The UFC is touching down in Glasgow, Scotland with some juicy odds on the table for UFC Fight Night 113. This is flying under the radar with all the hype on the McGregor vs Mayweather world tour, and the Jones vs Cormier fight in a few weeks. No real household names here, but some excellent fighters with money to be made!
Stevie Ray vs Paul Felder:
Stevie Ray is on my hit list for beating my favorite fighter of all-time in Joe Lauzon, which is why I’m thrilled the UFC threw him in with Felder. Felder is a blood and guts fighter that shows up and puts on a great fight every time the cage door locks behind him. The Scotty, Ray, will try to defend his home land with strong grappling, but look for Felder to keep this one on the feet where he’ll batter Ray. Felder at +100.
Joanne Calderwood #8 vs. Cynthia Calvillo #14:
Calderwood has been a top contender for a few years now, and just missed out on a title shot after getting merked by Jessica Andrade in her last fight. On the other hand we have Calvillo who’s one of the top prospects the UFC has in their women’s divisions. This fight doesn’t quite have a passing of the guard feel to it. Calderwood at +190.
Gunnar Nelson #8 vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio #14:
This certainly isn’t a fight Nelson wanted, as he’s got little to gain and everything to lose. A decisive win could land him the biggest fight of his career against a top 5 welterweight.. but with a loss to the unknown Ponzinibbio would be devastating. Nelson, a training partner of Conor McGregor is one of the top jiu-jitsu fighters in the UFC.. where Ponzinibbio is a very an extremely explosive fighter. I’m tempted to grab Ponzinibbio, but Gunnar has looked like a man on a mission since losing to current title challenger, Damian Maia. The hometown boy should take this one. Nelson at -210.
