Overall, five favorites won while four underdogs cashed and one fight closed as a Pick ’em. Here’s a betting recap for UFC Fight Night 41 based on the closing results at Several Bookmakers. Favorites That Won In the main event of the evening, Gegard Mousasi defeated Mark Munoz via first-round submission (rear-naked choke). Mousasi was able to fend off Munoz’ takedown attempts and win in the grappling exchanges before sinking in a beautiful submission late in the first round. He scored as a -255 favorite (bet $255 to win $100), while Munoz lost as a +235 underdog (bet $100 to win $235). In a lightweight bout, Nick Hein defeated Drew Dober via unanimous decision (29-28 x 2, 30-27). Although Dober was tough, Hein was just a better fighter throughout and definitely deserved the win. Hein scored at -140, while Dober lost at +130. In a bantamweight bout, Yuri Alcantara defeated Vaughan Lee via first-round KO (punches). Alcantara clipped Lee in the first minute of the fight and finished him easily for the knockout win. Alcantara scored as a -335 favorite while Lee lost as a +290 dog. In a featherweight bout, Maximo Blanco defeated Andy Ogle via unanimous decision (29-28 x 3). Blanco got himself into trouble at times but otherwise controlled the majority of the fight for the win. Blanco won as a -225 favorite, while Ogle lost as a +205 dog. In a heavyweight bout, Ruslan Magomedov defeated Victor Pesta via unanimous decision (29-28 x 3). Although Pesta hurt Magomedov early in the fight, the Russian rallied back to steal the second and third rounds to claim the victory on the scorecards. Magomedov hit at -170, while Pesta lost at +160. Underdogs That Won In the co-main event of the evening, CB Dollaway defeated Francis Carmont via unanimous decision (30-27 x 2, 29-28). Dollaway’s striking and wrestling looked great and he easily won the fight. He cashed at +145, while Carmont lost at -155. In a middleweight bout, Sean Strickland defeated Luke Barnatt via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 30-27). This was an awful fight between two fighters who disappointed greatly, and it was a total toss-up once it hit the judges’ cards, although most leaned towards Barnatt slightly. Strickland cashed at +145, while Barnatt lost at -155. In a featherweight bout, Niklas Backstrom defeated Tom Niinimaki via first-round submission (rear-naked choke). Backstrom was taken down early but regained his composure, hit Niinimaki with a nice knee, then grabbed him a bulldog choke before transitioning into a rear-naked choke with no hooks. Backstrom hit as a +225 dog, while Niinimaki lost as a -245 favorite. In a welterweight bout, Peter Sobotta defeated Pawel Pawlak via unanimous decision (30-27 x 3). Sobotta’s leg kicks and takedowns were enough for him to get a clean sweep on the scorecards over Pawlak, who did absolutely nothing in the fight. Sobotta scored at +140, while Pawlak lost at -150. Pick ‘Em Fights In a middleweight bout, Magnus Cedenblad defeated Krzysztof Jotko via second-round submission (guillotine choke). Cedenblad grabbed a nice choke with just a few seconds left in round two for the all-star win. Both men closed at -105.
