In a middleweight title fight on the main card, Punahele Soriano and Nick Maximov meet Saturday at UFC Fight Night 200 – also known as UFC Vegas 47 – at the UFC’s APEX Facility. Below, we analyze the UFC Fight Night: Soriano vs. Maximov odds and lines, with picks and predictions.
The bout can be viewed on ESPN+ with the prelims at 4 p.m. ET and the main card starting at 7 p.m. ET.
Soriano is looking to bounce back after a unanimous-decision loss to Brendan Allen last time out in late July. He had recorded first-round KO/TKO victories in his first two fights at the UFC level, with “Puna” knocking out Oskar Piechota and Dusko Todorovic to get his career with the promotion off to a rousing start.
Maximov made his UFC debut Sept. 25, 2021, at UFC 266 when he picked up a Unanimous Decision victory over Cody Brundage. He also had a UD win over Oscar Cota in Dana White’s Contender Series: Season 4, Week 10. He has five finishes in his seven career fights as a professional, with two via KO/TKO and three by way of submission.

UFC Fight Night Soriano vs. Maximov: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Records: Soriano (8-1-0) | Maximov (7-0-0)
Fight result (2-way line or money line)
SORIANO (-200) is a little more expensive than I generally like to wager on a straight-up bet, but it isn’t terribly out of line, especially if you toss it into a parlay.
I also like SORIANO BY KO/TKO OR DQ (+135), as his first wins at the UFC came via KO/TKO, and five of his last seven victories as a professional have ended by way of knockout. Maximov has never lost in his brief pro career, but he also hasn’t faced a fist like Puna.
Take NO (-150): FIGHT TO GO THE DISTANCE, as this one should end by way of a knockout for the favorite. Just two of Maximov’s seven career pro bouts have needed the assistance of the judges, while just two of Soriano’s nine career fights have gone the distance.
