UFC Fight Night 60
The UFC will be back at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado on Saturday for UFC Fight Night 60. Injuries have plagued this fight card and we’re now left with few quality match-ups. However, the main event should be exciting and I want to see Holloway.

UFC Fight Night 60 Betting Predictions
- Bet Brandon Thatch –108 (Pinnacle) vs. Benson Henderson
Brandon Thatch (11-1) is 2-0 in the UFC. He won both of his fights by TKO/KO, but they were both in 2013. Injuries have kept him out of the cage since. Benson Henderson (21-5) lost two fights in a row at lightweight and has now decided to move up to welterweight.
Thatch is taller, has more reach and is bigger than Henderson. Thatch has shown great ability to land TD’s and stop TD attempts. This fight will likely be fought standing up for the most part. As long as Thatch is healthy and shows no cage rust he’ll beat Henderson.
- Bet Max Holloway by TKO/KO +180 (5Dimes) vs. Cole Miller
Max Holloway (11-3) is on another tear, as he has won four fights in a row by stoppage – three of which were by TKO/KO. Cole Miller (21-8) has won two fights in a row, but Holloway is a big step up. Miller has been knocked out twice, but not since 2009 in the UFC.
This fight may go the distance, but with the way Holloway has been fighting I expect him to rock Miller early. Miller has a 6’’ reach advantage, but Holloway is creative with his striking. Holloway is averaging 5.86 SLpM and I expect him to overwhelm the veteran.
- Bet Daniel Kelly +155 (Bovada) vs. Patrick Walsh
Daniel Kelly (8-0) won his UFC debut last November by armbar against Zachrich. The Australian has five wins by submission in his career, but he was also active in the striking department in his opening fight. He’ll be fighting Patrick Walsh (5-1) on the main card.
Walsh won his UFC debut, but just by decision against Spohn. Both fighters are comfortable on the ground, but Kelly has the better striking and if he can keep this fight upright he’ll have a great chance. Walsh has also lost by submission once, so that’s a possibility.
- Bet James Moontasri by TKO/KO +230 (5Dimes) vs. Cody Pfister
James Moontasri (7-2) lost his UFC debut to Joe Ellenberger and I hope he worked out the nerves he had because he looked bad in the fight. Cody Pfister (11-3-1) is making his UFC debut. Pfister last lost in 2011 to Tim Means, but I think he’s outmatched here.
Pfister will look to push the pace in this fight and that could mean trouble for the prospect because Moontasri has shown us that he has power in his punches. He isn’t that active of a striker, but he has power and I expect him to bounce back after his debut loss.
- Bet Holloway – Lentz – Moontasri Parlay +132 (Bet365)
Nik Lentz fights Levan Makashvili on the prelims and should dominate the fight as long as he doesn’t take his opponent too lightly. I have explained why I like the other two fighters already. There are some other big favorites, but I don’t really trust them too much.
