devin-clark-rfa-29UFC Fight Night 91: McDonald vs Lineker Date: July 13, 2016 Arena: Denny Sanford Premier Center City: Sioux Falls, SD The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is set to make it’s inaugral trip to Sioux Falls, SD for UFC Fight Night 91: McDonald vs Lineker. This will be first official fight card under the new UFC regime. The 12-fight card is set to get going with preliminary action on UFC Fight Pass at 5:30pm ET and continuing on FOX Sports 1 at 7pm ET. Main card action will be underway at 9pm ET, also on FOX Sports 1.If interested in wagering on this parlay, or any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines are currently made available at 5Dimes Sportsbooks. Here is my parlay: Flyweight bout: Matthew Lopez (-115) vs Rani Yahya (-105) Gabe’s Thoughts: Lopez is an undefeated prospect making his promotional debut in this contest coming off Dana White’s Looking for a Fight reality series on UFC Fight Pass. He will be taking on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Rani Yahya in this contest, which will undoubtedly be the stiffest test of his professional mixed martial arts career. That said, I believe it is one he could pass with flying colors. Yahya is coming off a controversial split decision win over Masanori Kanehara, which was over a year ago. Some cage rust could play a concern with Yahya, just as Octagon jitters could factor with Lopez. Even in his UFC debut, I think Lopez should be a 2-to-1 betting favorite heading into this bout, so I like him at his current near coin-flip offering price of -115. I believe he is the superior mixed martial artist heading into the contest, and as long he avoids being submitted, which I believe he will, then he should come out on top, winning either via decision or T/KO, and I do favor the knockout finish. Gabe’s Call: Lopez by T/KO (punches, 2:22 round 1) Middleweight bout: Alex Nicholson (+190) vs Devin Clark (-230) Gabe’s Thoughts: Clark, much like Lopez, will be making his UFC debut with this match-up and is coming off Dana White’s Looking for a Fight reality series on UFC Fight Pass. He will also be dropping down from light heavyweight to the middleweight division for this bout. I believe Clark is the superior mixed martial artist and athlete of the two heading into this 185-pound contest, and simply put, as long as he avoids getting caught with a wild shot early, I think he walks away with this one. I think he should be favored at 3-to-1 heading into this contest, so I like him at his current offering price of -230. Gabe’s Call: Clark by T/KO (knees and punches, 3:59 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Matthews (-115) and Clark (-230) at +165 for 2.5u to win 4.2u
