Jake Matthews (-300) Alexander Volkanovski (-160) - (+117)
Jake Matthews vs Andrew Holbrook
Matthews is just the better athlete with more tools in his game. Holbrook doesn't have the athleticism or skills to match Matthews. Matthews by submission.
Alexander Volkanovski vs Yusuke Kasuya
Kasuya has issues stopping power and wrestling where Volkanovski has edges in these departments against him. Volkanovski has the slightly better skills and should out point and out wrestle Kasuya. Volkanovski by decision.

Under 2 1/2 rounds (+105)
Robert Whittaker vs Derek Brunson Under 2 1/2 Rounds
Brunson has been on a finishing tear and Whittaker is a absolute technical striker with power to finish. I only see this fight going as Brunson catches Whittaker with strikes while he comes forward a lot or Whittaker lands a huge counter strike because Brunson likes to over extend too much on a straight line and can be knocked out because of this.
|Under 2 1/2 rounds - Straight Bet|
Robert Whittaker defeats Derek Brunson via TKO (head kick and punches) at 4:07 of round 1.
