UFC Fight Night 32: The Smart Bets

UFC Fight Night 32: The Smart Bets

Headlined by a legendary main-event between Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson, UFC Fight Night 32 offers quite a few match-ups that look to come with some juicy odds to take advantage of. Taking place in Brazil, look for the native-fighters to shine through and potentially overcome great odds in some match-ups. This should be an action-packed card so lets take a look at the betting odds, and go through a few smart bets that I believe to be solid.

Betting Odds (From

Vitor Belfort -100

Dan Henderson -130


Cezar Ferreira -100

Daniel Sarafian -125

Dustin Ortiz +105

Jose Tome -115


Smart Bets: 

Dustin Ortiz over Jose Tome at +105

Usually it’s not a good idea to place a pick on a guy making his UFC debut, but I have lots of confidence in the newcomer flyweight. Ortiz has some solid experience fighting in notable promotions like Strikeforce, King of The Cage and Tachi Palace, and even has a bout against Ian McCall in his resume. Having already fought twice this year, Dustin Ortiz will be warmed up and ready to end his year big with what should be a promising performance against a slugger in Jose Tome, who fell short in his UFC debut. Ortiz is a Roufusport prodigy, and should look to make a solid debut.

Rony Jason Bezerra over Jeremy Stephens at -120

While he is the favored fighter in this bout, these are fairly generous odds considering the fact that Jeremy Stephens has not looked at all lately while Rony Jason has been on fire. Undefeated in the UFC, Bezerra is a well-rounded fighter with an emphasis on grappling and definitely has the experience to hang with the tough and gritty Jeremy Stephens, who will most likely be grounded at if he can’t pull off a spectacular knockout.

Paulo Thiago over Brandon Thatch at -125

Many were quick to jump on the bandwagon of Brandon Thatch in his knockout of the night award winning debut, but he’s making a drastic step up in competition by taking on Paulo Thiago. Thatch is a phenomenal striker, don’t get me wrong, but he showed that he has a tendency to get wild. Thiago, a man also known for getting wild on the feet, will be looking to open Thatch up, and take him down into a world that should be one-sided, favoring the Brazilian Paulo Thiago.

Vitor Belfort over Dan Henderson at -100

Henderson has the slight edge here but when you break this fight down, there isn’t much other than the odds that he does indeed have the edge in. Belfort is younger, more explosive, and more well-rounded than the aging Dan Henderson who could potentially be fighting a bit past his prime here.
