Tatsuro Taira vs. C.J. Vergara

Flyweight Preliminary Card Bout

Saturday, October 15, 2022 – 04:00 PM EDT at UFC Apex

Taira vs. Vergara Analysis

Undefeated prospect Tatsuro Taira (11-0) is one of the rare Japanese fighters on the UFC roster, and you can guarantee the company wants him to win this fight more than those who’re placing wagers.

Outside of his well-rounded skillset and impressive attributes at the young age of 22, we should be conscious that the UFC will want to push the Japanese MMA market, and the matchmakers could favor the Asian fighter until he reaches a top-level ranking.

C.J. Vergara (10-3-0) is as tough as nails, but his two-fight tenure for the UFC doesn’t present a severe threat to his Saturday afternoon opponent.

With unique bodywork and power behind his punches, he’s no slouch, but the available odds are correctly priced as he’s a +205 underdog.


Taira vs. Vergara: Betting Picks and Odds

The speed, youthful hunger, and grappling offense of this contest should assist Taira in extending his unbeaten streak to 12-0.

Vergara’s path to victory would undoubtedly be a striking game plan, but even then, his Japanese opponent is often underrated in this department.

The available UFC odds with top-rated sportsbooks for a Taira win are currently -245. Given his Brazilian jiu-jitsu expertise, he’s stylistically superior to Vergara and could easily stop this fight via submission in the first five minutes.

Askar Askarov vs. Brandon Royval

Flyweight Main Card Bout

Saturday, October 15, 2022 - 07:00 PM EDT at UFC Apex

Askarov vs. Royval Analysis

Askar Askarov (14-1-1) has been impressive inside the octagon since his UFC debut in 2019. The Russian standout has kept pace with former champion Brandon Moreno and former title challengers Alexandre Pantoja and Joseph Benavidez.

With his only professional MMA defeat coming against the current No.1 contender in Kai Kara-France, he boasts a shameless tenure thus far. He is arguably on the horizon of reaching the prime of his career.

Brandon Royval (14-6-0) owns a 4-2 record since joining the UFC and rarely leaves the octagon without giving the fans sheer entertainment. His constant pressure and willingness to fight often deliver a fight-of-the-night-worthy performance.

Although he’s lost against top contenders Brandon Moreno and Alexandre Pantoja, he’s riding a two-fight win streak and is one win away from positioning himself in the title picture.


Askarov vs. Royval: Betting Picks and Odds

Royval has found a lot of career success from his scrambling and BJJ ability, but now he’s matched with a top-heavy grappler who’s never been stopped via submission in his life.

Askarov should own a striking and grappling advantage, in my opinion. Unless Royval can catch him with a sneaky submission, the Russian should dominate all three rounds, whether the fight is standing or grounded.

The available UFC odds with Bookmakers Review reflect each competitor's skill levels, with Askarov coming in as a -250 favorite. I agree with the pricing and believe there’s value in these odds.
