So many of you come to Gambling911.com to get all the latest UFC and MMA payout results for each fighter.  We are your one stop source for this information, providing live results throughout the night on Alberta, Canada's most trafficked website.  UFC payout results are typically among our most read reports and UFC 87 was certainly no exception.   

UFC 87 results featured mostly favorites coming out on top early on with one notable exception. Jon Jones beat Andre Gusmao as a relatively small underdog paying out 2/1 odds or $200 for every $100 bet.  In fact, only two underdogs won their respective fights this evening. 

UFC betting has come to symbolize favorites winning - pretty much at a 90 percent or better clip.

Case in point:

Cheick Kongo def. Dan Evensen via TKO (strikes) -- Round 1, 4:55. Kongo was a huge favorite in this one.

Ben Saunders def. Ryan Thomas via submission (arm-bar) -- Round 2, 2:28. Saunders was around a -300 favorite.

Chris Wilson def. Steve Bruno via unanimous decision. One could argue Bruno could have won this and gamblers who bet him may have walked off with nearly $300 for every $100 bet.

Tamdan McCrory def. Luke Cummo via unanimous decision as well. This, however, was a fairly even matchup in the eyes of odds makers.

Demian Maia def. Jason MacDonald via submission (rear-naked choke) -- Round 3, 2:44. Again, Maia was better than a -200 favorite.

Kenny Florian def. Roger Huerta via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).  Florian was around a -160 favorite heading into this one. 

Rob Emerson def. Manny Gamburyan via TKO (strikes) -- Round 1, 0:12.  Emerson was a rare big underdog to win, paying nearly $300 for every $100 bet. 

Brock Lesnar def. Heath Herring via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-26).  No surprise here.  He was a pretty big favorite.

Georges St. Pierre def. Jon Fitch via unanimous decision (50-43, 50-44, 50-44).  This one went into round 5.
