The prop on Oliynyk wins in round 1 cashed at +600, and the prop on him winning by TKO cashed at +975. Roger Narvaez by decision (+515) In a middleweight matchup, Roger Narvaez surprised many when he did enough to take home a split decision over heavy favorite Luke Barnatt. The first two rounds of this fight consisted of both fighters just looking at each other and not throwing, but in the third Narvaez knocked Barnatt down and nearly finished him. The damage done in round three was enough to get Narvaez the decision nod and those who bet on him winning by decision were rewarded with a +515 prop. Akbarh Arreola wins by submission (+610)/Arreola wins in round 1 (+825) In a lightweight tilt, Akbarh Arreola ended Yves Edwards’ career with a first-round submission victory over the veteran. Arreola knocked Edwards down to the canvas and quickly transitioned to mount, then to an armbar to get the tapout. The prop on Arreola by submission surprisingly cashed at +610, as did the prop on Arreola wins in round 1 at +825. Paige VanZant by TKO (+814)/VanZant wins in round 3 (+1800)/VanZant wins FOTN (+1300) In a women’s strawweight fight, Paige VanZant had UFC debut to remember with a third-round TKO finish over Kailin Curran.

The prop on VanZant by TKO hit at +814 and the prop on her winning in round 3 hit at +1800. As well, the prop on the fight winning FOTN cashed at +1300.
