T’s Jackson-Wink vs. Brazil that Saturday (July 6, 2019) if Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns into the pay-per-view (PPV) airwaves from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Light Heavyweight emperor Jon Jones confronts the hellacious ability of Thiago Santos in UFC 239’s main event, while the co-feature sees Holly Holm attempt to play spoiler once more against towering”champ-champ” Amanda Nunes.

UFC 239’s PPV main card also features a pair of intriguing Welterweight tussles as well as the 205-pound introduction of Luke Rockhold opposite iron-tough veteran Jan Blachowicz. It’s rather late, so do me a favor and just imagine I’ve come up with a clever segue into the numbers.

What Went Wrong at UFC on ESPN 3?
As it turns out, a fighter coming off of a layoff may have improved in their time away. Who knew? Amanda Ribas’ wrestling demonstrated far, far better than it was before her UFC signing, permitting her to bring her Brazilian jiu-jitsu to bear and completely dominate Emily Whitmire. This undid Jared Gordon’s great work against Dan Moret, sadly, but at least it’s only a minor reduction.
UFC 239 Opportunities For Your Undercard:
Predictions! UFC 239 Fight Pass ‘Prelims’ Preview
Predictions! UFC 239 ESPN ‘Prelims’ Preview
Arnold Allen (-370) vs. Gilbert Melendez (+310)
Claudia Gadelha (-225) vs. Randa Markos (+185)
Marlon Vera (N/A) vs. Nohelin Hernandez (N/A)
Song Yadong (-240) vs. Alejandro Perez (+200)
Edmen Shahbazyan (-600) vs. Jack Marshman (+450)
Ismail Naurdiev (-500) vs. Chance Rencountre (+400)
Julia Avila (-240) vs. Pannie Kianzad (+200)
Ideas: Well, that’s a good deal of statistical mismatches to sift through, and they aren’t especially safe mismatches to wager on. Gilbert Melendez has not had a good performance in years, but can beat Arnold Allen if he gets his wrestling going. Randa Markos has a habit of overachieving. Alejandro Perez has preternatural fortune with all the judges. Jack Marshman includes a hell of a punch. Chance Rencountre has a similar fashion to someone who’s defeated Ismail Naurdiev.
Having said all of that, Julia Avila might be the only sensible investment. “The Raging Panda” is an absolute beast moving up from a late-notice opponent who’s struggled to make weight before. I believe Avila will make some noise at 135 lbs and ought to demonstrate that with a dominant victory.
