UFC 167 took place tonight in Las Vegas, NV, and it turned out to be one of the best cards of the year a it produced a number of sweet finishes as well as an extremely controversial main event decision that left the MMA world spinning. Overall, 10 betting favorites won while just two underdogs hit. Here’s a betting recap of UFC 167 based on the closing odds at 5Dimes Sportsbook: UFC 167 Betting Favorites That Won In the main event of the evening, Georges St-Pierre defeated Johny Hendricks via split decision in one of the worst decisions of the year. I gave the fight to Hendricks 48-47 and 99 percent of people that I trust gave it to Hendricks by that same score too, yet for some reason two of the judges in Nevada saw it for St-Pierre. The champ retained the title as a -192 favorite (bet $192 to win $100), while Hendricks lost as a +177 dog (bet $100 to win $177). The rematch is likely to happen soon.

Evans easily won as a -240 fav, while Sonnen lost as a +200 underdog. In a welterweight bout, Tyron Woodley knocked out Josh Koscheck in the first round with punches.
