UFC 166 ‘Fight of the Night’ Betting Props

Jessica EyeUFC 166 ‘Fight of the Night’ Betting Props UFC 166 from the Toyota Center in Houston, T.X. produces a stacked 13-fight card that is guaranteed to produce excitement throughout the evening. For the most entertaining bout of the night, the UFC will be awarding a $50,000 bonus. The option to bet which fight at UFC 165 will win the $50,000 Fight of the Bonus can only be found at Several Bookmakerss. I believe the top contenders for this prize are: Cain Velasquez vs Junior Dos Santos +350 — This rematch is the rightful frontrunner for the award, considering how exciting their first Fight of the Night meeting was. Dos Santos backers will want to stay away from this prop, though, as his most likely route to victory is a KO, and should he get that, you would likely be kissing this ticket out the window. That is, unless he gets the finish in the later rounds, but against the cardio machine Cain Velasquez, an early finish is his best bet. Diego Sanchez vs Gilbert Melendez +450 — This fight is guaranteed to produce fireworks. These are both very exciting fighters who are never in a boring fight. Sanchez himself owns five Fight of the Night honors, and Melendez in only his second UFC bout, will be looking to notch his first. I think that more often than not, these two will produce the most exciting fight on this stacked card. Daniel Cormier vs Roy Nelson +800 — Neither of these heavyweights looked good in their last appearances inside the Octagon, but they are both more than capable of putting on very exciting performances, and I think that will likely be the case when they clash. Cormier and Nelson are well-rounded fighters with good chins and they will both be looking to make an impressive exit in the heavyweight division, as they step down to light heavyweight, and no better way to do that than with a Fight of the Night-winning performance. Gabe’s FOTN Play: There is a chance that the award could go to either the flyweight fight or the womens fight, but I think the three aforementioned bouts are much more likely to cash than those two, or any other fight on the card. That said, I will be recommending bets on two of the three mentioned plays; 2u on each Sanchez/Melendez +450 and Cormier/Nelson +800, so if the lightweights cash, we’re up 7u, and if the heavyweights cash, we’re up 14u, but if neither cash, we’re down 4u. Basically, risking 4u to win 7u/14u.
