Five Props that Cashed Big at UFC Fight Night 122

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 122 prop bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers.

1) Alex Garcia by Submission (+941)

Garcia earned a second round rear naked choke submission victory over highly touted promotional newcomer Muslim Sulikhov and finds himself back in the column with the upset. Many counted the TriStar Gym product out of this contest, but he proved doubters wrong by taking control of the bout with his superior grappling until eventually securing the submission for the tap. Congratulations are due to those wise enough to play Garcia by Submission, as the prop paid out at a whopping +941! I was eyeballing it for a while, as I felt it had value, but for some reason I ended up passing on it, and I am left kicking myself.

2) Kenan Song by T/KO (+566)

Song defeated Bobby Nash via first round knockout in his UFC debut, making short work of his American counterpart. Congratulations are in order here to those of you who played the Song by T/KO prop, as it paid out excellently at +566.

3) Yadong Song by Submission (+542)

Song dominated fellow promotional newcomer Bharat Khandare on the feet until ultimately finishing him with a front choke in the tail end of the opening stanza. It was a phenomenal Octagon debut for Song, who allows those who wagered on him to win by tapout to cash out at a lovely +542.

4) Shamil Abdurakhimov by T/KO (+372)

Shamil Abdurakhimov defeated Chase Sherman via first round knockout after a near year long layoff, and it was an ideal way for the veteran heavyweight to return to the win column. Congrats to those of you who took a shot on the Abdurakhimov by T/KO prop, as it paid out at a solid +372.

5) Wang Guan by Decision (+329)

Guan defeated Alex Caceres via unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards in an impressive promotional debut that saw him nearly stop his veteran counterpart. Congrats to those who took Guan to defeat “Bruce Leeroy” by decision here, as that prop paid out at a nice +329.

A $100 parlay on these five props would have netted $901,179.
