UFC Fight Night: Alexander Volkov vs Jairzinho Rozenstruik features excellent fights and we include four of the best in our UFC parlay.
The sportsbook offers bettors value throughout the night and our parlay kicks off with a prelim fight between Johnny Munoz and Tony Gravely.
It also features Alonzo Menifield vs Askar Mozharov and the main event.
Munoz vs Gravely
Gravely is a quality professional fighter and he is narrowly favored to beat Munoz on the undercard.
The 30-year-old scored a decision win over Saimon Oliveira at UFC 270 and having that experience gives him an edge over Munoz, who has had just one fight in the UFC organization.
Munoz is 11-1, so his record has to be respected. However, Gravely is the more polished fighter and the bantamweight could rise the ranks with a victory.
UFC odds have Gravley as the -140 favorite and we don’t see those odds drifting. Most of the money should come for Gravley, who could notch his 23rd career win.
Pick: Gravely -140
Menifield vs Mozharov
Betting markets had to adjust when news broke about Askar Mozharov’s fraudulent MMA record.
The Ukrainian light heavyweight posted a 25-7 record, but when a deep dive was undertaken, many of his losses weren’t recorded and he had fake wins posted.
It’s an embarrassing look, especially for someone signed with the UFC, but he played it off.
“I spent so much time since the age of 18 fighting professional fights and pretty much fighting everyone that I could,” Mozharov told MMA Mania. I don’t build my record or whatever, but a lot of the fights I had were in China. Those organizations don’t add fights after.
“Now that I get up to the biggest promotion, to the UFC, I guess someone or one of the admins wanted to show themself. It’s a little bit weird, right?”
We’re inclined to not believe Mozharov, who is now the +200 betting online underdog against Menifield, who packs power.
Menifield is a legitimate 11-3 after scoring two wins from three fights in 2021, so he’s a quality fighter and we don’t think he’ll have much of a problem winning at -250, so include him in parlays.
Pick: Menifield -250

Ige vs Evloev
Movsar Evloev has yet to lose inside the UFC Octagon, and we don’t expect that to change against Dan Ige.
The 28-year-old won a decision over Hakeem Dawodu last time out in the Octagon, and despite all of his UFC victories being by decision, he’s extremely difficult to beat.
He was the former M-1 Global bantamweight champion, so he has pedigree and would not be out of place fighting for the championship belt in this organisation, so if he wants that title shot, he’ll need to beat guys like Ige.
Ige is no slouch after fighting some big names but the 15-5 fighter is facing another quality opponent. The 30-year-old is also giving away size in the reach department, which is never ideal.
Evloev is one of the shortest favorites of the night and he can boost UFC parlay payouts.
Pick: Evloev -400
Volkov vs Rozenstruik
Volkov is a war horse with a 34-10 record as he looks to bounce back after losing to Tom Aspinall by first round submission.
The proud Russian wouldn’t have enjoyed losing so easily to a 12-2 fighter and that could be bad news for ozenstruik, who was beaten by Curtis Blaydes in his most recent UFC outing.
Bookmakers are siding with Volkov at -150 but there isn’t much between them. We don’t expect the fight to go the distance, so look for Volkov to land the big blow and end the fight before the fifth round.
We’re happy to include the -150 in parlays, but if bettors want better value, include Volkov by knockout at +240 for juicier odds.

Pick: Volkov -150
