Most of the fights at UFC 172 aren’t worth betting on, due to the amount of heavy favourites and inexperienced fighters competing on this event. As a result we’ve only got two betting tips for UFC 172 and one of those bets consists of a 3 fight parlay accumulator.
We didn’t manage to find that many good bets for UFC 172, but if you believe you’ve made some great bets, why not sign up to our MMA Betting Forum and let us know…
JON JONES vs GLOVER TEIXEIRA
Glover Teixeira got rocked by Ryan Bader in his last fight. There’s no way he can survive 5 rounds against Jon Jones. Make some easy money by betting on this fight not to go the distance…

3 FIGHT PARLAY ACCUMULATOR
I don't normally place parlay accumulators because it introduces more risk into a bet, but I really cannot see a way that the three fighters in this parlay can lose.
The first part of this parlay is Jon Jones to beat Glover Teixeira.
If you watch any of the promotional videos for UFC 172, you could be forgiven for thinking that Glover has a chance in this fight. In reality, he doesn't.
Jon Jones has fought devastating knock out artists like Lyoto Machida, Rampage Jackson, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, Vitor Belfort, Alexander Gustafsson and Rashad Evans. None of those guys even came close to finishing Jones with strikes and I seriously doubt Glover Teixeira will be the first to finish the reigning Champion.
The second part of this 3 fight parlay is Luke Rockhold to beat Tim Boetsch.
Luke Rockhold is the biggest favourite on this card which tells you all you need to know about Tim Boetsch's chances of winning this fight.
Luke Rockhold's takedown defence is impeccable and his striking is fast, powerful and accurate. Beating Luke Rockhold is an impossible task for Tim Boetsch…
The final part of this 3 fight parlay bet is Phil Davis to beat Anthony Johnson.
This is a really strange fight, because the UFC brought Anthony Johnson back into the company due to his impressive performances in the World Series of Fighting. They then decide to give him Phil Davis as his first fight, which is quite possibly the worst match up for him in the UFC's Light Heavyweight division.
Anthony Johnson is a great fighter with devastating knock out power, but takedown defence has never been his strong point.
Phil Davis should easily be able to take Johnson down and grind out a comfortable decision win.
OUR BET: 10.00 Units Jon Jones, Luke Rockhold and Phil Davis to win at odds of 2.00 | +100 | 1/1
