Holm vs Silva 6 Best Bets for UFC Fight Night

UFC Fight Night is back this Saturday, July 15 and fight fans are ready to see 41-year-old Holly Holm in action against #10-ranked Mayra Bueno Silva. The rest of the card is pretty decent, headlined by Albert Duraev taking on Jun Yong Park.

Need some help betting on Holm vs Silva? We got you! Here are the 6 best bets we're playing for UFC Fight Night!

Prelim Top Play: Alexander Munoz

Munoz is 0-2 since starting his UFC career. Prior to that, he was 6-0 in other promotions. He has his back up against the wall in this one and we love playing a fighter that is in that position.

He is facing Carl Deaton who has a career record of 17-6 with only one fight in the UFC. He was submitted by Joe Solecki in his debut back in February and was never really in the fight. We expect him to come out overly aggressive and Munoz will be able to take advantage.

Prelim Card Underdog Play: Tucker Lutz

Lutz is fresh off back-to-back losses. However, these loses were to 2 extremely tough opponents. He was submitted by Daniel Pineda who had 18 subs on his record and a ton of experience.

His other loss was to the up-and-coming Pat Sabatini. Here he gets Melsik Baghdasaryan, who is 7-2, but was the 1st submission victim to Josh Culibao.

Lutz has a wrestling background that we believe is going to serve him well in this contest. He is going to be focused on avoiding a 3rd straight loss and will be a very live dog here.

Prelim Card Top Prop: Tyson Nam & Azat Maksum UNDER 2.5 Rounds

Tyson Nam has only had 1 of his last 5 fights go past the 2.5 round mark. He is a big dog in this matchup with the undefeated Maksum.

Maksum has done the same in 3 of his last 5. With 5 KO/TKOs and 7 Submissions, Maksum is likely to put Nam out in one of those ways prior to the middle of the 3rd round.

Main Event Play: Mayra Bueno Silva

While both Bueno Silva and her opponent Holly Holm are strikers by nature, Bueno Silva has a much better grappling and submission game than Holm.

She has picked up back-to-back wins via sub which pushed her record to 10-2-1 with 7 via submission. She is 10 years younger than Holm which could play into the cardio portion of this matchup.

Holm has KO ability and has done so to 8 of her 21 opponents. We believe Bueno Silva will make this one ugly and get Holly to the mat where she will have the advantage.

Main Card Top Play: Nazim Sadykhov

Nazim took care of business in his UFC debut when he struck Evan Elder to a Dr stoppage in the 3rd. With an 8-1 overall record, Nazim has finished 6 of those opponents by KO/TKO.

He faces UFC veteran, Terrance McKinney who has been KO’d 4 times in his career, including his last 2 losses.

While we like the play on Nazim to win by KO/TKO, the juice is small enough for us to just ride on any path to victory.

Main Card Top Prop: Josh Parisian vs Walt Harris OVER 1.5 Rounds

These 2 heavyweights can straight up throw. Walt Harris has 13 wins in his career and all 15 have come via KO/TKO. Parisian has 11 of his 15 wins coming the same way.

However, Parisian has seemed to take his fights deeper than he had earlier in his career. After have 8 of 9 fights end in the 1st round, he has had 4 of his last 5 fights go into the 3rd round.

Harris has gone into the 2nd round in 2 of his last 3 fights. We believe these 2 big boys will be able to get midway through the 2nd round before one of them gasses out and gets TKO’d.
