View Real-Time Sports Betting Odds

UFC on FX 2 will take place from the Allphones Arena at 9PM ET with a main event that features welterweight contenders Thiago Alves (19-8) and Martin Kampmann (18-5). Oddsmakers see this both as a real close race, with Alves getting odds of -140 to win while Kampmann has a money line of +110 to prevail. Alves was a former No. 1 contender in the division, but has been struggling the last few years, winning just two of his last five. Alves is a powerful striker, especially with his legs. Kampmann is a solid all-around fighter that can striker, grapple, and submit. He is coming off a win against Rick Story, which ended a two-fight losing streak. Kampmann has struggled to break into that upper echelon of the division, but if he can make this a grappling match, he can win. If the fight stays on its feet, look for Alves to prevail.

The co-main event of Friday’s event is actually a pair of Flyweight bouts (125 pounds). The UFC is starting the new division in its organization on Friday and having two fights where the winners will go on to square off at a later date to crown the first ever champion at 125 pounds.

The first bout has Joseph Benavidez (15-2) taking on Yasuhiro Urushitani (19-4-6) while the other semifinal features Ian McCall (11-2) taking on Demetrious Johnson (14-2). Benavidez and Johnson are UFC vets, as both have contended for the bantamweight championship in their careers but now will be fighting at a weight that suits them better. Urushitani and McCall are making their UFC debuts, which could play a role in the outcome. Oddsmakers have Benavidez and Johnson as favorites to win. Benavidez has a money line of -750 to beat Urushitani (+550) while Johnson has odds of -325 to top McCall (+265).
