Posted by Derrick Harper on February 22, 2018 in

Mixed Martial Arts action takes place this weekend from the Amway Center in Orlando Florida. UFC on Fox 28 will take place, and will be the third visit to the Central Florida city, but it’s first since December of 2015. The headline fight is the featherweight between Stephens and Emmett, but this appears to be a nice card. Let’s take a look at the latest MMA Betting Odds while making some predictions for UFC on Fox 28.

MMA Betting Preview & Predictions: UFC on Fox 28

Featherweight: Jeremy Stephens -150 over Josh Emmett

Jeremy Stephens is 31 years old out of Des Moines Iowa. He is fighting in his 42nd Mixed Martial Arts event. Stephens has been fighting since 2016, with his first UFC win coming back in 2017. He has won two straight fights, with his most recent coming in St. Louis back in January. His experience is what makes him favorite.

Josh Emmett is 32 years old and resides in Phoenix Arizona. He has just 14 fights under his belt, with just one loss. That came back in 2018 to Desmond Green. Both fighters are at the top of their game, but the experience of Stephens wins out.

Welterweight: Max Griffin +225 over Mike Perry

Max Griffin is 32 years old and a former West Coast Fighting Champion. The fighter known as Pain has 13 wins in 17 fights in his career. He started his fighting career back in 2009. His most recent fight was a loss to Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos, so expect some hunger coming from the underdog. Mike Perry is just 26 years old out of Michigan.

After his kickboxing career, he first faced Danny Roberts back at UFC 204 and really burst on the scene since then. He won that fight to move to 9-0. Since then though, he has lost 2 out of his last 4 fights, with his most recent to Santiago Ponzinibbio. Look for the upset here as Griffin is rolling in better.

Women’s Strawweight: Jessica Andrade -300 over Tacia Torres

You got to love Jessica Andrade in this fight. The Brazilian is known as Bate Estaca and just 26 years old. She has 17 wins on the Mixed Martial Arts tour, with her first coming in 2011, and her most recent coming in September, Andrade expects to have no fear in this fight.

Jessica Andrade is one of the MMA Betting favorites for UFC on Fox 28.

She will take on Tacia Torres, who stands just 5’1 and weighs 115lbs. Her 10 MMA wins in 11 fights have her opening eyes. The problem is – Andrade is too strong for her.

Light Heavyweight: Ovince Saint Preux -120 over Ilir Latifi

We are picking this as the fight of the night. The big boy from Florida – Saint Preux has 22 wins and 11 of them via knockout. The 34-year-old is coming off three straight wins. Since the loss to Volkan Oezdemir a year ago, he has smoked his opponents in Nashville, Japan, and New York City.

He will take on the much improved Ilir Latifi. The 34-year-old from Sweden is also coming into the fight fresh off a win. He beat Tyson Pedro back in September. Look for Saint Preux to get the win, but this will be a good one.

Best of luck with all your betting for UFC on Fox 28. We hope you got some good thoughts from our look at UFC on Fox 28. Enjoy the fights, and we look forward to seeing you back next week for more MMA betting odds!
