UFC 124 Betting Results
Heavily-favored Georges St-Pierre (21-2-0) once again dominated Josh Koscheck (15-5-0) at UFC 124. The Welterweight champ established a stiff jab that controlled the fight for all five rounds, punishing Koscheck’s face along the way. St-Pierre (a very safe -450 at Sportsbook.ag) retained his title via unanimous 50-45 decision.
The surprises on the UFC 124 fight card came from Mac Danzig and Jim Miller. Danzig (21-7-1) was the best UFC 124 underdog bet you could have made on Saturday night. UFC odds had him coming into his fight with Joe Stevenson (31-12-0) as a +250 underdog at 5Dimes, but he promptly shocked the Bell Centre crowd with a stiff left hook to Stevenson’s chin for a first-round KO win.
The other underdog winner was UFC veteran Miller (19-2-0). It wasn’t the biggest payday as Miller was listed at even-money, but it was the ease in which he won that was surprising. Still in the first round, Miller locked in a knee bar and made Charles Oliveira (14-1-0) tap out, winning not only the fight but also the UFC 124 Submission of the Night award.
After listening to Sean McCorkle (10-1-0) mouth off about how ugly and weak he was, Stefan Struve (21-4-0) showed everyone watching that the UFC odds on him should have been bigger than just a -167 favorite. Struve easily defended McCorkle’s early attempt at a Kimura and quickly gained a dominant position to punish him for a first-round TKO.
