Back Jimi Manuwa to beat Jan Blachowicz by stoppage
This lazy oddsmaking has enabled us to win several big underdog bets over the last couple of months. I still believe Taha was a solid bet at those odds, but those kinds of bets are always a gamble. I want to make it clear to you that the guy we are going to bet tonight also has holes in his game that his opponent could potentially exploit. There are also several unanswered questions surrounding him which could see him struggle.
Since PFL launched a few months ago, we have consistently seen inaccurate odds which have resulted in big underdogs winning on every event.
I have spent a lot of time researching the first 4 PFL events, and I firmly believe that the bookies are not doing their homework when setting the betting odds on PFL fights. This presents us with a golden opportunity to make money because fights are not fought on paper, they are fought in a cage. Our prefight bet on Eddie Wineland looked to be in good shape as he dropped Alejandro Perez in round 1 and did an excellent job in rounds 2 and 3 of controlling the center of the Octagon.
Rounds 2 and 3 were very close, and I personally have no problem with you scoring that fight for Perez, but I do have a massive problem with the circumstances surrounding the scoring of this fight. July is the busiest month of the year for MMA and this weekend is no exception with three major MMA events taking place. This weekend is also extra busy from a betting perspective because this is the first time in a long time where we can bet on Bellator Prelim fights as well as the main card.
Before jumping into the fights this weekend, I want to take some time to reflect on our results from last weekend. I briefly spoke about it last week, but for some unknown reason, there tends to be much more variance on the big UFC events. I am looking forward to getting back to our bread and butter this weekend with a low profile Fight Night card. Due to the number of fights taking place this week, I am prioritizing researching the fights over writing breakdowns. This will enable me to identify any betting opportunities before the odds change.
Then once my research is complete I will return to the articles and add my breakdowns and reasoning for each bet. Remember that we will be able to Live Bet the entire Prelim and Main card fights for the TUF 27 Finale and UFC , so be sure to join us in the Live Betting area of our website when the fights start to take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
In the past, we have made huge profits on the July 7th series of UFC events and I am optimistic that we will bank another big profit this year. Allsopp 5 days ago September 15, 0 Comments.

Back Fabricio Werdum to beat Alexander Volkov by stoppage Fabricio Werdum once again finds himself trying to force his way back into the UFC heavyweight title contention as he bids to become a two-time champion.
The veteran Brazilian dropped the belt to Stipe Miocic back in May and since then has gone in his last four fights, with back-to-back wins over Walt Harris and Marcin Tybura last year coming him in the top five. Werdum will now look to make it three-in-a-row when he fights in England for the fourth time in his career, but looking to halt his progress is former Bellator heavyweight tournament winner and ex-M-1 Global champion Alexander Volkov, who has surged up the UFC rankings by going since signing on with the premier promotion in mixed martial arts.
Volkov has beaten a couple of notable opponents in his early days in the UFC, beating Roy Nelson by decision before stopping Stefan Struve with strikes, but Werdum clearly represents the toughest challenge he has faced so far and I am not convinced that he will pass this test and propel himself into the top five in the heavyweight division.
The year-old Russian does have an edge in the stand-up game, but if this fight goes to the ground he is in all sorts of trouble because Werdum has a huge advantage here.
And that is what I expect we will see on Saturday night. The Brazilian will wear down Volkov, take him to the mat and use his world-class Brazilian jiu-jitsu skills to force him to tap out. Providing the opposition is a familiar foe in Jan Blachowicz, who comes into the bout on a two-fight winning run. These two men have fought once before under the UFC banner, back in April , and on that night it was Manuwa who had his hand raised after the judges gave him the nod in Krakow, Poland.
