LFA 34 Opening Betting Odds
LFA 34 takes place at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in Prior Lake, Minnesota, on Friday (Mar. 2, 2018) at 7pm ET live on AXS TV. Lightweight champion Robert Watley makes the second defense of his title as he battles Brandon Jenkins
Watley (9-1) won the LFA lightweight title last year defeating Thiago Moises by unanimous decision at LFA 17 in July last year and then followed that up with a third-round TKO victory over Daryl Wilson at LFA 27 in November. The 28-year-old heads into this matchup on a 10-fight win streak, with half of those wins coming by stoppage. Jenkins (11-5) has won three of his last four fights including a unanimous decision victory over Carl Wittstock at LFA 28 in December. "The Human Highlight Reel" competes for his first title.

In the co-main event, Glory MMA lightweight Trey Ogden faces 31-fight veteran Travis Perzynski. Ogden (9-2) is coming off a first-round submission loss to Thomas Gifford at KCFA 26 in December, which snapped his seven-fight win streak. The 28-year-old boasts seven of his nine career wins by submission. Perzynski (22-9) heads into this matchup on a three-fight win streak, including a first-round submission win over Carl Wittstock at LFA 20 back in August. The 29-year-old has only gone the distance once in his last six fights.
