Derek BrunsonUFC Fight Night 94: Johnson vs Poirier Date: September 17, 2016 Arena: State Farm Arena City: Hidalgo, TX The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be in Hidalgo, TX for the first time in promotional history with UFC Fight Night 94: Johnson vs Poirier. The 12-fight card is set to kick off at 7 p.m. ET on UFC Fight Pass, and preliminary action will follow at 8 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1, culminating with a six-fight main card on the same channel. If interested in wagering on this parlay, or any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines are currently made available at Several Bookmakers. Here is my parlay: Middleweight bout: Derek Brunson (-185) vs Urijah Hall (+160) Gabe’s Thoughts: I believe as long as Brunson avoids getting caught, this is his fight to lose. I would not be surprised to see him knock Hall out on the feet, but I think he will use his wrestling to win this fight. I think he takes Brunson down and keeps him there for the majority of the bout, potentially earning a ground and pound TKO stoppage along the way. Hall is coming off an extended layoff ,and ring rust could be playing a factor with the TUF 18 veteran. Gabe’s Call: Brunson by T/KO (punches, 3:04 round 1) Lightweight bout: Evan Dunham (-290) vs Rick Glenn (+245) Gabe’s Thoughts: Former WSOF featherweight champion Glenn is stepping up to the lightweight division to make his short notice UFC debut for an injured Abel Trujillo, who was originally scheduled to take on Dunham. Training out of Roufusport, Glenn is a well-rounded mixed martial artist who will have a height and reach advatage heading into this 155-pound contest. Xtreme Couture’s Dunham will have advantages in wrestling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu heading into this bout and I see him using Glenn’s long legs to take him down, and from there work his ground-and-pound and look to transition into a submission. I can see him ending this fight via T/KO or submission and think it is 50/50 as to whether he does get the finish or wins it on the judges’ scorecards following 15 minutes of action. Though he will be at a reach advantage on the feet, I think he has an advantage in boxing and could also see him closing the distance and beating Glenn up from inside the pocket. As long as he doesn’t get caught, I think this is Dunham’s fight to lose and I see him pulling out the win on Saturday night, ultimately sending Glenn back down to 145 pounds for his second appearance inside the Octagon. Gabe’s Call: Dunham by Submission (rear naked choke, 4:01 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Brunson (-185) and Dunham (-290) at +107 for 3.55u to win 3.8u
