UFC Fight Night Jessica Eye Vs. Cynthia Calvillo – Betting Odds And Top Fights Predictions
Dana White has set up nine fights for the upcoming UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas. We’re ready for another night of intense action and UFC betting.
Jessica Eye vs. Cynthia Calvillo will be the headliner of a solid lineup ready to perform on ESPN +. The event will take place on June 13th at the UFC APEX facility.
Let’s breakdown the best fights:
Jessica Eye Vs. Cynthia Calvillo
|Jessica Eye Vs. Cynthia Calvillo Odds To Win|
Jessica Eye jumps as a small favorite at MyBookie at -120. Eye bounced back after a loss against Valentina Shevchenko by beating Viviane Araújo via unanimous decision at the UFC 245. It was her fourth win in the last five outings.
Indeed, there is no shame in losing to a world-class fighter like Shevchenko. But Jessica Eye can’t afford a loss against Cynthia Calvillo, or her reputation will take a massive blow.
Calvillo has an 8-1-1 record since debuting in the UFC in 2016. She’s getting more and more attention, but that also means her opponents are extra challenging.
Her last performance was a draw against Marina Rodriguez back in December. She is -110 at MyBookie to win this weekend.
The oddsmakers at MyBookie don’t see much of an advantage for any of the two fighters. I see Jessica Eye as a more experienced fighter and with a slightly bigger repertoire.
Unlike Calvillo, she can box, although that’s not where the fight will get decided. Expect Eye to dominate the takedowns while winning the battle via split decision.
Our Eye Vs. Calvillo UFC Pick:
Karl Roberson Vs. Marvin Vettori
|Karl Roberson Vs. Marvin Vettori Odds To Win|
Marvin Vettori comes in as the favorite to win this middleweight fight at -200. Vettori has won his last two outings in a row since losing to Israel Adesanya back in 2018.
Vettori is not a fighter than ends his opponents quickly. His last seven fights went the distance. He’s a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu brown belt with a reliable technique but mysterious striker power. Many times, it looks like he doesn’t have or want to have a striking game at all.
Karl Roberson is a kickboxer coming into this contest with two straight wins. He’s +160 to win on Saturday. His two career losses in the UFC came via submission. He doesn’t know how to defend a savvy grappler, and if he gets on the ground, it’s over.
These two fighters have different styles, but Vettori is the type of fighter Roberson doesn’t know how to defend.
Our Roberson Vs. Vettori UFC Pick:
Merab Dvalishvili Vs. Ray Borg
|Merab Dvalishvili Vs. Ray Borg Odds To Win|
On paper, Merab Dvalishvili vs. Ray Borg shouldn’t be close. MyBookie has Dvalishvili -365 to win this bantamweight fight, while Borg is +285.
Merab Dvalishvili has won three in a row, all via unanimous decision. His career record is ten wins and four losses. What makes him dangerous is his aggressiveness when trying to impose his judo style, but also the fact that he can counter with powerful strikes.
Ray Borg is 13-5 on his UFC career with a loss against Ricky Simon in his last outing. He has dropped three of his previous five fights.
I have the temptation to go with Borg because his grappling game is outstanding, but he’s not as strong as Dvalishvili. Plus, he doesn’t have a Plan B. If he can’t establish his style, there is no other way he can win.
Our Dvalishvili Vs. Borg UFC Pick:
Andre Fili Vs. Charles Jourdain
|Andre Fili Vs. Charles Jourdain Odds To Win|
Charles Jourdain is trying to make a name for himself. At +190, a win over Andre Fili will go a long way. He has won five of his last six fights and has an overall record of 10-2.
Yet, Andre Fili is the veteran in this scenario, and that’s the main reason he’s -230 to win this fight. Plus, Fili is coming off a loss against Sodiq Yusuff early this year. He has never lost twice in a row, and this is not where that trend will begin.
