PRO MMA ‘Best Bets’ of UFC 95

UFC 95 takes place this Saturday Feb. 21 in London, England. The card is headlined by Diego Sanchez (19-2, 8-2 UFC) making his lightweight debut against Joe “Daddy” Stevenson (29-9, 6-3 UFC). Odds-makers  are placing Sanchez as the heavy favorite, however, this will be his debut at lightweight and it is often hard to tell how someone will adjust to the weight cut their first time. Stevenson would be a good play at +250 and considered a PRO MMA Best Bet.

There is a fight on the preliminary card between England’s Terry Etim (11-2, 2-2 UFC) and Palace Fighting Championship lightweight title holder, Brian Cobb (15-4, 0-0 UFC). Cobb took this fight on short notice, replacing Justin Buchholz (8-2, 1-1 UFC), who is out with a staph infection. The Odds-makers are banking on the fact Cobb will not be prepared coming in with about a week’s notice, but with his experience and underdog odds of +200, he is also considered a PRO MMA Best Bet.

On February 21st at the O2 arena in London at UFC 95 he will face off against number four ranked welterweight contender Josh Koscheck (12-3).

Koscheck has faced the top of the food chain as far as UFC welterweights go, having wins over Chris Lytle, Dustin Hazelett and Diego Sanchez. He has also taken GSP and Thiago Alves, both of whom are considered by many to be the top two fighters in the division, to decision. Although Koscheck lost both fights, he showed a lot of heart and tenacity proving that even the best in the world could not stop him.
