Five Props that Cashed Big at UFC Fight Night 103

Nina AnsaroffFive 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 Fight Night 103 prop bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers. 1) Augusto Mendes by Decision (+401) Mendes returned from an extended layoff following his short-notice Octagon debut, when he suffered the first loss of his pro career via first-round knockout at the hands of current UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt. In his return Sunday night in Phoenix, he took on Frankie Saenz and defeated him via split decision following three closely contested rounds of action. Mendes managed to earn his first UFC victory and took home an extra $50k for ‘Fight of the Night’ honors. Meanwhile, those who took him to win by decision cashed out at a very nice +401. 2) Tony Martin by Decision (+227) Martin defeated Alex White via unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards to make it two in a row for himself inside the Octagon. Many questioned his cardio, but it held up for all three rounds, as he was able to out-grapple White for the majority of 15 minutes of action to pick up the unanimous nod. Congratulations are definitely in order to those who gambled on Martin to take this fight on the scorecards, as most bettors felt he was likely to win by submission. 3) Nina Ansaroff by Submission (+656) Ansaroff stepped into the Octagon with her back against the wall and snapped her two=fight winning streak by dominating and ultimately submitting Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger via rear-naked choke in the third and final round of action. She followed up nicely on her girlfriend Amanda Nunes’ win over Ronda Rousey with the impressive performance. Those who wagered on her to win by submission made out with a very sweet +656, so congrats if you were on that one! 4) Joachim Christensen by T/KO +255 (+255) Christensen defeated Bojan Mihajlovic via TKO in the third round to pick up his first UFC victory. He dominated the fight until catching Mihajlovic with a clean uppercut in the third that put him down and out of commission. It was an impressive performance and victory by Christensen, who kindly allowed those who wagered on him to win this fight by T/KO to cash out at a solid +255. 5) Cyril Asker by T/KO (+350) Asker made short work of Dmitry Smoliakov in this contest, finding himself in mount position early and scoring a first-round TKO finish. The Frenchman impressed in his second UFC appearance in getting his first taste of Octagon victory. Those who wagered on him to defeat the Belarussian by T/KO cashed out at a cool +350. A $100 parlay on these five props would have netted $197,755.
