Julia Avila (red gloves) fights against Pannie Kianzad (blue gloves) at T-Mobile Arena.

Julia Avila (-500) vs. Gina Mazany (+350)

One of the biggest favorites on the night belongs to Julia Avila as she takes on Gina Mazany. This will be the first Women’s fight of the night in the Bantamweight division. Even though Avila is the heavy favorite, she only has one UFC fight under her belt. She is 7-1 in her MMA career but has only just now entered the UFC. The more experienced fighter comes in the underdog Mazany who holds a 6-3 record in her MMA career, with a UFC record of 1-3.

Hannah Cifers weighing in at UFC 241

Mariya Agapova (-230) vs. Hannah Ciffers (+180)

The underdog Ciffers is now stepping in just two weeks after taking on Mackenzie Dern. Ciffers did lose the fight and now holds a 10-5 record in the MMA, and 2-3 in the UFC. For the favorite Apapova, this will be her UFC Debut after starting her MMA career 8-1. Check our free Rosa vs. Aguilar prediction here.

The +130 underdog in this match La Rosa has yet to win since 2018. He comes in with a record of 11-4, however, he is only 2-4 in 6 UFC fights. With losing three matches in a row, Espinosa gets the favorite lean. Check our free Espinosa vs. De La Rosa prediction here.

Merab Dvalishvili poses as he weighs in during weigh ins for UFC Fight Night at Canadian Tire Centre.

Gustavo Lopez (+500) vs, Merab Dvalishvili (-770)

Speaking of favorites, here comes the biggest favorite of the main event card. Dvalishvili will be looking for his fourth straight victory as he takes on Lopez who has yet to fight in the UFC. Lopez jumped to take on Dvalishvili as Ray Borg had to pull out. On short notice, do not expect a fight from Lopez. For Dvalishvili he holds a career record of 10-4, with a UFC record of 3-2. -770 odds straight up might seem impossible to bet on, but we have a value bet that could make everyone smile.
