Bigfoot vs Gonzaga Odds
|Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva||-115|
The online betting site MyBookie.ag have released betting odds for BKFC 8. ‘Bigfoot’ Silva opens as the slight favourite. Bet $115 on ‘Bigfoot’ for a chance to make $100 in profit. We prefer the underdog here, with Gonzaga currently as a (+125) underdog. Bet $100 on Gonzaga to make $125 in profit.
Silva (19-12), is currently on a five-fight loss streak. His last win was at UFC 190 in 2015, his chin was clearly gone around the mid-2000’s. However, Bare Knuckle is a whole different ball game. The chances of getting KO’d are less likely and this could work in Bigfoot’s favour if he fights a smart fight and uses his height and reach.
Gonzaga (17-12), who also challenged for the UFC heavyweight title at one point of his career, announced his retirement from MMA after losing to Derrick Lewis in the UFC, but came back in May 2018 to lose to Aleksander Emelianenko via TKO.
According to BKFC president David Feldman: “I am very excited to have these two legends competing in the BKFC squared circle… They have fought and beat some of the best fighters in the world and now they will fight each other. Tampa is a great fight market and we are thrilled to be able to host another event there. The fans in Tampa love BKFC and we plan on giving them another great show.”
BKFC 8 is co-headlined by Jim Alers vs Julian Lane.
