Here is my parlay for UFC Fight Night 52 in Japan: Welterweight bout: Kiichi Kunimoto (-240) vs Richard Walsh (+200) Gabe’s Thoughts: Walsh looked impressive against his TUF Nations teammate Chris Indich at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale just a few months ago, defeating his fellow Aussie via dominant unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards. Kunimoto also impressed in his last outing, scored a first round rear naked choke over Daniel Sarafian in the biggest upset of the night at UFC 174. Simply put, I think the Japanese veteran is the superior fighter in this match-up and has a big grappling advantage over the Australian. I see Kunimoto controlling Walsh in the grappling, likely en route to a unanimous decision victory on the judges’ scorecards. I could see it being a close fight, but I could also see Kunimoto completely dominating. In either case, I see him getting his hand raised in front of his countrymen. Gabe’s Call: Kunimoto by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Welterweight bout: Hyun Gyu Lim (-550) vs Takenori Sato (+435) Gabe’s Thoughts: Simply put, I expect Lim to use his vicious limbs to make quick work of Sato. Lim’s height, reach and striking advantages will play the difference in this match-up. I don’t expect this to make it out of the first frame. Some may feel safer parlaying Lim at -550 but I like the Under 1.5 rounds at -165 a lot more, because again, I am having trouble seeing this fight make it out of the first frame. Only way is if Sato puts Lim on his back and keeps him there, and I don’t think that’s very realistic. Once Sato feels Lim’s knees, it will only be a matter of seconds before the referee is forced to intervene. Gabe’s Call: Lim by T/KO (strikes, 1:01 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Kunimoto (-240) parlayed with Lim/Sato Under 1.5 rounds (-165) for +127 3.65u to win 4.65
