Sakai vs. Spivac: Fight Times, Live Stream Online, Predictions, How to Watch UFC Fight Night

UFC Fight Night is scheduled to kick off this weekend from UFC Apex in Las Vegas, NV on Saturday, August 6 at 10 p.m. ET. There’s a six-fight main card highlighted by a women’s flyweight bout between No. 14 Augusto Sakai and Sergey Spivac.

Spivac (14-3), the Polar Bear, is really starting to find himself as an attacker. Two of his last three wins have come by punch stoppage. Of course, one of them was against former NFL player Greg Hardy, who didn’t have much of a chin. Still, Spivac’s recent surge puts him as a strong -280 favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Sakai (15-4-1) is on a losing streak for the first time in his career and there are fears his confidence may be waning. His last victory came against Blagov Ivanov on a Fight Night card on May 30, 2020. He is a +235 underdog.

Splits: 76% innings on Spivac, 83% bets on Sakai

I’m surprised the odds aren’t much closer on this fight. Sakai has the ground defense that could keep this fight going and if so, he’s still better on his feet than Spivac. Spivac needs to get a quick takedown and drain some of Sakai’s gas tank to get his best shot. If Sakai can stuff it, he’ll win this one and make plenty of underdog bettors happy.
