maryna-moroz-ufc-fight-night-64Five crazy prop bets is a column featured on after every major MMA event that highlights the biggest underdog prop bets to cash out from that card. Here’s five crazy UFC Fight Night 64 prop bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers. Mirko Cro Cop wins in round 3 (+1425) In the main event, Mirko Cro Cop was able to come back after a tough start to TKO Gabriel Gonzaga in the third round of their heavyweight rematch. Cro Cop is 40 and is clearly nearing the end, but for one night he was able to turn the page and look like he was 30 years old again. The prop on Cro Cop wins in round 3 cashed at a massive +1425, a great get for anyone who had the guts to lay cash on it. Jimi Manuwa wins by decision (+584) In a light heavyweight bout, Jimi Manuwa won the first decision of his career, this time taking home a clear-cut UD over Jan Blachowicz. Manuwa admitted after the fight he had injuries going into the bout, but he did what he needed to do to win. The prop on Manuwa to win by decision cashed at a huge +584, a nice get for anyone who bet it. Maryna Moroz wins by submission (+950)/Moroz wins in round 1 (+1275) In a women’s strawweight bout, Maryna Moroz picked up a huge upset victory, submitting Joanne Calderwood in the first round with an armbar. Moroz wasn’t given a chance by anyone heading into this fight but clearly she’s extremely talented and is a sure-fire title contender at 115lbs. The props on Moroz by submission at +950 and Moroz wins in round 1 at +1275 both cashed big for anyone who was smart enough to bet them. Anthony Hamilton wins by decision (+475) In a heavyweight bout, Anthony Hamilton used his wrestling and ground and pound to edge out Daniel Omielanczuk over the course of three rounds for a decision win. Most expected this fight to end inside of 15 minutes so the prop on Hamilton by decision was available at big odds of +475. Congrats to anyone who took a stab on that. Aleksandra Albu wins by submission (+482)/Albu wins in round 2 (+575) In a women’s strawweight bout, Aleksandra Albu submitted Izabela Badurek with a guillotine choke in the second stanza for her first UFC win. Typically women’s fights go the distance, especially at 115lbs, so to see Albu get this stoppage was a surprise. Not surprisingly, the lines favored her to win a decision, so the props on Albu by submission at +482 and Albu wins in round 2 at +575 both were undervalued.
