I’ve spent more than 40 hours researching fights this week, and for the most part, I’ve drawn a complete blank. This week is not good for betting.
My research has meant that I’ve watched a ton of footage on all the fighters competing on the new Dana White Tuesday Night Contender series, as well as Bellator 181 on Friday, Invicta FC 24 on Saturday and UFC Glasgow on Sunday. Despite all this work, I’ve only managed to find one fighter who I feel confident betting.
Around 10 years ago I was sponsored to play medium stakes No Limit Poker online. As part of this sponsorship, I was assigned a Mentor who had been a professional Poker Player for many years. During my time working with him, he gave me a lot of good advice that I still use in MMA Betting to this day. One of the best pieces of advice that he ever gave me was “Sometimes the best bets are the ones that we do not place.”
It is crucial on weekend’s like this that we do not become complacent and force bets just for the sake of wanting to gamble. I know that it is very tempting to place bets on UFC cards, but trust me when I tell you that there are no safe bets on UFC Fight Night Glasgow. I’ve watched an absolute ton of footage this week, so trust me when I tell you not to put your money in harm’s way.
The next two weeks look great for betting with UFC on FOX 25 and UFC 214 giving us several solid opportunities to make money. Let’s not take any unnecessary risks on UFC Fight Night Glasgow, when we have some great opportunities to make solid profits in the very near future.
I also want to remind you that this weekend is a HUGE opportunity to make money in Live Betting. I hope you join us in our Live Betting Feed during the fights to take advantage of our highly profitable Live Betting Tips.

Bobby Nash vs Danny Roberts Betting Tip and Prediction
Before I get into my breakdown for the fight between Bobby Nash and Danny Roberts, I want you to take a look at two of Nash’s recent fights:
As you can see, Nash is tough and he hits very hard, but his striking defense is bad.
You can get away with this lack of defense on the regional MMA circuit, but fast, powerful counter strikers like Danny Roberts can inflict a serious amount of damage when someone like Nash recklessly enters Boxing range.
Danny Roberts has been training with Henri Hooft for the last 2 years and he seems to make significant improvements from fight to fight. He should be able to easily win this fight by using his more technical striking to stay on the outside and chip away at Nash.
We should win this bet easily if Roberts can avoid getting KO’d.
