The ‘Fight of the Night’ plays that hold the most value are: Caceres/Knight +700 || 1u to win 7u I like the value we were getting with this fight, especially considering the fact that it is the first fight on the main card. Caceres and Knight are both generally exciting fighters who deliver fan friendly performances inside the Octagon, so I think pitting them against each other is a recipe for fireworks. I do expect this to be a fun fight and at +700, I definitely believe it’s worth a shot. Should these featherweights notch the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ honors, it would be the third time for Caceres and the first for Knight. Pantoja/Shelton +750 || 1u to win 7.5u These TUF 24 veterans will be squaring off in their UFC debuts, and despite being the number one seed in the tournament on the reality television series, Pantoja is a slight underdog heading into this contest against Shelton. This is a classic striker versus grappler match-upin the UFC’s flyweight division and I expect these 125-pounders to put on a show this evening. At +750, I do think this play is worth a shot. Should Pantoja and Shelton manage to take home the bonus, it would of course be the first time for both fighters.
