Best bets for UFC Fight Night: Waterson vs. Hill

    Reed Kuhn is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, and strategy and analytics consultant. He is the author of “Fightnomics: The Hidden Numbers and Science in Mixed Martial Arts,” the first book to quantify drivers and performance metrics in combat sports.

When the main event this week was scrapped due to another positive COVID-19 test, two ranked strawweights stepped up to fill the void. Both are coming off split decision losses to higher-ranked opponents in the top 10. The winner will hold a spot in the top 10, and the loser probably will bounce to the bottom of the list.

So, a lot is at stake for them. The market odds are super tight and in slight disagreement with the rankings.

Prelims begin at 5 p.m. ET Saturday on ESPN+, and the main card starts at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
