Here is my parlay: Middleweight bout: Gegard Mousasi (-550) vs Uriah Hall (+425) Gabe’s Thoughts: I predicted that is this bout ever took place that Mousasi would be a bigger favorite than he was in the first fight, despite the fact that he was TKO’d in the second round of their contest. Does Hall have Mousasi’s number? I highly doubt it and my money is against it. The first round of their bout proved that Mousasi is on another level. He got caught in the second round but I believe he is still better than Hall on the feet. Hall is an excellent striker but I think Mousasi has a better chance of finishing Hall than Hall does Mousasi, should the fight stay standing. I have a feeling Mousasi may opt to keep this standing and knock Hall out. If not, I think he’ll dominate the grappling and eventually find a submission to wrap up the show. Gabe’s Call: Mousasi by T/KO (punches, 2:13 round 1) Flyweight bout: Ian McCall (-335) vs Neil Seery (+275) Gabe’s Thoughts: I believe McCall is the superior striker heading into this 125-pound contest and I see the fight playing out on the feet, where he outstrikes Neery for a unanimous decision victory on the judges’ scorecards. “Uncle Creepy” is also the superior grappler heading into this bout and I could see him dominating Seery on the mat, should he opt to take a fight there. That might be the wiser choice, as I think he would have a better chance of finishing the fight on the mat than on the feet. He could potentially get in position to earn a TKO stoppage or find Seery’s neck for a choke. Gabe’s Call: McCall by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Welterweight bout: Abdul Razak Alhassan (-350) vs Charlie Ward (+250) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think this is a mismatch and believe ARA is the superior fighter heading into this 170-pound contest. I see this being a one sided fight and think ARA is a justified -350 betting favorite heading into his UFC debut. Gabe’s Call: Alhassan by T/KO (strikes, 0:34 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Mousasi (-550), McCall (-335) and Alhassan (-350) at -103 for 3.09u to win 3u
