UFC Fight Night Cejudo vs Dillashaw Odds & Expert Predictions

Let’s take a look at the latest UFC Odds for the next Fight Night with Cejudo vs Dillashaw as the main event.

UFC Fight Night Cejudo vs Dillashaw Odds & Expert Predictions

Henry Cejudo vs T.J. Dillashaw

The main event is a showdown between flyweight champion Henry Cejudo and bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw for Cejudo’s 125-pound belt. Cejudo vs Dillashaw was to top the bill of a pay-per-view event a week later but was moved to this fight card, the first under a five-year broadcast deal between the UFC and ESPN.

Greg Hardy vs Allen Crowder

Greg Hardy will look to prove he is more than a gimmick fighter in his second attempt at professional sports. Allen Crowder is the real deal with a record of 9 – 3. This fight will be fun to watch, but if Hardy can’t land punches, look out, because, although he is plenty big and plenty powerful, Hardy is still new to this and is not the most sound grappler out there.

Gregor Gillespie vs Yancy Medeiros

Gillespie is somewhat of a new name in UFC, but he has already made his presence known. In his five trips to the Octagon, he has allotted four finishes and three post-fight bonuses. He has a background in amateur wrestling, but he isn’t your typical grinder. When “The Gift” Gillespie gets the fight to the mat, he can really entertain, but also rain down pounding ground strikes, and looks for opportunistic submissions.

I have a feeling he will be in title contention in the near future. Medeiros has been competing against a higher level of fighter than Gillespie has come across prior to this bout. Medeiros, despite lacking some critical striking defenses, makes up for it with plenty of heart and toughness. If you’re a fan of violence and fighters with immense potential, this fight is for you.

  • Joseph Benavidez vs Dustin Ortiz
  • Paige VanZant vs Rachael Ostovich
  • Glover Teixeira vs Karl Roberson

PRELIMS on ESPN @ 7PM CST

Alexander Hernandez vs Donald Cerrone

It might be the “Prelims” undercard, but I think UFC is giving this fight a prime spot on the card for the first event in its new television deal. In my opinion, this is the right move by the UFC, because a fight like this is certain to convince a few casual fans to turn their attention to the main card on ESPN+ after Cerrone and/or Hernandez dazzle viewers with magnificent technique and violence.

Donald Cerrone is one of the favorites to win at the next UFC Fight Night.

“Cowboy” Cerrone is one of the sports most well-known characters. In fact, he might just be the most popular fighter on the roster to have never won a championship fight in UFC. He has the most wins, the most finishes, and he is sitting second to Nate Diaz for most post-fight bonuses in Zuffa/UFC history. There have been times when he has looked downright unstoppable with his striking ability and he has also shocked plenty of foes with how quickly he can lasso them into submission.
