Natan Levy vs. Mike Breeden
UFC Lightweight Preliminary Card Bout
Saturday, April 30, 2022 – 09:05 PM EDT at UFC Apex
Betting Pick Analysis
Natan Levy (6-1-0) returns to the octagon following a debut loss to Rafa Garcia, an unfortunate introduction to the UFC roster but one that holds zero shame.
Levy's karate background and potent wrestling offense can threaten many lightweight competitors. Although Garcia wasn't one of them, the level of competition is undoubtedly dropping down a class this Saturday evening.

In my opinion, Mike Breeden (10-4-0) is fortunate to have received a UFC contract. The 33-year-old fighting out of Glory MMA and Fitness lost his Dana White Contender Series bout and then stepped in as a short-notice replacement to get knocked out in the first round.
When 40-year-old Nick Compton, with a 12-8 record, nearly finished Breeden at FAC 8, I didn't believe he'd see the light of day to one day earn a UFC contract.
If we completely neglect the skillsets of each man and strictly judge the experience of Levy and Breeden, Levy has faced much stiffer competition whilst he notably owns the more dependable martial arts background.

The available betting odds with Bookmakers Review favor Levy, and rightfully so, but we're still receiving a price tag that boasts significant value, and I'm confident the Israeli can get the job done.
UFC Pick: Levy to win (-181) with BetOnline
Gina Mazany vs. Shanna Young
Saturday, April 30, 2022 - 09:05 PM EDT at UFC Apex
UFC Women's Flyweight Preliminary Card Bout
Betting Pick Analysis
Gina Mazany (7-5-0) has shown countless flaws since making her promotional debut in 2017, but an ongoing trend supports the 3-5 UFC record – the level of competition she's faced. Most of her losses have been against the upper echelon of competitors, and whenever the level is dropped, she dominates.

Shanna Young (7-4-0) is two years younger than Mazany with a similar record. Still, with only two UFC bouts on her record, she hasn't come close to facing a comparable level of opposition and has still lost both of her UFC appearances.
UFC Pick: Mazany (-180) with BetOnline
The available UFC odds with Bookmakers Review support Mazany, and I agree. Mazany will own a strong wrestling advantage with a much larger frame to assist her in this area of the fight. We have witnessed Mazany slow down in the later rounds; however, I don't believe Young has the presence nor pressure to force Mazany into overexerting herself.
- Levy to win (-181)
- Mazany (-180)
