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 230 bets that cashed big based on the closing odds from across various sportsbooks.
1) Marcos Rogerio de Lima by Knockout (+1078)
The Brazilian has typically dominated in the first round or gotten tired and lost in the later rounds during his UFC career. In this bout, fans saw something different as he was able to control his opponent on the mat and cruise to a decision. A decision victory prop paid a whopping +1078.
2) Shane Burgos by Submission (+1050)
Shane Burgos earned his first submission victory in over four years and the first armbar tap of his career when he beautifully forced Kurt Holobaugh to submit paying submission backers +1050.
3) Jared Cannonier by Knockout (+590)
In his middleweight debut, Cannonier was given difficult opposition in ranked middleweight David Branch. Cannonier shined knocking out Branch in the second round and will likely join the middleweight rankings with the victory. Those brave enough to back the hefty underdog by knockout received a handsome payout of +590.
4) Ronaldo Souza by Knockout (+500)
In the fight of the night, Jacare turned the tables on Chris Weidman in the third round dropping him midway through the round and finishing on the mat for the biggest win of his career. Jacare by knockout paid out at +500.
5) Jordan Rinaldi by Decision (+425)
Jordan Rinaldi took advantage of an out of form Jason Knight taking him to the mat with ease in all three rounds to cruise to a decision victory. Rinaldi by decision paid out +425.
A $100 parlay on these five props would have netted $2,944,340.
