MMA Files gives you 6 winners from each UFC event with ‘Six of the Best: Betting Tips’. This event we have to dissect is UFC 199: Rockhold vs Bisping 2 which takes place on Sunday (Australian time).

Dominick Cruz ($1.19) vs Urijah Faber ($4.30)

Faber is a veteran who has a chance at UFC gold and a 2-1 all time record against Cruz. I’m not sure he will get a hold of Cruz and Cruz will hit and move his way to a title defence.

Winner – Dominick Cruz

Max Holloway ($1.29) vs Ricardo Lamas ($3.62)

Lamas is always near the top of the featherweight division. He looked great in his last fight against Diego Sanchez. Holloway has so many skills and is close to his turn at the belt. He has to beat everyone in the division to get there and I think he continues his run in this fight.

Winner – Max Holloway

Dan Henderson ($4.20) vs Hector Lombard ($1.24)

Lombard recently suffered a TKO loss to Neil Magny where he took an excessive number of blows to the head. Henderson has that devastating right hand and with Lombard’s forward-moving style this will present opportunities to unload. This fight could be brutal and I think Lombard can reverse his fortunes in this one.

Winner – Hector Lombard

Bobby Green ($2.53) vs Dustin Poirier ($1.52)

Green hasn’t fought in a while and is a tough opponent for anyone. His last start loss was to Edson Barbosa which broke an eight-fight win streak. Poirier is a finisher and has found a new home at lightweight. Expect a violent encounter with Poirier edging out Green.

Winner – Dustin Poirier

Jessica Andrade ($2.15) vs Jessica Penne ($1.70)

Penne was beaten up by Joanna Jedrzejczyk but showed tremendous heart in that fight. Andrade will be looking to do the same on the feet because going to the ground with Penne will be trouble because she has excellent BJJ. Andrade is fighting at strawweight for the first time in the UFC and thinks she can be stronger in this weight class. I think this gives her the advantage in this fight and she gets a result in her favour.

Winner – Jessica Andrade

Tom Breese ($1.81) vs Sean Strickland ($2.00)

Breese has looked great in his young MMA career so far. He has heavy hands and is big for the division. Strickland is very crafty and well-rounded. This be a tough contest and I think Strickland can use his experience to get the victory.

Winner – Sean Strickland
