UFC 285 Jones vs. Gane PrizePicks Fighter Prop Bets & Predictions

Mar 3, 2023
Jessica Penne

The UFC resumes operations this Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with UFC 285, following a rough run of UFC Fight Night events to end February. The best plans can occasionally go awry, but it appears that Jon Jones’ long-awaited transition to heavyweight has finally happened and should be a great one. Although Ciryl Gane wasn’t everyone’s first choice for the former pound-for-pound champion’s first heavyweight opponent, this main event is still an intriguing contest.

Our attention to this piece turns elsewhere on the card, however, as we look at three PrizePicks fighter props. For those unfamiliar with PricePicks, it is a DFS-style website that requires at least two props to hit for you to get paid.

Here’s one of my top picks for UFC 285. You can find all of my picks over on BettingPros.

Tabatha Ricci: 45.5 Significant Strikes (LESS) vs. Jessica Penne

This one is on the early prelims and one of the first fights of the night, featuring two strawweight fighters on opposite ends of their UFC careers. Both with significant strikes landed per minute clips of less than three, each of these fighters relies mostly on their ground game, and the fight metrics prove that.

For the favorite Penne, a takedown average of 3.95 per 15 minutes in the octagon will likely once again paint the picture for this fight. I expect her to take this one to the ground early and often, mostly avoiding striking exchanges.
