Five Props that Cashed Big at UFC Fight Night 107

Marc DiakieseFive 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 107 prop bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers. 1) Marlon Vera by T/KO (+825) Vera scored a come from behind head-kick knockout of veteran Brad Pickett in what was the Brit’s retirement bout. Down two rounds on the scorecards heading into the third and final round of action, Vera needed the finish, and he got it with just over a minute left in the fight. A head-kick put Pickett down, and the ground-and-pound that followed made the referee step in and call the action; the same referee who shared the cage with Pickett in his very first career fight. The incredible knockout by Vera put him at two wins in a row in the UFC and allowed those who wagered on the prop to make out like bandits, as it paid out a massive +825. Congratulations to you if you were on this one, as it was the biggest prop to cash at UFC Fight Night 107. 2) Arnold Allen by Decision (+243) Allen out-struck and out-grappled Makwan Amirkhani for the majority of three rounds to pick up a split decision call on the judges’ scorecards, keeping his undefeated record intact and extending his UFC win streak to three. It was another solid outing by the Brit, and fight fans look forward to seeing his next outing inside the Octagon. Kudos are in order to those who took him to win this fight by decision, as it paid out at a pretty price of +243. 3) Francimar Barroso by Decision (+280) Barroso got the better of Darren Stewart on the feet, on the mat and largely against the cage for the majority of three rounds to pick up a unanimous decision victory on the judges’ scorecards in what was a rematch of a bout that ended in a controversial TKO win for Stewart. It was not a pretty performance by the Brazilian, but he got the job done and finds himself back in the win column at 205 pounds. Congrats to those who backed him to win this fight on the scorecards, as it paid out a solid +280. 4) Marc Diakiese by T/KO (+230) Diakiese added another highlight to his reel with a phenomenal one-punch knockout of Finland’s Teemu Packalen, and he now enjoys a three-fight winning streak inside the Octagon, gaining new fans with the $50,000 bonus-winning performance. Fight fans are certainly looking forward to seeing him back in action, and congrats are due to those who took him to win this fight by T/KO, as it paid out at a decent +230. 5) Brad Scott by Decision (+230) Scott bested fellow Englishman Scott Askham both on the feet and on the mat for the majority of 15 minutes of entertaining action to pick up a split-decision victory on the judges’ scorecards. It was an emotional win for the TUF Smashes runner-up, who was coming off a year-long injury layoff and a loss, and he had planned on retiring from the sport if he came up short on Saturday. Back in the win column, he plans to keep this train moving along, and fight fans, myself included, look forward to his next scrap. Congrats to you if you wagered on him to win this fight by decision, especially if you tailed me on the play, as it paid out at a decent +230. A $100 parlay on these five props would have netted $131,194.
