Two Championship Belts Up For Grabs Saturday Night

UFC 266 Volkanovski vs Ortega Betting Odds, Prop Bets Predictions and Free Parlay Picks

UFC on pay-per-view returns in a major way Saturday night with a couple of co-main events that will see championships up for grabs.

On the men’s side, featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski (22-1) will make his second title defense as he takes on number two ranked Brian Ortega (15-1). These two have some history together which should make for an even more intense fight.

On the women’s side, flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko (21-3) will hope to defend her title for a sixth time when she takes on red-hot third-ranked Lauren Murphy (15-4). The challenger has won five straight fights as she looks to unseat the longtime champ.

Read on to see our picks to win these fights at UFC 266.

Co-Main Event Flyweight:
Valentina Shevchenko -1800 vs. Lauren Murphy +850

Shevchenko is already one of the greatest women fighters in the history of the sport. Although she has three career losses, those all came as a bantamweight. Her list of accomplishments includes terrific victories over other legends of UFC such as Holly Holm and Jessica Andrade.

She is a complete fighter, terrific at grappling, counter-striking and kickboxing. Her superior abilities are reflected in the fact that of her 21 wins, seven are by submission, seven by knockdown and seven by decision.

Shevchenko has the ability to adapt her style to whatever works best against that particular opponent.

A Murphy victory at these odds would be one of the biggest upsets in UFC history. She may have won five straight, but the highest ranked opponent she’s fought was most recently, Joanne Calderwood, ranked sixth in the division.

Murphy is also an all-around fighter, but her skills are just a notch below Shevchenko. Still, expect her to be prepared in what is the biggest fight of her life. All four of her losses were by decision.

Four of Shevchenko’s last six fights have ended in knockouts, but I think this one makes it to the final bell against a talented albeit overmatched opponent.
The Pick: (Shevchenko -1800 & by decision at +215)

 

Main Event Featherweight:
Alexander Volkanovski -185 vs Brian Ortega +150

Volkanovski has not lost a fight since 2013 and a win on Saturday will be his 20th consecutive. He and Ortega found themselves on opposite sides during the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter as coaches and the two almost came to blows on multiple occasions.

Volkanovski is as complete as they come, adept on his feet and also an excellent wrestler capable of a surprise submission moves as well.

Ortega’s only loss came in 2018 to eventual champion Max Holloway in a fight doctors had to stop. He had not stepped into the ring in nearly two years, until taking on the Korean Zombie last October. He showed how well he’s matured in scoring a five-round decision in a fight he controlled, landing an impressive 127 strikes.

Ortega does have ground skills, but he does not use them often and if that’s the case here and the majority of the fight happens on their feet, it is hard to see him keeping up with the superior Volkanovski.

Four of his last five wins have been by decision including two straight over Holloway and that seems the most likely outcome here as well.
The Pick: (Volkanovski -185 & by decision at +120)
