Thompson (14-3-1) is the third-ranked UFC welterweight and hoping to get in contention for a title shot against Kamaru Usman after he came up short twice against former champ Tyron Woodley. He faces a challenge from Pettis (21-8-0), the former lightweight champ who is making his debut in the 170-pound division.
Heavyweight prospects Curtis Blaydes and Justin Willis face off in an exciting co-main event. Thompson is a -350 sportsbook favorite (risk $350 to win $100) after the line fell as low as -330, while Pettis is a +275 underdog (risk $100 to win $365) in the latest Thompson vs. Pettis odds. Blaydes comes in as the favorite against Willis at -250 in the latest Blaydes vs. Willis odds.
Before you make any Fight Night 148 picks, you need to hear what SportsLine MMA expert Kyle Marley has to say. Marley won the first-ever ‘ToutMaster’ UFC betting contest sponsored by MMAOddsBreaker and appears regularly on multiple MMA betting and DFS shows. He watches every single fight for every single UFC card and does extensive research before each event.

In the co-main event, Curtis Blaydes tries to get back on the winning track after losing via TKO to Francis Ngannou for the second time back in November 2018. He’ll face the heavy-handed Justin “Big Pretty” Willis. Plain and simple, if Blaydes is successful in getting this bout to the ground, it will be a long or short night for Willis.
