Five Props That Cashed Big at UFC Vegas 7

Five Props is a column featured on after every major MMA event that highlights the biggest underdog prop bets to cash out from that card. Here are five UFC Vegas 7 bets that cashed big based on the closing odds from across various sportsbooks.

1) Shana Dobson by TKO (+2800)

With a losing career record and a three-fight losing streak and being fed to the wolf that is top prospect Mariya Agapova, this wasn’t supposed to happen. Shana Dobson was supposed to take her first round beating and that would be the last time we ever see her inside the Octagon, but she had other plans. Dobson survived the first round onslaught from Agapova, then turned the tables on the Kazakh fighter as she faded, securing a second round TKO victory in the process in the biggest upset in UFC history. Dobson by TKO was the clear prop of the night at +2800.

2) Trevin Jones by TKO (+1200)

Trevin Jones was another lamb that was supposed to be brought to the slaughter on 24 hour’s notice against talented Dagestani fighter Timur Valiev. Valiev almost finished Jones in the first round, but Jones turned the tides, cracking Valiev in the second round and following up to secure a shocking upset TKO victory. Jones’ TKO was good for a sweet +1200.

3) Joe Solecki by Submission (+750)

Austin Hubbard had faced several talented wrestlers and grapplers already in his UFC career and had come out unscathed, so that’s what made Joe Solecki’s dominant first round submission against him so impressive. Solecki by submission closed at a cool +750.

4) Daniel Rodriguez wins in Round One (+650)

Daniel Rodriguez was almost the one who was finished in his fight against Dwight Grant, but he gritted through a couple scary moments, then blasted Grant late in the first round to score a TKO victory, finishing Grant for the first time in his career. Rozenstruik in round one paid +650.

5) Frankie Edgar by Decision (+385)

Frankie Edgar is no stranger to seeing the scorecards, but his decision victory was more unexpected because analysts assumed he was done at 37 years old and dropping to bantamweight for the first time. It seemed more desperate to stay relevant than a legitimate career move, but it paid off when he was able to eat Pedro Munhoz’s best shots and dish out combinations to earn a split decision nod. Edhar by decision closed at +385.

A $100 parlay on these five props would have made you a millionaire with $11,656,269.
