UFC Fight Night 139: Rodriguez vs. Jung (Main Card)
We have barely had time to recover from UFC 230 last weekend, but since the UFC waits for no-one, we need to start looking ahead to UFC Fight Night 139, which will take place in Denver this coming Saturday, November 10.
The main card, which features 6 big fights, is set to start at 10 PM EST, and you can catch all the action on FS1. There are a lot of fights to cover here, so let’s get right to it.
Mike Trizano (+230) vs. Luis Pena (-272)
We get the ball rolling with what looks to be a very good Lightweight bout. Luis Pena comes into this one as the favorite after going unbeaten in his first 5 fights. He does his best work on the mat, with the majority of his wins coming via submission.
He may be forced to go the distance against the 8-0 Trizano, a fighter that has made a habit of winning by decision. Expect a lot of grappling here and a UD win for Pena.
Maycee Barber (-414) vs. Hannah Cifers (+329)
It will be the ladies who are up next for a Strawweight fight that might well be over before we ever get to hear the final bell. Barber comes in with a 4-0 record and a penchant for getting her opponents on the ground as quickly as possible.
She does here best work there and will be able to avoid the hard hits of Cifers (8-2), who has won 63 % of her fights via KO. I like Barber to take control early and win by submission.
Joseph Benavidez (-116) vs. Ray Borg (+103)
As you can clearly see by the betting odds for this one, the bookies have this Flyweight bout in as a bit of a toss-up. Both of these men are at their best when they are on the mat with over half of Borgs 11 wins coming via submission.
Joseph Benavidez comes in with a 25-5 record, but he tends to see his fights go the distance. I would not be surprised to see that happen here, as these two are evenly matched. I am Borg to win by decision.
Raquel Pennington (+150) vs. Germaine de Randamie (-170)
It’s another battle between the ladies, with this one being a Bantamweight bout that features a pair of women ranked in the top 5 in their division. Pennington tends to be a little up and down, coming into this bout with a 9-7 record. Compare that to de Randamie, who has a 7-3 record and who gets almost half of her wins by KO.
This is another that could go the distance, although I think de Randamie might just land a killer blow late in this one.
Donald Cerrone (+175) vs. Mike Perry (-210)
One of UFC’s favorite sons, Donald Cerrone, will be hitting the Octagon this weekend with a career mark of 33-11. He is one of the best Welterweights to ever step in the Octagon, but he will have a fight on his hands here, as Perry comes in with a decent career record of 12-3 and a reputation as a big hitter.
This would be a signature win for Perry, but I have a feeling that he is going to lose to the veteran here.
Chan Sung Jung (-138) vs. Yair Rodriguez (+123)
It’s a pair of top-rated Featherweight fighters who will be going head to head in the main event. Jung is currently ranked #10 in the division and comes in with a career mark of 14-4.
His challenger here is the #15 ranked Rodriguez, who comes in at 11-2. This is another fight that looks set to go the distance, as it’s another one that features evenly matched fighters. I am giving the slight edge to Jung.
