Bellator 105 Closing Odds & Results

Alexander Sarnavskiy Just hours after announcing the collapse of the Bellator 106 pay-per-view event, Bellator 105 took place tonight in New Mexico and the main card produced a number of very exciting finishes and a different result in a main event rematch. Overall, all four betting favorites on the main card cashed for a chalk night. Zero dogs came through. Here’s a betting recap for Bellator 105 based on the closing results at Several Bookmakers: Bellator 103 Favorites That Won In the main event of the evening, Will Brooks defeated Saad Awad in their rematch to advance to the finals of the season nine lightweight tournament. Brooks lost the first fight by KO, but he came through this time around with a dominant 30-27 decision via heavy ground control to win on all three judges’ scorecards. Brooks won as a -210 fav (bet $210 to win $100), while Awad was a +190 underdog (bet $100 to win $190) at close. In a lightweight matchup, Alexander Sarnavskiy defeated Ricardo Tirloni via first-round submission (triangle/armbar) to advance to the season nine lightweight tournament finals against Brooks. The young Russian phenom showed why he is one of the best prospects in all of mixed martial arts with the early stoppage over a tough vet in Tirloni. Sarnavskiy actually started the finishing sequence off with a spinning back fist that knocked Tirloni to the floor, and then on the ground he was able to get into position and finish off what I think was one of the nicest submissions of the year in all of MMA. Sarnavskiy closed as a -455 fav, while Tirloni lost as a +405 dog. In a heavyweight bout, Mighty Mo defeated Ron Sparks via first-round submission (Kimura) in one of the most embarrassing heavyweight fights I’ve seen in a while. Despite Mighty Mo have little-to-no grappling prowess, he was easily able to get Sparks down to the mat, move into the crucifix position, and then lock in the fight-ending submission to win his second-straight fight in the Bellator cage. Mighty Mo closed as a -345 fav while Sparks fell as a +315 dog. In a middleweight bout, Eugene Fadiora defeated Keith Barry via second-round TKO (punches) to possibly earn himself a spot in the next Bellator middleweight tournament. The 25-year-old Brit was able to easily get Barry to the ground early in the fight and then finish him off with a series of unanswered strikes in a performance that will open many peoples’ eyes up to his talents. Fadiora closed at -230, while Barry closed at +210.
