Fight Island cards continue to roll on with the third event at Yas Island set for Saturday with the flyweight title on the line in the main event. Deiveson “Daico” Figueiredo, despite testing positive for COVID-19 then getting a negative test, will be taking on Joseph Benavidez for the championship in a rematch from their February bout. I have a preview and pick in addition to all the UFC on ESPN+ 30 betting odds below.
Online sportsbook [ol-sportsbook:bp:48:Bovada:26:Bodog] has released odds for the UFC on ESPN+ card and in the main event, Figueiredo is a -205 favorite with Benavidez coming back as a +165 underdog.
Figueiredo vs Benavidez | Hermansson vs Gastelum | Diakiese vs Fiziev | Lipski vs Carolina | Pantoja vs Askarov | Prelims
Figueiredo (-205) and Benavidez (+165) will playback their February 29 title bout that saw Figueiredo score a second-round knockout victory. Why have the rematch then? Well, Figueiredo missed weight by 2.5 pounds and therefore was unable to compete for the belt. Additionally, the fight-ending sequence that led to Benavidez being knocked out started with an accidental head clash and Joseph had won the first round on all three judges’ scorecards.
Prediction: Deiveson Figueiredo (-205) via knockout

A pair of middleweights looking to get back in the win column will be featured in the co-main event. Jack “The Joker” Hermansson (-110) saw his four-fight winning streak come to a close when he suffered a second-round knockout loss to Jared Cannonier last September. Meanwhile, Kelvin Gastelum (-120) lost to Israel Adesanya for the interim belt last April and followed that up with a loss to Darren Till in November.
After picking up his first UFC victory last time out, Rafael “Ataman” Fiziev (+140) looks to make it two in a row in the Octagon and pick up his 10th career pro win. To do so, he’ll have to end Marc “Bonecrusher” Diakiese’s (-170) two-fight winning streak he’s riding after dropping three fights in a row, the only three losses on his pro record.
Following a victory in her UFC debut in May of 2019, Luana “Dread” Carolina (EVEN) is set to make a second walk to the Octagon looking to extend her six-fight winning streak. It wasn’t as a successful beginning to the UFC for her opponent, Ariane “Violence Queen” Lipski (-130), dropping her first two bouts in the Octagon, but picked a win her last time out in November of last year.
Askar “Bullet” Askarov (+165) lays his perfect 11-0-1 record on the line as he makes his third walk to the Octagon. Looking to slap a one in the loss column, though, is Alexandre “The Cannibal” Pantoja (-205) who would have been the main event replacement had Figueiredo not tested negative for COVID-19.
Prediction: Alexandre Pantoja (-205) via decision
