Best Underdog Picks For UFC Fight Night: Font Vs. Aldo

  • William Knight has +130 odds to beat Alonzo Menifield.
  • Darian Weeks is a +110 betting underdog in his fight against Bryan Barberena.
  • Zhalgas Zhumagulov has +220 odds against Manel Kape as a large underdog.

LAS VEGAS – The UFC Apex is hosting yet another UFC Fight Night this weekend, this time headlined by Rob Font and Jose Aldo. The card is littered with underdogs that have betting value.

William Knight (+130) Vs. Alonzo Menifield

William Knight is a powerful puncher who’s able to mix in enough wrestling to find his spots for a knockout. His opponent, Alonzo Menifield is not as well-rounded and should arguably not be the favorite in the fight. However, online sportsbooks tend to disagree.

Knight vs Menifield Moneyline Odds

  • William Knight +130
  • Alonzo Menifield -155

Knight has a 10-2 record with nine career knockouts and while he is a talented and powerful striker, his wrestling is his key to victory. He averages 2.36 takedowns per 15 minutes which keeps his opponents honest and allows him to find the big shot to earn knockouts.

Menifield isn’t the most polished fighter and could get caught lacking at some point in this bout.

Darian Weeks (+110) Vs. Bryan Barberena

Darian Weeks is a big question mark as he’ll be making his UFC debut with an undefeated professional record of 5-0. He’ll be fighting Bryan Barberena, a veteran of the UFC.

Nobody, UFC betting sites included, know just how good Weeks is, but history shows he’ll win if he is any good.

Weeks vs Barberena Moneyline Odds

  • Darian Weeks +110
  • Bryan Barberena -135

Barberena has faced some of the best fighters in the world but has never beaten one. He’s fought Colby Covington, Leon Edwards and Vicente Luque, but lost to each. Most of his wins are against fighters who turned out to be nothing special.

The verdict is out on Weeks but the betting value for Saturday’s card is there regardless.

Zhalgas Zhumagulov (+220) Vs. Manel Kape

Zhalgas Zhumagulov and Manel Kape should be an interesting fight to watch and while it’s tough to argue that Zhumagulov should be favored, it’s easy to say he shouldn’t be as big of an underdog as he currently is.

Zhumagulov vs Kape Moneyline Odds

  • Zhalgas Zhumagulov +220
  • Manel Kape -285

Zhumagulov has lost two of his three UFC fights, but so has Kape.

Kape gets outstruck 3.71 to 4.23 per minute which is never a great sign for someone who’s favored upwards of -300. Zhumagulov is also the better wrestler with 1.40 takedowns per 15 minutes compared to Kape’s 0.86.

This should simply be a fight with odds closer to EVEN for both fighters. The prelims start at 7 p.m. EST on Saturday and can be seen on ESPN and ESPN+.
