More UFC betting value may be found in the 29 prop bet options currently available at 5Dimes. Rua by KO/TKO at UFC odds of +300 and Sonnen by decision at +116 offer a bit more value, depending on who you like, as the two most likely winning scenarios for each fighter.

The co-main event will be a Heavyweight contender match featuring former K-1 and Strikeforce World Champion Alistair Overeem. He will be looking to bounce back from a surprising upset at the hands of Antonio Silva. Overeem faces up-and-comer Travis Browne in a fight that is very unlikely to go the distance.

If you like the -175 option on Overeem to win at 5Dimes you’ll like the -140 prop option on him to win inside the distance. Browne is most likely to win the same way and current pays UFC odds of +155 for the win and +220 to win inside the distance.

Urijah Faber will also make an appearance on the Fox Sports 1 fight card when he steps into the Octagon against Yuri Alcantara. Faber is the MMA odds -280 favorite while the more tempting option is on the Alcantara +195 upset at Bovada.
