The Heavyweight matchup between Stefan Struve and Mark Hunt offers a few interesting UFC betting options. Struve will surely look to take this fight to the ground and take out Hunt with grappling and jiu-jitsu skills.
Parlay the 5Dimes -170 win option on Struve with the -115 “inside the distance” and the -250 “not Hunt inside the distance” options and the Struve value improves.
Hunt will need to land a power shot to win this fight, and if he can close the distance on Struve that outcome has a good chance of occurring. Hunt will currently pay UFC odds of +155 at 5Dimes, and if you like him in this matchup the Hunt “inside the distance” prop option is also at -115.
UFC on Fuel TV 8 will also see the return of Diego Sanchez to the Octagon following more than a year on the sidelines. Sanchez is a big Bovada -300 favorite and should have little difficulty steamrolling Gomi for a KO or a submission win. The Gomi upset option of +250 at 5Dimes looks a little slim against a fighter with the skill level of Sanchez.
