UFC Fight Night 42 Closing Odds & Results

Bryan Caraway UFC Fight Night 42 took place tonight (June 7, 2014) at Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the card was up-and-down as it featured a number of cool finishes but also some unfortunate controversy. Overall, eight favorites won while two underdogs cashed and one fight closed as a Pick ’em. Here’s a betting recap for UFC Fight Night 42 based on the closing results at Several Bookmakers. Favorites That Won In the main event of the evening, Benson Henderson defeated Rustam Khabilov via fourth-round submission (rear-naked choke). The fight was extremely competitive for the first three rounds but in the fourth Henderson landed a huge uppercut that rocked Khabilov and he finished his opponent off with a quick submission. The former champion cashed as a -210 favorite (bet $210 to win $100) while Khabilov lost as a +190 dog (bet $100 to win $190). In a flyweight bout, John Dodson defeated John Moraga via second-round TKO (broken nose). Dodson was outpointing Moraga on the feet but late in the second decided to go for the finish and broke Moraga’s nose with a vicious knee straight to the face. The fight was then stopped in between rounds by the doctor. Dodson won at -570 while Moraga lost at +480. In a lightweight matchup, Rafael dos Anjos defeated Jason High via second-round TKO (punches). High looked good early on with his takedowns but he began to fade badly and RDA was able to secure the stoppage in round two via strikes. RDA won as a -280 favorite while High lost as a +255 dog. In a lightweight bout, Piotr Hallmann defeated Yves Edwards via third-round submission (rear-naked choke). Edwards looked sharp early on but fatigued down the stretch and Hallmann was able to take the fight into deep waters and secure the slick submission. Hallmann cashed at -155 while Edwards lost at +145. In a flyweight bout, Sergio Pettis defeated Yaotzin Meza via unanimous decision (29-28 x 3). Pettis’ striking was the difference in this one but he clearly needs to drop to 125lbs as he was once against outsized by his opponent at 135. Pettis was -660 and Meza was +540. In a bantamweight bout, Scott Jorgensen defeated Danny Martinez via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28). Jorgensen’s wrestling proved to be enough to earn him the nod on the judges’ cards but he was close to being knocked out in round two and was lucky he didn’t go out cold. Still, he cashed as a -240 favorite while Martinez lost as a +220 dog. In a lightweight bout, Jon Tuck defeated Jake Lindsey via third-round submission (kick to the body). Tuck dominated the fight in every area before getting a very strange finish late in the third round, one that you should go and watch if you haven’t seen it yet. Tuck won at -150 while Lindsey lost at +140. In a light heavyweight bout, Pat Cummins defeated Roger Narvaez via second-round TKO (punches). Cummins took down Narvaez at will and eventually pounded him out  in the second round for the stoppage. Cummins was a -310 favorite while Narvaez lost as a +280 dog. Underdogs That Won In a lightweight bout, Diego Sanchez defeated Ross Pearson via split decision (27-30, 30-27, 29-28). Most believed that Pearson did enough with his striking to win the decision but for some reason the judges gave it to Sanchez and he won by controversial decision yet again. Sanchez won at +125 while Pearson lost at -135. In a bantamweight bout, Bryan Caraway defeated Erik Perez via second-round submission (rear-naked choke). The first round was quite close but in the second Perez made a mistake which allowed Caraway to get his back and submit him with his signature move. Caraway was +110 while Perez was -120. Pick ‘Em Fights In a welterweight bout, Lance Benoist defeated Bobby Voelker via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28 x 2). Benoist struggled with his conditioning but he was still able to take Voelker down enough times during the fight to get the judges to give it to him. Both men closed the same, at -105.
