UFC 239 – Best BetsCat:未分類

The Octagon Yields to T-Mobile Center at Las Vegas for Saturday night’s 11-fight UFC 239 card.

The series features a pair of title conflicts, together with MMA’s best-ever fighters on the men’s and women’s side defending their respective belts. Jon’Bones’ Jones is set to shoot on Thiago Santos at the main event. Jones was a -600 favored at most books as of Tuesday, but the Westgate SuperBook had Jones in -850 late Friday afternoon. Santos was a +575 underdog in the Westgate. A number of overseas stores had Jones at a less expensive price from the -650 area. The total was 2.5 rounds (‘beneath’ -135,’over’ +105) at most spots. Jones (24-1-1 MMA, 18-1-1 UFC) has had his hand increased 25 occasions in 26 career fights. His only”loss” was a disqualification for prohibited 12-to-6 elbows at a blowout win over Matt Hamill on Dec. 5 of 2009. His third-round knockout win over Daniel Cormier in UFC 214 was overturned and changed to a no-decision when Jones tested positive for the PED turinabol. Jones appears — for now — to be on the right path outside of the cage lately. This is his third battle in a period of six months and a week, marking his most action since 2011-12. He has indicated he wishes to fight three or more occasions in 2019. Jones is away from a unanimous-decision triumph over Anthony Smith in UFC 235 in March. He dominated Alexander Gustafsson using a third-round KO success at UFC 232 on Dec. 29 of 2018. Before those two victories, various suspensions and arrests enabled him to compete just four times in a period of more than five decades. Jones has cleaned the light-heavyweight branch during his dominant career. At a five-fight stretch from March 19 of 2011 to Sept. 22 of 2012, he won the belt and successfully defended it four times. All five of those wins came over former winners — Shogun Rua, Rampage Jackson, Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans and Vitor Belfort. Only Evans went the distance with Jones during that interval. Santos (21-6 MMA, 13-5 UFC) is 8-1 in his previous nine struggles since February of 2017. He’s bagged six fight-night bonuses in this stretch. The 35-year-old Santos competed at middleweight his entire career until moving around 205 pounds to face Eryk Anders from the UFC Fight Night 137 headliner at Sao Paulo past September. Anders took the battle on six days of note if Jimi Manuwa pulled his departure with Santos because of an injury. The former University of Alabama football player needed to fly to Brazil and also make weight in rapid order. Plus, he had been going up a weight class for the very first time in his career. The scrap was a slugfest that earned Fight of the Night honors. Regrettably, Anders collapsed due to exhaustion when trying to walk back to his corner once the third round finished. The referee immediately known as the struggle to give Santos a TKO victory. Read more: sportsrook.com
