Five Props that Cashed Big at UFC 203

DoberFive Props is a column featured on after every major MMA event that highlights the biggest underdog prop bets to cash out from that card. Here’s five UFC 203 prop bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers. 1) Werdum by Decision (+260) Fabricio Werdum bounced back into the win column after losing the UFC heavyweight title and picked up a unanimous decision victory in a rematch against Travis “Hapa” Browne. It was a very strange fight from start to finish, and even pre-fight and post-fight. It may not have been enough to earn him a title shot, but when all was said and done, Werdum got the win, and those who wagered on him to do so saw their tickets cash at a solid +260. 2) Andrade by Submission (+411) Jessica Andrade continues to impress since dropping down to the UFC’s women’s strawweight division, where she is now 2-0 with a pair of finishes, including a second-round TKO of Jessica Penne and a first-round guillotine choke submission of Joanne Calderwood on the main card of UFC 203 this past Saturday night. Andrade has been dominant in this division and is very likely one more win away from earning a title shot. If you wagered on her to defeat Calderwood by submission, you cashed out at a very nice +411. 3) Lentz by T/KO (+334) Nik Lentz defeated short notice promotional newcomer Michael McBride via third round TKO and improved to 2-0 since moving back up to the UFC’s lightweight division after a good run at featherweight. “The Carney” was a massive betting favorite heading into this contest, but the prop on him to win by T/KO was at a nice +334, and if you were wise to that one. 4) Medeiros by Submission (+480) Yancy Medeiros made his welterweight debut in this contest and did so in impressive fashion, scoring a pair of highlight reel kicks that ultimately lead to a rear naked choke submission in the second stanza. It was a picture perfect way for the Hawaiian to make his 170-pound debut and simultaneously return to the win column. Those who wagered on him to win this bout by submission cashed out at a smokin’ +480. 5) Dober by T/KO (+535) Drew Dober defeated promotional newcomer Jason Gonzalez via first round knockout in arguably the most impressive performance of his professional mixed martial arts career. His boxing looked crisp, as he was able to land phenomenal combinations to stagger and render Gonzalez unconscious. If you were smart enough to have your money on Dober winning this fight by T/KO, congratulations to you for cashing out at a sweet +535. A $100 parlay on these five props would have netted $293,945.
