Five Props that Cashed Big at UFC Fight Night 121

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 Fight Night 121 prop bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers.

1) Nik Lentz by Submission (+1520)

Lentz scored arguably the biggest win of his professional mixed martial arts career by submitting former Bellator lightweight champion Will Brooks with a guillotine choke in the second round of their bout. It was an impressive, come from behind win for Lentz, who finds himself back in the win column following a unanimous decision loss to Islam Makhachev in his last Octagon out. Congratulations are due to anyone who was courageous enough to take a shot on this prop, as it paid out royally at +1520!

2) Adam Wieczorek by Decision (+890)

The Pole picked up a razor-thin unanimous decision win over Anthony Hamilton in a bout that could have easily gone the other way, especially considering the split decision calls on other matchups on the night that were not as close as this one. Major congrats to anyone wise enough to play Wieczorek by Decision, as the prop paid out handsomely at +890.

3) Frank Camacho by Decision (+380)

”The Crank” earned his first UFC victory with a split decision call over Australia’s own Damien Brown in a ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus winning performance, though it is worth noting that Camacho missed weight, therefor giving up his $50,000 check for the bonus. It was an incredible back and forth war that had the crowd on it’s feet, and if you were lucky enough to be backing Camacho to win this one on the scorecards, then congratulations are certainly in order here, as you made out with a solid +380!

4) Fabricio Werdum by Decision (+257)

Werdum defeated Marcin Tybura via unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards following five one sided rounds of action. The win puts the former UFC heavyweight champion on a two fight winning streak following a unanimous decision loss to Alistair Overeem. Congrats are due here to anyone who backed Werdum to win this heavyweight scrap by decision, as the prop paid out nicely at +257.

5) Nadia Kassem by Decision (+229)

Kassem defeated Alex Chambers via unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards in an extremely close, back and forth battle. It was an impressive promotional debut for Kassem, who looks to make some noise in the UFC, though it may likely come up a division up at flyweight. Congratulations to those of you who took her to win this fight on the judges’ scorecards, as the prop paid out at a sweet +229.

A $100 parlay on these five props would have netted $904,081.
