Another big weekend of MMA action is upon us, and we are going to do our best to cover all the upcoming events. For the purposes of this piece, we are going to focus on LFA 130, which is set to go on Friday night at 9 PM EST. There are 6 fights scheduled for the main card, and while there are no title fights in this one, it is still a solid card with a ton of great matchups. Let’s now break down all 6 fights along with their LFA Betting Odds, with predictions for each.
MMA Betting Preview for 130: Ksiazkiewicz vs Gambulino
Ryan Charlebois Vs Myktybek Orolbay Uulu
We get the main card rolling with a Welterweight fight between a pair of fighters in the early stages of their pro careers. Charlebois has just 3 fights under his belt, but he has won all 3, including a pair inside the distance. Uulu comes in with a 6-1 career mark and will be making his first appearance under the LFA banner. I like the more experienced Uulu to get the KO win.
Billy Elekana (-315) Vs Kohlman Scribner (+235)
This Middleweight bout is another fight that features a pair of relative newbies looking to move up the ranks. Elekana is currently sitting at 3-0 and is coming off a decision win in his first fight with the LFA. Scribner started his pro career with a loss, but he has bounced back nicely to win 3 in a row ahead of this one. I like this one to go the distance, with Elekana getting the win.
Gage Saunders (+325) Vs Jalin Fuller (-425)
As we move up the main card, we start to see more experienced fighters come in, starting with this Welterweight bout. Saunders has been a little inconsistent, going 8-2, but he comes into this one having won 3 in a row. Fuller started his pro career with 5 straight wins, but he is looking to bounce back from a loss. I think Fuller gets back to winning ways with the Ko win in this one.
Hilarie Rose Vs Tiana Valle
We have the ladies stepping into the octagon next for what looks like a very good Strawweight matchup. Both need a win, with Rose coming of back-to-back losses that dropped her to 5-4 overall. It is much the same story for Valle, who is 3-3 and looking to bounce back after losing 2 in a row. I think this one goes the distance, with Rose getting the nod.
Marnic Mann (-275) Vs Kelsey Arnesen (+215)
We have another women’s Strawweight bout in as the penultimate fight of the evening, and it promises to be a good one. Mann comes into this bout with a perfect 3-0 record, and while Arnesen has made a wobbly start to her pro career at 1-1, she will not be an easy out. I do like Mann to take this one, though, with a submission win the most likely outcome.
Mariusz Ksiazkiewicz Vs Alessandro Gambulino
The main event of the night is a Middleweight bout between a pair of fighters who don’t very often lose. Ksiazkiewicz comes into this fight with a 9-1 record and a habit of getting his fights over with rather quickly. Gambulino has a 12-3 record and is on a run that has seen him win 3 in a row. Ksiazkiewicz has power to burn and I like him for the KO win.
