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 196: Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz which takes place on Sunday (Australian time).

Conor McGregor ($1.20) vs Nate Diaz ($4.50)
Nate Diaz will be a tough opponent and his reach will be a weapon. He has the ability to hurt McGregor but I feel McGregor will have more output and be a bit too creative.

Winner – Conor McGregor

Holly Holm ($1.33) vs Miesha Tate ($3.34)
Holm has high-level striking and can keep Tate at range and do significant damage. Tate is very durable and I think she stays in the fight, competes to the end and wrestles her way to the upset.

Winner – Miesha Tate

Amanda Nunes ($1.81) vs Valentina Shevchenko ($2.00)
Shevchenko is a quality fighter and will push Nunes but I feel that Nunes is going to be a step ahead and get the win.

Winner – Amanda Nunes

Erick Silva ($1.45) vs Nordine Taleb ($2.78)
Taleb is very tough and brings good hands to the fight but I think Erick Silva gets back on track with some new highlights.

Winner – Erick Silva

Jim Miller ($1.71) vs Diego Sanchez ($2.14)
This will be a very close fight. Two fighters looking for the finish and I pick Miller to come out on top.

Winner – Jim Miller

Ilir Latifi ($1.50) vs Gian Villante ($2.61)
Latifi has been looking particularly dangerous recently. Villante is super tough and has some good wins on his resume but I feel Latifi will make it five victories in his last six when he gets his hand raised.

Winner – Ilir Latifi
