UFC Fight Night is set to take place from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, June 3, at 7 p.m. ET. A pair of flyweights are set to face off as Tim Elliot and Victor Altamirano will compete on the main card. The full card has six bouts highlighted by a main event featuring top-10 featherweights #3 Kai Kara-France and #7 Amir Albazi. All fights will be streamed on ESPN and ESPN+.
Elliot (18-12-1) is a southpaw striker who defeated Tagir Ulanbekov by way of a unanimous decision last March at UFC 272. Elliot has a 66” reach and a 44% striking accuracy. He is ranked #11 in the flyweight division.
Altamirano (12-2) is a fairly young prospect who after losing his UFC debut has won back-to-back fights. In his latest bout, he defeated Vinicius Salvador by way of a unanimous decision a few months ago this March. He has a 70” reach and 58% striking accuracy.

DraftKings Sportsbook Odds/Predictions
Splits: 48% of handle, 62% of bets on Elliot
The splits are leaning toward Elliot, but he may be on upset alert in this one. Altamirano has advantages in reach and punches at a more efficient clip. Both fighters have shown the ability to go the distance and I’d lean toward Altamirano getting this one by decision or him directly on the moneyline.
