UFC on FOX Sports 1: Trinaldo v HallmannUFC 198 Date: May 14, 2016 Arena: Arena da Baixada City: Curitiba, Parana, Brazil The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heads to Curitiba, Parana, Brazil tonight (May 14, 2016) with UFC 198: Werdum vs Miocic. The incredibly stacked 12-fight card kicks off on UFC Fight Pass at 6:15pm ET, with preliminary action continuing on FOX Sports 1 at 8pm ET, and the main card getting going at 10pm ET on Pay Per View. 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: Trinaldo/Medeiros +650 || .5 to win 3.25u I think this is going to be a fun match-up in the UFC’s lightweight division between a pair of 155-pounders who are generally high-action fighters.Both Trinaldo and Medeiros like to move forward and implement their offense on their opponents. Trinaldo is currently riding a very impressive five fight winning streak and will be looking to make it six in a row against the Hawaiian, who is coming off a controversial split decision win over John Makdessi at UFC 194 last December. At the current offering price tag of +650, I think this play is worth a stab. Should these 155-pounders end up taking the bonus, it would be the first time for both. Moicano/Tukhugov +550 || .5u to win 2.75u This is likely to be an entertaining scrap in the UFC’s featherweight division, withboth 145-pounders looking to remain undefeated inside the Octagon and gain relevancy in the division with an impressive victory. Moicano and Tukhugov will likely each be looking to put the other away one way or another, which is often a good recipe for fireworks. At the current offering price tag of +550, I do think this play is worth a stab. It is the very first fight on the entire UFC 198 fight card, and I think there’s a fairly good chance that it gets the show started on a high-note. Should Moicano and Tukhugov end up taking home the evening’s ‘Fight of the Night’ honors, it would mean the first time for both featherweight fighters.
