Five Props that Cashed Big at UFC Fight Night 116


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 Fight Night 116 prop bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at 5Dimes Sportsbook.

1) Gilbert Burns by T/KO (+850)

Burns scored arguably the most impressive win of his UFC career with a second round knockout of Canadian Jason Saggo and now he finds himself back in the win column at 155 pounds. Known for his grappling skills, Burns showed improved striking in this bout, getting the better of Saggo on the feet at times, who many including myself assumed would have the edge on the feet over the Brazilian. Burns ultimately found the knockout, which shows that his work with Henri Hooft has been paying off. I think congratulations are due to those of you who were bright enough to take a shot on this prop, as it was the biggest to cash in on the night at a massive +850.

2) Gregor Gillespie by Submission (+426)

Gillespie made it three straight victories for himself inside the Octagon with a second round arm triangle choke of Jason Gonzalez. Still undefeated and one of the brightest prospects at 155 pounds, fight fans look forward to seeing this Long Islander inside the Octagon. Congrats are due to those who were wise enough to take him to win this fight by submission, as the prop paid at at a hot +426.

3) Daniel Spitz by T/KO (+410)

Spitz bounced back from the first loss of his professional career to pick up his first UFC win in just 24 seconds against Anthony Hamilton, putting the veteran away via TKO. It was a solid outing by Spitz, who is an interesting addition to the UFC’s heavyweight division. Congratulations are certainly due to those who jumped on this prop at +410, because I for one missed and think it was a value play, as I believe a knockout was the only way Spitz could defeat Hamilton.

4) Uriah Hall by T/KO (+350)

Hall scored a come-from-behind knockout of Kryszstof Jotko to save his job and return to the win column following a three-fight losing skid. Everybody was counting him out after the first round, but he quickly shut viewers up in the second by adding yet another highlight to his extensive reel. Congrats to those who wagered on Hall winning this fight by T/KO, as they took home a +350 cash prize.

5) Olivier Aubin-Mercier by Decision (+250)

OAB made it four straight wins for himself inside the Octagon with a split decision over Tony Martin. It was a highly competitive matchup that saw both 155-pounders have their moments, but it was the French-Canadian who ultimately came out on top on the scorecards and allowed those who wagered on him do so to cash out at a solid +250.

A $100 parlay on these five props would have netted $401,284.
