Your Best Bets for the TUF 20 Finale ‘Fight of the Night’

Jessica Penne vs Naho SugiyamaTUF 20 Finale Date: December 12, 2014 Arena: The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort City: Las Vegas, NV The Ultimate Fighter Season 20 Finale will be live from Las Vegas this tonight (Dec. 12, 2014) with 11 scheduled bouts, and the action will be live on FOX Sports 1 at 9pm ET, with preliminary fights preceding it on the same channel at 7pm ET and before that at 6pm ET on UFC Fight Pass. To place a wager on this prop, or any others for UFC 181, you may do so at Several Bookmakerss. I believe these TUF 20 Finale ‘FOTN’ contenders hold the most value: Penne/Markos +500 — Penne is the former Invicta FC atomweight champion who lost her title to Michelle Waterson and then moved up a weight class to compete on season 20 of The Ultimate Fighter reality series, where she made it all the way to the semi-finals. In her semi-final match-up, she lost a unanimous decision to former Invicta FC strawweight champion Carla Esparza after three rounds of action in a very entertaining back and forth scrap. Markos made it all the way to the semi-finals of the tournament, as well, where she took on Rose Namajunas and lost via kimura submission in the first round of action. It was a very close fight until Namajunas got the tap, and in my opinion, it was the most entertaining fight of the entire season, even though it only lasted a few minutes. I think this fight will also be a close one and I expect it to be incredibly entertaining for however long it lasts. Rawlings/Clark +1500 — These two are gonna brawl, and stylistically, I think this fight has the recipe to produce serious fireworks. They are both very tough and like to brawl, so I think that’s what this fight will become. I see it going all three rounds with incredibly entertaining back and forth action throughout. I think this is the fight that has the best chance of having that “Griffin vs Bonnar” effect. I would say Rawlings is the Griffin in this case, as I see her getting the better of Clark over the course of the 15 minutes of action. Clark will have her moments, but I think Rawlings will have more of them, likely doing enough to win every round. I think this is going to be a great fight and this it will have a good chance of taking home the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ honors. There are only two fights on this 11 fight card that I see enough value in to warrant a bet, and this fight holds the absolute most value, though I do believe Penne/Markos has a better chance of taking home the prize, as the odds would suggest.
