By Owen Phillips 17/2/16
MMA Files will try to find you 6 winners from each UFC event with ‘Six of the Best: Betting Tips’. Let’s take a look at UFC Fight Night 83: Cerrone vs. Oliveira which takes place on Monday (Australian time).
Donald Cerrone ($1.33) vs. Alex Oliveira ($3.40)
Oliveira will be very game is this fight. I can see him being able to survive quite well but I feel that Cerrone will wear him down in the later rounds and get his hand raised.
Winner – Donald Cerrone
Oluwale Bamgbose ($2.50) vs. Daniel Sarafian ($1.57)
Bamgbose will be in Sarafian’s face from the start and will try to get the KO. I feel Sarafian survives the tough moments and gets the ‘W’.
Winner – Daniel Sarafian
Chris Camozzi ($1.40) vs. Joe Riggs ($3.00)
Riggs will keen for a ‘real’ win after his last opponent was disqualified for an illegal up-kick. Camozzi will look to pick him apart on feet and do enough damage to get past a well-rounded opponent.
Winner – Chris Camozzi
Derek Brunson ($1.28) vs. Roan Carneiro ($3.75)
Both Brunson and Carneiro have solid win-streaks going of three and six respectively. Carneiro is an animal on the ground and Brunson has technical striking. I feel Brunson keeps the fight standing and delivers enough punishment to continue his run of success.
Winner – Derek Brunson
Ashlee Evans-Smith ($2.40) vs. Marion Reneau ($1.58)
Evans-Smith has had some time off for use of a banned substance. Her strengths are her wrestling and she will want to get the takedown and utilise some ground and pound. Reneau has some reasonable striking but favours a ground battle to lock up a submission. In her last fight against Holly Holm she could not lay a finger on her. There will be more of an opportunity against Evans-Smith so I give the edge to Reneau in a close fight.
Winner – Marion Reneau
Shamil Abdurakhimov ($1.80) vs. Anthony Hamilton ($2.00)
Abdurakhimov will use his wrestling and try to do damage with top control. Hamilton will look to catch him with his heavy hands and I feel he is able to land a fight ending strike.
Winner – Anthony Hamilton
If you are going to have a bet, make sure it’s fun and stop if it’s stressful.
