UFC Fight Night 54 is a really bad event for betting, but after 2 full days of research I’ve identified 3 solid betting tips that I’m confident will return a profit.
The main reason why UFC Fight Night 54 is so bad for betting, is because it consists mainly of fights which have really big underdogs and really big favourites. Normally this isn’t a problem, except the majority of favourites on this card are really inconsistent fighters and the underdogs have huge holes in their game which could easily be exposed by their opponents.
Despite the difficulty in betting on this card, I’ve still managed to identify 3 excellent betting tips that I am very confident will return us a profit. One of the tips can be viewed for free below and the other 2 are only available to our Premium Members.

2 FIGHT ACCUMULATOR PARLAY – RORY MACDONALD vs TAREC SAFFIEDINE + JAKE LINDSEY vs OLIVIER AUBIN-MERCIER
Rory MacDonald and Olivier Aubin-Mercier have such huge advantages in their fights that I can’t see anyway that they are going to lose.
I very rarely recommend betting parlay accumulators, but when I do, you can be sure that I believe the fighters included in the betting tip have almost no chance of losing.
Rory MacDonald is a nightmare match up for Tarec Saffiedine because he is is more well rounded, more athletic and has more ways to win this fight.
Saffiedine could be considered the better striker, but he’s going to find it hard to get inside Rory’s 6 inch reach advantage, which is a huge reach advantage for a Welterweight.
Rory also has more ways to win this fight because he’s great at securing takedowns and he’s got really good top control and submissions.
Tarec Saffiedine likes to throw leg kicks and body kicks and Rory MacDonald does an excellent job of catching kicks and turning them into takedowns.
The biggest safety net that we have in betting on Rory MacDonald to win, is the fact that Tarec Saffiedine is not a finisher. He hasn’t won a fight inside the distance since he beat Nate Moore back in 2010 and the chances of Saffiedine outworking MacDonald and winning a decision in Canada is almost unthinkable.
Home advantage is a huge factor in MMA and there’s no way MacDonald is going to under perform or lose a close decision on Canadian soil.
The second part of this parlay accumulator is Olivier Aubin-Mercier to beat Jake Lindsey.
Aubin-Mercier has been branded the next GSP and whilst I’m not completely sold on him, you cannot deny that the Canadian has excellent grappling, powerful takedowns and dangerous submissions. If you watched the Ultimate Fighter – Australia vs Canada you will know that Olivier is an absolute beast on the ground. This is a problem for Lindsey, because Lindsey has very poor takedown defence and a very weak ground game.
Aubin-Mercier should be able to take Lindsey down and beat him up with ground and pound or easily transition to submissions.
Aside from something crazy happening, I give Jake Lindsey almost no chance of winning this fight.
If you combine Rory MacDonald and Olivier Aubin-Mercier to win you can get pretty good odds of around 1.58 | -172 | 29/50. Make sure you bet this parlay accumulator at a Sportsbook with really good odds, because I’ve noticed some online betting websites have very poor odds on this accumulator. I personally recommend placing your bets at [adrotate group=”95″], because I know that they currently have the best odds available on this parlay accumulator.
