While Evans hit a couple of punches and a good head kick in the bout, Jones was never in real danger.

According to oddsmakers, Jones had odds of -505 to win Saturday’s bout, which means a $505 wager on Jones will pay out an additional $100.

In the second round, a fatigued Mills put up little fight, and MacDonald continued his ground and pound to earn the stoppage. MacDonald had odds of -500 to beat Mills, which means a wager of $500 on MacDonald will pay out an additional $100
