MMA Betting Preview for World Series of Fighting 35

August 1st, 2019 UFC

Shawn Jordan versus Blagoy Ivanov MMA betting preview

Weight class: Heavyweight

Notes: for the WSOF Heavyweight Title

Odds for fans who bet on MMA: 

Shawn Jordan 1½ (-120) -125
Blagoy Ivanov (c) 1½ (-110) -105

After a three-year stint with UFC in which Jordan went 6-4 and ended with a UD loss to Ruslan Magomedov at UFC 192 on October 3, 2015, the Savage debuted in the Nevada-based World Series of Fighting promotion with a TKO win over Ashley Gooch at WSOF 33 on October 7, 2016. Ending the Gooch’s three-year, eight-fight winning streak put Jordan on the express lane to a title shot. Although the express lane seems to actually be the only lane, as the champ can attest to. After suffering the first loss of his career in his last fight in Bellator, Ivanov fought for and won the Heavyweight Championship in his WSOF debut in June 5, 2015. Bagata has successfully retained the belt on two occasions.

Lance Palmer versus Andre Harrison MMA betting preview

Weight class: Featherweight

Notes: for the WSOF Featherweight Title

Odds for fans who bet on MMA:

Lance Palmer (c) 4½ (-145) EV
Andre Harrison -4½ (+115) -130

“If I had to put money on someone I’d put it on myself,” Harrison told Word. Like Wesley Snipes said, always bet on black. When asked whether he was surprised to be offered a title fight in just his second bout with the promotion, Harrison “thought I’d have to fight another fight before I got Lance.” Maybe in UFC, but WSOF is clearly the land of opportunity. Take Palmer, for instance. The Party has been booked in six fights in WSOF, and only one has not been for Featherweight Championship – and that one wasn’t even his first bout; he was thrown right in the mix for the inaugural featherweight title. In fact, the entire weight class has pretty much revolved around Palmer since his promotional debut in 2013. He won the belt from Rick Glenn in 2014, and dropped it to Alexandre Almeida in 2015, from whom he won it back in 2016.

Donavon Frelow versus Bekbulat Magomedov

Weight class: Bantamweight

Notes: for the WSOF Bantamweight Title

Odds for fans who bet on MMA:

Donavon Frelow – 3½ (-130) +580
Bekbulat Magomedov – 3½ (EV) -1000

Timur Valiev was scheduled to defend his championship against Magomedov before pulling out due to injuring. Instead of pulling out an interim title out of hammerspace, like the UFC would do and has done, WSOF simply decided to vacate the belt and put it up for grabs between the top two contenders in the division. Frelow took the fight less than a month – which in MMA-time is very short notice – after his previous bout, a split-decision win over Zeke Enrique at Gladiator Challenge: Battle Cage after 16. Frelow was last seen inside a decagon in October 2015. That’s right, a decagon. WSOF is the McDowell’s to UFC’s McDonald’s. Bekbulat Magomedov last fought at WSOF 33, but in a card that also included Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Magomed Magomedkerimov, he may have understandably gone unnoticed, despite his victory over Bobby Cooper.
