TUF 24 FINALE Date: December 3, 2016 Arena: The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort City: Las Vegas, NV The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back at The Pearl at Palms Casino and Resort in Las Vegas for The Ultimate Fighter Season 24 Finale. The 12-fight card is scheduled to kick off with prelminary action on UFC Fight Pass at 7pm, and prelims will continue on FOX Sports 1 at 8pm and culminate with 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 5Dimes Sportsbook. The ‘Fight of the Night’ plays that hold the most value are: Benavidez/Cejudo +325 || 1u to win 3.25u This is the coaches fight for The Ultimate Fighter Season 24 television reality series, where two Benavidez team-mates ended up facing each-other in the finals, and one of them advancing to challenge UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson for his 125-pound gold. These two had beef throughout the series, with Benavidez appearing to get the better of all the verbal exchanges. After a long build up, they finally get set loose against each other inside the Octagon, and I think they stand a good chance of producing fireworks in the co-main event of the evening. I think +325 is worth a shot here. Should Benavidez and Cejudo walk away with the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus, it would be the first time for both flyweight fighters, and it would be the 14th Octagon appearance for Benavidez, while being the sixth for Cejudo. Benoit/Moreno +695 || 1u to win 7u I got it at +725 and it dropped shortly after, but +695 is just as good. I was hoping to get it at +600 or better and think the line should be +400. Contrary to the odds, I think this flyweight contest has a high chance of producing fireworks, which is why it has been selected to kick off the evening’s main card in Las Vegas. Ryan Benoit and Brandon Moreno are generally exciting fighters who are fun to watch. I expect this 125-pound scrap to be fireworks from start to finish, regardless of how long it lasts or who gets his hand raised. At +695, I think this is the best value to get for this prop. Should Benoit and Moreno manage to earn the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ honors, it would be the second time for Benoit, and the first for Moreno in his second Octagon appearance.
