Bet on UFC at BetCris

Preliminary Card (UFC Fight Pass)

Anthony Hamilton vs. Adam Wieczorek

Hamilton is 15-6 in his career, while Wieczorek is 8-1. Hamilton is facing what could be a must-win fight, as he has dropped his last three fights in the UFC and rarely does a fighter get to stay in the UFC on a four-fight losing streak. Wieczorek will be making his UFC debut and he will have the crowd support, as he is from Poland.

Damian Stasiak vs. Brian Kelleher

Stasiak is 10-3 in his career, while Kelleher is 17-8. Stasiak has split his last four fights, but he is coming off a loss to Pedro Munhoz in late May. Kelleher is 1-1 in the UFC, but he is coming off a loss to Marlon Vera in late July.

Trevor Smith vs. Ramazan Emeev

Smith is 14-7 in his career, while Emeev is 15-3. Smith is 5-4 in his UFC career and coming off a win against Chris Camozzi in late May. Emeev will be making his UFC debut.

Artem Lobov vs. Andre Fili

Lobov is 13-13-1 in his career, while Fili is 16-4. Lobov is 2-3 in the UFC and coming off a loss to Cub Swanson in April, while Fili is 4-4 in the UFC and coming off a loss to Calvin Kattar in July.

Jim Wallhead vs. Warlley Alves

Wallhead is 29-11 in his career, while Alves is 10-2. Wallhead has lost both of his fights in the UFC, while Alves won his first four UFC fights but he has dropped his last two.

Felipe Arantes vs. Josh Emmett

Arantes is 18-8-1 in his career, while Emmett is 11-1. Arantes is 5-5-1 in the UFC but he is coming off a loss to Eric Perez last November. Emmett is 2-1 in the UFC but coming off a loss to Desmond Green in April.

Lina Lansberg vs. Aspen Ladd

Lansberg is 8-2 in her career, while Ladd is unbeaten at 5-0. Lansberg is 1-1 in the UFC, losing to Cris Cyborg but beating Lucie Pudilova. Ladd will be making her UFC debut after going unbeaten in Invicta.

UFC Picks

Of the seven prelims we looked at, I like Lansberg to beat Ladd. Lansberg has more experience and there is no shame in her loss to Cyborg. Ladd is unbeaten but she really hasn’t fought anyone of note. I will take Lansberg in that fight. I also like Lobov in his fight against Artem and I like Emmett to take care of Arantes.
