UFC 200 Betting Preview and Bet Tips

UFC has grown exponentially since being founded in 1993. On Saturday night, the UFC is celebrating how far it has come with a bumper card in Las Vegas. UFC 200 includes some of the most eagerly anticipated fights for years and we’ve previewed the best of the action below to try and find some winning bets.

Jose Aldo v Frankie Edgar

Aldo v Edgar 2 has a lot of people talking. When these two first met inside the octagon, Aldo won by a unanimous decision but a number of UFC fans believed that the fight was much closer than the officials called it. This is the first time that Aldo has returned to the UFC spotlight since Connor McGregor knocked him out after only a few seconds and while no fighter goes an entire career unbeaten, the nature of the defeat means the Brazilian has plenty to prove.

The winner of this bout for the interim Featherweight belt will get a crack at McGregor later on in the year and the bookies narrowly believe that will be Edgar. The 34-year-old has been the champion at a higher weight class and is worth backing at odds of 19/20 with Boylesports.

Miesha Tate v Amanda Nunes

You’ll do well to find a stronger favourite on the card for UFC 200 that Miesha Tate. Tate won the Women’s Bantamweight Title by defeating Ronda Rousey’s conqueror, Holly Holm and is as short as 1/3 with some bookies to defeat Nunes before a rumoured matchup with Rousey.

It would be a major upset if Tate failed to win the fight but you don’t have to get involved at short odds. Instead, have a bet on Tate winning by submission at 6/4 with Paddy Power.

Brock Lesner v Mark Hunt

Brock Lesner is a bona fide UFC legend. The WWE wrestler has been away from the sport for a number of years but his return to the octagon has certainly got people talking. There are rumours that the 38-year-old has been given a fair bit of leniency in terms of drug testing but the real speculation is about what he will be capable of in his fight against Mark Hunt.
Hunt is actually four years older than Lesner but he is the odds-on favourite with the bookies. If Lesner had got a fight under his belt to warmup for Saturday he would be much more backable but as it is, Hunt looks a fair favourite.

This is sure to be an explosive fight. Lesner will try to take the fight to the ground to limit the undoubted striking advantage that Hunt has, if he doesn’t, he will be in for a tough time.
With Hunt’s immense punching power, a bet on the Kiwi to win in the first round at odds of 5/4 with Coral could well pay off. Lesner has lost twice to first round knockouts, a record which could be increased to three late on Saturday night.
