Two-Way Parlay for UFC 198

Jacare SouzaUFC 198 Date: May 14, 2016 Arena: Arena da Baixada City: Curitiba, Parana, Brazil The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heads to Curitiba, Parana, Brazil this Saturday (May 14, 2016) with UFC 198: Werdum vs Miocic. The incredibly stacked 12-fight card kicks off on UFC Fight Pass at 6:15pm ET, with preliminary action continuing on FOX Sports 1 at 8pm ET, and the main card getting going at 10pm ET on Pay Per View. If interested in wagering on this parlay, or any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines are currently made available at Several Bookmakerss. Here is my parlay: Middleweight bout: Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (-320) vs Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort (+260) Gabe’s Thoughts: This is a rare “winner vs loser” match-up in the UFC’s 185-pound division, with Souza coming off a controversial split decision loss to Yoel Romero and Belfort coming off a knockout win over veteran Dan Henderson. This is a big fight for both middleweights, as a victory would put the victor right back in the mix of things, while the loser would be forced to take a long walk back to the drawing board; especially if that drawing board is in Boca Raton, FL, where Belfort currently resides and trains; meaning, though he is Brazilian, this will ultimately be a road game for him. To wrap it up in Layman’s terms, I think there is a big grappling advantage in this match-up for Jacare and I expect him to use it to defeat Belfort, either by submission or unanimous decision victory on the judges’ scorecards. Gabe’s Call: Jacare by Submission (guillotine choke, 2:!3 round 1) Featherweight bout: Renato Moicano (+145) vs Zubaira Tukhugov (-165) Gabe’s Thoughts: Putting it simply, I think Tukhugov is the superior striker and wrestler heading into this 145-pound contest and I like his chances of either knocking the Brazilian out or defeating him via unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards. This is an important fight for both featherweights, who look to remain undefeated inside the Octagon and gain relevancy in the division. Gabe’s Call: Tukhugov by T/KO (puches, 1:53 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Souza (-320) and Tukhugov (-165) at +111¬†for 2.5u to win 2.78u
