The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to the United Kingdom for a highly stacked Fight Night event. The odds are now available for us to delve into some perfect prop UFC picks for UFC London – headlined by a heavyweight contenders’ bout between Tom Aspinall and Alexander Volkov.

Nathaniel Wood vs. Vince Morales

UFC Bantamweight Preliminary Card Bout

Saturday, March 19, 2022 – 01:35 PM EDT at O2 Arena

Nathaniel Wood (17-5-0) looks to avenge his previous loss following a two-year layoff from the octagon. The good news is that he'll be performing for his hometown crowd in London, England.

Wood has racked up a 4-2 UFC record since joining the promotion in 2018; a sleek grappling offense saw the British Top Team standout finish 3 of his 4 wins via submission. With a keen interest in rear naked chokes, opponents of Wood should be conscious of his back-taking ability at all times.

Vince Morales (11-5-0) steps in on short notice to travel across the pond and face the hostile crowd of Great Britain, who're known to support their local fighters with an unruly passion.

Confidence will be on Morales' side, as he's riding a 2-fight win streak with a recent knockout stoppage over the veteran Louis Smolka.

Wood vs. Morales Fight Breakdown

Both fighters own a well-rounded and diverse skillset, but I expect Wood to favor his grappling and submission attempts whilst Morales' will most likely want to seek the opposite and strike for fifteen minutes.

Morales' introduction under the UFC banner was a rear-naked choke loss to Domingo Pilarte, and rewatching that contest does make me wonder if Morales can avoid Wood's tight squeeze with an arena full of English fans chanting to their heart's content.

However, I have noticed the evolution of Morales's game, and I do expect his durability and fight IQ to keep him in the fight. With that said, you're going need a significantly dominating performance to receive a nod from the British judges', making Wood the ideal wager to back with the fight ending by decision.

UFC London Odds Analysis

The available odds with Bookmakers Review favor the Englishman, but a price of -350 is quite steep for any competitor who has undergone such a lengthy layoff.

For the reasons mentioned, we can put our faith in Morales surviving for fifteen minutes, and we can find plus money on Wood winning by decision.

Molly McCann vs. Luana Carolina

UFC Women's Flyweight Main Card Bout

Saturday, March 19, 2022 - 04:35 PM EDT at O2 Arena

Molly McCann (11-4-0) has enjoyed a fruitful UFC career since debuting for the company in 2018, with a 4-2 record to date. "Meatball" will now have the pleasure of fighting in her home country alongside the hype of her teammate Paddy "The Baddy" Pimblett.

Luana Carolina (8-2-0) is a dangerous opponent for McCann. Still, the Brazilian will need to make a statement whilst fighting in London. Without significant damage or clear 10-8 rounds, we expect the British judges' to do what they do best – support their local fighters.

McCann vs. Carolina Fight Breakdown

In the most brutally honest way, the fighting styles and paths to victory could become irrelevant in this bout. Why? Because the UFC rarely makes the trip to England, but when they do, you better believe that the judges aren't going to side with foreign fighters unless the outcome is a dominant performance.

Can you smell that? Yep, it's London's finest home cooking – which we aren't necessarily known for because apparently, all we eat is fish and chips. However, British judges are known for their favoritism in the fight game, and I believe McCann can make this fight scrappy to convince her way into a split decision victory.

UFC London Odds Analysis

The available UFC odds favor McCann, but I sense the ongoing hype around Paddy Pimblett has assisted the betting public in believing McCann is on the same level.

Despite believing Carolina is the better fighter, I don't think she can convincingly win the contest.

UFC Pick: McCann on Points (+125) [1u returns 1.15u profit] at BetOnline
