UFC 178: Johnson vs Cariaso Results and Betting Recap

It was a terrible night for us. We had some close calls, but in the end it was a 1-5 night for -8.50 units.

Our sixth and final bet of the night was Dustin Poirier to defeat Conor McGregor in the people’s main event. The bet didn’t last long as McGregor got a first round TKO win. We lose our 2 unit bet.

Our fifth bet of the night was our free bet. We had 4 units on Tim Kennedy at 2.30 (+130) to defeat Yoel Romero. By fight time, the odds on Kennedy were below 2.00 (+100). Round 1 was fought mostly on the feet and Romero had a distinct speed advantage. The tide turned in Kennedy’s favour in round 2. Romero appeared to tire and his movement and striking slowed down significantly. It was 19-19 heading to round 3. Romero was late getting off his stool, but the fight continued anyway. It didn’t take long for him to TKO Kennedy and we lose our 4 unit bet.

Our fourth bet of the night was another 2 unit bet, this time on Amanda Nunes to defeat the returning Cat Zingano. We placed the bet at odds of 3.30 (+230), but by fight time, the best you could get was 295 (+195). Nunes looked absolutely awesome for the first half of the round, landing devastating ground and pound. Unfortunately she decided to give up top position by going for a leg lock and Zingano won the second half of the round. Round 2 saw Zingano get top position early and maintain it for basically the entire round. Round 3 saw Zingano get on top once again and this time she got the finish with her ground and pound. We lose our 2 unit bet.

Our third bet of the night was on the main event of the prelims. We had Takeya Mizugaki to defeat Dominick Cruz. The bet was 2 units at 5.00 (+400) and was one of our biggest underdog bets of all time! Cruz looked absolutely awesome and was able to dispatch Mizugaki early in round #1. We lose our 2 unit bet.

Our second bet of the night was a pretty big underdog. We had Patrick Cote to defeat Stephen Thompson and the bet was 2 units at 4.50 (+350). Round 1 was really close with neither guy landing anything particularly notable. We scored it 10-9 Thompson, but wouldn’t have been surprised if it had gone to Cote. Round 2 was more clearly Thompson’s. Thompson controlled the pace and landed the most notable strikes. Round 3 was the worst yet for Cote as he got clipped a couple time. We had it 30-27 Thompson. Thompson ended up taking the fight 30-27 and 29-28×2 meaning we lose our 2 unit bet.

Our first bet of the night was on the opening fight of the card as we had Manny Gamburyan to defeat Cody Gibson. The bet was 2 units at 2.75 (+175). The first round wasn’t a landslide, but Gibson did enough to make it pretty clear he won the round which was on the feet for the most part. Round 2 was pretty similar and it looked like Gibson was going to make it 20-18. Luckily for us, Gamburyan was able to lock up his extremely well tested guillotine to finish the fight with 4 seconds left in the round. We profit 3.50 units.

We’ll be back for the double UFC Fight Night card next week. Remember to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest.
