There are a number of props available for UFC 179, and I’ve scoured through all of the available lines at 5Dimes Sportsbook and have selected five which I think are worth considering for a bet. They are: Fabio Maldonado vs. Hans Stringer goes three-round distance (-175) One of the fights that I am looking forward to at UFC 179 is a three-round light heavyweight match between Fabio Maldonado and Hans Stringer. Both of these fighters are very hard to finish, and both of them tend to favor a drag ’em out fight that is played out along the fence. Maldonado’s chin is fading and it’s possible he could get caught, but I doubt it. I think this fight goes three rounds and at -185 I see value in the prop on that happening. Lucas Martins wins by T/KO (+361) One very intriguing main card bout is a featherweight matchup between Lucas Martins and Darren Elkins. Most are expecting Elkins to grind out a decision, and I understand, but I actually think Martins has a good chance of pulling off the upset, and I think he can do it by knockout. At +361, I believe there is value in the Martins wins by T/O prop. Beneil Dariush vs. Carlos Diego Ferreira doesn’t go three-round distance (-115) The opening main card bout at UFC 179 is a three-round lightweight bout between Beneil Dariush and Carlos Diego Ferreira. This is a very good fight between two guys with a lot of potential, and I think there is going to be a finish somewhere in the 15 minutes of allotted time. At a Pick ’em price of -115, there is definitely value in the prop on Dairush vs. Ferreira doesn’t go three rounds. Christos Giagos vs. Gilbert Burns doesn’t go three-round distance (-180) In a lightweight matchup, UFC newcomer Christos Giagos takes on Gilbert Burns, who is dropping down to 155lbs for the first time. Both of these fighters are finishers and I would be pretty surprised if this fight makes it the full 15 minutes. At -180, there looks to be decent value in the prop on this fight not going the full three rounds. Fabricio Camoes vs. Tony Martin doesn’t go three-round distance (-160) And finally, in the opening Fight Pass bout, Fabricio Camoes takes on Tony Martin in a three-round lightweight fight. Well, actually let me correct myself — it was supposed to be lightweight fight, but it was changed to a catchweight bout after both men missed weight. Both guys already have been finished before, and both guys have finishing power, and when you combine that with that fact neither made weight, and I really don’t see this fight going three rounds. At -160, I see value in the prop on this bout not making it the full 15 minutes.
