UFC 224 Betting Guide: Odds and Predictions

The UFC returns for their latest pay-per-view offering as UFC 224 takes place on Sunday, May 13 (AEST) from the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The card is headlined with women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes defending her title against Colorado's Raquel Pennington.

Former UFC Lightheavyweight winners Vitor Belfort and Lyoto Machida will Meet every other at the first struggle of the chief card, and it is expected To function as former farewell bout.

One killed as persons attacked worshippers in South African mosque
The imam of the Shia mosque is believed to have been targeted in the attack. It is unacceptable, and justice must take its course", the MJC said.

Let's start with the two veteran legends, Belfort and Machida and move towards the main event. It'll be a tall task as Lineker has gone 7-1 in his last eight bouts and his only loss in that span was to reigning bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw. Middleweight Vitor Belfort and his service dog greet UFC Hall of Famer Minotauro Nogueira, and strawweight Mackenzie Dern does interviews. And we know how the cookie will crumble if this fight does indeed go to a decision in Rio. Stylistically, Machida likely has the edge due to his abilities as a counter-striker, which should enable him to weather the anticipated early onslaught from Belfort, who is 0-4 in his last four fights as the underdog. All but one of the 10 writers side with the champion. But to just think that she was only asking out because she was exhausted and felt beaten is wholly unprofessional and borderline unsafe. A total of 40 per cent of Lineker's wins have come by decision even though he's the type of fighter who likes to advance and use his power punches. Gastelum is a fantastic wrestler but will lose in a grappling match with Souza. "If it's a rival or a friend, you have to step in and fight and get the job done", said Nunes. I like the champ to win. Though Souza has the home crowd edge, I think Gastelum scores the upset.

I feel like Nunes is dodging Cris Cyborg with this fight.

The 38-year-old Souza is nearing the last-chance saloon if he is to achieve his dream of being crowned UFC champion, but as the No.2 contender now, a victory here could re-insert him back into the conversation. I think that Pennington has the skill set to beat Nunes, but the ring rust could be the determining factor. Nunes took her down and landed hammerfists until the bout was stopped. Mentioning that, Nunes will have a hard time knocking out Rocky with her hands ... but Nunes has those long legs as well. So it actually might be worth it to just throw a few bucks on Pennington who is a longshot at +600.
