Saturday night, the fighters return to the octagon for the highly anticipated UFC 249 event in Jacksonville, Florida. The card is just absolutely packed with great fights – you will not want to miss this one. No fans, social distancing, extended time off – are any of these factors going to impact the likelihood of what we would expect? This card is not only action-packed but might be an unpredictable one.
Here are four of the best prop bets for UFC 249.
Will Tony Ferguson or Justin Gaethje Mention Khabib Nurmagomedov
It is no secret that both fighters are sizing up the reigning Champ. The winner of this fight will punch their ticket straight to the Khabib show for their next matchup. The post-fight callout game is strong and both fighters know the amount of hype it brings to the media. This is almost a guarantee Yes – granted each fighter is capable post fight…
Will Francis Ngannou vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik end in the first round
Out of every fight – this is the one with the most speculation to end quickly. These two Heavyweights are bound to put on a show, whether or not fans are in attendance. Look for the referee wave it off fast. *cue Rozenstruik walk-off KO*
Outcome of Donald Cerrone vs. Anthony Pettis – the rematch 7 years later
Their first fight did not goes as expected for “Cowboy” Cerrone, as it ended shortly after a kick to the body landed by Pettis. But that was seven years ago – and Cerrone is looking to bounce back from a three straight fight losing streak – with the latest defeat at the hands of “The Notorious” Conor McGregor. Look for this one to end badly for Pettis – finish by Cowboy.
Donald Cerrone by KO, TKO or Submission (+260)
Final call on the Niko Price vs. Vincente Luque
The odds on this one are hard to look past. Although Luque is the favourite to win, you can never discount the knockout power of Niko Price. At (+400) odds for a KO/TKO win by Price, it is hard to pass up.
Price to win by KO/TKO (+400)
