We are back for another exciting weekend of combat sports for UFC Vegas 43 in Las Vegas. This card has a few really good matchups and a strong co-main event between Michael Chiesa and Sean Brady. There are a couple spots that I feel good about in the props market, but be sure to check out the rest of the FTN crew’s bets FTN Bets Tracker in case we add anything prior to fight night.

As always, I will give the bets that I have placed below based on where I see the most value in the betting odds and how I see each fight matchup playing out. Feel free to hit me up on Twitter or in the MMA betting Discord with any questions that you have leading up until fight night Saturday. 

 

 

Terrance McKinney to Win by Submission or Decision

+380, DraftKings Sportsbook

McKinney is known as more of an early knockout finisher. However, he does have six submission victories and Fares Ziam has shown subpar defensive grappling in the past. Additionally, I expect McKinney to have wrestling success here and he should have enough cardio to bank two rounds with wrestling if he cannot find the finish. 

Sean Soriano to Win by KO/TKO

+215, DraftKings Sportsbook

Soriano should have a clear striking advantage over Shayilan Neurdanbieke. Seven of Soriano’s 14 wins coming by knockout, and Neurdanbieke was knocked out by Zhu Rong on the Chinese regional scene. This one is a no-brainer at these odds.

Loopy Godinez to Win by Submission

+850, DraftKings Sportsbook

For starters, this line is off market, as others have it hovering around +500, which is closer to accurate and maybe even still a solid bet. I expect Godinez to have a clear wrestling advantage over Loma Lookboonmee, and she has shown a well-rounded ground game in the past. These odds are way too high not to bet considering how I expect the fight to play out against Lookboonmee, who has suspect defensive grappling holes.
