The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Las Vegas for an eventful night of mixed martial arts combat. The fight odds are now available for us to delve into some perfect parlay betting picks for UFC in Vegas 26 – headlined by contenders Dominick Reyes and Jiri Prochazka competing for UFC light heavyweight rankings live on ESPN.

Geoff Neal vs. Neil Magny

UFC Welterweight Bout

Saturday, May 8, 2021 at Apex Centre

The Fighters

Neil Magny is undoubtedly a true gatekeeper of the UFC welterweight division and one of the most underrated fighters on the roster. His size and length in the welterweight division have been a problem for many, including Robbie Lawler, Anthony Martin, Jingliang Li, and Carlos Condit.

Former football standout in school, Geoff Neal has always been the athletic kind. Converting those skills into martial arts has been a severe problem for his opponents. Still, to this day, Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson has been the only fighter to test Neal’s skillset truly. Explosive power, great wrestling offence and the will to finish the man in front of him put him amongst the welterweight divisions finest.

The Perfect Parlay Pick

I expect Neil Magny to enter this contest with a strict game plan, and I can only assume the blueprint he believes in will entail a grappling backbone. The Problem here is Neal’s strength and ability to wrestle quite well himself.

Neal loves to utilise his striking offence, and you can’t blame him with three knockouts during his UFC tenure thus far. He’s fought some of the meanest fighters and remained a monster to overcome in the octagon.

The available UFC odds with Bookmakers Review favour Neal, and I’m not surprised one bit. He makes the perfect parlay addition for bettors like myself who discourage paying high juice for singular fights.

Perfect Parlay Prediction: Geoff Neal to win at -189 with BetOnline

Christian Aguilera vs. Carlston Harris

UFC Welterweight Bout

Saturday, May 8, 2021 – 11:35 PM ET at Apex Centre

The Fighters

Carlston Harris is making his UFC debut during the prime of his career; aged 33, some may be hesitant on being reliant for him to claim victory. However, making his debut against a low-level opponent could be the perfect beginning to his UFC tenure.

There is no denying, Christian Aguilera has been known to throw hands. The power behind his fundamental striking techniques has been evident. The Problem I have with Aguilera would be his inability to defend himself against dangerous grapplers, precisely what Harris is.

Perfect Parlay Prediction

Last time out, Aguilera was completely out grappled by Sean Brady, and we should not read into this too much. Brady is exceptionally skilled on the wrestling mats.

Harris can certainly imitate the game plan of Brady and potentially do it to a higher level. Aguilera does pose a striking threat, but I cannot envision the experienced Harris falling victim to a brutal knockout.

Perfect Parlay Prediction: Carlston Harris to win at -152 with BetOnline
