Israel Adesanya and Paulo Costa may be the headlining act, but there is plenty of action for the entire UFC 253 card Saturday, Sept. 26.

This stacked slate features a hot main event and the beginning of a new era in the light heavyweight division, and BetAmerica has the props worth checking out before fight night.

William Knight vs. Aleksa Camur, fight to go the distance (+180)

Though Camur is the favorite, the young prospect is taking a major step up in class against the serviceable Knight.

In his last fight, Camur played it safe against an opponent who doesn’t have Knight’s stopping power.

The two should be wary of each other’s power, so the fight should go the rounds and net a +180 haul.

Brandon Royval to win by points (+700)

Royval could end up scoring the upset of the night against Kai Kara-France, and if he does, it’ll be on the cards.

It’ll take time for Royval to bypass Kara-France’s stand up, but he should be busy enough to score a win. This is a massive payout that deserves a look.

Zubaira Tukhugov to win by points (+175)

Tukhugov’s durability and deeper skill set should serve him well against the big-punching Dawodu.

A moneyline bet for Tukhugov nets -135, but this fight should go the distance and will go in Tukhugov’s favor.

Dominick Reyes to win by stoppage, Round 3 (+900)

Reyes' fight with Jan Blachowicz may be just as competitive as the main event, but Reyes’ class will shine, as he hopes to capture the vacant light heavyweight title.

Reyes has the athleticism and smarts to bypass Blachowicz’s power and earn a stoppage.

Israel Adesanya to win by points (+300)

In our preview for the main event, we discussed Adesanya as a steal, so this is too good to pass up.

There is no way Adesanya will put himself in harm’s way if he feels he is comfortably ahead, and Costa is going to be right there for him to hit all night.
