One of two heavyweight bouts on the main card of UFC Fight Night 184, Josh Parisian hopes to secure his seventh straight knockout win when he takes on Parker Porter in his UFC debut.
Parisian (13-3) booked a second first-round knockout victory on Dana White’s Contender Series back in August, earning a UFC contract this time to get his chance on the big stage.
Porter (10-6) made his own promotional debut in a first-round knockout loss to Chris Daukaus, and it feels as though the 35-year-old may be used as a stepping stone for Parisian to reach greater heights.
Having lost more than half of his professional fights to date, Porter is a +190 moneyline underdog with Borgata NJ for good reason.
UFC 128 Odds & Prediction: Josh Parisian (-233) vs. Parker Porter (+190)
Parisian—whose last loss came back in February 2016—looks like decent value for a more substantial wager at -233 odds, while a parlay double combined with main-event favorite Curtis Blaydes (-358) yields almost double-your-money returns of -121.
Prediction: Parisian via KO/TKO
