After a rare multiple-week hiatus, the UFC is back in action this Saturday for Fight Night 212, also known as UFC Vegas 62.

The card will serve as a warmup for next week's massive UFC 280 pay-per-view, and despite it not being loaded with big names, there are still plenty of opportunities to win some money.

Let's take a look at the betting odds for the full fight card, and then I'll give you my best bet for the main event.

Alexa Grasso vs. Viviane Araújo Fight Card Odds

Alexa Grasso vs. Viviane Araújo Prediction and Pick

Alexa Grasso enters the fight on a three-fight win streak, but she has struggled with wrestlers in her career. All three of her losses came against strong wrestlers, and she was even taken down three times in her recent win against Maycee Barber.

If she faced a striker, bet on her. When she faces a strong wrestler, I'd recommend fading her.

This time, she is set to fight Viviane Araújo, who is one of the best wrestlers in the division. Araújo averages 2.23 takedowns per 15 minutes, and has landed at least three take downs in her two latest wins.

If she sticks to that game plan, I think she's a great bet as an underdog.
