Erosa: +185

Splits: 58% of handle, 78% of bets on Dawodu

Dawodu (13-2-1) has been trending upward as of late, winning six of his last seven bouts in the octagon all by decision.

Dawodu and his ability to dodge punches while serving up combinations will make it a tough fight for Julian Erosa (27-10). Erosa is looking to continue his good fortune in Vegas, as the 33-year-old has won four of his last five Fight Night appearances. Erosa wanted a shot at higher competition and will get his wish this Saturday in a matchup with Dawodu.
