UFC Fight Night main event odds

Cory Sandhagen (-300) vs. Rob Font (+250)

Sandhagen (16-4 MMA, 9-3 UFC) hit a rough patch in his career after losing two fights in a row for the first time as a professional back in 2021. In fairness, one of those was a decision that could have easily gone his way.

The other was a fight against a former champion with the UFC interim bantamweight belt on the line, which he might not have been ready for at the time. Since that loss, he’s reeled off two straight victories and looked like a more seasoned and comfortable fighter in the process.

Font (20-6 MMA, 10-5 UFC) is also on the upswing after suffering his first losing streak as a professional. He got his first TKO finish since 2020 in his last bout back in April, but here he steps in as a late replacement against an opponent who’s a tough matchup for him both physically and stylistically.

Sandhagen is a tall, lanky fighter for bantamweight, and when he uses that range effectively, it can create a lot of problems for opponents. He’s got a creative striking game when he’s allowed to work at a distance, and a crafty submissions game that he sometimes relies on too much, giving away rounds when he should be working back to his feet.

Font’s strength is striking in the pocket, but he’ll have to solve the puzzle of range first to get where he wants to be against Sandhagen. Both men are familiar with five-round main events at this point, and between the two of them, they’ve gone the distance in six of the seven five-rounders they’ve been in.

UFC Fight Night co-main event odds

Jessica Andrade (+275) vs. Tatiana Suarez (-350)

Andrade (24-11 MMA, 15-9 UFC) has undergone a precipitous fall from her brief time as the UFC women’s strawweight champion. After gaining and losing the title in 2019, she’s gone 4-4 and lost her last two as she’s struggled to find the right weight class. Her return to the strawweight division was marked by a knockout loss in May, followed by this quick turnaround to step in as a replacement opponent on a little more than a month’s notice.

Suarez (9-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) is still a largely untested prospect, but one the UFC is very excited about. She won season 23 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” submitting all but one opponent in the process. She’s also already beaten one former UFC champ in Carla Esparza, whom she defeated by TKO in 2018.

Suarez missed a lot of time in a crucial period of her career due to injury, and she’s now trying to get back in a regular rhythm to fulfill the high expectations she broke into the UFC with. A fight with a powerful, though predictable, former champ should be a good test for her, but one sportsbooks have her as a favorite to pass.
