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 86: Rothwell vs Dos Santos which takes place on early Monday morning (Australian time).

Ben Rothwell ($2.05) vs Junior Dos Santos ($1.78)

Dos Santos has so much power when he connects but I feel Rothwell has too many tricks and will get the job done.

Winner – Ben Rothwell

Gabriel Gonzaga ($2.28) vs Derrick Lewis ($1.63)

Veteran Gonzaga has a lot of ways to finish the fight and will be a handful for Lewis. I think Lewis can display his best form to get his hand raised and it could be brutal.

Winner – Derrick Lewis

Jan Blachowicz ($1.29) vs Igor Pokrajac ($3.62)

This will be a close fight and Blachowicz is a solid fighter but I feel Pokrajac gets the win on his UFC return.

Winner – Igor Pokrajac

Zak Cummings ($2.08) vs Nicolas Dalby ($1.74)

Dalby is so hard to put away and Cummings will have to use all of his skills to finish on top. I think Dalby survives some tough moments and gets the ‘W’.

Winner – Nicolas Dalby

Ian Entwistle ($1.71) vs Alejandro Perez ($2.14)

This one is hard to pick but I fell Entwistle can grapple his way to victory over a competitive Perez.

Winner – Ian Entwistle

Lucas Martins ($1.81) vs Robert Whiteford ($2.00)

Martins has struggled in his last two fights against tough opponents and will be very hungry for the win. Whiteford has a similar loss against Darren Elkins as Martins. This be a fun fight and I’m picking Martins to have the advantage.

Winner – Lucas Martins
