We have one more “warm up” UFC card this weekend until we’re treated to back-to-back stacked events! While this week’s UFC Vegas 41 isn’t stacked to the level of UFC 267 or UFC 268, it still boasts some interesting matchups and enticing betting odds.

Paulo Costa (13-1) is set to take on Marvin Vettori (17-5-1) in a middleweight main event between the two most recent fighters to fall to the current champion, Israel Adesanya. Whoever wins this bout will put themselves back in title consideration.

Paulo Costa vs Marvin Vettori Prediction

Costa was an undefeated 13-0 before running into the middleweight champion. With 11 of his 13 career wins coming via KO/TKO, he displays some of the most potent power in the weight class.

Now he’s going to take on an opponent in Vettori who, while solid all around, doesn’t display any skill at a high enough level to beat a top opponent. His main weapon is his wrestling, but Costa boasts an 80% takedown defense in the UFC so the Italian is going to struggle to win the fight on the ground.

I’m surprised that Costa is the underdog in this fight, so I’ll gladly back him at +130.

Pick: Paulo Costa +130
