Your Best Bets for UFC Fight Night 60’s ‘Fight of the Night’

ElliottLinFighting4-300x200UFC Fight Night 60 Date: 02/14/15 Arena: 1STBank Center City: Broomfield CO The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Colorado on Valentine’s Day with UFC Fight Night 60: Henderson vs Thatch. The event will feature an entirety of 10 fights, including a six-fight main card that will be live on FOX Sports 1 at 10pm. Preliminary action precedes it at 8pm with four fights on the same channel. To place a wager on this prop, or any others for UFC Fight Night 60, you may do so at Several Bookmakerss. I believe these UFC Fight Night 60 ‘FOTN’ contenders hold the most value: Kelades/Borg +550 — As long as there is no early finish in this fight, I think there is a very good chance this could end up being a very entertaining fight, and likely much closer than their betting odds indiciate, as Borg is a massive near nine-to-one favorite over the Canadian. Borg made his promotional debut against Dustin Ortiz and lost the fun back-and-forth scrap by controversial split decision on the judges’ scorecards. He rebounded well in his next outing, scoring a first round submission over Shane Howell, and here he looks to make it three in a row against Kelades. The Canadian made his promotional debut on very short noticed and scored an upset unanimous decision victory over Ireland’s heavily favored Patrick Holohan. Along with the victory, he picked up ‘Fight of the Night’ honors for his performance, and tonight against Borg, he will be looking to repeat history by not only getting his hand raised, but also pocketing another 50k. If these flyweights take home the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus, it would of course be the second time for Kelades, while being the first for Borg. Elliott/Makovsky +400 — Out of all the fights on the entire UFC Fight Night 60 fight card, I think this flyweight scrap has the best chance of producing fireworks. I believe they will both look to leave it all in the cage when they step foot in the Octagon tonight. What I don’t understand is how or why this bout is booked on the bottom of the preliminary card, when it is a more highly anticipated match-up for fight fans than several of the fights on the evening’s main card. Personally, I like this fight more than the co-main event and think it has a greater chance of proving to be entertaining. Regardless of the outcome and whether it lasts a few minutes or goes for all 15, I think this is going to be a very fight fans a gift for fight fans tuning into the preliminary card. Should these talented 125-pounders earn the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ honors, it would be the second time for Elliott, who earned one for his battle against Jared Papazian a little over two years ago. However, it would be the first time for Makovsky.
