The UFC heads to Atlanta on Saturday for the first time since 2012 for UFC 201, and although the event is relatively light in terms of star power, there’s plenty of intriguing wagering options for bettors to take advantage of.
Here’s our breakdown and picks for UFC 201’s main card:
Foi uma péssima noite para a americana Holly Holm. Encarregada de fazer a luta principal do UFC on Fox 20, que aconteceu nesse sábado (23) na cidade de Chicago, em Illinois (EUA), a ex-campeã não foi párea para Valentina Shevchenko e perdeu a sua segunda luta consecutiva no maior torneio de MMA do mundo. No co-main event do show, Edson Barboza confirmou seu favoritismo e bateu Gilbert Melendez por decisão unânime dos juízes.
2015 was a historic year for upsets in the UFC. Seven titles changed hands during the year, and no upset was bigger than Holly Holm’s over the once-invincible Ronda Rousey. For the year, underdogs posted a 180-288 record vs favorites, earning the W in 38.5% of fights. Will 2016 once again be a big year for the underdog, or will the favorites simply do what they’re supposed to do?
After a complete sideshow over the past several months including cancelled bouts, skipped press events and several verbal Stockton Slaps - Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz will square off in the main event of UFC 202. It was at UFC 196 that the younger Diaz brother shocked the world and derailed McGregor’s hype train by submitting him in the second round.
A ex-campeã peso-galo (61 kg) do UFC e responsável por destronar Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm, voltará ao octógono neste sábado (23), quando medirá forças com a russa radicada no Peru Valentina Shevchenko. Válido pelo UFC on Fox 20, o combate lidera o card que será disputado na cidade de Illinois, em Chicago (EUA), e será a chance da americana se recuperar do revés sofrido no começo do ano para Miesha Tate, quando perdeu o título do Ultimate. A noite de lutas também conta com enorme participação de brasileiros no show.
The future of the women’s bantamweight division hangs in the balance when Holly Holm and Valentina Shevchenko clash at UFC on Fox 20. The United Center in Chicago, Illinois will also play host to an impressive lightweight clash between Edson Barboza and Gilbert Melendez.

Pela primeira vez em um confronto principal, brasileiro não deu chances para Michael McDonald, que ficou de pé por menos de três minutos no octógono
Ele não é conhecido como “Mãos de Pedra” à toa. Aos 2m43s do primeiro round, John Lineker nocauteou o norte-americano Michael McDonald na luta principal do UFC Fight Night 91, disputado, na noite de quarta-feira (13/7), em Sioux Falls (EUA). Foi a maior vitória da carreira do lutador paranaense, que superou, de forma arrasadora, o número cinco da categoria peso-galo (até 61kg).
For decades, combat sports observers have attempted to pin a Best Pound-For-Pound Fighter label on someone. Whether it was Tyson in his heyday, Roy Jones in numerous weight classes - hell, even wrestling has their supermatch arguments - fans have wanted to crown one fighter as the best. It’s the same for MMA, with even more heated debate as the UFC now dwarfs boxing in popularity.
Brock Lesnar stormed into UFC 200, took care of business and then promptly went on back to the WWE. However, the speculation about Lesnar’s return to the Octagon is already running rampant.
Online book, Bovada has posted odds as to whether ‘The Beast’ will make his return before the end of the year. Brock fighting for the UFC before the end of 2016 is listed at +140 with ‘No’ coming back at -200.
