Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Austin, Texas, for a Sunday (Feb. 18, 2018) spectacular this weekend, putting finishers Donald Cerrone and Yancy Medeiros against each other in UFC Fight Night 126’s main event. The evening will also see Derrick Lewis take on Marcin Tybura, James Vick throw down with Francisco Trinaldo, and Thiago Alves welcome Curtis Millender to the Octagon inside Frank Erwin Center.

Ain’t no gambling like gambling on the Lord’s day ... here’s how to go about it:

What Went Wrong at UFC 221?

Well, it’s about time I had a straight-up bust this year. Jake Matthews and Jussier Formiga both showed significantly more stopping power than in previous appearances and got me much more interested in their future fights. Formiga was also aided by Ben Nguyen continuing to throw naked low kicks despite getting taken down from them more than once, but no use crying over spilled brain cells.

UFC Fight Night 126 Odds For The Undercard:

Jared Gordon (-260) vs. Diego Ferreira (+200)
Geoffrey Neal (-215) vs. Brian Camozzi (+170)
Joby Sanchez (-135) vs. Roberto Sanchez (+105)
Lucie Pudilova (-155) vs. Sarah Moras (+125)
Brandon Davis (-195) vs. Steven Peterson (+160)
Oskar Piechota (-260) vs. Tim Williams (+210)
Alex Morono (-230) vs. Josh Burkman (+180)

Thoughts: Roberto Sanchez did not start out as an underdog. He should not be one now. Joby has the UFC experience and Roberto’s last fight was something of a disaster, but the style match up is definitely in the latter’s favor. Joby got taken down by both of his “Tuesday Night Contender Series” opponents and Roberto’s opponents tend not to get back up once he puts them on their backs. Roberto wins the Sanchez battle, so bet accordingly. And be sure to double-check your ticket.

UFC Fight Night 126 Odds For The Main Card:

Donald Cerrone (-160) vs. Yancy Medeiros (+140)
Marcin Tybura (-145) vs. Derrick Lewis (+125)
James Vick (-220) vs. Francisco Trinaldo (+180)
Thiago Alves (-180) vs. Curtis Millender (+150)
Sage Northcutt (-300) vs. Thibault Gouti (+240)

Thoughts: I am more than happy to admit that my distaste for James Vick colors my thinking, but putting him as a -220 favorite over someone who’s 8-1 in his last nine bouts seems a bit excessive. Their resumes are fairly close when it comes to quality of opponents and it’s worth noting that Vick’s sole UFC loss came against another southpaw pressure fighter in Beneil Dariush. Trinaldo is still a beast at 39 and has the goods to ruin Vick’s homecoming.

UFC Fight Night 126 Best Bets:

  • Single bet -- Roberto Sanchez: Bet $80 to make $84
  • Single bet -- Francisco Trinaldo: Bet $50 to make $90

Somebody’s getting hurt and somebody’s getting a bonus in the main event. See you Sunday, Maniacs!
