Guys & Bets (Episode 260): UFC Fight Night 170 and Bellator Picks

Well, it’s a bit of a different show today given everything that’s transpired in the world of sports the last couple of days. But Joe Osborne, Andrew Avery, Iain MacMillan and Harry Gagnon get together to wrap up the week and discuss their best bets with what’s remaining.

Joe starts off with a UFC tilt in Brazil for UFC Fight Night 170 as Kevin Lee faces off against Brazilian Charles Oliveira at 155 pounds. Oliveira comes into the fight having won his six previous matches, four by submission. Meanwhile, Lee, who is three years younger (27), sports an 18-5 record but has dropped three of his last five fights. Joe has a great stat regarding Oliveira and fighting in Brazil.

Iain has a couple of fight picks from the UFC and Bellator, and his first pick is for the UFC. Demian Maia squares off against Gilbert Burns as part of UFC Fight Night 170. Maia is a cagey vet of the Octagon and has worn down opponents with his ruthless wrestling abilities and Burns could be up next. Though Burns comes into this bout on a four-fight winning streak, the big question is whether he’s ready for someone of Maia’s abilities and Octagon presence.

Iain is also betting on a fight on the Bellator 241 card. Matt Mitrione is replacing Josh Barnett in a heavyweight fight against Ronny Markes. Affectionately known as “Meathead,” Mitrione didn’t hesitate to take on this fight at the last minute with a chance to put on a show.

As always, the show wraps up with a Q&A session for our viewers, so if there’s anything you’ve always wanted to ask, you should be joining us live every weekday at noon ET on our YouTube channel!
