MINTY BETS: We've got UFC Fight Tonight this Saturday in San Diego, California. I'm Minty Bets, and joining me is Kevin Iole to give us his best bet for the bantamweight main event between Marlon Vera, minus 225, versus Dominick Cruz, plus 180. So what have you got on this fight, Kevin?

KEVIN IOLE: I tell you what, I like Dominick Cruz here. I know he is the underdog. I know he's kind of on the back end of a Hall of Fame career. And Chito Vera has really been so hot and has been performing terrifically.

But, you know, Dominick Cruz has that very difficult style. He's fighting at home. I think he knows this is a huge fight for him. If he doesn't win this fight, then I think his hopes of fighting for a title and getting a really significant fight again are probably done. If he wins this one, he's back into the top 5, and he has something.

So I like Dominick Cruz. I think that footwork, the angles he's going to create-- he's going to have to walk a tightrope. He can't afford any mistakes, Minty. If he does, then he's going to get knocked out.

But when have you seen Dominick Cruz knocked out? I like Cruz to win. I'll take that plus money any day of the week with Dominick.

MINTY BETS: Love that plus money pick. Thank you so much, Kevin.

KEVIN IOLE: Thanks, Minty.
