The UFC will take all the action to Netherlands

If you are hungry for more UFC combats then September will be a month that will keep you happy. It all starts on a Saturday, September 2 to be exact. The country chosen for this event is Netherlands, in the city of Rotterdam. The main event will be Stefan Struve vs. Alexander Volkov and it is the Russian fighter who is the slight favorite with 1.72 odds, while Struve has 2.10 odds.

The venue for this UFC Fight Night is the Ahoy Rotterdam, a very popular arena that has been renovated through the years and is already a fixture in the city. With a capacity for 15 thousand fans, the arena is more than ready to host the event.

The fight card has suffered many changes in the months leading to the event, the fighters that have been pulled from the card are Abu Azaitar, Islam Makhachev, and Marcos Rogerio de Lima. The UFC was able to find replacements for the two first fighters, but they have not been able to lure anybody to fill in for de Lima.

The other important fights that form part of the program are RustamKhabilov vs. Desmond Green, Leon Edwards vs. Bryan Barberena, and Germaine de Randamie vs. Marion Reneau. To see what the bookkeepers have calculated for these fights have a look here. We will give these bouts a closer look in the paragraphs ahead.

In the Khabilov vs Green fight, the Russian is the favorite over the American with 1.30 odds versus 3.50. The bookkeepers are not giving “The Predator” much of a chance this time, but the New York native can give a surprise. In the Edwards vs. Barbarena bout it’s the British fighter who has the advantage in the odds by the same margin that Khabilov has over Green. We can be sure that Edwards will have more support in the crowds as he will be more close to his home soil.

Finally we have the Germaine de Randamievs.Marion Reneau fight. This is a much anticipated one but the odds are in favor of De Randamie three to one. The Dutch kickboxer has the advantage of fighting at home and the crowd will go crazy when the “Iron Lady” makes her appearance.

So there you have it, the night will be one to remember. Who are your favorites to win the fights? If you make the right bets youcan make some big money.
