ufc-156 This is a sample of some of the UFC Fight Night 72 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. Michael Bisping wins by split or majority decision (+1060) The main event of the evening was a tightly-contested five rounder between middleweights Thales Leites and Michael Bisping. This was a really close fight that could have gone either way, but ultimately Bisping was able to take home a close split decision due to his volume striking. The prop on “The Count” winning by split (or majority) decision hit at +1060. Evan Dunham wins by decision (+375) The biggest upset on the card saw Evan Dunham defeat Ross Pearson by decision. Most thought this would be a striking battle but instead Dunham chose to wrestle and his grappling was effective as he easily won all three rounds without much trouble. The prop bet on Dunham winning on the cards hit at +375. Joanne Calderwood vs. Cortney Casey wins “Fight of the Night” (+800) The most exciting fight of the entire card was the women’s strawweight bout between Joanne Calderwood and Cortney Casey, which earned both ladies a $50,000 bonus for “Fight of the Night.” The fight started off with Casey landing some hard blows on Calderwood’s chin, but the Scot was able to withstand it, survive, and eventually turn the tables on Casey as she outstruck and outgrappled her the last two rounds for the win. It was an exciting bout and deserving of the FOTN distinction. If you bet on this fight winning FOTN, you would have walked away with a +800 prop. Robert Whiteford wins by T/KO (+480)/Whiteford wins in round 1 (+500) One of the most surprising fights on the entire card was Robert Whiteford taking on Paul Redmond. Given both fighters’ styles, most figured the fight was going to be a three-round grindfest, but instead it was a striking battle, with Whiteford finding Redmond’s chin in the first and brutally finishing him with strikes. The prop on Whiteford by T/KO cashed at +480 and the prop on Whiteford wins in round 1 hit at +500. Jimmie Rivera wins by T/KO (+400)/Rivera wins in round 1 (+475) With all of Marcus Brimage’s chin issues it was surprising that Jimmie Rivera by T/KO was available at +400, but if you were lucky enough to spot it and bet it you cashed handsomely, and quickly, as Rivera won the fight early in the first round with punches in what turned out to be a mismatch. The prop on him winning in the opening stanza also cashed at +475, so if you were all over Rivera in this fight you cleaned up.
