Overall from a betting perspective, two favorites and two underdogs won based on the closing odds at 5Dimes Sportsbook. Here’s a quick recap for each fight. Favorites That Won In the main event of the evening, Patricio Pitbull defeated Daniel Straus via fourth-round submission (rear-naked choke).

Pitbull cashed at -230 (bet $230 to win $100) while Straus lost at +210 (bet $100 to win $210). In a light heavyweight bout, Virgil Zwicker defeated Houston Alexander via split decision (29-28, 27-30, 29-28). Alexander controlled the first round on the ground after landing a takedown and won it, and Zwicker won the second round with more effective striking. It all came down to the third, and while it was very close, Zwicker was the better striker and landed the hard punches and deserved to win the round and the fight. Zwicker was -135 while Alexander was +115. Underdogs That Won In a featherweight bout, Georgi Karakhanyan defeated Bubba Jenkins via first-round technical submission (guillotine choke). Jenkins shot in for a double-leg takedown early and was caught in Karakhanyan’s signature submission move and was quickly choked out cold. Karakhanyan was +125 while Jenkins was -135. In a welterweight bout, Fernando Gonzalez defeated Marius Zaromskis via unanimous decision (30-27 x 3). Gonzalez was the aggressor throughout the bout and kept throwing powerful, accurate punches that added up on the scorecards over 15 minutes. To his credit, Zaromskis stay in the pocket the entire time, but ate too many shots and seemed slower than Gonzalez all night long. With the win, Gonzalez cashed at +100 while Zaromskis lost at -110.
