UFC 170 Picks – Preview and UFC Predictions On The Main Card


Ronda Rousey is a huge favorite when she takes on Sara McMann as we start the UFC 170 Picks off in Las Vegas on Saturday. This bout is the main bout of 5 of them on main pay-per-view card. As we look at morefights on the main card it is Daniel Cormier vs. Patrick Cummins, Demian Maia vs. Rory MacDonald, TJ Waldburger vs. Mike Pyle and Robert Whittaker vs. Stephen Thompson. Plus there is going to be six fights on the preliminary card, 4 of them can be seen on Fox Sports 1 and two if you have the UFC Fight Pass.

UFC 170 PicksLet’s look at the main card and UFC 170 picks. Ronda Rousey -400 vs. Sara McMann. This is the main event with both fighters coming in unbeaten as Rousey is 8-0 while McMann is 7-0. Rousey is now the biggest star in the UFC and it is hard to argue with her success. She wins all her bouts by armbar and most don’t last long. McMann does have the skill on the ground to make this interesting but it is just hard to go against Rousey.

Daniel Cormier vs. Patrick Cummins. Cummins is taking this fight on short notice and it is a great opportunity for him. Cormier is a huge favorite in this bout and it is hard to see any

Rory MacDonald -290 vs. Demian Maia. This might end up being the only good fight on the main card. MacDonald is 15-2 in his career while Maia is 18-5. MacDonald is a big favorite in this one but based on how he looked against Robbie Lawler it is hard to lay nearly 3-1 on him. MacDonald will try and win this fight on his feet because he will likely lose it on the ground. I don’t get the odds on this one at all as I think it should be more like a pick. I will take Maia as the big underdog at BetDSI sportsbook.

Mike Pyle -200 vs. TJ Waldburger. These two veterans probably don’t belong on the pay-per-view part of the card. Pyle is 25-9-1 while Waldburger is 16-8. Pyle is 38 years old but he has looked decent of late. Both fighters will look for the submission and since I don’t see much difference in the two I will take Waldburger as the big underdog in UFC odds.

Stephen Thompson -130 vs. Robert Whittaker. Thompson comes into this fight with a record of 8-1 while Whittaker is 11-3. Thompson has been getting fighters who really don’t excel on the ground and that is the case again in this one as Whittaker is nothing special on the mat. Thompson has the edge in striking and he should get the win in this one.
