Here are my initial thoughts on the Opening Odds for LFA 99:

  • The main event of LFA 99 sees Myron Dennis (18-7) take on Fabio Cherant (6-1) for the vacant LFA light heavyweight title. The 31-year-old Dennis is a 10-year veteran of MMA and he has fought for a number of promotions including Bellator, Glory Kickboxing, and The Ultimate Fighter. He even has a notable win over current UFC fighter Danilo Marques, and he is currently riding a three-fight win streak heading into this fight. Though Dennis has yet to make it to the big show, winning the LFA light heavyweight title might be just what the doctor ordered. Standing in the way of his UFC dreams is Cherant, a 26-year-old Joe Lauzon disciple. Cherant lost to current UFC fighter Aleksa Camur on Dana White’s Contender Series two years ago but he has won his last two fights to get this opportunity. With so much on the line, I am expecting a great fight here, but I have to go with Dennis based on his experience.
  • In the co-main event, Brant Moore (8-1) faces off against Ago Huskic (8-2) The 26-year-old Moore is a longtime LFA veteran who has won his last six fights in a row, including a decision over former UFC fighter Joe Giannetti in his last fight. As for Huskic, the 26-year-old American is riding a three-fight win streak into this bout, which is his LFA debut. Considering how much more experience Moore has in the LFA cage, it’s not surprising to see him as a big favorite.
  • At 185lbs, we have Cody Brundage (5-1) against Joseph Kropschot (4-1). The 25-year-old Brundage was an undefeated prospect heading into his last fight against William Knight on Dana White’s Contender Series. After a quick start to the fight, the tides quickly changed and he was finished. The way he gassed out so quickly is certainly concerning going forward, but we did see how much power Brundage has in that fight as well. In this fight, he takes on Kropschot, who is also a 25-year-old prospect coming off of his first career loss. That defeat came against current UFC fighter Orion Cosce two years ago, so Kropschot is entering this fight off of a very long layoff. He had two fights in 2020 canceled due to COVID-19, so it’s not his fault that he’s been off for so long, but the layoff is concerning nonetheless. I really like the matchmaking here as it’s two middleweight prospects who need to bounce back in a big way. My lean is towards Brundage but I’m curious to see what the outcome is regardless.
