Gabe Killian’s One-Liners for UFC Fight Night 59 in Boston

Dennis SiverIn one line, I will be providing my own personal description for every fight ahead of us at Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 59 in Boston. I will also be following the Twitter rule of thumb of keeping them in 140 characters or less. Sunday night’s 12-fight card includes a four-fight main card that will be live on FOX Sports 1 at 10pm ET, a six-fight preliminary card that will precede it on the same channel at 7pm ET, and preceding those will be a pair of scraps on UFC Fight Pass at 6pm ET. If interested in wagering on any of the bouts on this fight card, all of the lines will be made available to you at Several Bookmakerss. And without further ado, here are my one-liners for UFC Fight Night 59 in Boston… MAIN CARD (FOX SPORTS 1) Conor McGregor (-1200) vs Denis Siver (+775) A match-up tailor-made for McGregor to win, and he should; hence the betting line. Benson Henderson (-135) vs Donald Cerrone (+115) This third fight in the trilogy between these two should do nothing but produce fireworks, proving edge-of-your-seat entertainment. Urijah Hall (-900) vs Ron Stallings (+500) Stallings is stepping up on one week’s notice to take on Hall in what is the biggest test of his career, and one he isn’t likely to pass. Norman Parke (+120) vs Gleison Tibau (-150) Tibau again finds himself playing the role of “gatekeeper” in this match-up, so it will tell us whether Parke has Top-15 potential or not. PRELIMINARY CARD (FOX SPORTS 1) Cathal Pendred (+140) vs Sean Spencer (-160) The Irishman looks to please the Boston crowd with an upset of Spencer, and having made a career out of upsets, he finds himself at home. John Howard (+130) vs Lorenz Larkin (-150) Howard looks for another win in his hometown, Larkin looks to make a run in his new weight class and they both look to save their contracts. Chris Wade (-450) vs Zhang Lipeng (+360) As -450 suggests, Wade should run through Lipeng, and after doing so in impressive fashion, he will earn a bigger fight for his next outing. Patrick Holohan (-265) vs Shane Howell (+225) This is the fight with the most question marks surrounding it, and the outcome will hopefully provide all the answers for both fighters. Frankie Perez (+155) vs Johnny Case (-175) A real scrap between a pair of talented 155-pounders in what will likely be a serious contender for the night’s ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus. Charles Rosa (-140) vs Sean Soriano (+120) A fight between two featherweights who have a lot of potential in the division, and from start to finish, I expect them to both bring it. PRELIMINARY CARD (UFC FIGHT PASS) Matt Van Buren (+158) vs Sean O’Connell (-180) The one match-up on the entire UFC Fight Night 59 fight card that I look forward to the least. Joby Sanchez (-160) vs Tateki Matsuda (+140) A chance for two solid 125-pound prospects to make a run in the division in what will likely be a very entertaining fight to start the card.
