    Aug 25 IURI ALCANTARA +200 (CORY SANDHAGEN vrs IURI ALCANTARA)

    This is a super rare under dog bet for me. Cory Sandhagen (8-1-0) is an MMA fighter out of Aurora, he looked good on the local fight promotions but has not faced any top level fighters, and got spoon fed his first fight; a local fighter in the UFC. Colorados' Austin Arnett "The Golden Boy" who is no longer in the UFC. Austin Arnett lost to Brandon Davis from DW's Contender Series 2017. Sandhagen has also lost to Jamall Emmers from DW's Contender Series 2018: Week 3. whi i dont think got a contract. This is too much of a step up in class and i have no clue why a guy who is 1-0 in the UFC is a plus money by so much with no hype train, its not like he is a Edward Ruth or Justin Gaethje. He has some good kicks and a good liver punch shot punch not much more.

    Iuri Alcântara is an ageless marvel who is not slowing down, Black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (35-9-0, 1NC). In his last fight he beat the shit out of Joe Soto a former Bellator Featherweight Champion and winner of their inaugural Featherweight Tournament and the former Tachi Palace Fights Bantamweight Champion. Alcântara has gone the distance with Alejandro Pérez, Jimmie Rivera, Urijah Faber. (CSAC) flagged Alcântara, after UFC Fight Night: Swanson vs. Ortega (also known as UFC Fight Night 123 in Fresno), of gaining more than 10% of weight from weigh-in to fight day, from 135.4 lbs to 154.6 lbs, following which the CSAC would not license Alcântara to fight another bantam weight bout in California. Alcântara will be able to make the 135 weight cut much better then Sandhagen.
