UFC Preview: UFC Fight Night 77 - Belfort Vs. Henderson 3

UFC Preview: UFC Fight Night 77 - Belfort Vs. Henderson 3

Main Event: Dan Henderson vs. Victor Belfort

Odds: Henderson +300, Belfort -360

In the “rubber match” between two veterans unlikely to face each other again – as Henderson is 45 and Belfort is 38 – Belfort looks to win the series between two former champions. The veterans combine for 55 career victories, but Henderson is 2-5 over his last 7 career fights, including a loss to Belfort in 2013. Belfort sits 4th on the middleweight rankings, while Henderson has slinked down to 12th. Belfort could get another title fight if he wins on Saturday, while Henderson is primarily fighting for pride and to end his career on a high note.

Pick: Belfort

Glover Teixeira vs. Patrick Cummins

Odds: Teixeira -440, Cummins +350

Teixeira, who enters the bout ranked 4th in the light heavyweight division is within striking distance of a title fight if he can win over the 9th ranked Cummins.  Cummins is a highly touted up-and-comer with an 8-2 record in his MMA career and has great defense and strong grappling skills. Cummins should give Teixeira a strong challenge, but Teixeira’s knowledge and experience gives him the edge on Saturday night.

Pick: Teixeira

Alex Oliveira vs. Piotr Hallmann

Odds: Oliveira -200, Hallmann +170

Two relative newcomers to the UFC roster – with Oliveira being 2-1 and Hallmann being 2-3 – square off in one of the more intriguing matches on the card. Hallmann was suspended in 2014, testing positive for a banned substance and lost his return fight due to a doctor’s stoppage. Hallmann had shown promise, but his suspension has led to some uncertainty over how good he actually is. Oliveira began his UFC career with 3 fights in just over 3 months, winning the last two. The match will be close – with a victory through submission a strong prop bet options.

Pick: Hallmann
