All of the odds below are taken from BetOnline.ag, our top rated sportsbook for UFC betting.

Thomas Almeida vs Rob Font

Thomas should be able to put on a nice performance. The only problem is Rob has never been knocked out. He looked great during the weigh in and hopefully Thomas brings back his knockout style but I think it will go the distance.

Thomas Almeida to win by Decision.

Gian Villante vs Francimar Borroso
