This is a sample of some of the UFC 189 prop bets that cashed big for bettors. To bet on props like these in the future, go to the ‘Props’ section under ‘Fighting’ at Several Bookmakers. Robbie Lawler wins in round 5 (+3000) In the co-main event, Robbie Lawler stopped Rory MacDonald in the fifth round with strikes to defend the UFC welterweight title. It was an incredible fight from both men, but Lawler threw the more damaging strikes, and the damage added up as he busted open MacDonald’s nose and brain so badly that he couldn’t continue. The prop on Lawler winning in round 5 cashed at a massive +3000. Jeremy Stephens wins in round 3 (+1250) In a featherweight bout, Jeremy Stephens knocked out Dennis Bermudez in the third round with a jumping knee and punches. Stephens missed weight badly and most were counting him out of winning this fight, but he was able to clip Bermudez’ chin and finish him in the third. The prop on Stephens wins in round 3 cashed at +1250. Gunnar Nelson wins in round 1 (+525) In a welterweight contest, Gunnar Nelson submitted Brandon Thatch in the first round in by far the most impressive performance of his career to date. Nelson knocked Thatch down with strikes and then pounced on him immediately on the ground to get a win that should earn him some respect back from fans and bettors after his loss to Rick Story. The prop on Nelson wins in round 1 cashed at +525. Matt Brown wins by submission (+901) In a welterweight contest, Matt Brown submitted Tim Means in the first round with a guillotine choke in one of his most impressive performances inside the Octagon to date. Brown’s really come around as a fighter. He was just a brawler before but now he’s a complete mixed martial artist. The prop on Brown winning by submission hit at +901. Alex Garcia wins by decision (+411) In a welterweight fight, Alex Garcia relied on his wrestling to take Mike Swick down and earn a decision victory. Most figured Garcia would stop Swick but he went with a “safe” gameplan instead as he badly needed to get back in the win column. Because everyone thought Garcia would win by stoppage, the prop on Garcia by decision was undervalued at +411.
