On Saturday, July 18, 2015, the UFC heads to The SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland, to cap off a busy eight day of MMA action for UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs. Leites.

This will be the first time the UFC has hosted an event in Scotland and it’s a pretty solid offering for the fans. While there are no fights that will have immediate title implications, the event does feature some of the best up-and-coming European talent the UFC has to offer today and a middleweight main event that could launch someone into title mix atop the division.

For the gamblers out there, this card is packed with pretty tight lines. Cards like this can be difficult to play, but if you are willing to roll the dice on some prop bets, there is good money to be made.

Ivan Jorge, +550 vs. Joseph Duffy, -800

Duffy enters this bout as the biggest favorite on the entire card and rightfully so. At 13-1 with 12 wins by stoppage – including a 38 second submission win over newly crowned interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor – Duffy is one of the best prospects in the UFC lightweight division. Jorge could be dangerous if this fight goes to the ground but Duffy will simply be too much for him on the feet.

Play: At +110, take Duffy to win by TKO/KO

Evan Dunham, +175 vs. Ross Pearson, -210

This co-main event simply screams “Fight of the Night” as Dunham and Pearson are two gritty, tough and talented lightweights. Dunham and Pearson aren’t exactly title contenders, but they are two of the better fighters in the division. Dunham has a pretty advanced ground game but he gets baited into brawls too often. If Pearson can force Dunham to forget about his ground game, then he has a great shot at winning this bout.

Play: Take Pearson to win and at +150 take him to win by TKO/KO

Michael Bisping, -110 vs. Thales Leites, -110

Just when you think Bisping is done, he comes back with an impressive performance. If he could ever put a couple of wins together he would be right in the title mix. But as it stands, Bisping has traded wins and losses in his last eight fights. Coming off of a win over C.B. Dollaway in his last outing, you have to wonder if Bisping has what it takes to break the cycle.

Leites on the other hand is riding an impressive wave. A winner of eight straight including five in a row in the Octagon, Leites looks even better than he did in his first UFC run that earned him a shot at Anderson Silva and the middleweight title.

Bisping is one of the most well-rounded fighters in the sport today, and while that is a huge tool, his lack of excellence in any one area of the fight game has hurt him. Then you have Leites; a supremely talented grappler who has greatly improved his striking over the years. Bisping will be game, but Leites’ weapons are more dangerous.

Play: Take Leites to win, and at +394, take him to win by decision
