MINTY BETS: UFC Fight Night takes place this Saturday in Long Island, New York. I'm Minty Bets, and joining me to preview the featherweight main event is none other than Kevin Iole. We've got Brian Ortega as a favorite here at minus 165 versus Yair Rodriguez at plus 140. Now, both of these fighters are pretty evenly matched in terms of striking. They've both faced the same opponents in the past, and they're both coming off of losses, looking to bounce back here. So Kevin, how are you looking at this fight? Is it worth taking the dog here or do you like the favorite?

KEVIN IOLE: You know what? This is a tough fight, but I love Rodriguez in this situation as an underdog. Getting Rodriguez at the plus money, to me, is a bonus. You know, I look at it and I think, you know, it should be a round, even money, a pick 'em fight. I think that's the kind of fight it is.

I'm going to get Yair, who has unbelievable striking. And he just throws strikes from-- you know, you never know the angles that he throws from. And he's a difficult guy to prepare for if you haven't fought him before. So I like Rodriguez in this one. I think he gets it done. I think we're going to go the full five rounds. But I like Yair Rodriguez to win.

MINTY BETS: I like that one, too. Thank you so much, Kevin.

KEVIN IOLE: Thanks, Minty.
