UFC on ESPN 24, also known as “UFC Vegas 26.”
This Saturday’s card felt sneaky-good and surprisingly competitive
despite the makeshift Marina
Rodriguez – Michelle
Waterson main event and despite the loss of Diego
Sanchez last week, but the drama wasn’t quite over. Illness and
blown weight cuts took two more fights off the bill on Friday and
threatened another, as Diego
Ferreira missed weight by a significant amount but will fight
Gillespie at a catchweight instead. In spite of it all, this is
a closely matched card, with some of the tightest betting odds of
the year so far and no unanimous picks from the staff.
Here are the Sherdog staff picks for UFC on ESPN 24.
