Gabe Killian’s Main Card Parlay for UFC Fight Night 58

UFC-LondonUFC Fight Night 58 Date: December 20, 2014 Arena: Jose Correa Arena City: Barueri, Brazil The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Brazil this Saturday night (Dec. 20, 2014) with UFC Fight Night 58 and will be featuring 12 bouts, including a six-fight main card that will be live on FOX Sports 1 at 10pm ET, with a four-fight preliminary card that will precede it on the same channel at 8pm ET, and a pair of scraps preceding that on UFC Fight Pass at 7pm ET. If interested in making this parlay, or any other wagers for this UFC fight card, you will be able to do so at Several Bookmakerss. Here’s my main card parlay for UFC Fight Night 58 in Brazil: Bantamweight: Mitch Gagnon (+525) vs Renan Barao (-750) Gabe’s Thoughts: Barao is coming of the first loss of his UFC career, where he dropped the UFC Bantamweight title to current champion TJ Dillashaw, and he now finds himself back on the hunt for gold. In his quest to bounce back into the win column, he will be taking on the French-Canadian Gagnon, who is one of the best finishers in the promotion. I believe the Brazilian will have an advantage over Gagnon, regardless of where the fight takes place, be it on the feet or on the mat. He does not possess as much power as Gagnon, but he is the superior striker, as his technical striking and Muay Thai are light years ahead of what Gagnon is capable of on the feet. Barao holds an edge everywhere in this 135 pound scrap, especially in the cardio department, as his conditioning is better than Gagnon’s and may be the difference maker later in the fight, as the Brazilian’s chances of scoring a finish would greatly increase once Gagnon begins to slow down. I expect Barao to get his hand raised at the end of this bout, and I favor him earning the finish, though I would not be surprised to see Gagnon continue to display heart and toughness, not to mention improved conditioning, and take the Brazilian all the way to the judges’ scorecards, where he will likely end up losing three rounds to none. Gabe’s Call: Barao by Submission (rear naked choke, 2:30 round 2) Lightweight bout: Elias Silverio (+140) vs Rashid Magomedov (-160) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think Magomedov is a big step up in competition for Silverio and the toughest test of his professional mixed martial arts career. While he may have a solid outing and display a great performance, I think the Dagestani fighter will ultimately be getting the better of him for the majority of the 15 minutes of action. I believe Magomedov is going to get his hand raised at the end of this match-up, and I think it will likely be a decision. I think he will manage to win every round, the question is if he will edge them or win them decisively. I believe he is the superior mixed martial artist heading into this match-up at and should be able to edge every round, if not make them look more one-sided. My main concern is that Magomedov deserves the win after three rounds of action but Silverio ends up taking a controversial hometown decision. To conclude, I expect Magomedov to get the better of the Brazilian in this match-up and hand him the first loss of his professional MMA career. Gabe’s Call: Magomedov by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Renan Barao (-750) parlayed with Rashid Magomedov (-160) for -118 3.75u to win 3.15u
