WSOF 14 Closing Odds & Results

Jared-Hamman WSOF 14 took place Saturday night at Edmonton Expo Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and the main card proved to be very exciting as it featured three brutal finishes, including one that was an upset. Overall from a betting perspective, three favorites came through while one underdog cashed based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers. Here’s a quick recap for each fight. Favorites That Won In the main event of the evening, Jake Shields defeated Ryan Ford via first-round submission (rear-naked choke). Ford rocked Shields early in the fight with a jab, but Shields recovered quickly, regained his focus, and soon got this fight to the mat, where he absolutely schooled Ford en route to the submission win. It was revealed after the fight that Ford fought with a broken arm, but either way it was a great performance by Shields, who won in his first fight since being released by the UFC. Shields cashed as a -475 favorite (bet $475 to win $100) while Ford lost as a +420 underdog (bet $100 to win $420). With the win Shields, earned a shot at the WSOF welterweight title. In a featherweight bout, Chris Horodecki defeated Luis Huete via unanimous decision (30-27 x 3). Horodecki used his wrestling to take Huete down to the ground and grind out a relatively uninspired decision victory in front of the Canadian crowd. This was the least entertaining fight on the card, but regardless Horodecki cashed as a -295 favorite while Huete lost as a +265 dog. In a light heavyweight bout, Jared Hamman defeated Luke Harris via first-round KO (punches). Harris tried to clinch up with Hamman against the fence and get the fight to the mat, but it stayed on the feet where Hamman showed he was the much better striker, finishing the fight with a brutal first-round KO from punches up against the fence. Hamman looks much better at 205lbs and the WSOF picked up a gem in this exciting fighter, as far as I’m concerned. Hamman was -170 while Harris was +160. Underdogs That Won In the co-main event of the evening, Smealinho Rama defeated Derrick Mehmen via first-round KO (punches) to claim the inaugural WSOF heavyweight title. Rama stuffed Mehmen’s lone takedown attempt early in the fight and then started landing some vicious strikes on Mehmen, rocking “Caveman” and dropping him to the canvas. Mehmen survived the initial onslaught but Rama kept the pressure on the referee was quickly forced to stop the action. Rama cashed as a +150 dog while Mehmen lost as a -160 favorite. Look for the UFC to try and sign Rama soon.
