Following the biggest fight week of the year — and on a holiday week to boot — you might expect the No Bets Barred boys to take a week off and prepare for the UFC’s return to Long Island next week, but that’s not how they roll. UFC Vegas 58 takes place this weekend, and where there’s an event, there are bets to be made.

This week, co-hosts Conner Burks and Jed Meshew are both backing Rafael dos Anjos to upset Rafael Fiziev in “The Battle of the Rafaels,” and they are both also backing Caio Barralho to get the job done in the co-main event against Armen Petrosyan. On top of that, both have a smattering of other plays up and down the main card and the prelims, for what hopes to be another winning weekend.

New episodes of the No Bets Barred podcast drop every Wednesday and are available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and wherever else you find your favorite podcasts. The latest episode can be heard below.
