Uriah Faber has been one of the most recognizable fighters in the UFC for the past decade. He has 16 fights in the promotion and is noted for his resilience inside the octagon and affable nature outside of it. Faber called it a career in December of 2016 following a win over Brad Pickett, but the Sacramento resident couldn’t resist the urge to compete. Faber will make his return Saturday night in front of his hometown fans against Ricky Simon in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 155 at the Golden 1 Center. The main card is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET. Faber (34-10) is an underdog at +250 (risk $100 to win $250) to win his comeback in the bantamweight battle, as Simon is a -300 favorite (risk $300 to win $100) in the latest Faber vs. Simon odds. The main event on the 12-fight UFC Fight Night 155 card also features top-ranked women’s bantamweight Germaine de Randamie (+145) taking on fourth-ranked Aspen Ladd, who is the -165 favorite in the de Randamie vs. Ladd odds. You need to hear from SportsLine MMA expert Kyle Marley before making your own UFC Fight Night 155 picks.
Marley won the first-ever “ToutMaster” UFC betting contest sponsored by MMAOddsBreaker and is in contention to win this year’s contest. He also appears regularly on multiple MMA betting and DFS shows. Over the past year, $100 bettors who have followed Marley’s picks are up nearly $23,000.
Marley has been massively profitable in 2019. Over the past three weeks, he has compiled a stunning record of 28-7, netting his followers a profit of more than $1,400. Last week at UFC 239, he accurately predicted that Jon Jones and Nunes would be successful in their title defenses. He also correctly called Michael Chiesa’s dominant unanimous-decision victory over veteran Diego Sanchez in their welterweight clash on the main card.
At UFC Minneapolis two weeks ago, he accurately predicted Francis Ngannou’s knockout of Junior dos Santos in the main event and also picked Joseph Benavidez winning his rematch with Jussier Formiga in the co-main event. Anyone who has followed Marley’s advice is up huge.
Now, with UFC Fight Night 155 fast approaching, Marley has carefully studied every matchup, identified the best value in the UFC odds and released his MMA picks for every single fight. He’s sharing those selections only at SportsLine.
Marley knows the UFC Fight Night 155 main event will have a major impact on the future of the bantamweight division, as the winner is likely to get a title shot at Nunes. The current champion further cemented her growing UFC legacy with her knockout of Holly Holm last week.
But de Randamie, 35, also has a place in UFC history because she was the first titleholder in the women’s featherweight division. She beat Holm for the belt in 2017 and never lost the title in the octagon, but was stripped of it due to inactivity and reportedly for a refusal to fight Cris Cyborg. In her previous bout, she beat Raquel Pennington by unanimous decision in November.
Ladd, 24, is considered a rising star following three impressive UFC victories in a 20-month span, receiving performance awards for the past two. She earned a Fight of the Night bonus in May for her decision victory against Sijara Eubanks in a rematch of their clash in the Invicta promotion. Ladd also received Performance of the Night for her knockout of Tonya Evinger in October. You can get Marley’s confident Ladd vs. de Randamie picks at SportsLine.
For UFC Fight Night 155, we can tell you Marley is backing Karl Roberson (-225) to defeat Wellington Turman (+185) in a middleweight clash. Roberson (7-2) has lost two of three and is looking to bounce back from his January loss to Glover Teixeira. Turman (15-2) makes his UFC debut after having success in a variety of MMA promotions.
“Roberson is the better striker and the much more dangerous kickboxer. If this fight stays standing, then I like Roberson by knockout or decision,” Marley told SportsLine.
Marley also has strong picks for de Randamie vs. Ladd, Faber vs. Simon and every other bout on the UFC Fight Night card. You can get each one at SportsLine.
