Fights to Avoid Betting for UFC Fight Night 101 in Melbourne

Omari-AkhmedovUFC Fight Night 101: Whittaker vs Brunson Date: November 26, 2016 Arena: Rod Laver Arena City: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heads to Melbourne, Victoria, Australia for the second time in promotional history with UFC Fight Night 101: Whittaker vs Brunson. The event will be featuring a 13-fight card that is set to kick off with preliminary action on UFC Fight Pass at 6:30pm, and prelims will continue on FOX Sports 1 at 8pm, which will culminate into the main card on the same channel at 10pm. If interested in wagering on any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at Several Bookmakers. My Fights to AVOID betting are: Welterweight bout: Kyle Noke (+155) vs Omari Akhmedov (-175) Gabe’s Thoughts: Akhmedov is taking traveling to enemy territory to take this fight on short notice, replacing an injured Dominique Steele. He is coming off a third round TKO loss to Elizeu Zaleski is looking to get back into the win column. Noke is coming off a second round rear naked choke submission loss to Neita Nakamura and is in dire need of victory himself. Noke versus Akhmedov is a fight between two Jackson-Wink MMA welterweights and I am unsure if either of them has left the gym. This is just a very weird match-up all around in my book and I can’t trust either fighter with my cash. I’m gonna have to avoid this one at the sportsbook this weekend. Gabe’s Call: Akhmedov by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Play: AVOID Flyweight bout: Ben Nguyen (+115) vs Geanne Herrera (-135) Gabe’s Thoughts: I agree with the current betting odds in that this is a very close fight. I don’t think there is any betting value in either flyweight, so I think this scrap is best staying away from at the sportsbook come Saturday night. Gabe’s Call: Herrera by Split Decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Play: AVOID
