UFC Fight Night 34 Closing Odds & Results

Tatsuya Kawajiri UFC Fight Night 34 took place this morning live from Singapore, and the event was overall very much fun to watch considering the lack of big-name stars on the card. Overall, six favorites won while four underdogs cashed. Here’s a betting recap of UFC Fight Night 34 based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers: UFC Fight Night 34 Betting Favorites That Won In the main event of the evening, Tarec Saffiedine defeated Hyun Gyu Lim via unanimous decision. Although Lim looked strong early, he tired as the fight wore on and Saffiedine took over with a brilliant arsenal of brutal leg kicks. Saffiedine closed at -230 (bet $230 to win $100), while Lim closed at +210 (bet $100 to win $210). In a bantamweight bout, Kyung Ho Kang defeated Shunichi Shimizu via third-round submission (arm-triangle choke). Kang had two points deducted in the first round due to illegal 12-6 elbows and the judges could have screwed him had it went to the cards, but he got the tap and won as a -325 favorite, while Shimizu lost as a +295 dog. In a featherweight bout, Max Holloway defeated Will Chope via second-round TKO (punches). Chope controlled the early goings of the bout with his long range, but Holloway was able to find his distance and started beating up Chope badly before getting the TKO stoppage. Holloway closed at -265, and Chope closed at +245. In a lightweight bout, Katsunori Kikuno defeated Quinn Mulhern via unanimous decision. The fight consisted of Mulhern flopping to his back every minute and Kikuno just lying on top of him, and was one of the worst on the card. Still, Kikuno cashed at -165, while Mulhern lost at +155. In another lightweight fight, Maribek Taisunov defeated Tae Hyun Bae via unanimous decision. Taisumov showed a well-rounded game and picked up the W as a -350 favorite, while Bae lost as a +318 dog. In a bantamweight bout, Dustin Kimura defeated Jon Delos Reyes via first-round submission (armbar). Although Reyes was able to hurt Kimura early on, he stupidly got reckless and left his arm out for the taking, and Kimura snatched on for the sub victory. Kimura won as a -360 fav, while Reyes was a +325 dog. UFC Fight Night 34 Betting Underdogs That Won In a featherweight fight, Tatsuya Kawajiri picked up his first UFC win with a second-round submission (rear-naked choke) over Sean Soriano. Kawajiri looked amazing in this fight and should move into the upper echelon of the division with the victory. Kawajiri cashed as a -102 underdog, while Soriano lost as a -108 favorite. In a welterweight bout, Luiz Dutra was disqualified for illegal back of the head strikes and Kiichi Kunimoto was awarded the victory via DQ after he couldn’t continue. It was a blatant illegal move by Dutra, and the ref made a great call. Dutra lost as a -155 favorite, while Kunimoto cashed as a +145 dog. In a bantamweight bout, Royston Wee defeated Dave Galera via unanimous decision. Wee showed some solid takedown ability in the bout but overall it was one of the worst UFC fights in a while and Galera could be cut after such a poor performance. Wee cashed at +175, while Galera lost at -190. In another bantamweight fight that opened up the card, Russell Doane took out Leandro Issa via second-round submission (triangle choke). This was a very fun, back-and-forth fight between two solid grapplers but Doane proved to be superior and won via submission at the last second of round two. He won at +110, while Issa lost at -120.
