UFC 284 Parlay

Leg 1: Jamie Mullarkey via stoppage (+100)

Francisco Prado is an undefeated prospect who has finished every opponent in his young career, but he’ll be stepping into the cage with a fellow lightweight far more skilled than any other he has faced.

Jamie Mullarkey has been finished only once in his UFC career despite taking on several dangerous UFC veterans. He was dropped in Round 1 of his last fight but recovered quickly, and he landed 76 significant strikes in Rounds 2 and 3 combined.

Prado may provide an early onslaught to test Mullarkey, but once the veteran has cleared the first-round speed bump, I expect him to pour it on and get the finish.

Leg 2: Melsik Baghdasaryan by KO (+320)

Possibly the most intriguing fight of the preliminary card will feature a standup battle between the much improved Josh Culibao and rising prospect Melsik Baghdasaryan.

Baghdasaryan is a seasoned kickboxer boasting a significant strike accuracy rate of 62%. In this featherweight fight, Culibao will be in Baghdasaryan's world, as he’s never landed a takedown in his UFC career. Additionally, Culibao does his best work in boxing range, turning fights into brawls no matter the opponent.

Baghdasaryan will have ample counter-striking opportunities and should have a lot of success with his kicking attack. I love the value here on the fighter who will land the more damaging shots.

Leg 3: Jack Della Maddalena by KO (-115)

Jack Della Maddalena is simply a bad matchup for veteran welterweight Randy Brown.

Brown effectively uses his jab to keep opponents at a comfortable distance, but the issue with that gameplan here is Della Maddalena is more than willing to eat one shot in order to close the distance and land two power strikes of his own.

The Australian, fighting behind his home crowd, will move forward with his high guard and bring relentless pressure, eventually putting Brown in a position that causes him to absorb a few too many damaging strikes to force the stoppage victory.
