UFC on FX Odds: Jung vs Poirier

On May 15 MMA betting fans will get another free UFC fight card, and sportsbooks are already offering action on two of the UFC on Fuel TV bouts.
 

The main event will feature one of the top Featherweight prospects as Dustin Poirier returns to the Octagon riding a five-fight win streak.

Poirier will face Korean sensation Chan Sung Jung in what should be a high-intensity battle. Poirier should be able to stand with his Korean opponent and will surely dominate if the fight goes to the ground. For this reason oddsmakers at 5Dimes currently have UFC odds of -340 on Poirier to win.

Jung beat UFC odds of +475 in his last fight against Mark Hominick at UFC 140 and will be hoping to utilize his striking skills to beat Bovada odds of +265 against Poirier.

 

It’s tough to gauge where Jung belongs in the division, but if he can counter-strike Poirier the way he did Hominick we could see another surprising upset.

MMA betting action is also available on the Donald Cerrone vs. Jeremy Stephens fight on the UFC on Fuel TV card. Stephens is a former title contender but has gone 4-4 in his last eight fights.
 

He is currently handicapped as the +220 underdog at Bovada and should be worth a little more considering his opponent.

Cerrone was on a six-fight win streak against some of the best Lightweights in the division before he ran into Nate Diaz in his last Octagon appearance. Oddsmakers at 5Dimes currently have a -240 price on Cerrone to beat Stephens.

Cerrone will look to keep the fight standing where he will dominate with superior striking and pressure. Stephens will be forced to utilize his grappling skills and attempt to take the fight to the ground and control his opponent from top position.
