By Brodey Sheppard - March 08, 2016
A lot of fans around the world were definitely checking UFC betting odds last 5 March 2016. The legendary UFC 196 broke pay-per-view records as the event was headlined by two historical bouts.
UFC betting odds at Ladbrokes Sports were in favour of Conor McGregor, but Nate Diaz destroyed the hype around the Irishman when he placed the former into submission during the second round. Despite the short preparation for the match, Diaz featured his best performance from his career yet, defeating the crowd favourite and earning the biggest check of his life.
Meanwhile in the UFC Women’s Bantamweight event, Holly Holm became a one-hit wonder when Miesha Tate won through submission during the fifth round.
If you weren’t able to watch the match or view the UFC betting odds on Sports Bet, read through our highlights below. We have compiled a list of reviews regarding the biggest victors and losers from the event.
Nate Diaz, the Unlikely Underdog
Early on, Conor McGregor was a crowd favourite. He had enough preparation and publicity long before the fight. When Rafael Dos Anjos dropped out of their match due to a foot injury, Nate Diaz was drafted to face ‘The Notorious’ Irishman. Despite the short notice on the Stockton bad boy, it was still clear that there were 3 challenges that McGregor would face against Diaz.
He was able to pull off a remarkable performance when he weathered through the Irishman’s bouts early on the fight. Diaz was able to go through a small window of opportunity in the second round, ending the fight with a rear-naked choke.
New bookmakers online were wise to feature this match which was Diaz’s 15th UFC victory under his belt.
Miesha Tate’s Unexpected Rear-Naked Choke
Considering her spectacular win against Ronda Rousey, many were rooting for Holly Holm at UFC 196. While a lot of people were placing bets in favour of Holm, it was still a wise decision to use sports betting bonus codes on Miesha Tate. Long before the event, Miesha Tate has carried a heart crafted for a champion.
Almost all of Tate’s fight ended with a bang. During the first rounds, she would fare poorly on scorecards, only to find a way to win during the last rounds. But her rear-naked choke against Holm was her most remarkable yet.
Tate moved with calmly and carefully during the fifth round while avoiding Holm’s most powerful strikes. Despite her measured moves, Tate still fared poorly on the scorecards, and she knew she had to take Holm down is she wanted to win the fight.
More sports betting best offers are likely to come out whenever Tate is drafted for a fight because what she did in her match against Holm was one for the books. With under two minutes to go in the fifth round, Tate lunged in for a takedown and scrambled to control Holm from behind. She then ended the fight through a rear-naked choke with 90 seconds left in the round.
