UFC Vegas 92 is on tap for this Saturday (May 18, 2024) at the UFC peak center in Enterprise, Nevada. The centerpiece functions Brazilian sniper Edson Barboza lacing it up for his 36th pro battle. His challenger inside the peak’s little cage is unbeaten British possibility Lerone Murphy. The rest of the card looks like quite what you’d anticipate the UFC to counter-program an undeniable heavyweight boxing occasion with. The co-main sees Khaos Williams and Carlston Harris toss down in the Welterweight department. There’s likewise the Rock’s preferred fighter Themba Gorimbo conference Ramiz Brahimaj, likewise at Welterweight.

The “Prelims” are headlined by the rather hyped Light Heavyweight Oumar Sy. He has a brief notification replacement fighter in the kind of Tuco Tokkos to compete with. Also on the “Prelims” is Abus Magomedov vs. Warlley Alves and Emily Ducote vs. Vanessa Demopoulos.

As constantly, there’s lots to bank on this card, and we’ve got chances for the battles listed below.

UFC Vegas 92 Main Card Money Line Odds

Edson Barboza (+120) vs. Lerone Murphy (-142)

Edson Barboza is the most recent fighter in his late 30s to inhabit a primary card slot for the UFC. And he’ll be wishing to do what fellow veterans (Alexandre Pantoja, Jose Aldo, Anthony Smith and Derrick Lewis) have actually done recently and send out a young(er) opposition home with a bruised record, ego and face. Barboza’s challenger is no spring chicken. Lerone Murphy is 32, however he’s just got 14 battles to his name. Murphy is unbeaten in his profession, though he’s never ever dealt with anybody who has the sort of regard on their name that Barboza has.

Murphy’s UFC wins are choices versus Josh Culibao, Gabriel Santos and Douglas Silva de Andrade. He has 2 interruptions in the Octagon, a knee versus Makwan Amirkhani in 2021 (inspect it out here) and some ground and pound on Ricardo Ramos in 2020. His UFC launching was a draw opposite Khabib’s mate Zubaira Tukhugov.

Barboza’s battled everybody at Lightweight and reasonable variety of good Featherweights, too. He’s on a 2 battle winning streak presently with wins over Sodiq Yusuff and Billy Quarantillo. He lost to Bryce Mitchell before that and was dropped in Giga Chikadze in 2021 (see that here). Chikadze is among just 4 males to stop Barboza. The others are Justin Gaethje, Kevin Lee (due to a cut), prime Tony Ferguson and Jamie Varner (back in the dark ages).

Given Barboza’s achievements (both historical and current) I’m a little shocked to see him as the underdog here. I anticipate his chances will boil down throughout the week as more folks who remember him ending Terry Etim dive at the possibility of plus cash on among their preferred fighters.

Barboza is worthy of more than nostalgic cash, however. He’s likewise got height and reach on Murphy. He lands more considerable strikes than Murphy does, though he does soak up more, too (which might be thanks to his strength of schedule over the previous years). Barboza likewise has unbelievable takedown defense and BJJ abilities that he seldom gets to display.

Murphy is well-rounded and defensively strong on the feet. He’s likewise much faster and more athletic than Barboza. However, we’ve never ever seen how he responds to a centerpiece reservation. I’d rather take the longish chances on a veterinarian who has actually been here before and is not precisely dealing with an extremely possibility in his department.

UFC 288: Sterling v Cejudo

Khaos Williams (-130) vs. Carlston Harris (+110)

Khaos Williams and Carlston Harris both appeared like guys who might have been someone after their very first couple of battles in UFC. However, both were offered hard match-ups and lost to guys who today are someones in UFC’s Welterweight department. Williams’ narrative moving loss was a choice to Michel Pereira (see what decreased here). Whereas Harris lost to Shavkat Rakhmonov by spinning hook kick (inspect it out).

Both Williams and Harris are heavy handed. Williams has much greater output than Harris, however — landing practically two times the quantity of considerable strikes per minute than Harris does.

Harris might not have as much violence or activity in his locker, however he offsets it with a more well-rounded video game that includes takedowns and submission danger (he secured Jeremiah Wells with an Anaconda Choke last time out).

However, he may have a difficult time getting Williams down to reveal us any of that danger. Williams has exceptional takedown defense (80%).

I like Williams as the preferred here and see him winning the exchanges with Harris, while likewise having the ability to prevent being dragged down to where he’s less comfy.

UFC Fight Night: Gorimbo v Rodriguez

Themba Gorimbo (-142) vs. Ramiz Brahimaj (+120)

Themba Gorimbo, who was notoriously talented a home by Dwayne Johnson, is the preferred in his match with Ramiz Brahimaj. Brahimaj is coming off of a two-year layoff due to a back injury. The MIXED MARTIAL ARTS Gods may like the fairy-tale element of Brahimaj returning from such a terrible injury to declare an underdog success (most likely through his harmful submission video game). However, a realist should not look previous Gorimbo’s size, athleticism, striking and battling benefits in the match-up.

Gorimbo has a 5 inch reach benefit over Brahimaj and he ought to have the ability to keep his challenger at variety and avoid this battle from going someplace he can be sent.

I believe Gorimbo will have the ability to win with either a huge KO (like this) or a judges’ choice through a lukewarm kickboxing match, possibly with takedowns stressing completion of each round. I’d select these alternatives if Brahimaj had actually been active recently, however offered Brahimaj’s time away I’m a lot more positive in Gorimbo.

UFC 291: Vergara v Salvador

Adrian Yanez (-380) vs. Vinicius Salvador (+300)

This seems like a loser leaves town match with both Adrian Yanez and Vinicius Salvador coming off 2 losses. The enormous variation in chances may be because Yanez lost his last 2 through TKO (leg kicks vs. Jonathan Martinez and a ground and pound to Rob Font). Salvador’s losses were choices, to the far less declared CJ Vergara and Victor Altamirano.

I wouldn’t touch this bout. It might be Fight of the Night with both males able to land, and injure the other, on command. If you like to live precariously, you may put something on Yanez to land the KO blow before Salvador does.

UFC Fight Night: Hill v Gomes

Luana Pinheiro (+120) vs. Angela Hill (-142)

Angela Hill has actually been irregular since late, going 3-3 in her last 6. Though she is coming off a unanimous choice win over Denise Gomes on opponent area. Say what you desire about her record (11-13 in the UFC), you can’t reject that Hill has actually battled a few of the very best fighters offered to her. Her 3 latest losses protest Mackenzie Dern, Virna Jandiroba and Amanda Lemos. The wins sprayed in there consist of triumphes over Emily Ducote and Lupita Godinez.

Luana Pinheiro has actually had a strange run in the UFC, winning through an unlawful upkick DQ in her launching (see that here). She’s likewise dropped a split choice to Michelle Waterson and was spin kick KO’d by Amanda Ribas (watch that here).

Pinheiro will be aiming to take Hill down in the battle, however she may have a hard time to do so. She was 0-5 in takedowns versus Waterson. Waterson’s takedown defense is 70%. Hill’s is 75% (and she had the ability to pack all however among Godinez’s takedown efforts on her in 2015).

So I’m anticipating Hill to eliminate her battle here and get among her hallmark consentaneous choice triumphes.

UFC Vegas 92 ‘Prelims’ Under Card Odds

UFC Fight Night: Motta v Nolan

Tom Nolan is one half of the included Prelim at UFC Vegas 92.

Victor Martinez (+360) vs. Tom Nolan (-470)

Tom Nolan is the greatest preferred on the card, in spite of getting TKO’d in his UFC appropriate launching in January (see that here). That loss followed a remarkable Contender Series surface for the Aussie. Victor Martinez has a comparable story. He won a unanimous choice on the Contender Series in 2021 and after that lost his very first appropriate UFC battle through TKO (versus Jordan Leavitt in 2023). The knock on Martinez here is that he’s been out for over a year and just battled two times given that 2019.

Tamires Vidal (+270) vs. Melissa Gatto (-340)

Tamires Vidal was expected to eliminate Hailey Cowan here. Melissa Gatto can be found in on brief notification, going up to bantamweight for this battle. Despite being available in late, and beyond her typical weight class, Gatto is the heavy favorite. Both females are coming off losses and both females’s last UFC wins were TKOs over challengers who aren’t with the business any longer.

Oumar Sy vs. Tuco Tokkos

At this time of composing there were no chances launched for this match-up. Sy will definitely be a heavy preferred versus his brief notification replacement, however.

Abus Magomedov (-285) vs. Warlley Alves (+230)

Here’s another bout in between 2 fighters in desperate searches of a win. Both Abus Magomedov and Warlley Alves are best kept in mind for their previous challengers. Magomedov had an unforeseen centerpiece slot in 2015 versus Sean Strickland, which he lost and led to a title shot for Strickland. Fans of a specific age will keep in mind Alves stopping pre-gimmick Colby Covington with a guillotine choke on the UFC 194 undercard in 2015.

Magomedov will have an excellent size/reach benefit over Alves here, who is on a 3 battle losing skid. I expensive his possibilities to get a surface over Alves, who has actually been TKO’d two times in the last 2 years and was sent by Randy Brown in 2019.

Piera Rodriguez (-218) vs. Ariane Carnelossi (+180)

Piera Rodriguez is a comfy favourite here. The just acne on her professional profession is an armbar loss to Gillian Robertson. Ariane Carnelossi has actually been more up and down, with losses to Angela Hill and Lupita Godinez book-ending wins over Istela Nunes and Na Liang. She does have a body kick KO win over Ketlen Souza from her days on the Brazilian local circuit, however. Carnelossi’s 8% takedown defense suggests she will most likely invest a great deal of this battle on the ground.

Alatengheili (+130) vs. Kleydson Rodrigues (-155)

Team Nogueira’s Kleydson Rodrigues was choked out by Farid Basharat in 2015. His last 2 UFC reservations have actually seen him miss out on weight, initially in a win over Shannon Ross and after that in a bout versus Tatsuro Taira that was cancelled. The Mongolian Knight is coming off a loss to Chris Gutierrez. However, he’s a 4 time winner versus UFC competitors.

Vanessa Demopoulos (+270) vs. Emily Ducote (-340)

Former Invicta champ Emily Ducote is 2-2 in UFC with wins over Ashley Yoder and Jessica Penne. The underdog Vanessa Demopoulos beat previous Invicta champ Kanako Murata last time out. She likewise has a win over previous Invicta champ Jinh Yu Frey under her belt. Ducote is a good favorite here likely due to her activity and pressure.

UFC Vegas 92 Prop Bets And Parlays

Here’s a number of things that look fascinating for this Saturday’s UFC Vegas 92 card …

Two-battle parlay Angela Hill to beat Luana Pinheiro and Abus Magomedov to beat Warrley Alves (+130)

I actually like Angela Hill in this battle. I don’t believe Luana Pinheiro has the tools to beat Hill in a kickboxing match and I believe Hill’s experience and takedown defence will avoid this battle from being anything besides a kickboxing match. I think Abus Magomedov has actually struggled with rough match-making so far, having actually battled Sean Strickland and Caio Borralho in 2 of his very first 3 UFC contests. Warrley Alves seems like a little a gimme for him here. I believe Magomedov will have the ability to bother Alves from variety and may be able to send him late on in the battle.

Piera Rodriguez to beat Ariane Carnelossi through choice (+100)

Piera Rodriguez will be taking Ariane Carnelossi down at will. However, I don’t she will have the ability to parlay those takedowns into a battle ending series. Just like with Sam Hughes and Kay Hansen, I believe the takedowns will score her great deals of points with the judges. And we’ll see that when ball games read at the end of this one.

Themba Gorimbo to beat Ramiz Brahimaj through KO/TKO/DQ (+275)

I like Themba Gorimbo’s variety and I believe we might see a repeat of his win over Pete Rodriguez. Brahimaj has actually never ever been legally dropped in his profession, however I stress over his long injury lay-off and the number of hits he’s soaked up throughout UFC competitors (4.08 considerable strikes per minute).

Victor Martinez vs. Tom Nolan to complete in less than a minute (+500)

This is a strange battle so it may have a strange surface. Tom Nolan won in the Contender Series at 1:23 and after that lost to Nikolas Motta at 1:03. Martinez is 8 years older than Nolan. Martinez has actually battled two times given that 2019. Nolan’s whole professional profession (8 battles) has actually happened over that time. Nolan will be larger, longer, much faster and more athletic when they satisfy and I believe he’ll be excessive for Martinez and there’s a shot this thing is over quick.
