yanez this weekend.
