UFC 172 will take place from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET. All odds are according to oddsmakers at BetDSI.

UFC LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT - Jon Jones (19-1) vs. Glover Teixeira (22-2).

Teixeira has the one-punch KO power that is always dangerous to face, but he lacks the all-around skills that Jones possesses. If Jones were to lose, it would likely be because of a KO early in the fight. Otherwise, he should be able to control the bout and even finish Teixeira in the later rounds. Glover hasn’t been pushed into deep waters like this and just doesn’t have the same experience or level of competition that Jones has been up against. UFC 172 FREE PICK – Jon Jones -550

UFC LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT BOUTPhil Davis (12-1) vs. Anthony Johnson (16-4)

In a similar fashion to the main event, Johnson comes in as the underdog, but has explosive power that can be tough to deal with. However, Davis does a good job of avoiding strikes and has the wrestling and strength to keep Johnson on his back. I don’t think this fight will be too fascinating, but I see Davis grinding out another decision win. UFC 172 FREE PICK – Phil Davis -230

UFC FEATHERWEIGHT BOUTAndre Fili (13-1) vs. Max Holloway (8-3)

Fili comes in as the slight favorite and has some buzz behind him, but he is stepping into his first PPV main card bout against a guy that has a lot of octagon experience and is a well-rounded fighter. Holloway is a bit of a gate keeper in the division, as he beats most, but has only lost to the truly elite in the division. I don’t think Fili is in the elite mix yet and Holloway will find a way to grind out the win. UFC 172 FREE PICK – Max Holloway +125
