Here is my two-way parlay for UFC Fight Night 67 in Brazil: Featherweight title bout: Charles “Do Bronx” Oliveira (-270) vs Nik “The Carney” Lentz (+230) Gabe’s Thoughts: Lentz is the better wrestler here, but I think Oliveira is the more well-rounded and superior mixed martial artist of the two. The Brazilian is the better striker, as well as the better submission grappler. More importantly, he is much better at finishing fights, and I like his chances of doing just that tomorrow night. However, if the fight does hit the judges’ scorecards for a decision, I favor him to pick up the nod there. Even if Lentz finds success with his wrestling, I think “Do Bronx” will get rounds scored in his favor for being the more active fighter, as he is constantly attacking off his back with strikes and submission attempts. Oliveira does not rest; he will enter this bout looking for the finish, but if he fails to find it, I think he will still get his hand raised via decision. After the first leg of this two-way parlay cashes, I will make a small hedge with Lentz by Decision (+325). Gabe’s Call: “Do Bronx” by Submission (modified choke, 3:10 round 1) Lightweight bout: Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira (-135) vs KJ Noons (+115) Gabe’s Thoughts: “Cowboy” – or as I like to call him “The Brazilian Cowboy” made his promotional debut on short notice, replacing an injured Josh Thomson at UFC Fight Night 62 just two months ago against undefeated prospect Gilbert Burns. He was a massive underdog heading into the contest and surprised many by getting the better of Burns for the first two frames. Unfortunately for Oliveira, the tables turned in the second, as one grappling exchange was all Burns needed to transition into a belly-down armbar submission for the come-from-behind tapout victory. Despite the defeat, Oliveira won over many fans with his performance, including me. He showed solid striking skills with power to boot, and despite not being as good of a technical boxer as Noons, I give Oliveira a general striking advantage, as I think he could do more damage on the feet. I see the Brazilian winning this bout either by T/KO or on the judges’ scorecards. Considering how tough Noons is to put away, one would like the outcome of the decision a lot more, but personally, I am favoring the knockout tomorrow night. Gabe’s Call: Oliveira by T/KO (punches, 0:41 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Oliveira (-270) and Oliveira (-135) at +138 3u to win 4.15u
