Mounir Lazzez vs. Gabriel Bonfim Odds
Mounir Lazzez takes on undefeated Contender Series vet Gabriel Bonfim on the UFC 283 preliminary card.
Lazzez hopes his 2023 campaign will be busier than years past, but he faces a stiff test in Bonfim, who’s a modest favorite.
Let’s look at the matchup.

The younger Bonfim – Gabriel – seemingly has the higher ceiling between the two debutant brothers.
He enters Saturday with an undefeated record and a 100% finish rate.

Bonfim’s grappling upside is seemingly baked into the line, and I don’t recommend a bet on either side of this fight.
His hands are underrated, and I think the striking will be competitive, but I expect Lazzez to land more volume at kickboxing range. His four-inch reach advantage should prove the difference.
Lazzez has shown solid first-level takedown defense too, but one successful takedown may be enough for Bonfim to finish the fight. And while Bonfim has shown questionable cardio, I’m not sold on Lazzez’s stamina either.
Lazzez vs. Bonfim Pick
Bonfim by submission (projected +198, listed +220 at BetRivers) is a decent round-robin piece.
Otherwise, I’m happy to simply watch this one.
