TUF 17 Finale: Faber vs. Jorgensen
Now that The Ultimate Fighter finalists have been determined action on the upcoming Season 17 Finale fight card is available at numerous sportsbooks. Moneyline options are out on six main card fights, including the main event between Scott Jorgensen and Urijah Faber.
Faber is still considered one of the best in the world at Bantamweight and is expected to be too much for Jorgensen to handle. Currently handicapped as an MMA odds -450 favorite at Bovada, Faber will hold edges in striking, grappling, and technique.
Jorgensen is a tough fighter with heavy hands who will need to close the distance to have any success against the former champion. He will pay as much as +360 at 5Dimes but the upset option in this particular matchup is ill-advised.
Heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga and Travis Browne will face each other to remain relevant in the division. Browne is currently a heavy UFC odds -320 favorite at 5Dimes, while the Gonzaga upset will pay +240.
This bout looks like the best line on the The Ultimate Fighter 17 finale fight card to pay out an upset option, especially if Gonzaga can get the fight to the ground and work his elite jiu-jitsu skills for a potential submission victory.
The ladies will make an appearance on the TUF 17 finale fight card when former champion Miesha Tate faces Cat Zingano in a No. 1 contender match. The winner gets a shot at Ronda Rousey’s new UFC Female Bantamweight title, so this promises to be an entertaining battle.
Closely handicapped, Tate is a slight underdog at -110 while the undefeated Zingano comes with a UFC odds price of -130 at 5Dimes. Zingano has been a wrecking machine thus far in her fighting career but she takes a big step up in competition against Tate.
