Jaynes’ first round victory was good for +650.
2T) Jim Miller wins in Round One (+750)

4) Austin Hubbard by KO/TKO (+630)

Hubbard was awarded a TKO via retirement when Rohskopf failed to answer the bell to begin the third round. Hubbard by KO/TKO paid +630.
5) Curtis Blaydes by Decision (+550)

Blaydes by decision closed at +550.
