Betting Preview for UFC 260 Featuring Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou and the Other Big Cards on March 27, 2021
Where: UFC APEX, Las Vegas, Nevada
When: Saturday, March 27, 2021
TV Broadcast: UFC PPV, ESPN+
Stipe Miocic (EVEN) vs. Francis Ngannou (-130)
Almost three years since they first fought, Miocic and Ngannou will meet again in a much-awaited rematch that should command heavy attention from hardcore and casual MMA fans alike. Ngannou failed in his first attempt to beat Miocic, who held his ground and earned a unanimous-decision win over the Cameroonian. But Ngannou has been on the rise again, having won all his last four fights, all via knockouts. Miocic, on the other hand, is coming off a unanimous decision win over Daniel Cormier in April of last year.
Stipe Miocic wins via split decision.
Tyron Woodley (+205) vs. Vicente Luque (-270)
Woodley is in desperate need of a win after losing in all his past three fights. After losing his belt to Kamaru Usman back in 2019, Woodley lost to Gilbert Burns (UD) and to Colby Covington (TKO/KO). Woodley is reportedly in great shape ahead of his showdown with Luque, but whether he could stop his losing skid will be answered only when he steps inside the Octagon against the Brazilian. Luque has lost just once in his nine fights and boasts of an 11-0 knockout record.
Luque wins via KO.
Sean O’Malley (-320) vs. Thomas Almeida (+240)
In his mind, O’Malley is still undefeated despite suffering his first career loss at the hands of Marlon Vera in August of last year via knockout. In any case, O’Malley still looks like a very dangerous fighter against anyone, as it’s hard to discount his eight knockout wins in 13 total pro fights. Almeida, on the other hand, can resuscitate his career with a win as he’s winless in three fights. Almeida is also a knockout artist like O’Malley. Almeida has 17 wins via knockouts and also has three submission wins.
O’Malley wins via KO.
Khama Worthy (-140) vs. Jamie Mullarkey (+110)
In this light heavyweight fight, we have two bad boys looking to recover from losses. Worthy lost to Ottman Azaitar in September of last year via knockout, while Mullarkey is on a two-fight losing skid, with back-to-back losses to Brad Ridell (UD) and Fares Ziam (UD). There’s a lot of power between these two fighters, as they have a combined 16-8 knockout record. This could end up quick, based on each man’s knockout wins to knockout losses ratio.
Mullarkey wins via KO.
