UFC 170 will take place from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET. All odds are according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv.

UFC WOMEN’S BANTAMWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT - Ronda Rousey (8-0) vs. Sara McMann (7-0)

This should be Rousey’s toughest fight to date. McMann is an Olympic medalist in wrestling and should be able to match the champion’s strength. The key will be for McMann to be able to control Rousey on the ground and not get caught in an armbar. McMann can win this fight by grinding out the champ for 25 minutes, but Rousey has the ability to end the fight at any moment with her armbar. Ultimately, Rousey’s judo ability should help her with McMann’s takedown attempts and I think that will be the difference to give Rousey a successful title defense. UFC 170 FREE PICK – Ronda Rousey -400

UFC LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT BOUTDaniel Cormier (13-0) vs. Patrick Cummins (4-0)

The co-main event doesn’t offer much intrigue for betters. Cormier is an overwhelming favorite due to Cummins taking this fight on such short notice and being very inexperienced. Cummins is a great wrestler, but so is Cormier, and Cormier has much more MMA experience and has faced a lot of tough heavyweights. UFC 170 FREE PICK – Daniel Cormier -1100

UFC WELTERWEIGHT BOUTStephen Thompson (8-1) vs. Robert Whittaker (11-3)

The underdogs don’t look good on paper for Saturday’s event. The fight with the odds closest to even is this welterweight bout, but I feel strong about Thompson. He is a very elusive striker that avoids damage and can hit with power and quickness. Whittaker is a grinder, but I don’t expect him to have the speed to get a hold of Thompson. Look for Thompson to out-point Whittaker with his striking. UFC 170 FREE PICK – Stephen Thompson -140
