The MMA Vivisection - UFC Vegas 34: Cannonier vs. Gastelum picks, odds, & analysis

New, 5 comments

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are back to break down this week’s UFC event. With picks & odds for every fight on the card. From Jared Cannonier vs. Kelvin Gastelum in the main event down to Sasha Palatnikov vs. Ramiz Brahimaj in the opening prelim.

Another decent sized PPV event from the UFC means another thin fight night card in the weeks following. Jared Cannonier and Kelvin Gastelum will battle to see who can reignite their middleweight contender status in the main event. Otherwise the highlight of the card is a flyweight fight between Alexandre Pantoja and Brandon Royval. Most of the rest is pretty forgettable.

For fans looking to dive deeper into the undercard, however, check out the Prelims Vivi below.
