Rear-Naked Choke Radio: The Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale Betting Angles

Wanna bet the UFC’s The Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale card?

Audio available for download on iTunes or on Stitcher Radio


The Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale¬†is headlined by UFC strawweight¬†champion Joanna Jńôdrzejczyk and top contender Cl√°udia Gadelha.¬†Rizzo and Kelly dissected the close betting line and discussed reasons for the small spread, seeing as Jńôdrzejczyk has been so dominant since winning a split decision in their first meeting.

The hosts also looked at some underdogs, such as Ross Pearson, who fights former Bellator MMA lightweight champion Will Brooks. Rizzo and Kelly disagreed on a couple of bouts and provided their thoughts on why each selected a certain fighter to win and why they would place their wager on the combatant.

International Fight Week has the UFC hosting three events in as many days. Rizzo and Kelly touched on the best way to capitalize on your bets by starting with solid bets and parlaying between events. They explained why it’s just as important to take time constructing bets as picking the winners.
