Yadong Song vs Chris Gutierrez headlines our UFC parlays for Saturday’s UFC Fight Night card in Las Vegas.
The sportsbook has Song as the -360 favorite, and we also include two of the best fights on the undercard.
Yadong Back on Song
Song is one of our best UFC Fight Night bets Dec 9, and although he’s the short-priced favorite, he’s a great parlay inclusion.
The 26-year-old is 20-7-1 following a knockout win over Ricky Simon. It took him until the fifth round to secure the win, but it came in impressive style.
Gutierrez is a tough opponent at 20-5-2, but he has been fighting slightly easier opposition. He fought Alatengheili in October, who is a 16-9-2 fighter, so it’s not great form.
Hearing that he’s scared when he enters the Octagon isn’t ideal.
“Who says I’m not scared? Man, that’s the biggest bulls—t, people, maybe I can’t speak for everybody, but I’m scared s—tless,” Gutierrez said. “That’s just the reality, right? You are putting yourself in a very vulnerable position. You are going out there to fight half-naked in front of millions of people.”
Song could capitalize on those fears and justify his sport betting odds, so include him as the anchor in parlays.
UFC Pick: Yadong Song (-360)

Predictions for the fight? 🤔

Rountree Could Send Smith into Retirement
Khalil Rountree could send Anthony Smith into retirement.
The 13-5 fighter hasn’t been overly active, but he couldn’t have been more impressive when knocking out Chris Daukaus in August.
The power-punching 33-year-old is riding a four-fight winning streak, and although Smith is one of the all-time battlers, he could be past his best.
Smith is 37-18 following a gutsy win over Ryan Spann, but Smith has struggled with consistency over the last few years.
Betting online markets have Smith at +160 to cause an upset, but Rountree has heavy hands, and he could send Smith packing.
The -190 odds are a touch short for Rountree, but he’s a solid parlay inclusion, and we expect him to have his hand raised at the end of the fight.
UFC Pick: Khalil Rountree (-190)

Haqparast Gets Things Started
Nasrat Haqparast is 15-5 following a decision win over Landon Quinones, which was good enough to impress us.
He lost to Bobby Green last year before beating John Makdessi, and although his form is mixed, we think he’s good enough to beat Australian Jamie Mullarkey.
Mullarkey comes off a win against Makdessi, so they have similar form lines. However, he was rocked by Muhammad Naimov in June, and that’s a concerning performance.
One thing we like about Mullarkey is his willingness to put himself in the firing line, but Haqparast could take advantage and send him to the canvas.
We’re not surprised by the -180 odds for the favorite, and he could get the parlay off to a winning start. It could pay to take the odds before they firm on fight night.
UFC Pick: Nasrat Haqparast (-180)
Never count Mullarkey out! 😤
