After a week off, the UFC is back this weekend with UFC Fight Night: Woodley vs Burns. That means it is time for another episode of the Sharp Edges podcast. Calvin and Brandon are back to discuss this weekend’s card that features plenty of young rising talent, as well as a number of juicy underdog bets to cash in on.
After a brief discussion about the reopening of Las Vegas, Calvin and Brandon begin talking about this weekend’s card, starting with the very first fight of the prelims. The second bout, between Louis Smolka and Casey Kenney is the first one we see where Calvin and Brandon have some betting action. In the third bout, both Calvin and Brandon are in agreement on whom to bet on in the bout between Tim Elliot and Brandon Royval.
After a couple of more prelim discussions, Calvin and Brandon turn their focus on to the main card bouts. Mackenzie Derns is one of the biggest favorites on this weekend’s cards, but is her opponent Hannah Cifers actually the better bet? Roosevelt Roberts is another fighter who is highly favored as he takes on a tough Brok Weaver. However, Calvin and Brandon are both a little skeptical of this line.
Spike Carlyle is the name to keep an eye on this weekend. Can he take down Billy Quarantillo with another quick knockout as he did in his last fight? The co-main event is our only Heavyweight bout on this card. Brandon leans one way while Calvin leans the other in a bout between Blagoy Ivanov and Augusto Sakai. Finally, in the main event, both Calvin and Brandon agree that either Tyron Woodley or Gilbert Burns is their best bet of the weekend. Who is it?
