The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to a fan-attended Fight Night event in Columbus, Ohio, for a highly stacked fight card.

The UFC odds are now available for us to delve into some perfect prop UFC picks for UFC Fight Night 205  – an event headlined by a heavyweight contenders’ bout between Curtis Blaydes and Christopher Daukaus.

Matt Brown vs. Bryan Barberena

UFC Welterweight Main Card Bout

Saturday, March 26, 2022 – 10:00 PM EDT at Nationwide Arena

Matt "The Immortal" Brown (23-18-0) is 41 years of age and has been competing at the sport's highest level for close to fifteen years. To call him a legend would be an understatement. While Brown hasn't had the glory of lifting UFC gold, he's provided fight fans with unforgettable moments whilst fighting through multiple generational talents.

Bryan Barberena (16-8-0) is a legend in his own right, but he stems from an era of the sport where Brown was already an established, battle-tested roster member.

With that said, much like his Saturday evening opponent, highlight reels and unmissable moments in UFC history have played out during Barberena's career, as he's faced some of the most dangerous welterweights on the planet such as Vicente Luque, Colby Covington, Leon Edwards, and Randy Brown.

Fight Breakdown

Fighting in his home state of Ohio, we should anticipate the best version of Matt Brown that is possible, given his age and longevity.

While I favor Brown in the striking and grappling department, and I believe he walks out victorious, the most approachable betting prediction would be an expectation that this fight doesn't reach the judges' scorecards.

Barberena and Brown are both warriors, but they've equally been through countless wars that have taken their toll on the longevity of both men.

UFC Fight Night 205 Odds Analysis

The available UFC odds with Bookmaker Review favor this fight to end inside the distance with a -155 price tag, but the price is still acceptable. When considering Matt Brown has been involved in one decision since 2015, the available odds become even more tempting.

Neil Magny vs. Max Griffin

UFC Welterweight Preliminary Card Bout

Saturday, March 26, 2022 - 10:00 PM EDT at Nationwide Arena

Neil Magny (25-8-0) has enjoyed the previous decade competing with the UFCs finest welterweights, and while he has dropped in and out of the top-ten rankings, he remains one of the most experienced and well rounded 170lb fighters on the roster.

Max Griffin (18-8-0) is dangerous; the power threat is always present. However, when it comes down to experience and diversity, he lacks these factors when compared to his opponent this weekend.

Fight Breakdown

In the most brutally honest way, Griffin ultimately has one path to victory, and he'll have to rely on this fight staying on the feet for fifteen minutes to achieve it.

Magny has options, and in the sport of MMA, one-dimensional fighters rarely survive the test of time. With a taxing grappling potential at his disposal, a size and experience advantage on his side, it's challenging to envision Griffin walking away as the successor in this bout.

UFC Fight Night 205 Odds Analysis

The available betting odds with Bookmaker Review favor Magny, and rightfully so. The 34-year-old veteran out of the Elevation Fight Team has all the skills to nullify the dangers that Griffin can present.

To raise the odds, take Magny to win with the assistance of the judges' scorecards. Griffin is tough; Magny isn't known as a prolific finisher; I expect this one sees all three rounds.
