In the main event, former light heavyweight title challenger Anthony Smith (35-16 MMA, 10-6 UFC) takes on Ryan Spann (19-6 MMA, 5-1 UFC). Smith is a -180 favorite at Tipico. Our 13 editors, writers, radio hosts and videographers are backing Smith at 9-4 in the picks.

In the co-feature, Devin Clark (12-5 MMA, 6-5 UFC) takes on Ion Cutelaba (15-6-1 MMA, 4-5 UFC) at light heavyweight. Cutelaba is a -160 favorite and has a big 11-2 lead in the picks.

Also on the main card, Mandy Bohm (7-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is our lone unanimous pick in her women’s flyweight fight against Ariane Lipski (13-7 MMA, 2-4 UFC). In a rarity, Lipski is the betting favorite at -125 – and our readers are backing her, as well, despite our staff pickers taking Bohm at 13-0.

Arman Tsarukyan (16-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) is the biggest favorite on the entire card at -850 for his lightweight fight against Christos Giagos (19-8 MMA, 5-4 UFC). He’s also got a hefty 11-2 lead in the picks.

Our most contentious fight is at bantamweight between Tony Gravely (21-6 MMA, 2-1 UFC) and Nate Maness (13-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC). Gravely is a -220 favorite, but it’s Maness who has a 7-6 lead in the picks from our staff members.

And to open the main card, Antonio Arroyo (9-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC) takes on Joaquin Buckley (12-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC) at middleweight. Buckley is a 2-1 favorite, and he’s got a big 12-1 lead in the picks.
