The ‘Fight of the Night’ plays that hold the most value are: Ham/Taylor +900 || .5u to win 4.5u – Seo Hee Ham and Danielle Taylor are both coming off losses and will be looking to get back into the win column with an impressive victory this evening. This is an important fight for both ladies, who generally deliver exciting performances, so I expect them to leave it all inside the Octagon when they square off to kick off the evening’s main card on FOX Sports 1. They are expected to get the main card rolling on a high note and I like their chances of doing just that. I see this bout playing out on the feet and being a fun striking battle between the two stand up fighters. This scrap should be a treat for the fans and I think it stands a decent shot at taking home the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ honors, so at +900, I think it’s worth a shot. Should they manage to take home the bonus, it would be the second time for Ham, while being the first for Taylor. Nguyen/Herrera +600 || 1u to win 6u – This is my top pick and personal favorite to take home the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ honors for UFC Fight Night 101 in Melbourne. I am a fan of both of these flyweights and I think they are both fun to watch. I expect this to be an exciting scrap from start to finish, regardless of how long it lasts. This is a big fight for both 125-pounders, as they are coming off sour defeats and are eager to return to the win column. Should they walk away with the bonus, it would be the first time for both Ben Nguyen and Geanne Herrera. At +600, I think there’s some value here.
