The world’s premiere MMA organization is headed back to the Lone Star State this Sunday night for UFC Fight Night: Austin, and the top of the billing has the all-action Donald Cerrone (-110) in a pick’em fight with the UFC’s #15 welterweight Yancy Medeiros (-102 up to +125). The co-main event matchup has the promotion’s #9 heavyweight Marcin Tybura (-125) playing the favorite to the #7 Derrick Lewis (+115).
The widest line of the night belongs to (-310) Alex Morono vs. Josh Burkman (+280), with (-305) Oskar Piechota vs. Tim Williams (+275) and (-295_ Sage Northcutt vs. Thibault Gouti (+265) not too far behind. Aside from the main event, it’s looking like the co-main event is migrating towards pick’em odds as well, as Derrick Lewis can be found as high as +125 and as low as +105.

Donald Cerrone vs. yancy Medeiros: Welterweight
Cowboy Cerrone began his UFC Austin betting line as the standalone favorite at -160, but has slowly trickled down to the pick’em line of -110. On the flipside, Medeiros opened up as the underdog at +120, but now plays both sides of the line from -102 up to +125.
Derrick Lewis vs. Marcin Tybura: Heavyweight
Marcin Tybura opened up with a favored line of -130, and ballooned up to -160 before dropping back down to the -125 line that he now resides at. Derrick Lewis started his UFC Austin betting life with a pick’em line of -110, before reaching as high as +140, and then drifting back down to around +115. Lewis can even be found as low as +105 on some betting sites.
James Vick vs. Francisco Trinaldo: Lightweight
James Vick (-240) has really long arms for the division and is awfully crafty at cinching up a Power Guillotine when opponents attempt to take him down. We have often seen Francisco Trinaldo (+220) get busy by forcing his foes up against the fence. That could be a recipe for disaster for the Brazilian, making Vick by Submission @+320 quite the looker.
