UFC Fight Night: Barboza vs. Chikadze Betting Guide
Kevin Lee (-145) vs. Daniel Rodriguez (+125)
Credit to Daniel Rodriguez for stepping in last minute to replace Sean Brady, with only two weeks to prepare for Kevin Lee. DRod does have the unbelievable ability to end the fight in one punch, which could give him a good chance.
Seems like a bad fight for Kevin Lee to accept as his first fight back at welterweight. The last time Lee fought at welterweight he lost in the 4th round to RDA. Lee tends to be a guy who can get in his own head. Very possible Lee is overlooking DRod because he is not a “big name guy”.
DRod greatly improves each time he steps into the octagon. That once street fighter style he posed is nonexistent. His boxing has vastly improved since 2019. Rodriguez is the better bet in this match up, taking Daniel Rodriguez straight and by TKO/KO.
Daniel Rodriguez (+125)
Daniel Rodriguez wins by TKO/KO(+380)
Gerald Meerschaert (+400) vs. Makhmud Muradov (-550)
Makhmud Muradov is a machine, holding a record of (25-6-0) in his professional career. 17 of those victories have come by knock out. His last loss came back in 2016 due to a doctor’s stoppage. Since 2016, he has won 14 straight, 11 by knock out.
On the other hand, Gerald Meerschaert is 1-2 in his last three fights. Both losses came by knock out in less than 1 minute and 35 seconds combined.
Clear that Muradov is the best bet, but how do you capitalize to get the best value? The bets I advise you to take are listed below. Keep in mind, not all books offer these prop bets. Muradov is going to get this done quick. The challenge becomes betting the correct round.
Betting on Muradov to win in round 2. Muradov tends to start off a little slow but once he gets going it should be lights out for GM3.

Mana Martinez (-380) vs. Guido Cannetti (-290)
Mana Martinez stepped in last minute to fight Trevin Jones last Saturday. Tragically Martinez had to withdraw from UFC Vegas 34 due to the sudden passing of his coach. One week later Martinez makes his UFC debut.
Mana Martinez trains out of Metro Fight Club in Houston Texas. Meaning his training partner is none other than Adrian Yanez. Just like Yanez, Martinez also has unbelievable striking, all of his victories have come by knock out.
Martinez is debuting against 41 year old Guido Cannetti. Cannetti holds a record of (8-5-0). He last fought on the UFC 248 card, where he was knocked out in the first round. Cannetti is not an active fighter. He has been in the UFC since 2014 and has only fought 6 times. Not a great sign.
Get ready for Martinez to enter the UFC with a bang. He is a much better striker and a much hungrier fighter.
Mana Martinez (-380)
Mana Martinez wins by TKO/KO (+125)
