The UFC is on a roll as of late as far as exciting events goes. Their past four events going back to UFC 187 have tremendous. Between strong matchmaking and fighters looking to make something happen in the Octagon, the excitement level for the UFC is the highest it has been in a long time.

On Saturday, June 20, 2015, the UFC will look to continue that streak as it heads to O2 World in Berlin, Germany for UFC Fight Night 69: Jedrzejczyk vs. Penne.

There are a lot of people out there who are overlooking this card right now, and it’s understandable. Outside of the women’s strawweight title fight, there aren’t any name fighters that really draw fans in. But on the other side of that, this card does feature some tremendous prospects. Hungry prospects who are looking to make an impact in the UFC generally go for broke to impress.

For the gamblers out there, UFC Fight Night 69 offers up some solid opportunities to make some cash.

Lukasz Sajewski, +140 vs. Nick Hein, -170

Kicking off the UFC Fight Pass main card, undefeated prospect Sajewski takes on Germany’s own Hein. Hein is a tough competitor, but he’s never shown a great killer instinct. Sajewski, on the other hand, is undefeated and three of his last four wins have come in the first round by submission.

The play – Take Sajewski to win

Peter Sobotta, -255 vs. Steven Kennedy, +195

After going 0-3 in the Octagon during his first go around with the UFC, Sobotta came back motivated and ready to prove he belongs. After going 5-0-1 on the European MMA circuit with five wins coming by first-round submission, Sobotta returned to the UFC and defeated prospect Pawel Pawlak. Now Sobotta is ready to make it two in a row in the UFC against Kennedy.

Kennedy is a well-rounded Australian fighter who likes to grapple. The problem with that is Sobotta is a serious player on the ground. With four career losses, Kennedy is in over his head against Sobotta.

The play – Take Sobotta to win

Dennis Siver, -180 vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri, +150

In the co-main event of the evening, featherweight veterans Siver and Kawajiri will battle it out to get back in the win column. Both fighters bring a ton of high-level experience to the Octagon and both men are known for putting on exciting fights.

Siver will have the advantage on the feet and Kawajiri will have the advantage on the ground, so the winner of this bout will be the fighter who can dictate where the fight takes place. Siver’s experience against high-level wrestlers will make the difference on Saturday.

The play – Take Siver to win

Jessica Penne, -500 vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk, -700

In the main event of the evening, champion Jedrzejczyk will look to defend her title for the first time against former Invicta atomweight champion Penne. Penne is an excellent grappler, and if this fight hits the ground the champion will be in a lot of trouble. The problem is, Jedrzejczyk has already dispatched a superior grappler in the form of former champion Carla Esparza.

If Esparza couldn’t get Jedrzejczyk to the ground, it’s likely Penne will fail as well. On the feet, the champion is simply too skilled for Penne to handle.

The play – At -165 take Jedrzejczyk to win inside the distance
