Here’s a betting recap of UFC on FOX 9 based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers: UFC on FOX 9 Betting Favorites That Won In the main event of the evening, Demetrious Johnson knocked out Joseph Benavidez in the first round with brutal punches. It was one of the most unexpected KOs in UFC title history, and Johnson scored at -130 (bet $130 to win $100), while Benavidez lost as a +120 dog ($100 to win $120). In a bantamweight match, Urijah Faber defeated Michael McDonald via second-round submission (guillotine choke). Faber had one of the best performances of his career and won as a -145 favorite, while McDonald fell at +135. In a featherweight bout, Chad Mendes defeated Nik Lentz via unanimous decision. Mendes wasn’t his usual beastly self, but he did enough to win and cashed at -840, while Lentz lost at +660. In a lightweight bout, Joe Lauzon won a unanimous decision over Mac Danzig. Lauzon looked awesome and won as a -175 favorite, while Danzig lost at +165 and his UFC career may be over after such a poor showing. In a welterweight fight, Ryan LaFlare outpointed Court McGee en route to a unanimous decision win. LaFlare used his superior wrestling and size to steal a decision as a -120 fav, while McGee lost at +110. In a lightweight fight, Edson Barboza defeated Danny Castillo via controversial majority decision. Barboza should have lost 10-8 in round one, but two judges gave it only 10-9 Castillo and Barboza ended up stealing a majority decision as a -270 favorite, while Castillo lost as a +248 dog. In a lightweight match, Sam Stout defeated Cody McKenzie via unanimous decision. Stout dominated en route to a victory at -265, while McKenzie lost at +245. In a flyweight bout, Alptekin Ozikilic defeated Darren Uyenoyama via split decision. Ozkilic looked good throughout three rounds to win at -230, while Uyenoyama will likely be cut after a poor performance at +210.

It was a very closely-contested bout that Green won at +140, while Healy lost at -150. In a flyweight bout, Zach Makovsky defeated Scott Jorgensen via unanimous decision.
