Ryan LaFlareUFC 208: Holm vs. De Randamie Date: February 11, 2017 Arena: Barclays Center City: Brooklyn, NY The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is in Brooklyn, NY for the first time in promotional history this Saturday (February 11, 2017) with UFC 208: Holm vs. De Randamie, which will crown the UFC’s inaugural women’s featherweight champion. The 12-fight card is scheduled to get started with UFC Fight Pass prelims at 6:30 p.m. ET.

If interested in wagering on any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available to you at Several Bookmakers. Here is my parlay: Lightweight bout: Islam Makhachev (-260) vs. Nik Lentz (+220) Gabe’s Thoughts: Lentz is predominantly a grappler, and a talented one at that, but I think he is going to be outmatched in that department by Makhachev, who will be the bigger and stronger fighter heading into this 155-pound contest. I think Makhachev will also hold an advantage on the feet, so I see him getting the better of “The Carney” whether this fight stays standing or if it takes place on the canvas. I believe this is Makhachev’s fight to lose and see him coming out with his hand raised on Saturday night. I can see Makhachev finishing this fight by either T/KO or submission, but I do think a victory on the judges’ scorecards is the most likely outcome for the 25-year-old. Gabe’s Call: Makhachev by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Welterweight bout: Ryan LaFlare (-265) vs. Roan Carneiro (+225) Gabe’s Thoughts: LaFlare versus Carneiro is a grappler versus grappler matchup in the UFC’s welterweight division, and I do see it taking place primarily on the mat. It is LaFlare’s wrestling against Carneiro’s Jiu-Jitsu, and I think LaFlare will find success with his wrestling and top position while avoiding the Brazilian’s submission attempts. I think LaFlare out-grapples Carneiro for the majority of three rounds in this 170-pound contest en route to picking up a unanimous-decision victory on the judges’ scorecards. A finish would not surprise me, but I do think a win on the cards is the most likely outcome here for the Long Island native. Gabe’s Call: LaFlare by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Makhachev (-260) and LaFlare (-265) at -111 All of my content and plays are free.
