Headlining the card is a heavyweight title fight between defending champion Blagoy Ivanov and UFC alum Shawn Jordan. In the co-main, Lance Palmer puts his featherweight hardward on the line against undefeated Andre Harrison, and Timur Valiev and Bekbulat Magomedov will vie for the vacant 135-pound strap.
Let’s take a look at your MMA odds at BookMaker.eu and break down the night’s notable fights.
Bet on WSOF 35 odds
Blagoy Ivanov -125
Shawn Jordan +106
Over/under 1.5 rounds, over -115, under -105
Just how good is Ivanov, really? His 14-1 pro MMA record - with five KOs and six subs - is impressive, but take a look at his resume and you actually don’t see any opponents of note. What we do know is that he’s an agile big man with skills on the feet and the mat. But the fact that Shawn Jordan is one of his toughest tests to date says a lot.
Jordan is a former UFC fighter, who owns notable wins over Derrick Lewis, Jared Cannonier and Pat Barry. He’s a headhunter through and through, with 15 KOs in 19 career victories. He’ll be gunning straight for Ivananov’s chin, but is probably too one-dimensional to really be a threat to the champ.
MMA odds pick: Ivanov to win at -125
Lance Palmer -135
Andre Harrison +115
Over/under 4.5 rounds, over -150, under +130
Harrison has the chance to become one of WSOF’s homegrown stars. He’s got a compelling 15-0 pro record, though most of that was achieved in the smaller orgs like Ring of Combat and Titan FC. Plus, his habit of fighting to decision makes him a tough sell to fans who crave finishes. But if that undefeated record keeps growing, Harrison will be impossible to ignore.
He’ll put his unblemished record on the line against Lance Palmer, who is 4-2 under the WSOF banner. A solid grappler with six submission victories in 11 career wins, Palmer will likely test Harrison on the mat. However, it’s Harrison that owns almost every physical advantage in this matchup.
MMA odds pick: Harrison to win at +115
Donavon Frelow +600
Bekbulat Magomedov -1200
Over/under 3.5 rounds, over -120, under +120
Magomedov has got a shiny 17-1 pro record, but he’s just 1-1 in WSOF. Most of his victories were earned in tiny regional promotions, so it remains to be seen how he fares regularly against higher caliber competition in North America. The fight against Frelow won’t prove much if he wins, however.
Frelow comes in on very short notice as a replacement for Timur Valiev. Having fought just over a month ago, earning a split decision win against Zeke Enrique at Gladiator Challenge, Frelow last fought for WSOF in 2105, when he lost to Magomed Bibulatov for a chance to win the inaugural flyweight championship. He’d have a hard time beating the much more experienced Magomedov even with a full training camp.
MMA odds pick: Magomedov to win at -1200
