Fight Night 111 UFC betting: One Tuck and two no-Tucks

July 17th, 2019 UFC

In addition to the Holly Holm vs. Bethe Correia main event, Fight Night 111 offers plenty of UFC betting opportunities, including a lightweight bout featuring Chamorro American professional fighter Jon Tuck. So Carpe Diem, for as they say; Here Today, Gone Chamorro.

Takanori Gomi vs. Jon Tuck 
Weight class: Light

Sportsbook odds for fans who bet on UFC:
Takanori Gomi 1½ (+105) +230
Jon Tuck 1½ (-125) -270

‘The Fireball Kid’ Gomi is a former Shooto and Pride Fighting lightweight champion but never quite found his footing in the UFC, going 4-7 since his promotional debut in 2010. Gomi has lost his last three fights in a row, including a TKO loss to Jim Miller at UFC 200 on July 9, 2016 in Las Vegas.

Jon Tuck; behold the man of Chamorro, today. Not unlike Gomi, Tuck was undefeated up until his UFC debut in 2012; he has gone 2-4 ever since – including losing his last two straight. The odds do favour him, so that’s something.

Tarec Saffiedine vs. Rafael dos Anjos UFC betting preview
Weight class: Welter

Sportsbook odds for fans who bet on UFC:
Tarec Saffiedine 2½ (-245) +215
Rafael Dos Anjos 2½ (+205) -255

Tarec – we’re not on a first-name basis but it’s easier to type – has lost three of his last four bouts, including the last two back-to-back. Which makes him 2-3 in UFC for the former Strikeforce welterweight champion. Seems like rough transitions are the theme of day, which begs the question, what will be tomorrow’s theme of the day?

Dos Anjos looked to bounce back from losing the UFC lightweight title to Eddie Alvarez about a year ago, but Tony Ferguson had different plans at The Ultimate Fighter Latin America 3 Finale – which may have prompted RDA to switch to welterweight, a division in which he’ll be making his debut against Tarec.

Justin Scoggins vs. Ulka Sasaki UFC betting preview
Weight class: Fly

Sportsbook odds for fans who bet on UFC:
Ulka Sasaki 1½ (-175) +400
Justin Scoggins 1½ (+155) -500

Continuing the trend, Sasaki arrived in UFC in 2014 with an 18-1-2 record in his local Japan; he has gone 1-3 since, including a unanimous decision loss to Wilson Reis at UFC 208 in February in Brooklyn.

Hey, look who’s back in the flyweight division. Are our eyes deceiving us or is that Justin Scoggins? After missing weight at UFC 201, Scoggins had supposedly moved up to bantam for good. “No more 125 – never. [Scoggins is] done with 125. Bantamweight only,” Justin’s father Chris Scoggins told Bloody Elbow about a year ago. “Look out, [UFC bantamweight champion Dominick] Cruz.” Look out for Cody Garbrandt, he probably meant. One loss to Pedro Munhoz later, and Scoggins is a flyweight again.
