MINTY BETS: UFC is back, and we are starting the season off with UFC Fight Night at the Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm joined by Kevin Iole to give us his best bet for the middleweight main event between Nassourdine Imavov, -210, and Kelvin Gastelum, +170. All right, first main event of the year, Kevin. Who's your money on?

KEVIN IOLE: Well, I'll tell you what, Minty, they don't give us an easy start to this. They don't give us a gimme to kind of get some momentum and rolling here, because I think this is a really difficult fight. I like Imavov to win the fight, but that number is really high, right? I'm laying better than 2 to 1, and I don't think he's good enough to deserve to be better than 2 to 1, but, as I look at this, I feel like he matches up very well with Kelvin Gastelum. I think, in the end, it's gonna be a fun, entertaining fight. Whoever makes fewer mistakes is gonna win this. I'm gonna go ahead and lay the money on Imavov. I think that he's the better fighter here. I think he's the fresher fighter here. Gastelum certainly needs a victory, and I'm going to go ahead with Imavov.

MINTY BETS: All right, thank you so much, Kevin.

KEVIN IOLE: Thank you.
