UFC Fight Night 48 Closing Odds & Results

Alberto-Wang UFC Fight Night 48 took place this morning at CotaiArena in Macau, China, and the card was overall pretty solid as it featured a number of impressive stoppages from a variety of fighters. Overall, seven favorites came through while three underdogs scored. Here’s a betting recap for UFC Fight Night 48 based on the closing results at Several Bookmakers. Favorites That Won In the main event of the evening, Michael Bisping defeated Cung Le via fourth-round TKO (knee and punches). Bisping lit up Le with his boxing for much of the fight until the finish came early in the fourth round, a nice knee by Bisping leading to Le falling on his back and the referee stopping the bout. Bisping closed as a -235 favorite (bet $235 to win $100) while Le was a +215 dog (bet $100 to win $215). In the co-main event of the evening, Tyron Woodley defeated Dong Hyun Km via first-round TKO (punches). Woodley caught Kim with a big right hand behind the ear to put him down and get the victory. He score as a -210 fav while Kim was +190. In a welterweight bout, Alberto Mina defeated Shinsho Anzai via first-round TKO (punches). Mina and Anzai exchanged bombs for the better part of five minutes before Mina eventually caught Anzai with a brutal uppercut and knocked him out for his first UFC victory. Mina was -225 while Anzai was +205. In a bantamweight bout, Yuta Sasaki defeated Roland Delorme via first-round submission (rear-naked choke). Sasaki got the back of Delorme early and quickly choked him out for his first UFC win. Sasaki was -140 while Delorme was +130. In a welterweight bout, Colby Covington defeated Wang Anying vai first-round TKO (punches). Covington took Anying down and beat him up bad en route to a brutal first-round stoppage. Covington was -430 while Anying was +380. In a bantamweight bout, Royston Wee defeat Yao Zhikui vai split decision (29-28, 29-28, 27-30). Wee had enough control throughout 15 minutes to squeak this one out, although Zhikui’s striking was on point and he made it close. Wee was -220 while Zhikui was +200. In a women’s bantamweight bout, Milana Dudieva defeated Elizabeth Phillips via split decision (29-28, 30-27, 28-29). Dudieva’s striking was a bit more powerful but Phillips had more top control during the fight and arguably was robbed of the win. Dudieva was -147 while Phillips was +137. Underdogs That Won In a lightweight bout, Zhang Lipeng defeated Brendan O’Reilly via unanimous decision (39-27, 29-28, 29-28). Lipeng used his wrestling to take O’Reilly  down to the floor and grind him out for a dominant victory. Lipeng was +140 while O’Reilly was -150. In the finals of the TUF China featherweight tournament, Ning Guangyou defeated Yang Jianping via unanimous decision (29-28 x 3) to become the next TUF China winner. It was a horrible fight that was marred by minute-long stretches of no strikes thrown, but the judges believed Guangyou did enough to win and he took the nod on their scorecards. Guangyou was +205 while Jianping was -225. In a welterweight bout, Wang Sai defeated Danny Mitchell via unanimous decision (29-28 x 3). Sai controlled the later two rounds with his striking as Mitchell found it difficult to get the fight to the floor. He cashed as a dog, and Mitchell lost as a fav. Sai was +175 while Mitchell was -190.
