Five Props that Cashed Big at UFC 215
Five Props is a column featured on MMAOddsbreaker.com after every major MMA event that highlights the biggest underdog prop bets to cash out from that card. Here are five UFC 215 prop bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at 5Dimes Sportsbook.
1) Kajan Johnson by T/KO (+1300)
Johnson returned from an extended two-year layoff to take on Brazil’s Adriano Martins. It was a close and lackluster bout going into the third round, where Johnson connected with a punch that put Martins out cold and forced the referee to stop the bout. It was an impressive, highlight-reel finish by Johnson, and it made you forget about the previous two rounds. Big congratulations to anyone who was lucky enough to take a shot on this prop, as it was the biggest to cash in on the night at a massive +1300.
2) Rafael dos Anjos by Submission (+700)
Dos Anjos made it two straight wins for himself in the UFC’s welterweight division since moving up from 155 pounds, and he did so with a first round submission over the always game Neil Magny. It was an impressive outing by the former lightweight champ, who now aims to make a run for the 170 pound gold. Congratulations are in order to those who were wise enough to be on RDA by Submission, as the prop paid out at a beautiful +700.
3) Amanda Nunes by Decision (+588)
Nunes went the distance with Valentina Schevchenko and took home a controversial split decision victory in the process. It was a close fight and when it was all said and done, the champ defended her title and allowed those who wagered on her to do so on the judges’ scorecards to cash out at +588. Congrats to you if you were wise enough to take a shot on that one.
4) Rick Glenn by Decision (+576)
Glenn earned a dominant unanimous decision win over Canada’s own Gavin Tucker, handing him his first professional mixed martial arts defeat. It was an impressive outing by Glenn, who started training with Team Alpha Male for this contest. Congratulations are in order to those who took Glenn to upset Tucker with a decision win, as the prop paid out at a terrific +576.
5) Sarah Moras by Submission (+550)
Moras returned from an extended two-year layoff to defeat Ashlee Evans-Smith via armbar submission in the opening round of action. It was an impressive outing by the Canadian, who finds herself back in the win column with the highlight-reel finish. Congratulations to those of you who were smart enough to place a bet on this prop, as it paid out wonderfully at +550.
