Here is my two –way main card card parlay for UFC Fight Night 46 in Dublin… Flyweight bout: Brad “One-Punch” Pickett (+145) vs Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall (-165) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think McCall’s superior grappling is going to prove to be the difference in this bout, as I see him scoring takedowns and spending enough time in top position to seal rounds en route to a unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards. On the feet, I think it will be competitive, but I give the edge to Pickett, and believe the Brit will get the better of “Uncle Creepy” there, but again, McCall’s takedowns and wrestling will be the difference. Pickett may be able to defend a couple of takedowns, but I think McCall will eventually get the fight to the mat, where he will look to impose his will. Pickett will be no easy out, so I really favor this fight hitting the judges’ scorecards. It could be closer than I’d like, but I feel McCall is capable of doing enough to pull out the win here; though, fair warning, a hometown decision could be in the works. Controversial scoring aside, I think McCall should be closer to -200 in this match-up and think he’s worth a bet as part of a two-team parlay at -180 or better, and at the current line of -165, I do favor him for this particular main card parlay. Gabe’s Call: “Uncle Creepy” by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) Lightweight bout: Naoyuki Kotani (+260) vs “Stormin’” Norman Parke (-320) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think there is a decent chance Parke finally earns his first Octagon stoppage in this fight. Should the Northern Irishman fail to secure a finish, I think he will manage to do enough to pick up a convincing decision on the judges’ scorecards with his superior striking and grappling skills. Aside from getting caught with something, I don’t see Parke losing this contest. I think it’s a solid opportunity for him to bounce back to the win column after his last bout resulted in a draw, due to him having a point deducted for grabbing his opponent’s shorts. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying this will be a walk in the park for Parke (see what I did there?), as Kotani is a dangerous threat on the ground. However, Parke has all the skills to beat him, and he has the heart to go with it, which is why I favor him to get his hand raised on Saturday in Dublin. Gabe’s Call: Parke by TKO (strikes, 1:47 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: McCall (-165) parlayed with Parke (-320) for +110 3.25u to win 3.6u
