UFC betting is once again live this weekend as UFC Fight Night 42 rolls into Albuquerque, New Mexico on Saturday night with a fight card featuring some of the best fighters in the Lightweight and Flyweight divisions. UFC odds are already available on all 11 fights, and there are prop bet options at 5Dimes as well.
In the main event of UFC Fight Night 42 former Lightweight champion Benson Henderson will look to get back into the title shot picture with a win over up-and-coming Russian Sambo fighter Rustam Khabilov. Henderson is currently a UFC odds -245 favorite at 5Dimes, while the Khabilov upset would pay +205.
Henderson is expected to control the action with movement and elusive striking for what should be a decision win. Prop action on Henderson by decision will pay +130, but if you like the upset possibilities on the Russian you might as well go for the big payday of Khabilov inside the distance at +722.
In the co-main event Diego Sanchez gets a chance to perform in front of hometown fans when he steps into the Octagon against Ross Pearson. Despite currently being a UFC odds +160 underdog at 5Dimes, we like the Sanchez upset option in this matchup. The prop option of Sanchez by decision is currently paying +225.
A Pearson win currently comes with a Bovada UFC betting line price of -185, but one would be better off opting for the Pearson wins by decision at +125 if they think he will dominate the striking battle.
Top Flyweight contender John Dodson will look to get past John Moraga at UFC Fight Night 42 to potentially earn another title shot later in the year. He’s currently a heavy UFC betting -500 favorite at Bovada, while the unlikely Moraga upset will pay +400 at 5Dimes on the UFC odds. The most appealing option in this three-round fight is the fight goes to decision prop currently listed at -120.
