UFC 195 Betting Results

Written by MMARecap Staff on . Posted in Betting Results

The first fight of 2016 is in the books. We made nine bets on the card and went 5-4 but were profitable by 2.82 units or a ROI of 15.67%. The night of action was headlined by Robbie Lawler defending his belt against Carlos Condit. Let’s get onto our results.

First up we will tackle our losing bets. Drew Dober defeated Scott Holtzman via unanimous decision. By our model, Dober should have been outclassed by Holtzman’s takedowns, but it was Dober who surprised many with his take downs of Holtzman. We had a single unit bet on Holtzman and of course lost that unit.

We then had Kyle Noke taking on late notice replacement Alex Morono. Statistically speaking, short notice UFC debut fighters lose a lot more than they win. It is why Noke was a near 3 to 1 favorite over Morono and we bet 1.5 units on Noke to win. A close split decision loss for Noke and for us.

Abel Trujillo surprised everyone with his quick finish of Tony Sims. Stylistically Sims was the younger, faster fighter, but Trujillo got a much needed win but we lost 1.5 units on this fight.

Our last loss on the night was Andrei Arlovski. While the “old” Arlovski was not favored at all in this fight, his resurgence since returning the UFC warranted him a closer look. Miicic however was absolutely dominant in his quick 54 second KO of Arlovski. With Arlovsky’s underdog status, we felt it was only appropriate to bet a single unit on him.

In all, the four fights we lost we bet a total of 5 units.

The winning fights were just as exciting. Our first win of the night was Justine Kish making her UFC debut against Nina Ansaroff. The fight was a lot closer than the 30-27×2 scorecard would have you believe. Wish was a highly touted prospect and was the odds on favorite at -235. We bet 2 units on her to win .85 units.

The biggest favorite of the night was Michael McDonald taking on Masanori Kanehara. McDonald was a huge -535 and looked like he was going to lose the fight to Kanehara multiple times. In the first round McDonald was trapped in a guillotine choke and in the second an arm triangle choke. He was able to escape the arm triangle and quickly took Kanehara’s back and sunk in a fight winning rear naked choke. We bet 2 units on him to win .37 units.

Brian Ortega had a very slow start against the very dangerous Diego Brandao. Brandao like Trujillo earlier needed a win and showed up to fight. Ortega was extremely patient and down on the score cards had one of the best jiu jitsu transitions ever seen inside the octagon eventually ending up with a fight ending triangle choke that force Brandao to tap. We bet 2 units on Ortega to win 1.09.

Joe Rogan’s most anticipated fight was between Albert Tumenov and Lorenz Larkin. Larkin punished Tumenov’s legs with leg kick after leg kick. Tumenov still pressed forward in the action and the fight was razor thin close but Tumenov was able to escape with the split decision victory and our 2 unit bet at -253 netted us .79 units.

The main event was expected to see fireworks and it delivered. While not as crazy as Lawler’s previous title defense, Condit showed up. Condit outstruck Lawler in the fight and many had him winning. It all came down to a very close third round and two judges saw it for Lawler, while one saw it for Condit. We expect the fight to be a blood bath with Lawler winning and we bet big on Lawler. Our 5 unit bet at -106 returned us 4.72 units.

In all we bet 18 units and walked away with 20.82 or a profit of 2.82 units. While not the greatest results we’ve had, any time we are profitable it is a good thing. Please take a look at our Cappertek results where you can find our picks. We will soon be putting our picks behind a paywall, but for now, they are free for everyone to see.

Next card is UFC Fight Night 81, where we will be looking at as many as 9 bets on that card.

There’s nothing wrong with a fun fight. And that’s what we got out of UFC 153. The card featured several changes from the onset, giving us Anderson Silva vs Stephan Bonnar as a main event.

Jon Fitch said he was not only fighting for the victory, but also for fight of the night honors. That’s exactly what he got in his battle with Erick Silva. Fitch put Silva on his back like he has to so many other opponents, but Silva was able to escape and nearly finish Fitch with submissions. It was an amazing back and forth fight and well deserving of the fight of the night award.

In pre-fight interviews Dave Herman said that jiu-jitsu didn’t work as he had never been submitted before. Antonio Nogueira proved him wrong and submitted him with an armbar late in the second round. It wasn’t the first submission he went after, but it was the one that Herman couldn’t get out of and was forced to tap to.

Rony Jason looked amazingly better against Sam Sicilia than he did at UFC 147 which served as The Ultimate Fighter Brazil finale. Both fighters were able to hurt the other with massive right hands but in the end it was Jason who was able to earn the technical knockout with punches and elbows.

Anderson Silva defeated Stephan Bonnar by TKO (strikes) – Round 1, 4:40 –

UFC 146 Results: Dos Santos Defends Title, Cain Bloodies Big Foot

Written by MMARecap Staff on . Posted in Results

UFC 146 took place at the MGM Grand tonight in Las Vegas, Nevada for the first all heavyweight card in UFC history. Junior dos Santos defended his belt for the first time against Frank Mir, when he finished him with strikes three minutes into the second round. Mir didn’t have much for dos Santos offense wise, and seemed defeated when he couldn’t get the fight to the floor.

In the co-main event, it was Cain Velasquez who bloodied up Antonio Silva early in the fight from half guard, and opened up a huge cut over the eye of Silva. Referee Yves Lavigne even stopped the fight at one point to have the doctor check on the cut, but the fight continued. After another minute, LaVigne stepped in to stop the bout, and give Velasquez his first win since losing his belt to Junior dos Santos.

The entire main card was all finishes, and none of the fights entered the third round. The collective time for all the main card fights was 21:50, and it left plenty of time to show some of the under card fights. Below are the full results for UFC 146.
