Live Dogs for UFC Fight Night 95 in Brasilia

Gregor GillespieUFC Fight Night 95: Cyborg vs Lansberg Date: September 24, 2016 Arena: Nilson Nelson Gymnasium City: Brasilia, Brazil The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be back in Brasilia, Brazil this Saturday night (September 24, 2016) for UFC Fight Night 95: Cyborg vs Lansberg. The 13-fight card is set to kick off with prelims at 6:30 p.m. ET on UFC Fight Pass and the preliminary action will continue on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m., with the main card being on the same channel at 10 p.m. If interested in wagering on these plays, or any plays for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at Several Bookmakers. Here are my live dogs: Featherweight bout: Godofredo Pepey (-150) vs. Mike De La Torre (+130) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think Pepey needs a finish in this fight, and he needs it early. Should he fail to catch De La Torre early in this contest, I think he is going to end up losing a decision and possibly being stopped with strikes. He does not have a very good chin, so I think De La Torre is capable of shutting his lights off. I think the first round of this bout is a toss-up, but I favor De La Torre to pick up the second and third for a unanimous-decision victory, should this bout find it’s way to the judges’ scorecards for a decision. The MMA Lab product De La Torre plans to make it two in a row for himself inside the Octagon by traveling to Brasilia and defeating the Brazilian on enemy territory. Gabe’s Call: De La Torre by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Play: De La Torre (+130) 2u to win 2.6u Lightweight bout: Glaico Franca (-130) vs. Gregor Gillespie (+110) Gabe’s Thoughts: Putting it simply, I think Gillespie’s superior wrestling will be the difference in this 155-pound contest. I see him taking Franco down and controlling him on the mat en route to a unanimous-decision victory on the judges’ scorecards. I can see him winning this fight inside the distance, but I think he is more likely to take it on the scorecards. Even considering it is his Octagon debut, I think Gillespie should be a -190 betting favorite heading into this contest, so I see value in him at his current underdog price of +110. Gabe’s Call: Gillespie by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Gillespie (+110) 3u to win 3.3u
