This bout between Gamzatov and Abreu is on the main card, and normally it probably wouldn’t be, but in this case it doesn’t matter a great deal because the entire card is being shown on ESPN+. Gamzatov is making his UFC debut this Saturday and one thing I have learned over time in UFC betting is that when the oddsmakers favor a fighter making his debut, especially when he is a solid favorite, that fighter almost always wins. Gamzatov is unbeaten, but he hasn’t really been that impressive in his wins. This is not an easy matchup against a solid fighter in Abreu, but I am sure not going to buck the oddsmakers on this one. I will lay the price and take Gamzatov to get the win. These two have combined for 14 first round finishes, so it seems likely that we should get an early finish one way or the other. I will also play the rounds to go under the total.
