UFC 269 Latest News & Stories – How to watch UFC live, betting trends and best bets

December 9, 2021

The long-awaited UFC 269 in Las Vegas is with us this weekend, and there will be plenty of ways to get in on the action. Many matches will give us answers to some essential questions. When the event is in Las Vegas, then in addition to playing exciting casino games, bettors should expect the event card to be exciting. So this time, Las Vegas will not disappoint you. Therefore, it is worth staying awake and watching the whole event, from the preliminary fights to the main event.

Charles Oliveira vs. Dustin Poirier

The event is led by a fight for the lightweight champion, in which the current champion Charles Oliveira is fighting and defending his title against the second-ranked lightweight fighter in UFC – Dustin Poirier. It is the question of whether Oliveira will continue his streak of 9 consecutive wins and remain champion or Dustin will be inspired by victories over Conor McGregor to finally win the “real” belt in the lightweight UFC category. No doubt that we will witness one exciting bet on Saturday.

Amanda Nunes vs. Julianne Pene

The other fight that will be on the card, and also for the championship belt, this time in the women’s Bantam division, is the fight between the champion and one of the best “fighters” of all time, Amanda Nunes and Julianne Pena. Amanda has “cleaned up” two categories, and now it is difficult to find an opponent for her. Will Julianna be able to threaten Amanda and take her belt? We will see because, in martial arts, everything is possible because one blow changes everything.

Other Interesting Fights at UFC 269 Las Vegas

The fight on the main card, which looks like it won’t last long, is a fight between two hitters Geoff Neal and Satniaga Ponzinibbia. These are the two pay-per-view fighters and big hitters. This fight certainly requires you to have nerves of steel because there is no good betting strategy that can predict what will happen here.

In another exciting duel, we will see the former champion of the “bantam” category, controversial veteran Cody Garbrant, and New Zealander Kai-Kara France. Also, Sean O’Malley will fight against Brazilian Rauliano Paiva. 

Before the main event fights, you will have an opportunity to watch Josh Emmet and Dan Ige. Interestingly, Emmet has not fought for a long time since June 2020, while Ige had three fights in that period, the last one against “Korean Zombie” less than half a year ago, which was a 25-minute war. Whether Ige had time to recover and prepare or Emmet rested too long is a question we are waiting to answer.

Another former champion is fighting at this event – Dominick Cruz, once one of the most dominant champions and fighters in the bantamweight category. His status would have been legendary by now if he had not had terrible and constant injuries for which he fought only once in five years, and those years that were supposed to be his prime. On UFC 269 Las Vegas, his opponent is the experienced and fearless Pedro Munhoz. In the “old school” collision, the question is, who has more fuel and desire?

In the end, what everyone loves, a heavyweight battle, which would be called “one punch, one kill!”. And we expect such a match from Augusta Sakai and Tai Tuivase. Sakai has two heavy defeats from Rosenstruk and Alistair Overeem, but he certainly has more gas than Tuivase, who doesn’t like to get out of the first round. He is in trouble if he doesn’t finish the job by then, but he needs to survive Tuivase cannonade in the first round. Struve and Hardy are still twitching in sleep when they dream about him. 

Overall, it looks like UFC 269 Las Vegas will be one attractive event with many great betting opportunities. So prepare yourself, and register at some best betting sites that offer betting on UFC!
