UFC Fight Night 146 goes down on Saturday night in Wichita, Kansas.

The main event features a heavyweight fight between Junior dos Santos and Derrick Lewis. The fight could have title implications on the line. As well, the card also features several other solid matchups, and like any other card, features a wide array of props to bet on.

Here are three prop bets I’m most confident in.

1) Junior dos Santos Beats Derrick Lewis

Method of Victory for Junior dos Santos vs Derrick Lewis Odds
KO/TKO/Submission/DQ +100
Decision +330

dos Santos is the former UFC heavyweight champion and has shown he has the cardio to go all five rounds. Lewis, meanwhile, has looked gassed multiple times in fights but can always land that knockout punch. However, I think dos Santos weathers the storm and gets a fourth-round finish.

Pick: dos Santos Wins By KO/TKO/Submission/DQ (+100)

2) Ivanov vs Rothwell Goes the Distance

Does Ivanov vs Rothwell Go the Distance? Odds
Yes +125
No -175

A common thought in heavyweight MMA is that the fight will end by stoppage the majority of the time. And that may be the case but in this fight, I see Ivanov vs Rothwell going the distance. Rothwell is returning after nearly three years and Ivanov has been out for almost a year. Ring rust may be a factor as neither will be able to get the finishing blow and the fight goes to the scorecards.

Pick: Fight Goes the Distance (+125)

3) Reneau vs Kunitskaya Ends Early

Does Reneau vs Kunitskaya Go the Distance? Odds
Yes -250
No +175

The matchmaking for the Wichita card was phenomenal. All the fights are even and could go either way except for this one. Kunitskaya fought for a title against Cris Cyborg not too long ago and is coming off of a very good decision win over Lina Landsberg.

Reneau, meanwhile, lost a decisive decision loss to Cat Zingano last summer and is returning against a legitimate knockout artist in Kunitskaya. I see Kunitskaya getting a TKO win in this one.

Pick: Fight Doesn’t Go the Distance (+175)

Bonus longshot pick: Derrick Lewis by decision (+1000)

Most people think if Lewis is going to win, it will be by knockout, but he has a decision win over Francis Ngannou which was a boring fight. He could do that again here and score a decision win.
