UFC on ESPN 47 Props

Marvin Vettori vs. Jared Cannonier Prop Pick

Jared Cannonier has promised to finish Vettori, which he believes would get him another shot at the middleweight title. If he fulfills his promise, it’s going to be the first-ever loss inside the distance for Marvin Vettori.

However, we don’t think that’s going to happen. Sure, “The Killa Gorilla” is a great finisher with a knockout-to-win ratio of 62.5%. But this doesn’t worry “The Italian Dream” too much. After all, he’s already fought many knockout experts – Paulo Costa (78.57%), Israel Adesanya (66.66%), and others.

We don’t think Cannonier can finish Vettori, but what about the other way around? Although Vettori does have what it takes to finish his opponents, the 29-year-old has been a marathon fighter over the last couple of years. In fact, since joining the UFC in 2016, he’s fought 12 bouts and 10 of those lasted until the final bell.

Marvin Vettori vs. Jared Cannonier – Fight to go the distance

Arman Tsarukyan vs. Joaquim Silva Prop Pick

Arman Tsarukyan is a well-rounded fighter with a great fight IQ, who’s patient and composed in every fight. Joaquim Silva is just the opposite. This guy likes to take risks, which explains why each of his four previous UFC fights saw a KO/TKO finish – he did it to two opponents, while another two did that to him.

Tsarukyan is seen as a huge favorite in the June 17 co-main event, and it really isn’t a question of who’s gonna win the fight. Instead, it’s when the fight will end.

We think Tsarukyan is going to test the waters in Round 1 to see what the best way is to finish Silva (and not get finished while trying). It’s the second round in which we think he’s gonna go on the offensive. And when he goes all-in on Silva, that’s the end of the fight.

Arman Tsarukyan to win in Round 2

Armen Petrosyan vs. Christian Leroy Duncan Prop Pick

Christian Leroy Duncan is 8-0 in his professional career and seven of those were finishes. Six times he won by KO/TKO, which is what we suspect he might do on Saturday as well.

Still, knowing that Armen Petrosyan is a dangerous fella as well (with an 8-2 record and six wins by KO/TKO), our best prop bet for this fight won’t involve the winner. Instead, our prop pick is that Petrosyan vs. Duncan will not go the distance.

UFC Prop BetOdds
Petrosyan vs. Duncan to go the distance – No

Pat Sabatini vs. Lucas Almeida Prop Pick

Pat Sabatini is a collegiate wrestler-turned-expert grappler with a BJJ black belt. Knowing this, it’s almost certain that he’s gonna go for a takedown against Lucas Almeida on Saturday, trying to get a submission win.

Almeida’s never lost a fight by a finish, but that’s because he hasn’t fought an opponent as good as Sabatini. We think Sabatini will beat Almeida by submission, although a “ground-and-pound” win wouldn’t surprise us either.

UFC Prop BetOdds
Pat Sabatini to win by KO, TKO, DQ or submission

Manuel Torres vs. Nikolas Motta

Manuel Torres is 13-2 with each of his last six wins happening in the first round. He’ll try to prolong his run, thus risking getting put to sleep by Nikolas Motta.

We think both fighters have the ability to KO one another, which is why our prop pick for this fight is that it won’t last for too long.

UFC Prop BetOdds
Manuel Torres vs. Nikolas Motta to go the distance – No
