MMA Odds and Ends for Monday: Five Crazy UFC Fight Night 32 Prop Bets That Cashed Big

Brandon Thatch UFC Fight Night 32 took place this past Saturday night in Brazil and the card produced a number on incredible finishes, as well as a variety of rare and/or flukey stoppages. A strange night, to be sure, but a good one for bettors, especially when it came to prop betting opportunities. For today’s MMA Odds and Ends, I’ve compiled a list of five prop bets that cashed out big, courtesy of Several Bookmakers. Rafael Cavalcante wins by submission (+1000) In a light heavyweight fight between two heavy-handed brawler, Rafael Cavalcante picked up his first UFC win by hurting Igor Pokrajac with brutal knees and making him tap to strikes. I thought this fight should have been stopped due to a TKO win for Cavalcante, but because the ref waited until Pokrajac tapped to rush in it’s considered a submission win instead, so if you hit that at +1000, congrats on your winnings. Brandon Thatch wins by submission (+800) In a welterweight squash match, Brandon Thatch continued his breakthrough run through the UFC in 2013 by beating up Paulo Thiago so bad that the Brazilian veteran had to tap to strikes. The prop on Thatch to win by submission hit at +800, so nice job if you hit it. If you were betting on Thatch by TKO, keep in mind that this was most definitely a bad beat so don’t feel too hard on yourself. But also realize that in squash matches like this, you do sometimes see submissions via strikes in MMA, so be careful when betting those specific props. Omari Akhmedov vs. Thiago Perpetuo wins Fight Of The Night (+1200) In one of the craziest fights in recent memory, Omari Akmedov and Thiago Perpetuo combined for a rock-and-roller that lasted just a few minutes before Akdmedov eventually found Perpetuo’s chin and knocked him out cold. The prop on this bout to win Fight Of The Night hit at +1200, so beautiful bet if you hit that because this was most definitely the rightful FOTN winner. Adriano Martins wins by submission (+1120) In his UFC debut, Adriano Martins showed tremendous striking, wrestling and ground skills by beating up Daron Cruickshank on the feet before taking the fight to the ground and locking up a rare straight armbar submission. The prop bet on Martins to win by submission cashed at +1120, so if you hit that, good on you because that was tremendous value for a BJJ specialist to get a sub win. Dustin Ortiz wins by TKO (+575) And finally, in the first fight of the night UFC newcomer Dustin Ortiz rallied in round three after being down 20-18 on the scorecards to gain a dominant position on Jose Maria Tome and finish the fight via TKO. I thought Ortiz hit Tome in the back of the head and could have been disqualified, but the referee evidently didn’t care and awarded Ortiz the victory. If you bet on Ortiz by TKO, that hit at +575 so congrats on your winnings, but it’s very possible another ref (like Mario Yamasaki) may have DQed Ortiz.
