The last major UFC card of 2020 is right around the corner on Saturday, Dec. 12. Let’s take a look at a few betting props that will make you the biggest winner at UFC 256!

Cub Swanson moneyline

Cub Swanson

O 2.5

Daniel Pineda

Moneyline

-170

U 2.5

While Cub hasn’t been in the octagon for over a year and has a lot of miles on his odometer, he’s still dangerous for an opponent like Daniel Pineda. Pineda doesn’t have the tools to overwhelm Swanson, and it just seems oddsmakers are overly concerned about the knee injury Swanson sustained over 14 months ago. Swanson should have enough in the tank to pull off the upset.

Ciryl Gane to win by KO/TKO/Disqualification (-135)

Sun, December 13 2020, 3:00 AM

Junior Dos Santos

Moneyline

+325

Total

O 1.5

Ciryl Gane

Moneyline

-450

Total

U 1.5

Gane is a surging heavyweight taking a decent step up in class against the aging Junior Dos Santos, but he’s a prohibitive favorite to take down the old champ. Dos Santos has lost his last three fights by stoppage and enough has already been said about his age and mileage.

The surging Gane is going to get him out of there and set himself up for something bigger down the line. Bet on the stoppage for a decent value pick.

Kevin Holland to win by KO/TKO/Disqualification (+500)

Sun, December 13 2020, 3:30 AM

Ronaldo Souza

Moneyline

-125

Total

O 2.5

Kevin Holland

Moneyline

+105

Total

U 2.5

Nobody is having a better year than Holland, and he looks to earn his fifth win of the year at the expense of the faded former champion. Ronaldo Souza looks to try and take advantage of Holland’s perceived weakness against grapplers, but his dulled reflexes and speed will play right into Holland’s heavy hands. Holland will look explosive, and backing a KO gets a huge +500 score.

Tony Ferguson to win by points (+300)

Sun, December 13 2020, 4:30 AM

Charles Oliveira

Moneyline

+145

Total

O 2.5

Tony Ferguson

Moneyline

-180

Total

U 2.5

In our preview of the co-main, we figured that Ferguson would bounce back and prove too tough for the surging Charles Oliveira. While this could get chippy, Ferguson’s superior striking and toughness should get him through the rough parts of the fight before he slowly starts taking Oliveira apart.

A cautious start from both fighters will eventually pick up, and that’s where we’ll see the divide in talent between them. Backing Ferguson to win by points is a good call.

Deiveson Figueiredo to win by KO/TKO/Disqualification (+130)

Sun, December 13 2020, 5:00 AM

Brandon Moreno

Moneyline

+265

Total

O 2.5

Deiveson Figueiredo

Moneyline

-345

Total

U 2.5

There’s really no way the main event will end aside from Figueiredo towering over the slumped body that was once Brandon Moreno. The +130 is a steal here, especially as Moreno has to get in Figueiredo’s line of fire to hope he can take him down or bait him into a counter.

While Figueiredo is just as likely to win by submission, Moreno will get careless and succumb to Figueiredo’s strikes within the scheduled five rounds.
