UFC Vegas 27 - Font vs Garbrandt Predictions & More
May 20, 2021
UFC Vegas 27 brings us a Fight Night card with 13 fights, with a mixed bag in terms of quality of fights and name power. The main event is a fun striking battle at bantamweight between Rob Font and Cody Garbrandt. This will be an enjoyable one to watch, more on this one later. The co-main event between Yan Xiaonan and Carla Esparza is a necessary one in the women’s strawweight rankings, but not exactly a fight to be excited for. There are a couple fights on the card lacking the projected viewing enjoyment like this one, but there are some very fun ones too. The Edmen Shahbazyan vs Jack Hermansson fight that we were forced to wait for takes place on this card. That one will be a lot of fun and we will see what adjustments Shahbazyan has made as he turns from prospect to contender. We will also see if Hermansson is able to bounce back from his loss to Marvin Vettori. Bill Algeo is also fighting, which is always fun. The other fight to highlight is the Claudio Silva vs Court McGee fight. It really could be a clunky one, but I am intrigued nonetheless.
On the betting side, we will have four plays. They will all be right around pickem risk level so the profit this week will come from quantity of wins. I am a fan of the plays, let’s dive into them.
