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 85: Hunt vs Mir which takes place on Sunday (Australian time).

Mark Hunt ($1.66) vs Frank Mir ($2.20)

Mir is so dangerous on the ground and will be keen to get it there quickly and finish it even quicker. I don’t believe it will ever go to the ground and Hunt delivers a punishing blow on the feet to get the victory.

Winner – Mark Hunt

Hector Lombard ($1.80) vs Neil Magny ($2.00)

Magny will be able to stifle Lombard on the feet and control this fight with his range. It will be very close but I feel Lombard may be able to score enough hard shots to grasp the advantage.

Winner – Hector Lombard

Johnny Case ($1.90) vs Jake Matthews ($1.90)

Case is looking to keep his amazing run going and has all the skills to generate significant offense against Matthews. I think that Matthews will come in and give his most complete performance ever to snatch the win.

Winner – Jake Matthews

Mark Eddiva ($2.70) vs Dan Hooker ($1.50)

Eddiva is very game and enjoys to strike which will produce a battle on the feet. I feel this favours Hooker who can be devastating on the feet and will produce the goods to get his hand raised.

Winner – Dan Hooker

Viscardi Andrade ($2.00) vs Richard Walsh ($1.80)

Andrade has won two of three in the UFC and is a strong competitor. If Walsh is to win he needs to put in a full three round performance of high pressure and I feel he does this to get his hand raised.

Winner – Richard Walsh

Chad Laprise ($1.80) vs Ross Pearson ($2.00)

A barn-burning boxing matchup could go either way but i feel Ross Pearson has the slight edge and will score enough heavy blows to be the victor.

Winner – Ross Pearson
