UFC Fight Night 211: John Castaneda vs Daniel Santos Betting Information
Known in MMA circles as “Sexi Mexi,” Castaneda (19-5) is 2-1 inside the octagon. He made his octagon debut against Nathaniel Wood in July 2020 and lost via unanimous decision. The 30-year-old did not lose hope following the setback as he delivered a big first-round technical knockout win over veteran Eddie Wineland in February 2021. Almost a year later, he forced Miles Johns to submit via arm triangle choke in the third round. Castaneda’s all-around brilliance in his two wins served notice to the UFC fight circles, especially in the bantamweight division. Fourteen of his wins did not last the distance with eight ending via knockout and six concluding in submission.
Daniel Gustavo Santos (8-2) is looking to bounce back from his loss against Julio Arce in UFC 273 in April. Arce overwhelmed Santos with more accurate strikes good enough for a unanimous decision verdict. Before his debut in the UFC, Santos has fought nine times in the independent circuit and won eight of them. The Brazilian is a striker that has four of his wins ending by knockout. He will have his hands full against Castaneda, who has experienced winning in the UFC cage. Santos needs to outwork his foe to earn his first win inside the octagon and secure more lucrative bouts in the future.
