UFC Fight Night 114 Odds for Saturday – The UFC is back in Mexico City with their 114th edition of the “Fight Night” series that sees the featured bouts air on Fox Sports 1.
The main event is a five round flyweight match-up between Sergio Pettis (15-2) and Brandon Moreno (14-3). Pettis entered the UFC with a lot of hype as the younger brother of then UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, but Sergio went 3-2 in his first five UFC fights to take some of the shine off of his star. Pettis also struggled making the 125 pound weight class early on but Pettis has put together a solid three fight winning streak that saw him beat veteran John Moraga in his last outing. Moreno has three UFC fights and he has gone 3-0 but that is not the whole story with the youngster out of Tijuana. The 23 year old started his MMA career off 3-3 but he has rattled off 11 wins in a row. Moreno is a slight betting favorite as the fight approaches this Saturday.
The UFC is still hunting for a star in Mexico, and it may be strawweight Alexa Grasso (9-1) that becomes a household name south of the border. The 23 year old has shown a lot of potential when it comes to skill and charisma, but she is coming off her first professional loss and needs to avoid a two fight losing streak. Markos is 3-3 in the UFC and she has been alternating wins and losses since she got to the big show win December of 2014. Markos is coming off a big win in February, as she took a split decision victory over former titleholder Carla Esparza.
Mexico’s undefeated (11-0) Martin Bravo takes on Peru’s Humberto Bandanay (13-4) in a featherweight bout. Bravo won his UFC debut in November of 2016 while Bandenay is making his debut in the big show. Bravo has a mixed attack that has seen him finish 4 bouts via strikes and 5 via submission but Bandenay has a similar resume and more fight experience. Bandenay is riding a five fight winning streak to earn the shot in the UFC.
Former lightweight champion Rashad Evans (19-6-1) takes another crack at the middleweight division as he faces “Smiling” Sam Alvey (30-9). Evans has gone from being one of the company’s titleholders and potential poster boys to being one win away from a pink slip. Evans has dropped three fights in a row and he is 2-5 in his last seven so he is nowhere near contention and just looking to hang on to his job. Alvey had a four fight winning streak snapped in his last outing when he fell to Thales Leites this past April.
