Big Trouble in Little Kurdistan UFC Betting Preview

July 26th, 2019 UFC

Also known as the UFC betting preview of the Fight Night 108 event scheduled to take place on April 22 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

John Dodson vs. Eddie Wineland

Weight class: Bantamweight

Sportsbook odds for fans who bet on UFC:

Eddie Wineland 2½ (-140) +350

John Dodson 2½ (+120) -440

Wineland: The former WEC Bantamweight Champion is coming off back-to-back wins after losing two in a row. Wineland defeated Frankie Saenz by TKO at UFC on Fox 20 on July 23, 2016 in Chicago in the Performance of the Night, and then beat Takeya Mizugaki also via TKO at UFC on Fox 22 on December 17, 2016 in Sacramento.

Dodson: After unsuccessfully challenging for the flyweight championship for the third time, the Magician returned to the bantamweight division and defeated Manvel Gamburyan via TKO at UFC on Fox 19 on April 16, 2016 in Tampa. Next, he lost to John Lineker by split decision at Fight Night 96 on October 1, 2016 in Portland – a bout that was contested as catchweight after Lineker missed weight.

Joe Lauzon vs. Stevie Ray UFC betting preview

Weight class: Lightweight

Odds for fans who bet on UFC:

Stevie Ray 2½ (-140) -210
Joe Lauzon 2½ (+120) +175

Ray: Stevie Ray is seven feet tall. He kills men by the hundreds. And if he were here, he would consume the English with fireballs from his eyes, and bolts of lightning from his a**. Oh wait, that’s William Wallace. Sorry, wrong Braveheart. Also, he is not Booker T’s brother and one half of Harlem Heat. Ray bounced back from a loss to Alan Patrick at Fight Night 95 on 24 September 2016 in Brazil with a win over Ross Pearson Fight Night 99 on 19 November 2016 in Belfast. Saturday’s will be Ray’s first fight in American soil. He’s all Gene Kelly arriving in Broadway singing “gotta dance!”

Lauzon: The Human Bonus Machine could break his tie with Nate Diaz for most post-fight bonus awards (15) in the history of UFC even if he doesn’t win the bout. As a matter of fact, five of his seven Fight of the Night bonuses have come in losing efforts. Concerning Ray, Lauzon told Champions.co that “the perfect scenario is he tries to shoot in and I guillotine him right off the bat.” But, wouldn’t that be like bringing a knife to a gunfight?

Jake Ellenberger vs. Mike Perry UFC betting preview

Weight class: Welterweight

Odds for fans who bet on UFC:
Jake Ellenberger – 1½ (-120) +165
Mike Perry – 1½ (EV) -190

Ellenberger: The Juggernaut is what they call in wrestling a ‘jobber to the stars,’ having lost to the likes of Robbie Lawler, Kevin Gastelum, and Jorge Masvidal – to whom he lost after getting his foot caught in the fence, in which position Gamebred proceeded to administer him a well-deserved beating.

Perry: Platinum, on the other hand, is a young up-and-comer who went undefeated in seven bouts before signing with UFC where he is 2-1 after suffering his first professional loss, to Alan Jouban at UFC on Fox 22.
