UFC Fight Night 210 takes place on Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. This card features a bantamweight fight between Corey Sandhagen and Song Yadong as the Main Event.

We are sharing our UFC Fight Night 210 best bets here, but head over to our main UFC Fight Night 210 predictions for picks for each fight on the main and preliminary card. Let’s get into our best bets for Saturday’s card.

UFC Fight Night 210 Main Card Best Bet

Chidi Njokuani ML over Gregory Rodrigues (-120)

Chidi Njokuani comes into this fight with an MMA record of 22-7. He is 3-0 in the UFC, most recently beating Dusko Todorovic by KO/TKO in May. Njokuani is averaging 3.76 significant strikes per minute and has a striking accuracy of 73%. He is absorbing 1.45 strikes and has a striking defense of 56%.

This fight is evenly matched, but Njokuani’s perfect start to the UFC cannot be ignored. He does not have the striking volume to match his opponent, but his power is unquestioned, having won 14 times by KO/TKO in his career. He is also absorbing far less damage and has not lost since 2019. For that reason, backing Njokuani to remain perfect in the UFC will be the play.

UFC Fight Night 210 Preliminary Card Best Bets

Trevin Giles vs Louis Cosce – Fight to go the Distance – No (-200)

Trevin Giles comes into this fight with an MMA record of 14-4. He is 5-4 in the UFC, most recently losing to Michael Morales by KO/TKO in January. Giles is averaging 3.09 significant strikes per minute and has a striking accuracy of 54%. He is absorbing 2.20 strikes and has a striking defense of 59%.

Louis Cosce has an MMA record of 7-1. He is 1-1 in the UFC, most recently losing to Sasha Palatnikov by KO/TKO in November 2020. Cosce is averaging 8.22 significant strikes per minute and has a striking accuracy of 48%. He is absorbing 9.30 significant strikes per minute, and has a striking defense of 48%.

Giles is a heavy favorite in this fight, but the finishing ability shown by Cosce keeps him as a live dog. Cosce has seen all 8 of his career fights end inside the distance, while Giles has seen 15 of his 18 career fights do the same. For that reason, expect a fast-paced fight and back this contest to end inside the distance.

Javid Basharat ML over Tony Gravely (-165)

Javid Basharat comes into this fight with an MMA record of 12-0. He is 2-0 in the UFC, most recently beating Trevin Jones by unanimous decision in March. Basharat is averaging 5.45 significant strikes per minute and has a striking accuracy of 58%. He is absorbing 2.53 strikes and has a striking defense of 64%. His grappling has also been solid, averaging 1.54 takedowns per 15 minutes. His takedown accuracy is 60% and he has a takedown defense of 100%.

Basharat has yet to show a real weakness with his perfect takedown defense and his superior striking ability. He has finished 11 of his 12 wins, therefore backing him to win and remain undefeated will be the play.
