UFC 251 is a mega event that will be held in the month of March. I’m sure everyone who watches mixed martial arts knows that it is the biggest and most anticipated fight card ever to take place in the sport. The main event is going to be defending light heavyweight champion Jon “The Colossus” Johnson against heavy bag specialist Andrei Arlovski. The bout will definitely be an exciting one, as both men have proven themselves capable of beating the toughest opponents. This fight is also going to be Jones Vs. Jones, as both men want to regain the light heavyweight title from “The Colossus”.
If you are going to make a deposit into your MMA betting account, then I would recommend that you keep your eyes firmly on the contenders. Jon “The Colossus” Johnson has looked amazing in his previous fights, but has struggled in his past bouts with divisional talent. The real test for him will be against a fighter who has not had a very good record in the UFC and isn’t expected to have one for this upcoming fight. So, how do you decide where to place your bet on UFC 251? I would say stay away from underdogs, and only play this fight if you have a strong sense that either Arlovski or Johnson is going to win the fight. As I mentioned before, this is a big chance for Jones to regain the light heavyweight title he had lost to Jones in the past.
With these two fighters are the odds on favorites, I would definitely pick Jones to win by a huge score. The problem with picking Jones to win is the fact that he is coming off a loss to “The Colossus”. He is definitely a risky investment, but if you’re willing to take that risk than there is a very good chance that you will come out a winner. On the other hand, if you are going to place a bet with high odds, then Arlovski should be considered the underdog and you should avoid betting on the fight until you see what kind of job he does in this fight.
Most people that follow mixed martial arts realize that Jones is the more talented fighter and will most likely win the fight. However, just because he is the odds on favorite doesn’t mean that he will perform at his full potential. As I mentioned before, this is a big chance for Jones to get his second title, so you have to expect this to be an extremely competitive fight. In this fight it will be interesting to see who is able to control the fight using submission holds while attempting to take down their opponent.
One interesting thing about this fight is that it will be held in Las Vegas. I know many people are against fighting in Vegas, but I personally think it brings out the best in fighters. This is because they will be able to fight and train under the guidance of a highly skilled trainer that works with the best of the best. I feel it’s a benefit for them to experience the city before going into it on fight night.
