UFC Fight Night: Rodriguez vs Caceres Odds

Free UFC Fight Night action will be available for MMA betting fans this weekend when the UFC Fight Night 92 card goes down in Salt Lake City, Utah on Saturday night.

Headlining the event will be two featherweight fights featuring rising star Yair Rodriguez against Alex Caceres, while Dennis Bermudez faces Rony Jason in the co-main event. UFC Fight Night 92 will also feature names like Court McGee, Thales Leites and Cub Swanson.

Rodriguez has won his last five fights which includes a perfect 4-0 in the UFC. He is also a perfect 4-0 when handicapped as the favorite, and at UFC Fight Night 92 he is a UFC odds -300 favorite to beat Caceres at online sportsbook Bovada. A +230 underdog, Caceres may have won his last two fights but dropped his previous three and has shown that he doesn’t match up well against the upper echelon of the division.

We expect Rodriguez to be too aggressive for Caceres to deal with, especially over a potentially five-round fight. He has won multiple bonus awards in the Octagon and should be able to deal with the martial arts technique of Caceres without any major issues. We like the Rodriguez KO win in this one, likely in the earlier rounds of the fight.

In the UFC Fight Night 92 co-main event Dennis Bermudez will look to make it two in a row with a win over Rony Jason. With wins over the likes of Clay Guida and Max Holloway, Bermudez has the skills to deal with any featherweight fighter if he has a good night. He is handicapped as a -240 UFC odds favorite at Bovada, and we think that is a fair price against an opponent who is 1-2-1 NC over his last four fights.

We expect Bermudez to roll over Jason for an early-round KO or submission win. MMA betting options on Jason to win are currently handicapped at +190, nowhere near close enough for us to consider opting for the potential upset payday.

Action thus far on Jason has moved the initial +170 option up to the current +190, and we agree with MMA bettors for going with the chalk option in this one.
