UFC Fight Night 153 takes a trip to Stockholm, Sweeden and after a the week break we had (which seemed like a year) It’s that time again where we take a closer look at this weeks notable underdogs.

<div><h2 align="center"><strong>The Dogs Odds</strong></h2><p><strong>Makwan Amirkhani (2.00 – 1/1 @ William Hill) vs. Chris Fishgold (1.80 – 4/5 @ William Hill)</strong></p><p>14 days is long time to wait between events, I’m not sure I can handle anymore week offs from the UFC as the units burn in my pocket waiting for the underdogs each and every weekend.</p><p>The first fight I’m interested at UFC Fight Night 153 will be Makwan Amirkhani who fight’s out of SBG Ireland versus Chris Fishgold, the English born Featherweight who trains with Next Generation UK.</p><p>I was backing Chris in his previous win against David Teymur, but this time round I think he might be out of his league. I do think this is a great matchup and both guys are great grapplers, and to be honest… I think the grappling exchanges will be the decider in these 3 round Featherweight bouts.</p><p>I do believe that Makwan is very underrated, with five fights in the UFC Makwan only came up short one time when he lost a close split decision against a super tough Arnold Allen who has remained undefeated ever since.</p><p>SBG have some great striking &amp; BJJ coaches so I can only believe his striking will be improving through each fight game that takes place, Makwan possess the higher level of grappling so combine those two facts and it cooks up a recipe for victory here in my opinion.</p><p>Chris Fishgold tends to hold a less than average gas tank, stamina isn’t one of his strong suits and unless he can secure an early submission, I feel like Makwan can out class him to a decision victory. Makwan has some awesome transitions and takedown offence, the fight IQ that David Teymur didn’t hold in his tool belt in his loss to Fishgold is something Makwan doesn’t need to worry about.</p><p style="text-align:center"><img alt src="https://i.imgur.com/GmAnPvG.png" style="width:750px;height:345px" /></p><p style="text-align:center"><br /><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="UFC Betting Odds"><strong><em>Take Makwan Amirkhani @ [2.00] [1/1] [+100] with William Hill</em></strong></a></p><p style="text-align:center"> </p><p><strong>Frank Camacho (1.91 – 10/11 @ Bet365) vs. Nick Hein (1.91 – 10/11 @ Bet365)</strong></p><p>Before you roast me, I am fully aware these odds do not propose a clear underdog. With another fight card full of close odds and very well priced favourites, this is the best your getting from me and technically Frank is the underdog because he opened up at <strong>2.00 +100</strong>.</p><p>Nick Hein is a gritty tough fighter from Germany but works with only a few tools. Nick has a great overhand and some tailored striking. Frank would possibly lose the striking battle with Nick but this is MMA and alongside a 7-inch reach advantage Frank steps in as the higher-level grappler.</p><p>With not much worry about in the form of a knockout, I think Frank can setup a game plan in this spot where he out grapples Nick Hein and avoids any reckless exchanges. With that said, maybe Frank isn’t so scared of the striking considering he has the size advantage and Nick tends to go the full three rounds in majority of his fights. On top of that, Frank does have more career victories by way of knockout than Nick does even though Hein is touted as the more advanced striker.</p><p><strong><u>Some statistics below you may find interesting </u></strong></p><ul> <li> <p>Frank has a 7-inch reach advantage</p> </li> <li> <p>Nick Hein has gone to decision in 7 of his previous 8 fights</p> </li> <li> <p>Frank Camacho is dropping down a weight class</p> </li></ul><p>Almost instantly I had a weird feeling about Nick Hein’s chances in this fight, considering he does not finish his fights it’s almost giving him an automatic lower chance to win the fight with less paths to victory. Pop you unit on Frank this week and enjoy UFC Fight Night 153.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;😱 WOW 😱&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Frank Camacho and Damien Brown go out swinging after a three-round brawl!&lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/UFCSydney?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#UFCSydney&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/HJikqlVQ9g\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/HJikqlVQ9g&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— UFC on BT Sport (@btsportufc) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/btsportufc/status/932285106433036288?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;November 19, 2017&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p><p align="center"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="UFC Betting Odds"><strong><em>Take Frank Camacho to win @ [1.91] [10/11] [-110] with Bet365</em></strong></a></p><p align="center"> </p><p>UFC Fight Night 153 will take place this Saturday night 1st June live from the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.</p><p>If you would like to check up on any underdogs or odds not mentioned in this article then click <a href="http://www.oddsmarket.com/fighting">HERE</a>.</p><p>For some of the best odds available at UFC Fight Night 153 check out <strong><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="UFC Betting Odds">William Hill</a>.</strong></p></div>
