The Ultimate Fighter25 Finale

Redemption TUF has the UFC Betting Stuff NKOTB Style

July 5, 2017 UFC

Redemption Finale (aka The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale) brings the UFC betting goodness like a boy band brought sales in the late 80s-early 90s. Below is a sample of what awaits us in Nevada on Friday, when we will be hangin’ TUF.

Marc Diakiese vs. Drakkar Klose
Weight class: Light

Offshore sportsbook odds for fans who bet on UFC:
Marc Diakiese – 2½ (-145) -265 
Drakkar Klose – 2½ (+125) +225

‘Bonecrusher’ Diakiese is undefeated in 12 fights (3-0 in UFC, the rest in his native England), the most recent of which was a 30-second, performance of the night, KO win over Teemu Packalén at Fight Night 107 in March. The British brawler was all like, “don’t worry ’bout nothing ’cause it won’t take long, I’m gonna put you in a trance with a funky punch.”

Everybody’s always talking about who’s on top, and you don’t want to cross Klose’s path ’cause you’re gonna get stomped. The Michigander accumulated a 7-0-1 in such promotions as Resurrection Fighting Alliance and World Fighting Federation before debuting in UFC with a unanimous decision win over Devin Powell at Fight Night 103 in January. 

Brad Tavares vs. Elias Theodorou UFC betting preview
Weight class: Middle

Odds for fans who bet on UFC:
Brad Tavares – 2½ (-270) +115
Elias Theodorou – 2½ (+230) -135

Tavares ain’t gonna give anybody any slack, and if you try to keep him down he’s gonna come right back. As a matter fact, he bounced back from a loss to Robert Whittaker at Fight Night 65 on May 10, 2015 with a win over Caio Magalhães at UFC 203 on September 10, 2016. He needs more of that because he has lost three of his last five bouts.

Get loose everybody ’cause ‘Spartan’ Theodorou is gonna do his thing. The Canadian grappler rebounded from his first career loss – to Thiago Santos at Fight Night 80 on December 10, 2015 – with back-to-back wins; two UD wins, over Sam Alvey at Fight Night 89 on June 18, 2016 and Cezar Ferreira at Fight Night 105 in February.

Angela Hill vs. Ashley Yoder UFC betting preview
Weight class: Middle

Odds for fans who bet on UFC:
Angela Hill – 2½ (-190) -280 
Ashley Yoder – 2½ (+165) +240

‘Overkill’ Hill went invicta in Invicta, winning her four fights with the all-female promotion. However, she picked up in UFC right where she left off; more specifically, with a loss to Jéssica Andrade at Fight Night 104 in February – and while both were awarded Fight of the Night honours, that probably was of little consolation to Hill. She is an alumnus of The Ultimate Fighter: A Champion Will Be Crowned (aka TUF 20).

‘Spider Monkey’ Yoder similarly lost her UFC debut – a unanimous decision loss to Justine Kish at Fight Night 102 December 9, 2016 – following a four-fight winning streak in BAMMA USA and Invicta FC. Yoder appeared in the The Ultimate Fighter: Team Joanna vs. Team Cláudia (aka TUF 23).
