Ranked middleweight contenders top the card Saturday at UFC Fight Night: Costa vs. Vettori as second-ranked Paulo Costa takes on fifth-rated Marvin Vettori in the main event. The main UFC fight card is set for 4 p.m. ET from the promotion's Apex facility.

Vettori is a -140 favorite (risk $140 to win $100), while Costa comes back at +120 (risk $100 to win $120) in the latest UFC Fight Night: Costa vs. Vettori odds from Caesars Sportsbook.

Before making any picks of your own for Costa vs. Vettori and the rest of the UFC Fight Night card, make sure you check out the MMA predictions from SportsLine MMA expert Andrew Gombas.

Now, he has locked in on UFC Fight Night: Costa vs. Vettori from every angle and released his top selections. A successful parlay of these picks would result in a payout of 7-1

Both fighters are recent title challengers who came up short against champion Israel Adesanya. Costa (13-1) was stopped in the second round of their matchup in September 2020, while Vettori (17-5-1) was on the wrong end of a lopsided decision in June. The winner has a chance of remaining a viable contender in the top-heavy division.

Costa is a power puncher who has seen 12 of his 13 career MMA wins come inside the distance, while the versatile Vettori has nine submission finishes among his 17 wins, along with two knockouts. 

For UFC Fight Night: Costa vs. Vettori, we can tell you Gombas  is backing Francisco Trinaldo (-120) to emerge victorious against Dwight Grant (+100) in a battle of rugged welterweights. He's also backing one fighter to "impose his will" and emerge with a dominant victory!
