UFC Fight Night Denver Odds: Namajunas vs. Cortez


Odds To Win

Rose Namajunas


Tracy Cortez


Can Cortez - +180 on DraftKings Colorado - overcome Namajunas? The 30-year-old was scheduled to originally face Miranda Maverick on July 20, though she was then tapped to replace Maycee Barber at UFC on ESPN 59. Cortez is 11-1 in 12 professional bouts, but oddsmakers still don't like her chances next week. 

Namajunas, the two-time UFC Women's Strawweight Champion, just handedly won her most recent bout against Amanda Ribas on March 23 in Las Vegas. Namajunas is best known for pressuring opponents with jabs and high kicks. Cortez will have to find a way to combat her advanced technical striking and footwork to keep things close in front of the crowd at Ball Arena, no easy task.

The bout will be featured on both ESPN and ESPN+. 

UFC Fight Night Denver Odds: Main Card Odds

Abdul Razak Alhassan (-162) vs. Cody Brundage (+136)

Christian Rodriguez (-205) vs. Julian Erosa (+170)

Gabriel Bonfim (-340) vs. Ange Loosa (+270)

Santiago Ponzinibbio (-205) vs. Muslim Salikhov (+170)

*Odds according to DraftKings Sportsbook as of July 9

The Main Card is highlighted by the likes of Abdul Razak Alhassan and Gabriel Bonfim, both of whom are heavy favorites in their respective bouts. Razak Alhassan has 12 career wins by knockout, so look for him to strike early and often against the likes of Cody Brundage (+136), who will likely have trouble containing the Ghanaian mixed martial artist.

Bonfim (-340) is a submission specialist, but did lose to Nicolas Dalby last November at UFC 231. That should give Ange Loosa (+270) some semblance of hope ahead of their bout.
