UFC Fight Night: San Diego Parlay
We have no reservations as fight fans: The UFC can feature some downright ugly fights. UFC Fight Night: San Diego has a slew of matchups that can lead to early bloodshed or a drawn-out scrap that leaves everyone sweaty. Either way, we can parlay two to four of these fights to secure solid UFC betting odds.
Quinlan Blasts Through Witt
We’ve remarked in more than two articles that Josh Quinlan (5-0-0) is a juicer. He’s coming off a USADA suspension and had this fight postponed because there were still steroid metabolites in his system. The UFC clearly loves him as he looks good, hits hard, and has star quality. Jason Witt (19-8-0) is the proverbial lamb being led to slaughter.
We’re not underestimating Witt. He’s a scrappy wrestler who can outwork Quinlan if he somehow survives him. But he won’t. Quinlan is much bigger and, if he’s on the sauce, he’ll be more explosive. As the UFC gambling odds indicate, Quinlan should dust Witt within two rounds.
Vera Chops Cruz Down
Marlon Vera (21-7-1) is a fighter. Dominick Cruz is a martial artist (24-3-0). When push comes to shove, we’d side with the former. In this five-round fight, we already picked Vera to take out Cruz because he hits harder and fights more savagely. Just ask Sean O’Malley what happened.
Cruz may frustrate Vera and outstrike him, statistically. But Vera will be the one landing the harder shots. It might look similar to Vera’s last fight against Rob Font. Vera will whittle away at Cruz and drop him several times throughout the fight. A late finish is even plausible despite Cruz only being finished once in the UFC.
Parlay: Josh Quinlan and Marlon Vera at -110

Add: Nunes, Calvillo Go the Distance
Nina Nunes (10-7-0) and Cynthia Calvillo (9-4-1) are this close to being on the chopping block. Both were promising contenders at some point but have dropped consecutive fights, albeit against title contenders. So we expect the two to fight with more desperation in this one. However, neither has that much finishing power.
Nunes should outstrike Calvillo on the feet. Calvillo, on the other hand, can drag Nunes to the ground and beat up on her. We like Calvillo’s odds here but can’t commit after the beating she’s taken in her past two fights. Instead, bet online on this one to go over its 2½ totals. If there will be a finish, it’ll occur late.
Parlay: Josh Quinlan, Nunes-Calvillo Over 2½ and Marlon Vera at +169
Add: Landwehr Survives Onama
Speaking of finishes, we would be shocked if David Onama (10-1-0) and Nate Landwehr (15-4-0) make it to the final bell. Both are finishers with Onama having finished all of his victories. He has one-punch knockout power and a three-inch reach advantage. Landwehr starts slow and could eat a big shot and go down.
On the flip side, Onama can get grinded down by Landwehr. “Nate the Train” may have suffered two first-round KO losses in the UFC but has since adjusted. He may get hurt by Onama early, but he’ll find a way to neutralize the Ugandan and make it past the halfway mark of the fight. A late Landwehr submission could also be the best bet on the UFC Fight card.
Parlay: Josh Quinlan, Nunes-Calvillo Over 2½, Onama-Landwehr Over 1½ and Marlon Vera +354
