Here is my parlay: Women’s Strawweight bout: Carla Esparza (-300) vs. Randa Markos (+250) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think this fight will be close on the feet, and Markos is a very good wrestler, but I give Esparza the edge in the grappling department. I see her finding success on the mat in this contest. I think she uses her hands to set up takedowns, and I think she scores them at will. I see Esparza continuously putting Markos on her back in this contest en route to a unanimous-decision victory on the judges’ scorecards, though a finish would not surprise me either. Gabe’s Call: Esparza by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Middleweight bout: Gerald Meerschaert (-335) vs. Ryan Janes (+275) Gabe’s Thoughts: Both 185-pounders are 1-0 inside the Octagon and will be looking to keep their perfect UFC records intact in this contest. They are both solid grapplers, but Meerschaerst should have the edge on the feet, where I think he will expose Janes. I see him dropping Janes and either finishing him with ground-and-pound or a choke, ultimately handing the Canadian the first defeat of his pro MMA career. I expect this to be a fun fight to kick off the night of fights in Halifax, and I think it ends with Meerchaert’s hand raised in victory. Gabe’s Call: Meerschaert by T/KO (punches, 2:32 round 2) Gabe’s Recommeded Parlay: Esparza (-300) and Meerschaert (-335) at -137 All of my content and plays are free.
