UFC 240 Betting Predictions

Lightweight – Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs Arman Tsarukyan

Aubin-Mercier (11 wins-4 losses) will be one of the Canadians on show at the event and will be full of confidence despite starting as the underdog against his Russian opponent (13-2).

The pair are both strong grapplers with unique striking skills, and both have good records so it is tough to split them in this instance.

If Tsarukyan can get a flying kick in early it could end prematurely, but if Aubin-Mercier gets a foothold in the fight he should be able to win on decision.

We think the latter is more likely – go for Aubin-Mercier (2.90) at the best odds available.

Welterweight – Geoff Neal vs Niko Price

Geoff Neal (11-2) is the favourite here and should win again to continue a winning streak that was recently extended to five victories. His defence is key to his success, and his counter-striking should be too much for Price (13-2) who can be susceptible to these types of attacks.

While Price has the better record, his style will not match up well with Neal, which is why the odds appear as shown.

We’re confident in a Geoff Neal win here (1.37).

Middleweight – Marc-Andre Barriault vs Krzysztof Jotko

The second Canadian on the main card is also an underdog, although this matchup looks to be much closer than any of the other events at UFC 240.

Barriault (11-2) has an imposing stance causes many opponents to back down although this will suit Jotko (20-4) who prefers to bounce around the outside within the cage and wait for his opportunity to strike.

This one is likely to go to a decision, and Polish native Jotko is the more likely to come out on top. Go for Jotko (1.57).

Women’s Featherweight – Cris Cyborg vs Felicia Spencer

Cris Cyborg (20-2) is the heavy favourite here despite coming off her first loss since 2005. This result came after 20 straight wins with 17 knockout victories, so it will be interesting to see if she can bounce back.

It won’t be easy against another Canadian drawcard in Felicia Spencer (7-0), who is undefeated in her short career to date.

Spencer is a great grappler, so considering Cyborg is more of a ‘go hard, go home’ type of fighter this is a bout likely to be over in a hurry.

Given that Spencer hasn’t had to worry too much about defence in her 7 wins, we think this is a test that may be too tough. Go for Cris Cyborg here (1.17).

Featherweight – Max Holloway vs Frankie Edgar

The feature bout is between ”Blessed“ Max Holloway (20-4) and “The Answer” Frankie Edgar (23-6-1), with the latter fighter the firm outsider. Holloway’s fitness and conditioning could be the difference here as he is able to keep up a consistent level of striking and will win most fights that go to a decision.

Edgar does have excellent movement and causes opponents to miss quite often. He is also great when the bout goes to decision having won 12 of 17 when this method is used to decide the fight, so it is an interesting scenario. He has also lost just once by knockout.

While Holloway remains the clear favourite, it’s not going to be as straight-forward as the bookies are predicting. Mind you, we still think that Max Holloway will win this fight (1.25).
