We are sharing our UFC 275 best bets here, but head over to our main UFC 275 predictions page for picks for each fight on the main and preliminary card. Let’s get into our best bets for Saturday’s card.
Main Card Best Bets
Jack Della Maddalena ML (-155) vs Ramazan Emeev
Jack Della Maddalena comes into this fight with an MMA record of 11-2. He is 2-0 in the UFC, most recently beating Pete Rodriguez by KO/TKO in January. Della Maddalena is averaging 8.40 significant strikes per minute and has a striking accuracy of 49%. He is absorbing 4.95 strikes and has a striking defense of 64%. His grappling will likely not play a huge factor, but he defends takedowns 75% of the time.
Della Maddalena is a medium-sized favorite in this fight, but looks to be the right side. His striking volume has been impressive to start his UFC career and he has been able to defend takedowns well enough to believe he can keep this fight standing. He has not lost in the UFC yet, so backing him to continue his unbeaten UFC run will be the play.
Andre Fialho ML (-145) vs Jake Matthews
Andre Fialho comes into this fight with an MMA record of 16-4. He is 2-1 in the UFC, most recently beating Cameron VanChamp by KO/TKO back in May. Fialho is averaging 4.23 significant strikes per minute and has a striking accuracy of 43%. He is absorbing 6.75 strikes and has a striking defense of 48%. He has not yet shown any grappling ability, but has a takedown defense of 75%.
With the win last month, Fialho has now won 6 of his last 7 fights. Jake Matthews has the edge when it comes to grappling, but Fialho has never lost by submission. Fialho has a big edge when it comes to striking, which makes him worth backing in this fight.
Preliminary Card Best Bet
Na Liang ML (+115) vs Silvana Gomez Juarez
Na Liang comes into this fight with an MMA record of 19-5. She is 0-1 in the UFC, most recently losing to Ariane Carnelossi by KO/TKO in April 2021. Liang is averaging 2.94 significant strikes per minute and has a striking accuracy of 70%. She is absorbing 3.71 strikes and has a striking defense of 25%. Even in her UFC debut loss, her grappling looked elite. Liang is averaging 6.96 takedowns per every 15 minutes and 2.3 submission attempts during the same time period. Her takedown accuracy is 75% and she has not had to defend a takedown in the UFC.
Silvana Gomez Juarez’s struggles on the ground so far in the UFC could be a huge concern coming into this fight. Liang did not win her debut, but showed flashes of what she can do while grappling, so for that reason backing Liang will be the play.
