UFC president Dana White told the media Tuesday he is planning an event for May 9, the originally scheduled date for UFC 250. The location and time have yet to be confirmed, but White revealed plans for am epic 12-bout card that will be highlighted by three title fights.
The main event will be an interim lightweight title fight between Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje, which was scheduled to headline the since-canceled UFC 249. Ferguson was a -200 favorite (risk $200 to win $100), while Gaethje was a +170 underdog (risk $100 to win $170) at William Hill before UFC 249 was scrapped.
Before you make any UFC picks for the May 9 event, you NEED to see the predictions from SportsLine MMA expert Kyle Marley. He won the first-ever “ToutMaster” UFC betting contest sponsored by MMAOddsBreaker and also appears regularly on multiple MMA betting and DFS shows. Over the past year, $100 bettors who have followed Marley’s picks are up nearly $19,000!
While posting an 8-3 record at UFC 248, Marley told SportsLine members to expect middleweight champion Israel Adesanya (-275) to retain his title against Yoel Romero (+235) by unanimous decision. He argued that Adesanya would pick Romero apart while on his feet and was proven correct as the champ dominated the action with leg kicks. Also, Marley went a stunning 9-2-1 at UFC Fight Night 170, the last UFC event. Anyone who has consistently followed Marley is WAY UP.
For UFC 250, we can tell you Marley is backing Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (-150) to get the best of Uriah Hall (+125) in a matchup of veteran middleweights. He’s also backing one man who’s “the scariest fighter alive.” You ABSOLUTELY need to see all of Marley’s picks before making any of your own!
