UFC Vegas 89 is serves up 13 solid bouts this Saturday, March 23, 2024 at 7:00PM EST on ESPN+.

Below are our UFC Fight Night predictions for Ribas vs. Namajunas, including odds, picks and expert best bets.

As always, our UFC betting predictions aren't just looking for winners - we're looking for betting value. We had another fantastic showing last week with this same approach, and tonight's UFC Fight Night picks shouldn't be any different.

Without further ado, let's get into our UFC Fight Night betting preview, headlined by our Amanda Ribas vs. Rose Namajunas pick for the Main Event.

All odds are provided by DraftKings Sportsbook, who's running a “Bet $5, Get $150 Instantly” promo you can claim to play our picks with.




UFC Fight Night Predictions & Betting Picks: UFC Vegas 89, Ribas vs. Namajunas

UFC Fight Night returns to the Apex facility for a flyweight bout in the women's division. Amanda Ribas and Rose Namajunas are both experienced and highly-ranked.

Namajunas, a former two-time champion, will make her second appearance in the 125-pound weight class. Ribas doesn't have the same caliber of career credentials and will be headlining a UFC Fight Night card for the first time.

Frankly, I think Rose is the much better fighter, but let's see how that translates to our full UFC Fight Night predictions and best bets.




UFC Fight Night Best Bet: Ribas vs Namajunas - Rose Namajunas ITD (+140)

Rose Namajunas has more experience, has been five rounds before, and is the much more technical
striker. Ribas is tough and will move forward through punches to try to land her takedowns, but I
think she is outclassed here.

Namajunas probably doesn’t get it done early, but once we get into the third or fourth round I think she is able to land the knockout. My UFC Fight Night best bet is Namajunas to win Inside The Distance (ITD).




UFC Fight Night Prediction: Billy Quarantillo vs Yuseff Zalal: Quarantillo and Over 1.5 Rds (+115)

Billy Quarantillo has basically infinite cardio and uses it as a weapon against his opponents. He
likely doesn’t win the first round, but I expect him to win the second and third rounds of the fight.

Quarantillo is currently -110 to win, but if you want to get a little greedy, you can add that the fight goes
over 1.5 rounds as well to bump his odds up to +115.




UFC Fight Night Parlay: Williams and Shabaziyan to win (+135)

I'm looking at this two-leg UFC Fight Night parlay. Let's touch on both bouts.

First, Karl Williams vs. Justin Tafa. Williams is the superior fighter in every aspect except for power. However, I think his cardio and wrestling are going to lead him to get the win here.

The second leg of this UFC Vegas 89 parlay is Edmen Shahbazyan vs. AJ Dobson. Shabaziyan is taking a major step back in competition here. When he has faced better fighters towards the top of the division, he was able to win in the early parts of fights. I think he's the better fighter. Dobson doesn’t push the pace enough to break Shahbazyan, so I expect Edmen to get it done.

Both fighters are favored at a little under 2:1 odds, but I'm confident enough to pick Williams to win and Shabaziyan to win that I'll combine them in my favorite UFC Fight Night parlay.




UFC Fight Night Best Bet At Long Odds: Montserrat Rendon vs. Darya Zheleznyakova - Zheleznykova ITD (+230)
Let’s make it back-to-back long shot bets!

Last UFC Fight Night, we cashed after hitting on Amorim by submission. Tonight, I’m taking Zheleznyakova. She looks to finish fights, because she knows she is in trouble if she gets taken down. She also has way better striking skills than Rendon.

I think Zheleznyakova ends up winning this fight by KO at some point in the first two rounds, which should give us another nice payday at plus odds.
