UFC Sportsbook Recap of Fight Night 110Posted by: Charlie Smith
Heading into this past weekend, many online UFC betting players felt that UFC Fight Night 110 would fail to deliver. The reason being, a rather lackluster lineup of fighters, topped off by a semi-interesting bout. However, the action we witnessed this past Saturday more than lived up to what was expected, leaving players all over the world anxious, eager to tune into this upcoming Weekend’s action.
UFC Fight Night 110 Sportsbook Recap
Although the night got off to a slow start with JJ Aldrich’s victory over Chan-Mi Jeon via unanimous decision, followed by three more bouts that would go to the judges’ scorecard, once the headlining match of the under card rolled around, things would get much more entertaining.
Vinc Pichel defeated Damien Brown via TKO to bring us the first stoppage of the night, and the televised event had 6 fights stopping short in total. However, MMA betting sites unanimously agree, none were more electrifying than Ion Cutelaba’s massacre of Henrique da Silva.
Leading up to the fight, Cutelaba channeled his inner Ali by talking a big game. Nevertheless, the Moldovan backed up every inch of what he said by delivering an astounding online UFC betting knockout within the first 30 seconds of the fight.
Cutelaba came out of the gate like a bulldog and proceeded to land a strike that affected da Silva severely. As da Silva fell to the mat, Cutelaba proceeded to mount him and land hammers that left us all cringing on our couch. The ref quickly proceeded to end the match to spare da Silva any further head trauma.
And as if that wasn’t enough, UFC sportsbook fans soon got to witness a mouth guard fly across the cage as Dan Hooker landed a deadly on Ross Pearson that sent Pearson’s body to the mat and his consciousness elsewhere. While Cutelaba’s knockout stole the spotlight due to its veracity, Hooker’s knee left a lasting impression on all of us.
From there we witnessed another knockout, albeit a much cleaner one. Derek Brunson was able to get back into the win column by landing a straight right hand that sent Daniel Kelly straight to the mat.
The night was not without some jiu-jitsu however. Ben Nguyen gave fighting fans their fill of some MMA by putting Tim Elliot away via a rear-naked choke.
Interestingly enough, it would stand to reason that the headlining match of the night – the one between two knockout artist heavyweights – would’ve been the one to end early on. But in the end, the opposite was true.
Mark Hunt ended up absorbing or dodging everything Derrick Lewis had to throw at him, which resulted in both fighters going into some deep waters. Lewis became visibly exhausted, and although Hunt was not free of fatigue, it was clear that Hunt’s small size allowed him to maintain more energy as the fight dragged on into the championship rounds.
Once the 4th round rolled around, both fighters were running on vapors. Hunt kept trying to close the distance while Lewis made his way around the cage. In the end, a last-second, Hail Mary-esque flurry of knees on behalf of Lewis left the fighter with no energy. Hunt proceeded to close the distance and unload a flurry of bombs that forced the early stoppage, giving the New Zealander a win in his home country.
After the match was over, Hunt proceeded to insult Alistair Overeem, calling him a complete cheater both in in-cage interviews and post-fight press conferences.
A Look Ahead
With this weekend’s action now behind us, online UFC betting fans can shift their attention towards UFC Fight Night 111, to be held this upcoming Saturday. The event will be held in Singapore and will be headlined by a Women’s Bantamweight bout between former champion Holly Holm and former title contender Bethe Correia.
