Combate Global’s top picks for the August 5 fight card
Before you tune in to Friday’s Combate Global fight card, you need to see the picks from SportsLine MMA insider Andrew Gombas. With over 1,400 caps tracked by third-party monitoring service Bet MMA, it has shown a 6% return on investment for its subscribers. Over the past two years, his followers have made a profit of over $10,000.
For Friday’s card, Gombas picks Ramos to pick up the win in a 175-pound bout against Castillo. Ramos was chosen for “The Ultimate Fighter Latin America: Season Two” and his only professional loss came against Alvaro Herrera at UFC Fight Night 78, but he has since won all four of his fights by unanimous decision.
“Ivan Castillo is a veteran of the sport and will take on any opponent. Vernon Ramos is a solid fighter who has had a great start in his career. Coming out of Panama, Ramos is tenacious and always looking to finish his opponents. This is a step forward for him, but I think he’s getting there,” Gombas said. Stream the card on Paramount+ now.
