Josh_BarnettUFC on FOX 18 Date: January 30, 2016 Arena: Prudential Center City: Newark, NJ The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Newark, NJ for the seventh time in promotional history with UFC on FOX 18: Johnson vs Bader.

The ‘Fight of the Night’ plays that hold the most value are: Johnson/Bader +350 || .5 to win 1.75u If this five round light heavyweight main event makes it out of the first round, I think it would stand a decent chance of taking home the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ honors. I would normally not favor these 205-pounders to take home the bonus, but on this particular card which appears to be short on barn-burners, I think this scrap stands a good shot. This is an important fight for both light heavyweights, as a win could put them next in line for a shot at the 205-pound title. Should “Rumble” and Bader manage to take home the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus, it would mean the second time for Johnson, as he earned one back in 2009 in a losing effort to Josh Koscheck; and for Bader, it would be his first. Barnett/Rothwell +550 || .5u to win 2.75u If this fight is remotely entertaining, I think it will stand a very good chance of taking home the prize. Barnett and Rothwell are both generally two heavyweights who are fun to watch. Both of them are big fan favorites and they are likely to put on a show when they enter the Octagon this evening; both of them being natural show-men. The fact that this is a heavyweight bout increases the chances of this play hitting, as it is no secret that Dana White is known to favor heavyweight bouts, especially when it comes down to handing out bonuses. When two big men go to war and it doesn’t end early, they are almost always a lock to take home the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ honors. On a card like this that isn’t exactly stacked with scraps that have firework-potential, I think these big boys can each be $50,000 richer after tonight. Should they take home the evening’s bonus, it would mean the first time for both heavyweight veterans.
