UFC 232 Betting Picks
What a way to send off 2018 with a pair of highly anticipated fights, both with the potential to be all out wars. And as with all prize fights, online betting will play a huge factor in interest, so let’s dive into the MMA Odds for UFC 232 on Saturday December 29th from Las Vegas, Nevada.
Jones vs Gustafsson II
Jon Jones‘ biggest challenge in his career has arguably been himself and his personal demons outside of the Octagon. But inside the Octagon there has never been a more spectacular performer. And Jon Jones only career loss came via disqualification so when they announce him as 22-1 most of the MMA community treats him as an undefeated phenom. He dominates in the stand up, and as he’s shown on several occasions he’ll go to the ground and dominate there as well.
Vitor Belfort mangled his elbow in an arm bar, and he didn’t tap. He destroyed Chael Sonnen while a bone was sticking out of his big toe, and he didn’t even notice. The only real moment of doubt came against the man he will square off against in 10 days. Aleksander Gustafsson stood toe to toe and eye to eye with Jones for 5 rounds in 2013 and an enthralled audience saw a great back and forth battle. Both fighters clearly split the first 4 rounds and Jones did enough in the championship 5th round.
Overall it was the right decision as Jones landed 62% of his overall strikes to Gustafsson’s 39% which it the difference in quality between these two fighter. Jones is hard to hit and finds more ways to land.
If I’m being asked to lay less than 3/1 odds with perhaps the greatest fighter of all time I think I could justify laying the -285 with Jones but perhaps there is another approach…

Cyborg vs Nunes
Without question Cris Cyborg (20-1) is the greatest female MMA fighter of all time. But perhaps December 29th will see a passing of the torch when she squares off against countrywoman and an absolute beast in Amanda Nunes.
On a 7 fight win streak of her own, can Nunes (16-4) overcome the mystique of Cyborg? It feels as if at age 33, there is still plenty left in the tank for Cyborg. Going forward she will be too much for Nunes to handle and while the value of Nunes as a +200 underdog is notable, I’m thinking parlay.
If the UFC Odds allow me to parlay 2 of the greatest fighters ever at basically even money, it’s a hard offer to pass up.
PICK: JONES TO WIN + CYBORG TO WIN at -115 on BODOG
