In just a few short days the UFC will return to network television for UFC on Fox: Machida vs. Rockhold. On Saturday, April 18, 2015, live from the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., fight fans will be treated to a thrilling night of fights.

Top to bottom, UFC on Fox 15 is loaded with great fights, but man oh man, is the main card stacked. All four main card bouts have title implications and they feature some of the most notable talent in the UFC today.

As far as gamblers are concerned, UFC on Fox 15 features a main card worth playing. There aren’t any lines that will set you up for retirement, but there’s always money to be made.

Felice Herrig, +115 vs. Paige VanZant, -135

The main card kicks off with a stellar women’s strawweight bout between two absolute knockouts. But don’t be followed by their looks, Herrig and VanZant are two very dangerous women in the cage.

Herrig has a significant experience advantage and her experience against must tougher competition will be a great asset in the cage. But there’s just something special about VanZant. She still has a lot of work to be before she is title ready, but the sky is the limit for the 21-year-old.

Pick: Take VanZant to win

Cub Swanson, -150 vs. Max Holloway, +130

Of all the solid matchups on this fight card, this one has the potential to steal the show. Featherweights Swanson and Holloway are two of the very best in the world that are just on the outside of the title picture looking in.

Swanson will be looking to rebound from his hard fought loss to Frankie Edgar where he saw his title hopes dashed. Heading into that bout Swanson had won six in a row with four wins coming by way of finish.

Holloway on the other hand is looking to build on his impressive five fight win streak. Ever since losing to Conor McGregor in August of 2013, Holloway has been on a roll. Four of his last five victories have come by way of finish and the young Hawaiian looks dangerous.

Swanson’s biggest weakness heading into Saturday is his submission defense, but since Holloway isn’t known for his submission game, expect this bout to be decided on the feet. At just 23, Holloway still have a lot of room to grow, but his striking game is fluid and technical. Swanson will have a power and speed advantage, but if Holloway can utilize his jab to keep Swanson on the outside he should be able to pull this one off.

Pick: Take Holloway to win

Ronaldo Souza, -1250 vs. Chris Camozzi, +800

Originally, Souza was slated to take on former Olympic silver medalist Yoel Romero on Saturday night, but Romero was forced to withdrawal due to a knee injury. Now Souza will face late replacement Chris Camozzi for a second time in the co-main event.

Camozzi and Souza met once before in Souza’s UFC debut; Souza won the bout via first round submission. After that fight, Camozzi would go on to lose three more UFC bouts in a row. That 0-4 run got him cut from the promotion late last year. Since that time Camozzi has won back-to-back bouts via first round stoppage on the local Denver fight circuit. Now Camozzi will be looking to prove that he belongs in the big show.

Souza on the other hand steps into Octagon on Saturday night riding an impressive seven fight win streak with six of those wins coming by way of finish. Souza is one of the most dangerous grapplers in the world, but it’s his ever evolving striking game that has him surging towards a potential title shot.

Camozzi is a serviceable veteran, but he’s not on Souza’s level. Look for Souza with win again in dominant fashion.

Pick: Take the Over on the Over/Under 1 ½ Rounds prop bet

Lyoto Machida, +120 vs. Luke Rockhold, -140

In the main event of the evening, two more top middleweights take the cage as Machida and Rockhold battle it out for a potential middleweight title shot.

After suffering a brutal knockout loss at the hands of Vitor Belfort, Rockhold has established himself as a perennial contender. Winner of three in a row – all by way of stoppage – over stiff competition Rockhold could earn a shot at the title if he can get past Machida.

Since moving down to the middleweight division, Machida has looked spectacular. Outside of his failed first attempt at the middleweight title, Machida has been flawless and he’s even become a more exciting fighter. Since making the move down to middleweight Machida has taken home a “Fight Night” bonus in each of his four outings.

From a technical standpoint, Machida will have at least a slight edge is all aspects of the fight; he’s an underrated wrestler, an experienced grappler and his striking game is on another level. But even with all that said, Rockhold will pull the win out. Rockhold is a special talent and he will put it all together on Saturday night.

Pick: Take Rockhold to win and at +234, take him to win by decision

The BIG Play: At +641 take VanZant, Holloway, Souza and Rockhold for the Parlay
