UFC 184 Rousey vs Zingano
UFC 184 is tomorrow night at the Staples Center in LA, California. I’m excited about watching Rousey and Holm, but other than that the pay-per-view card is relatively weak. It’s also not the best fight card for betting because of the number of big favorites.

UFC 184 Rousey vs Zingano Betting Predictions
Best Bets for UFC 184 – Scott Jack
- Bet Ronda Rousey to Win in R1 –125 (5Dimes) vs. Cat Zingano
Ronda Rousey (10-0) and Cat Zingano (9-0) are both undefeated, but Rousey is way more experienced against top-level competition in the UFC. Zingano is 2-0 in the UFC with two TKO wins. Rousey is 4-0 in the UFC with all four wins coming by stoppage.
Rousey beat Tate in the 3rd round three fights ago, but she has since bounced back with two 1st round TKO/KO wins. Rousey is too quick for Zingano and I expect her to finish quickly. I’m not sure how she’ll win, but I expect it to happen in the opening round.
- Bet Jake Ellenberger –200 (BetDSI) vs. Josh Koscheck
Ellenberger (29-9) and Koscheck (17-8) are both in desperate need of a win after losing three fights in a row. Koscheck hasn’t been in the cage since November 2013 and he’ll have some cage rust. I’m a fan of Koscheck, but at 37 years old his time to retire has come.
Koscheck has been knocked out in his last two fights and Ellenberger has a lot of power (18 TKO/KO Wins). Both fighters like to work in TD’s, as both average around 2.60 TD’s per 15 minutes, but Ellenberger has much better TDD. Ellenberger needs to win and will.
- Bet Tony Ferguson –230 (Bet365) vs. Gleison Tibau
Ferguson (17-3) is 7-1 in the UFC since 2011 with his only loss coming against Johnson. He has won four in a row and three of those have been by stoppage. Tibau (33-10) is a veteran that has strung three decision wins together since losing to Johnson.
Tibau averages 4.26 TD’s per 15 minutes, but Ferguson has 80% TDD. If he can keep this fight standing he’ll easily win, as he has a huge 5’’ reach advantage, he averages over 1.5 SLpM more than Tibau and he has better stand-up defense. Ferguson will win.
- Bet James Krause –175 (5 Dimes) vs. Valmir Lazaro
Krause (21-6) is on the prelim card and he’ll be fighting against Lazaro (12-3). I thought Lazaro looked pretty good in his debut, as he was extremely active, but he still lost to Vick. Krause is only 2-2 in the UFC, but he has wins over Stout and Varner by stoppage.
Lazaro ate a lot of punches in his debut and Krause is an active striker, so he should score a lot of points, which will help if this fight goes to decision. Krause is great at submissions as well. Krause is easily my best bet on the prelims tomorrow night.
- Bet Rousey – Ellenberger – Ferguson – Krause Parlay +266 (Bet365)
I’m sticking with my four picks above and parlaying them together except I’m betting on Rousey ML rather than betting on her to win in R1. You’ll have noticed I’m avoiding Holm. Her odds are insane considering we haven’t seen her fight in the UFC yet.
