UFC 240 - Max Holloway vs Frankie Edgar

Holloway is one of the biggest favourites on the card because he has so many paths to victories.

While Edgar has the wrestling edge, Holloway is hard to take down and even harder to keep down. Edgar is one of the best MMA wrestlers and has uncanny chain wrestling.

But he is also getting old and his once unbreakable chin was just cracked by Brian Ortega (who Holloway beat in an epic slugfest).

Expect the champ to nullify most of Edgar's wrestling attacks and eventually put him away using his diverse and powerful combos.

UFC 240 - Cris Cyborg vs Felicia Spencer

On the surface, this is a striker versus grappler fight.

But Cyborg is more than just a striker as she is well-versed in other facets of MMA. And while she is undefeated at 7-0, Spencer is still pretty green, especially in comparison to Cyborg who has 22 fights.

Cyborg may have a cracked chin now, but Spencer isn't a knockout threat and her striking is still raw.

Although she isn't the same destructive force of nature she was before, Cyborg should still neutralize whatever ground game Spencer will flash and beat her to a clear-cut decision.

UFC 240 - Geoff Neal vs Niko Price

Neal has been riding a lot of hype thanks to being undefeated in his run under the UFC (4-0, counting his Contender Series victory).

But Price is no slouch and is 5-2-1 in the UFC with his only losses coming against two of the UFC's heaviest hitters and rising contenders, Alhassan and Luque.

While Neal is the better striker and the likely winner, it is tough to justify his betting price.

Instead, the value is on Price who has found ways to win fights using an all-around skillset. There is a slight chance Price pulls this upset and at these UFC 240 Vegas odds, it's worth a small play.

UFC 240 - Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs Arman Tsarukyan

Like Neal, Tsarukyan is gaining significant hype as a prospect despite coming off a loss in his last bout.

Tsarukyan is an Armenian with a solid background in wrestling and Muay Thai and trains in one of the best gyms, Tiger Muay Thai & MMA. But as an unproven newcomer, taking on the experienced Aubin-Mercier will be more difficult than UFC 240 betting odds indicate.

Aubin-Mercier is on a two-fight skid, but they are against much tougher competition.

This should be a captivating fight between two grapplers that could go either way. In this sense, put money on the underdog or pass on it.

UFC 240 - Marc-Andre Barriault vs Krzysztof Jotko

The powerful Barriault isn't getting any favours from the UFC as he gets to bounce back from his debut loss against Andrew Sanchez against a former contender in Jotko.

While he isn't riding a hot streak anymore, Jotko is a versatile striker who also has crafty grappling chops. Barriault should be chunkier and have a strength advantage, but Jotko is much more skilled and experienced.

Jotko should utilize his more varied skillset to get a decision victory over Barriault.

Although Barriault can realistically grind Jotko out or even knock him out, it's a longshot.
