Deiveson Figueiredo (1.33) vs Alex Perez (3.30)

Alex Perez comes into this one looking to make it 4 wins in a row. He hasn’t lost since the end of 2018 when he fought Joseph Benavidez. He stepped in last minute for this and won’t have a full camp to work from on the day.

The UFC betting odds favor a win for the Brazilian Figueiredo having won his last four fights in a row - finishing the last three before it went to a decision.

We’ve seen the devastating knockout power of Figueiredo in recent fights and he’s in his prime right now. It’ll take something special from a very capable Alex Perez to snatch the title away from the champ.

Take Figueiredo to win.

Valentina Shevchenko (1.08) vs Jennier Maia (8.00)

Valentina Shevchenko will be joined by her sister Antonina on the card for UFC 255, as she goes into her title fight as the clear favorite with all top UFC betting sites to beat the challenger Jennifer Maia.

32-year old Maia has a record of 18-6 and has looked good in recent fights, except a loss she conceded to Katlyn Chookagian at the end of 2019.

Valentina is a phenomenal fighter. She has shown it time and time again. The Russian hasn’t lost since 2017, against Amanda Nunes in her prime.

Expect a win from Valentina Shevchenko.

Brandon Moreno (1.50) vs Brandon Royval (2.60)

Finally, we look at the fight between the Mexican Brandon Moreno and the rising star Brandon Royval fighting out of Colorado. Brandon fought recently at UFC 245 and UFC Fight Night in May. You can catch all the events through our UFC events schedule.

Moreno has 3 wins and 1 draw in his last four fights, three of which went to decision. While he’s a strong fighter he doesn’t have the explosive finishing power of Royval, who has won his last 4 fights within 2 rounds.

Royval is young and exciting, fighting with the kind of attractive style all UFC fans love. We think the dog will be the winner in this one. Royval has some real power and accuracy about his striking.

Pick Brandon Royval to win.
