Mirsad BekticUFC 209 Date: March 4, 2017 Arena: T-Mobile Arena City: Las Vegas, NV The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV this Saturday night (March 4, 2017) with UFC 209: Woodley vs. Thompson II.

Preliminary action will then continue on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m., with the main card getting underway at 10 p.m. on Pay-Per-View. If interested in wagering on any UFC 209 bouts, all betting lines will be made available to you at Several Bookmakers. My Over/Under Totals are: Heavyweight bout: Marcin Tybura (-160) vs. Luis Henrique (+140) Gabe’s Thoughts: This is a matchup between two durable heavyweights who are solid finishers in their own rights. A knockout on either end would not surprise me at all in this contest, but I do favor them to fight this out for three rounds of action more often than not. I think Henrique holds value at his current offering price of +140, but I favor the Total of Over 2.5 rounds at +120 more, as I think Tybura is capable of taking this fight on the scorecards too if he is able to keep the fight standing for two out of three rounds. I see Henrique scoring takedowns in every round and ultimately taking home a victory on the judges’ scorecards. Gabe’s Call: Henrique by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Over 2.5 rounds (+120) Featherweight bout:┬áMirsad Bektic (-800) vs. Darren Elkins (+550) Gabe’s Thoughts: Elkins is very tough to put away, but I think Bektic is one of those fighters who is capable of doing that, and it would not surprise me to see him get finished in this contest. I can see Bektic winning this fight by T/KO or submission with a finish coming early. That said, a decision outcome is probably more likely, but the betting value here is definitely with the Total of Under 1.5 rounds at +245. I like Bektic in this contest and personally got him at his opening price of -350, but at the current odds, I would rather just take the Under. Gabe’s Call: Bektic by Submission (guillotine choke, 3:24 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Under 1.5 rounds (+245) Click Here to Make a Donation!
