UFC Fight Night: MacDonald vs. Thompson
|Date:||June 18, 2016|
|Venue:||TD Place Arena|
|City:||Ottawa, Ontario, Canada|
Elias Theodorou (-250) Ali Bagautinov (-235) - (+100)
Ali Bagautinov vs Geane Herrera
The sambo of Ali is tough to deal with and Herrera likes to be too aggressive which can find him in the danger zone of Ali's skills. Ali has better athleticism, speed, and technique so i feel he takes a decision.
Elias Theodorou vs Sam Alvey
Elias has the mid range game to use kicks and punches to stay on the outside of Alvey so he doesn't land a big punch. Elias is super tough and is better athletically. Elias will take a decision by out striking Alvey.
|Elias Theodorou (-250) Ali Bagautinov (-235) - Parlay Bet|
Ali Bagautinov defeats Geane Herrera via Decision (unanimous) (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).
Elias Theodorou defeats Sam Alvey via Decision (unanimous) (29-28, 30-27, 30-27).
Stephen Thompson (+105)
Rory MacDonald vs Stephen Thompson
Wonderboy has improved on his wrestling a lot and I don't see Rory diving for take downs consistently which means the fight most likely stays standing. If the fight stays standing like i believe Wonderboy has the clear advantage and should out strike Rory to win a decision.

Olivier Aubin-Mercier (-320)
Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs. Thibault Gouti
OAM is a way better grappler and athlete so it would be surprising if he was to lose this.I don't think Gouti game plays well vs a grappler like OAM because Gouti is very limited when it comes to facing grapplers so its a big disadvantage. OAM by submission.
