Live Dogs for UFC Fight Night 104

Chris GruetzemacherUFC Fight Night 104: Bermudez vs. Korean Zombie Date: February 4, 2016 Arena: Toyota Center City: Houston, TX The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back in Houston, TX for the fifth time in promotional history this Saturday (February 4, 2017) with UFC Fight Night 104: Bermudez vs. Korean Zombie. The 12-fight card kicks off with preliminary action on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. (ET), and the prelims continue on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m., with the main card getting underway at 10 p.m. If interested in wagering on any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available to you at Several Bookmakers. Here are my live dogs: Featherweight bout: Chas Skelly (-250) vs. Chris Gruetzemacher (+210) Gabe’s Thoughts: “Gritz” drops down to the UFC’s 145-pound division after picking up a unanimous decision win over Abner Lloveras in his promotional debut more than a year ago, and he will be looking to make it two in a row for himself inside the Octagon with a win over Skelly. I expect this bout to take place in close distance, where both fighters will be looking to implement their grappling. I see this fight coming down to who spends more time in top position on the mat and pressing their opponent against the cage. I think this featherweight matchup is a lot closer than the betting odds currently suggest, so I see value in “Gritz” at his current underdog price tag of +210. I would normally go bigger on this play, but I am going to opt to stay safe and keep it small, considering the extended layoff. Gabe’s Call: “Gritz” by Split Decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Gruetzemacher (+210) 1u to win 2.1u Bantamweight bout: Michinori Tanaka (-215) vs. Ricardo Ramos (+178) Gabe’s Thoughts: I see this as being a closely contested matchup in the UFC’s 135-pound division. Ramos is the latest “Dana White: Lookin’ for a Fight” fighter to make his way into the big show, and he gets what is the stiffest test of his professional MMA career for his promotional debut in the form of Japan’s Tanaka. I think this is going to be a fun fight, and it is one I could see going either way. I am a fan of Tanaka’s, but I think Ramos is a solid prospect in the UFC’s bantamweight division and capable of pulling off the upset here. I think the odds should be much closer than currently suggested, so I will have to make a value play on the dog here at +178. Gabe’s Call: Ramos by Split Decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Ramos (+178) 1u to win 1.78 All of my content and plays are free. Your support is greatly appreciated.
