UFC 166 BettingThe sports betting event UFC 166: Velasquez Vs. Dos Santos 3 is shaping up as the event of the year , not only for what it represents closure heavyweight trilogy in recent times , but also by the table was assembled in their environment.

The preliminaries will be no exception . The proposal includes an interesting clash 135lbs female in the presence of fighters and strongly identified with the late Strikeforce promotion .

Almost a year after his last show , Strikeforce still alive through their former fighters strongly identified with the franchise that now nourish UFC template .

We start with the middleweight showdown between Tim Boetsch ( 16-6 ) vs. CB Dollaway , two veterans who seek to raise their status in the 185-pound rankings . Battle it between two excellent fighters , very strong for this division , with the incentive that Boetsch has hands of steel and has been used very well that way to end many of his fights .

KJ Noons 's one name that comes to our mind when we think Strikeforce evenings . This remarkable 11-year veteran career auspicious debut was not expected , falling in unanimous decision at UFC 160 against Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone and being overcome in the striking , somewhat surprising considering Noons credentials in this department. Have they affected the nerves of the debut ? Impossible to know. The truth is that KJ was tired in the later rounds and his cardio is usually not a concern for him.

 

George Sotiropoulos will be the next hurdle in a match where the loser goes home . It seems incredible that the Australian is between the rock and considering that a few years ago was 15 minutes of play the lightweight title . His winning streak was a record in the category ( 7) until he met Dennis Siver . From then on was never the same : " Everything was very negative from the loss to Siver . A lot of negativity in my workouts . My mind has been in place in the last two or three games , "explains Sotiropoulos on its delicate present .

KJ has won just one of their last six combat but has for the fact of not having been terminated in any of them . Hardly remain in the franchise if it fails to overwhelm his opponent . The same applies to the Australian.
Another who ever walked the catwalk Strikeforce is Nate Marquardt , a man who will be remembered as one of the best middleweight in history. The three-time middleweight champion won Pancrase Strikeforce welterweight title with a resounding performance against Tyron Woodley but failed to defend the same against Tarek Saffiedine . On his return to the UFC , "The Great" was knocked out in the first assault by the powerful Jake Ellenberger .

Marquardt will have a test in his career against Hector Lombard Cuban who came to the UFC as the major acquisition of 2012 but still has a score to settle with his fans. Decided to go down to 170lbs by council directive UFC and will not have to deal with giants like Okami or Boetsch , two of his executioners . In this new division , Lombard lose some of his explosiveness but compensate with speed and endurance . The Cuban is confident ahead of his future: " I ​​have confidence in me. I am not losing to anyone in the future "says Cuban has been hard hit by the trade press in recent months.

The female presence is ensured by the clash between the experienced Sarah Kaufman and Jessica Eye. Kaufman has faced the cream of the sport and among its most notable victories include the names of Alexis Davis , Liz Carmouche , Roxanne Modafferi , Shayna Baszler , Miesha Tate , among others. Former bantamweight champion Strikeforce is one of the few women who have considerable power in his fists to finish the match with a decisive blow . Eye has not faced the same level of opposition that Kaufman but his record speaks for itself (10-1 ) . His most notable win was against Zoila Gurgel at Bellator by way of a standing kata gatame . Eye Will the revelation of Saturday 19 ?
