UFC Fight Night is set to get going this weekend from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, April 29 at 7 p.m. ET. There is a 11-bout main card highlighted by a bantamweight fight between Yadong Song and Ricky Simon. Also notable on the main card is a welterweight fight between Josh Quinlan and Trey Waters.

Quinlan (6-0) is coming off a first-round KO of Jason Witt last August in his UFC debut. The former Dana White Contender Series competitor stands at 6’0”, has a 73” reach along with a 53% striking accuracy. A strong power puncher, Quinlan has the ability to stun just about anyone. Quinlan hails from Las Vegas and looks to put on a show in front of his hometown crowd.

Waters (7-1) is making his UFC debut in this one and was a late replacement to the card covering for Ange Loosa who backed out due to undisclosed reasons. Waters fought two weeks ago, defeating Jalen Fuller by way of second-round KO at a Legacy Fighting Alliance showcase. At 6’5” with a 77” reach, the 28-year-old could make a big statement if he pulls off an upset.

Quinlan: -175
Waters: +150

Splits: 92% of handle, 84% of bets on Quinlan

Quinlan could very well move to 7-0 but don’t sleep on Waters. His faulty striking accuracy of 27% is questionable, but he can throw some power shots. Both fighters have knockout power so one play is to take alternate total rounds under 2.5 (-280) and for it not to go the distance (-400). In terms of a winner, take either Quinlan by KO (+110) or Waters by KO (+300) to hedge.
