Ladd is a -145 favorite (risk $145 to win $100), while Dumont is offered at +125 (risk $100 to win $125) in the latest Ladd vs. Dumont odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Before making any picks of your own for Ladd vs. Dumont 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: Ladd vs. Dumont from every angle and released his top selections. A successful parlay of these three picks would result in a payout of 4-1. 

Ladd (9-1) is a somewhat short-notice replacement for former UFC champion Holly Holm, who withdrew because of a knee injury. Earlier this month, Ladd was scheduled for a fight against Macy Chiasson at 135 pounds but missed weight badly and the fight was called off. This fight will be held at the featherweight limit of 145 pounds.

Dumont (6-1) is coming off a split-decision win against recent title challenger Felicia Spencer in May. She is 2-1 in three UFC outings.

For UFC Fight Night: Ladd vs. Dumont, we can tell you Gombas is backing Danaa Batgerel (-190) to get his hand raised against Brandon Davis (+170) in a battle of bantamweight prospects. Gombas has also locked in strong picks for Ladd vs. Dumont and several other bouts on the UFC Fight Night card. He's also backing one fighter who has plenty of paths to victory! You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks before locking in any UFC Fight Night bets of your own.
