1) Julian Marquez by Submission (+950)
In the Fight of the Night, Julian Marquez toughed it out in a slugfest with Darren Stewart. Battered and bloodied Marquez took over the bout in the second round latching on a guillotine to earn the victory and giving his backers a huge victory with a +950 prop winner.
2) Josh Emmett by T/KO (+945)
In what was a stunning result, Josh Emmett not only beat long time featherweight contender Ricardo Lamas, but knocked him out via a highlight reel left hook. It would have been a sure fire bonus winner for Emmett had he made weight for this bout. Either way, Emmett by T/KO prop winners received a huge payout at +945.
3) Glover Teixeira by T/KO (+452)
In one of the more meaningful bouts of the evening, Glover Teixeira had his way with Misha Cirkunov on the ground eventually flattening him out and landing ground and pound to win by T/KO stoppage in the opening round. Teixeira finishing his opponent paid a handsome +452.
4) Nordine Taleb by T/KO (+447)
In a night with many highlight reel finishes, Nordine Taleb’s may have been the best of them all. He landed a beautiful head kick that sent Danny Roberts spiraling backwards. He then followed up with a punch against the cage that sent Roberts crumbling to the canvas. The performance of the night knockout paid out at +447.
5) Chad Laprise by T/KO (+424)
Chad Laprise backers breathed a sigh of relief when he was dropped and nearly finished by Galore Bofando early in the first round. Laprise was able to recover, securing a takedown, and beating Bofando up on the mat to earn a stoppage victory. The T/KO prop on Laprise paid out nicely at +424.
A $100 parlay on these five props would have netted a whopping $1,735,954.
