Fight Night 106 Preliminary Card UFC Betting Preview

March 22, 2017 UFC

Francisco Trinaldo vs. Kevin Lee UFC betting preview

Weight class: Lightweight

Odds for fans who bet on UFC

Lee – 2½ (-200) -160
Trinaldo – 2½ (+170) +140

Trinaldo has won his last seven fights in a row. Massaranduba has gone from an over-aggressive style to a striking attack that revolves around movement and sudden rhythm changes since debuting in the UFC in June 23, 2012. He can bounce light on his happy feet backwards and all of a sudden move forward with a straight or looping left hand or left body kick when fighting an opponent with an orthodox stance. This maneuver can come in handy against Lee, who loves to come forward and use his wrestling game. WWE2k17? According to The Motown Phenom, he’ll be doing the company a “favor” by ending Trinaldo’s winning streak. “I don’t think they want him in that top 5,” Lee told MMAjunkie Radio. “Clearly I’m much more marketable.” And humble.

Rani Yahya vs. Joe Soto UFC betting preview

Weight class: Bantamweight

Odds for fans who bet on UFC: 

Soto – 2½ (-270) +140
Yahya – 2½ (+230) -160

Soto snapped a three-fight losing streak with back-to-back submission wins over Chris Beal and Marco Beltran. Soto is a former Bellator and Tachi Palace Fights competitor whose big time debut was bittersweet. He went the distance with then- Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw for the belt but got KTFO in the fifth round. If Soto is the man of 1000 holds, Yahya is the man of 1004 holds. The Brazilian won the 66 kg division of the 2007 Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling World Championship – which presumably is like the Kumite but with 100% more tapping out. Furthermore, he won three Submission of the Night bonuses with World Extreme Cagefighting. Yahya has won his last four straight bouts – two of which were submissions, of course.

Michel Prazeres vs. Josh Burkman UFC betting preview
Weight class: Lightweight

Odds for fans who bet on UFC:
Burkman – 2½ (-245) +215 
Prazeres – 2½ (+205) -255

Michel Richard Cunha dos Prazeres has won three consecutive fights, including an upset of Gilbert Burns on September 24, 2016. “I always look to win by knockout or submission,” Tractor told MMA Junkie. He may have to look harder, though, because his last six wins have been by decision, and his last KO win was in 2004. “I’ve been following Josh’s career for some time,” Prazeres added. Speaking of which, Burkman’s current 1-4-1 UFC record may have his fans longing for the good old days of his first stint with the promotion. Old? Definitely. Good? Not so much. Burkman went 5-5 in UFC between 2005 and 2008. By way of comparison, his non-UFC MMA record is 22-5. Talk about a big fish in a small pond. Clearly, the best strategy for Prazeres is to constantly remind Burkman that Fight Night 106 is in fact a UFC event. Conversely, The People’s Warrior could ask whether he could be exempted from wearing the UFC Reebok uniform. Worth the shot.
