Your Best Bets for UFC Fight Night 78’s ‘Fight of the Night’

Neil MagnyUFC Fight Night 78 Date: November 21, 2015 Arena: Arena Monterrey City: Monterrey, Mexico The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heads to Monterrey, Mexico for the first time in promotional history with UFC Fight Night 78: Gastelum vs Magny. The event will feature 11 bouts in entirety, leading off with Fight Pass prelims at 6:30pm ET, with FOX Sports 1 prelims to follow at 8pm ET and the main card to get going at 10pm ET on the same channel. If interested in wagering on these ‘FOTN’ props or any other plays for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at Several Bookmakerss. The ‘Fight of the Night’ plays that hold the most value are: Gastelum/Magny +450 || .5u to win 2.25u If this fight ends up going the distance or close to it, I think there is a good chance we will have been treated to a real main event war between these welterweights here. I think they are both ready and willing to go five rounds, and with both of them generally being fighters who are fun to watch, I think they are going to both be on top of their games and deliver the fireworks this evening. Gastelum is back at 170-pounds and looked good making weight yesterday, and with a win over Magny in front of his fellow Mexicans this evening, he hopes to make a run with his sights set on the promotion’s welterweight title. After having an impressive seven fight winning streak snapped by Demian Maia, Magny returned to the win column with a split decision victory over Erick Silva, and as a short notice injury replacement for Matt Brown, he plans to score an upset win over Gastelum and cement himself as a legitimate contender in the division. Should these welterweights put on a show and walk away with the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus, it would mean the first time for both fighters. Sanchez/Lamas +700 || 1u to win 7u This is my personal favorite to take home the ‘Fight of the Night’ honors this evening at UFC Fight Night 78 in Monterrey. Sanchez made his promotional debut at 185-pounds and he now makes his 145-pound debut heading into this scrap against fellow Mexican Lamas. It will be a Mexican vs Mexican showdown in Mexico and I expect both men to bring it. I expect this fight to be a real barn-burner, because not only do both fighters usually put on exciting fights, but they are both currently very hungry for a win. Sanchez dropped to featherweight following a contoversial split decision victory over Ross Pearson and he really wants to make a statement at 145-pounds. Lamas was stopped by fellow top ranked featherweight Chad Mendes in the first round of action in his latest Octagon outing. Should these warriors take home the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ honors, it would be the eight time for Sanchez, while being the very first for Lamas.
