Two-Way Parlay for UFC 202

MMA: UFC on FOX 8-Castillo-MeansUFC 203 Date: August 23, 2016 Arena: T-Mobile Arena City: Las Vegas, NV The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back in the fight capital of the world, Las Vegas, NV on August 20, 2016 with UFC 202: Diaz vs McGregor II. Main card action will be kicking off on Pay Per View at 10pm ET, with preliminary bouts preceding it on FOX Sports 1 at 8pm ET and on UFC Fight Pass at 6:30pm ET. 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: Welterweight bout: Tim Means (-420) vs Sabah Homasi (+335) Gabe’s Thoughts: Homasi is taking this bout on short notice, replacing an injured Sean Strickland. He last saw action less than a week ago, where he scored a second round knockout of veteran Jorge Patino at Titan FC 40. I expect this to be a fun fight in the UFC’s welterweight division, though I do think it is Means’ fight to lose. Coming off a half-year layoff due to suspension for drugs that ultimately ended up being tainted, Means is eager to get back in the Octagon and get his hand raised. I see him getting the better of Homasi for the majority of three rounds in this contest to pick up a unanimous decision victory on the judges’ scorecards, potentially stopping him along the way. Gabe’s Call: Means by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Bantamweight bout: Cody Garbrandt (-500) vs Takeya Mizugaki (+400) Gabe’s Thoughts: Mizugaki, who is used to competing several times a year, is coming off a rare extended layoff. I think this could either be a good thing for him or a bad thing, but It only means whether he will be competitive or if Garbrandt will completely run away with him, potentially making quick work of him. I think Garbrandt can find success in keeping this fight standing and outboxing Mizugaki for the majority of 15 minutes to earn the unanimous nod from the judges’ at Octagon-side and I think he also has a good chance of picking up a finish along the way. Gabe’s Call: Garbrandt by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Means (-420) and Garbrandt (-500) at -206 for 2.9u to win 1.4u
