UFC Fight Island 7 Betting Tips and Predictions Part 1

Warlley Alves vs. Christian Aguilera

UFC Welterweight Bout

UFC Fight Island 7 takes place on Saturday, January the 16th, live from Yas Island in Abu Dhabi

Warlley Alves

Age: 30

Nationality: Brazil

Record: 13-4-0

Height: 5ft 11"

Reach: 72"

Gym: Refit Pro Fighters

Notable Gym Members: Raoni Barcelos

Current Streak: 1 loss

Wins by KO/TKO: 3

Wins by Submission: 6

Decision wins: 4

The Ultimate Fighter Season 3 Alumni and current UFC welterweight contender Warlley Alves returns to the octagon with a vengeance on the mind. It has been over twelve months since we last saw Alves, a submission stoppage loss to Randy Brown caused the Brazilian to regroup and take some time off.

Still young in his career, Alves has fought the division's top-ranked fighters and is the only person to defeat Colby Covington besides champion Kamaru Usman.

Christian Aguilera

Age: 29

Nationality: USA

Record:14-7-0

Height: 5ft 9."

Reach: 73"

Gym: Team Oyama

Notable Gym Members: Marlon Vera, Alex Perez & Ricky Simon

Current Streak: 1 loss

Wins by KO/TKO: 11

Wins by Submission: 0

Decision wins: 3

UFC newcomer Christian Aguilera might not have the UFC experience, but his gym and fight team certainly have the expertise to assist Aguilera during his career at the top.

Aguilera will make his third appearance for the UFC against a well-seasoned competitor, to claim victory would be huge for the Atlantic City native.

Fight Prediction

A considerable drop in the competition level for Warlley Alves should favour the Brazilian's chances of returning to the win column.

Aguilera will post a knockout threat to the Brazilian but not a striking offence that he won't be able t handle.

Punahele Soriano vs. Dusko Todorovic

UFC Middleweight Bout

UFC Fight Island 7 takes place on Saturday, January the 16th, live from Yas Island in Abu Dhabi

Punahele Soriano

Age: 28

Nationality: Brazil

Record: 7-0

Height: 5ft 11"

Reach: 72.5"

Gym: Xtreme Couture

Notable Gym Members: Francis Ngannou, Justin Gaethje & Joseph Benavidez

Current Streak: 7 wins

Wins by KO/TKO: 4

Wins by Submission: 2

Decision wins: 1

Punahele Soriano made his way onto the UFC roster through an impressive 'Dana Whites Contender Series'. A counter striking game full of surprises and a kickboxing style with knockout repercussions could assist this contest to 'fight of the night'.

Dusko Todorovic

Age: 26

Nationality: Serbia

Record: 10-0-0

Height: 6ft 1"

Reach: 74"

Gym: Secutor MMA

Notable Gym Members: N/A

Current Streak: 10 wins

Wins by KO/TKO: 6

Wins by Submission: 3

Decision wins: 1

One of the UFC's freshest prospects Dusko Todorovic will be out to impress in the new year. And whilst on the subject of dangerous striking, Dusko is not to be played with. Just ask current UFC fighter Michel Pereira, who suffered his only career knockout to the man named Dusko.

His UFC was impressive, closing as the heavy favourite Todorovic proved his worth. In the second round, knocking out his opponent gave the dangerous Serbian the perfect start to his UFC tenure.

Fight Prediction

I'm not one for doubting high-level European fighters who stem from a long-rooted MMA background, and Todorovic has the all-around MMA offence worthy of notice.

Soriano will be a real test for Dusko on the feet, but nothing I don't believe he can handle. I expect his odds to drift before fight night deeper into the abyss. Grab the price now while it's hot.
