UFC Vegas 49, is set to take centre stage at thet UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, this weekend (Sat. Feb. 26, 2022)
The main event was supposed to be Islam Makhachev vs. Beneil Dariush, but an injury to Dariush forced him out, and Bobby Green stepped up on short notice and for the bettors of this one Makhachev is a huge favorite in the UFC Vegas 49 odds posted at America’s Bookie
Entering this one Makhachev is currently on an incredible nine-fight win streak and has absolutely dominated every opponent he’s been up against.
In his last fight, he defeated Dan Hooker in the very first round via submission and will be looking forward to continuing the same against Green on saturday evening.
If you’re looking to lay action on this match up your going to have to drop (-770) on Makhachev to win a crispy (100) but if you like Bobby green’s chances in this one a ($100) wager will return a healthy (+600) if you think he can pull off the upset.
Bobby Green has been around it seems like forever. The UFC veteran fighter has been in against the likes of Edson Barboza, Dustin Poirier, Al Iaquinta, and also defeated Nasrat Haqparast at UFC 271.
Green has 29 career wins, 10 have come from knockout and 8 from submission.
Islam Makhachev is Khabib Nurmagomedov’s protege, and he’s looked phenomenal other than his one loss when he got caught and knocked out (20-1) is an impressive record and hard to go against.
We feel Makhachev will be able to get Green down on the map quickly and will look to get him out of there early as he did to Dan Hooker. Taking this fight on short notice is a pay day for Green but one he might regret in a hurry.
Pick: Islam Makhachev (-720)
