UFC 270 Francis Ngannou vs. Cyril Gane

Why Bet on Francis Ngannou

When we last saw Francis “The Predator” Ngannou in the octagon, he knocked out Stipe Miocic in the second round to claim the heavyweight championship last March. 

It was an impressive performance from Ngannou, who showed improvement from his previous decision loss to Miocic three years before.

Ngannou is the hardest hitter in the UFC and has gone 11-2 in the octagon with first-round finishes against big names like Cain Velasquez, Junior dos Santos, Curtis Blaydes, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, and Alistair Overeem

Why Bet on Cyril Gane

Ciryl “Bon Gamin” Gane is fresh off a victory against Derrick Lewis in August where he had a 98-16 edge in significant strikes and overwhelmed Lewis with a flurry of punches in the third round. 

The Frenchman is now a perfect 10-0 in his MMA career, including 7-0 in the UFC.

The 31-year-old is a physical specimen who looks and moves like an NFL edge rusher. 

Not just a fantastic athlete, Gane is an elite technical striker who excelled in kickboxing and Muay Thai before entering MMA

Final Betting Analysis: Francis Ngannou vs. Cyril Gane

The undisputed UFC heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou is the underdog in the betting odds against interim title-holder Ciryl Gane. 

Gane’s technical precision may give him a slight edge on paper, but expect Ngannou’s power to be the trump card, as we expect a vicious win by KO for “The Predator” to retain the belt.

UFC 270 Brandon Moreno vs. Deiveson Figueiredo

Why Bet on Brandon Moreno

Brandon “The Assassin Baby” Moreno claimed featherweight gold with a third-round submission of Figueiredo at UFC 263 last June, following a draw between the two fighters at UFC 256.

Moreno is 5-0-2 in seven fights since returning to the promotion in 2019, with his other draw during the span coming against current No. 2-ranked flyweight contender Askar Askarov.

Despite being just 28 years old, Moreno has 26 MMA fights under his belt and three of his five career defeats came when he was still a teenager.

He’s a very well-rounded fighter who combines high-level grappling with crisp boxing and a granite chin.

Why Bet on Deiveson Figueiredo

Deiveson Figueiredo looked lackluster in his previous loss to Moreno but he would have likely won the first bout had he not been deducted a point for a low blow. 

Before facing MorenoFigueiredo had won five fights in a row. He won the 125-pound title with a first-round finish of Joseph Benavidez in 2020 and successfully defended his belt with a first-round submission of Alex Perez later that year.

Figueiredo is 9-2-1 at the UFC level with seven of his nine wins coming via finish. 

The man nicknamed “Deus Da Guerra” has massive size and power for this weight class, along with top-notch submission skills. 

Final Betting Analysis: Brandon Moreno vs. Deiveson Figueiredo

The third part in a movie trilogy can often disappoint but don’t expect a letdown here as Figueiredo and Moreno battle for the flyweight title for the third time in the last 13 months. 

Things have shifted around in that time, as Brandon was an underdog in the first two fights, but now, after the upset and crowning of a new Champion, he comes as the betting favorite for the first time.

Brandon Moreno has the edge in multiple areas, being younger, faster, and incredibly durable. 

Figueiredo has the power advantage, but our betting token is on Moreno to win again, likely by submission or points, and retains the belt.

UFC 270 Cody Stamann vs. Said Nurmagomedov

Why Bet on Cody Stamann

Stamann had been on a tear, winning 10 in a row, including three in the UFC, before losing to now-champion Aljamain Sterling in 2018.

He has a record of 19-4-1 and had only been stopped once in his career.

He is a well-rounded fighter with more emphasis on grappling, but he doesn’t force it, as he is willing to stand and trade as he looks for the opportunity.

Why Bet on Said Nurmagomedov

Despite the name, Said is not related to the former lightweight king, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

He stands at 14-2 and is not much of a grappler.

He, however, is confident and relaxed on the feet, with a lot of speed, power, and creativity.

With an arsenal that includes excellent kick, and spinning attacks that manage to have both speed and power, he is one opponent to watch out for.

Final Betting Analysis: Cody Stamann vs. Said Nurmagomedov

Due to the type of fighters these two are, things are likely to remain on the feet for most of the fight, and unless Stamann could secure the takedown and work on the ground, our betting token favors Nurmagomedov’s striking for a decision victory.

UFC 270 Ilia Topuria vs. Charles Jourdain

Why Bet on Ilia Topuria

Ilia Topuria is a massive favorite after his opponent had to be replaced on short notice, but this comes from multiple factors.

Some of those factors include his undefeated 11-0 record and being the first fighter to have stopped Ryan Hall.

With a 91% Finishing rate so far, expect a lot from Topuria shortly.

Why Bet on Charles Jourdain

Charles Jourdain is a huge underdog, as he hasn’t been able to score a winning streak in his last 7 fights, and having won his last encounter doesn’t help much at this moment.

He will be aiming to break the curse when he meets a dangerous opponent, but the fan base is not taking his side at this moment.

Final Betting Analysis: Ilia Topuria vs. Charles Jourdain

Things are pointing towards the undefeated fighter coming into the fight to make a statement.

Our betting token is on Topuria via early stoppage and we expect him to get ready to fight again pretty soon afterward.

Ngannou vs. Gane Betting Pick: Francis “The Predator” Ngannou

Moreno vs. Figueiredo Betting Pick: Brandon “The Assassin Baby” Moreno

Stamann vs. Nurmagomedov Betting Pick: Said Nurmagomedov

Topuria vs. Jourdain Betting Pick: Ilia “El Matador” Topuria
