UFC 129 Betting Recap
TORONTO, Ontario (TheSpread) – Two champions entered as -500 favorites at UFC 129 and both men left the event with their titles still intact.
Both champions entered the bouts with money lines of -500 according to oddsmakers from online sportsbook Bodog.com. That means a wager of $500 on either champion will pay out an additional $100.
In the main event, St. Pierre out-struck Shields in a fight that never went to the ground. St. Pierre won the first three rounds thanks to a couple of knockdowns, but the champion suffered from vision problems that allowed Shields to win the final two rounds in the eyes of two of the three judges.
In the co-main event, the champion Aldo peppered Hominick with leg kicks and big punches and put cuts under both of Hominick’s eyes along with a massive hematoma on the forehead of the challenger. Hominick rallied to dominate the final round, but it was too little, too late, as Aldo won the decision.
