UFC 186 has taken some serious hits. When the original lineup for this event was first anounched fans were pretty excited; two title fights and the return of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson to the UFC; not too shabby at all. But injuries and legal issues have devastated this card, leaving many to question whether or not the UFC should lower the PPV price or even put it on free TV for the fans.

Talent wise UFC 186 is just fine but none of the fighters on the card – outside of Michael Bisping – are true draws. UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson is one of the pound-for-pound best fighters in the world today but he doesn’t resonate with the PPV buying fan base.

But even with all of that said on Saturday, April 25, 2015 UFC 186: Johnson vs. Horiguchi will go on at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. For the gamblers out there this card offers a few enticing bouts and several interesting prop bet plays.

Yves Jabouin (+350) vs. Thomas Almeida (-440)

Jabouin is an experienced veteran who has proven time and time again that he is a tough out. But this bout is all about showcasing Almeida. The 23-year-old is one of the best prospects in the sport today and he is a killer. 17 of his 18 career wins have come by finish and 13 of those has been by way of knockout.

The play –Take Almeida to win and at -165 take him to win inside the distance

John Makdessi, (-175) vs. Shane Campbell (+155)

This one should be a fun bout as Makdessi and Campbell are two very dynamic and effective strikers. The difference in this fight is going to be the fact that Makdessi has been out of action for well over a year now. Cage rust is real and against a striker like Campbell he will be in trouble.

The play – Take Campbell to win

Fabio Maldonado (-265) vs. Steve Bosse (+225)

You have to applaud Bosse for stepping up and taking this fight on short notice but the former hockey enforcer is in way over his head here. Maldonado might not be an elite light heavyweight but he is tough as nails and a pretty damn good boxer when he wants to be. Considering Bosse hasn’t competed since May of 2013 he won’t have the timing to take Maldonado out.

The play – Take Maldonado to win

Michael Bisping (-150) vs. CB Dollaway (+130)

The co-main event should be an interesting bout as Bisping and Dollaway desperately look to remain relevant in the UFC middleweight division. It looked like Dollaway was turning the corner last year before he ran into Lyoto Machida, or should I say Machida’s left leg ran into him. It took Machida just over a minute to remind Dollaway of his place in the division. Bisping on the other hand has traded wins and losses for over three years now and if he can’t put some wins together now he will never compete for the title.

The only way Dollaway wins this fight is if he can put Bisping on his back. The problem with that is Bisping has some pretty solid takedown defense. Look for Bisping to keep the fight standing for the most part. From there he should be able to pick Dollaway apart on the feet.

The play – Take Bisping to win and at +325 take him to win inside the distance

Demetrious Johnson (-1000) vs. Kyoji Horiguchi (+650)

Horiguchi is an explosive athlete at 125 but the 24-year-old just isn’t ready to compete with Johnson at this point in his career. Outside of a puncher’s chance Horiguchi has no way to win on Saturday. Johnson is better everywhere. Look for Johnson to continue his dominance and once again prove he is the best flyweight in the world today.

The play – At +110 take Johnson to win inside the distance

The BIG Play – At +690 take Almeida, Campbell, Maldonado, Bisping and Johnson for the parlay
