I only had 2 betting tips for UFC Fight Night 44, so I knew I’d either be facing a small loss or a pretty big profit depending on how the bets played out. Unfortunately one of my bets lost, resulting in a small loss of 5.70 units.
Here’s how each of our betting tips for UFC Fight Night 44 played out…
HACRAN DIAS vs RICARDO LAMAS
OUR BET: 10.00 Units on Hacran Dias to win at odds of 2.75 | +175 | 7/4
OUR PROFIT / LOSS: 10.00 Units Lost
Even though Hacran Dias lost, I still believe he was a good bet to win at odds of 2.75 | +175 | 7/4.
Ricardo Lamas has made big improvements since his last fight against Jose Aldo and he was able to control Dias against the cage for large periods of the fight.
Many people disagreed with the judges decision and felt that Dias won this fight, but I’m not so sure, it was a very close match up…
CUB SWANSON vs JEREMY STEPHENS
OUR BET: 10.00 Units on Cub Swanson to win at odds of 1.43 | -232 | 43/100
OUR PROFIT / LOSS: 4.30 Units Profit
There weren’t many surprises in this fight, as both guys stood in the pocket and traded punches for 25 minutes. Cub Swanson ended up landing more strikes and doing more damage, which earned him the unanimous decision victory.
Swanson had Stephens hurt a few times throughout the fight, but Stephens was able to hang on in there and last the distance.
This was Cub Swanson’s 6th consecutive win, which puts him at the front of the queue for a shot at the Featherweight title.
