DaveBets recaps last night's UFC Fight Night and how did they manage the different odds for this matchup.

<div><h2 style="text-align:center;">Post-Fight Analysis / Recap</h2><h2 style="text-align:center;">The Weekly Punching Parlay Episode 10</h2><div><p>Off to work they go; Matt came out looking super aggressive in the first round. Awesome boxing whilst mixing in some leg kicks was a great early combination for Sayles, his right hand is beautiful.</p><p>Halfway through the first round Matt dropped Kyle, pounced on him with ground and pound for a good minute until Kyle reversed the ground striking into a kneebar (well, an attempted one). A more experienced BJJ specialist would have been able to finish it but Kyle didn’t seem all that effective with his jujitsu offence. Right back into the ground and pound, Matt continued to piece up Kyle on the ground until the buzzer sounded for round two. What a great first round for Matt it was, proving why he was the big favourite in that fight.</p><p>Nelson began the second slightly more positively than the first, attempting grappling exchanges and testing his luck in the submission department for the second time. Taking Sayles back quite easily and suddenly the fight started to even out, Nelson was clearly more confident on the ground as he kept Sayles in a rear naked choke position for the majority of the second half of the second round. At this point, the fight is anybody’s to take.</p><p>Third round as expected begins with both fighter’s swinging sluggish due to fatigue, Kyle Nelson was spamming takedowns with no energy left to finish them… Sayles sprawled perfectly until eventually he capitalized and secured a full mounted position, Kyle became so sloppy that he fell to the floor</p><p>and was then pushed onto his back troubling danger. Before we knew it, Matt Sayles had locked in a tight ‘head and arm choke’ and Kyle Nelson was tapping out, winner by Submission… Matt Sayles.</p><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;🔒 &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/SaylesMMA?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@SaylesMMA&lt;/a&gt; locks up the tight choke &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/UFCOttawa?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#UFCOttawa&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/xra9bemi5Q\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/xra9bemi5Q&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— ESPN MMA (@espnmma) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/espnmma/status/1124807238902661120?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;May 4, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</div><div> </div><h2>Nordine Taleb vs Kyle Prepolec</h2><p>Nothing worth screaming about as the first round played out, Nordine’s leg kicks and confidence was the only thing that stood out to me as both fighters tested their range and felt each other out. Smart fight IQ from Nordine was apparent as he methodically landed and defended strikes with ease. Incredible leg kicks from Taleb with a technique displaying speed and precision, round one ended and it was a lob sided round for Taleb.</p><p>The second round started pretty much where the first left off, Nordine continued to win a striking battle as Kyle struggles to get inside the range of Nordine and receives some nasty strikes nearly getting knocked out at one point. Another round in favour of Nordine and as the camera pans out, we could see the welts on Kyles mid-section, ouch!</p><p>There was a good chance Kyle was behind two rounds after round two, so I expected to see him give it all or nothing fighting in his home country and all. Credit where credit is due, Kyle is fighting the bigger man on a week’s notice, he has stepped up a weight division and somehow managed to avoid getting knocked out. The round ends and Nordine had clearly won a unanimous decision after beating Kyle from pillar to post.</p><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Counter combo lands for &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/TNT83MMA?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@TNT83MMA&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/UFCOttawa?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#UFCOttawa&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/kusJmzPEsf\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/kusJmzPEsf&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— ESPN MMA (@espnmma) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/espnmma/status/1124812772112343040?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;May 4, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</div><div> </div><h2>Macy Chiasson vs Sarah Moras</h2><p>Instantly Sarah Moras took the fight to the ground and secured a full guard position on the mat. Halfway through the round and Sarah was still in the same position, not much offence but maintaining top control. With a minute remaining, Macy managed to scramble as it seems Sarah had gassed herself slightly. Macy now on top landing heavy significant strikes finished off the round by ground and pounding Sarah.</p><p>Round two and Sarah repeats the process by going for the takedown, easily readable Macy sprawled and then wound up on the top position. Working her strikes a lot more than Sarah did, Macy is aggressive on the ground just as much as she is on the feet. A small-time passed then Macy found herself in full mount, pounded Sarah’s face into the canvas and the referee stepped in and stopped the fight. Winner by TKO, Macy Chiasson.</p><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;&lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/UFCOttawa?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#UFCOttawa&lt;/a&gt; prelims end in vicious fashion thanks to &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/macy_chiasson?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@macy_chiasson&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Main card on ESPN+ kicks off at 8 p.m. ET ➡️ &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/k41Og8VagF\"&gt;https://t.co/k41Og8VagF&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/IXm8z05BlS\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/IXm8z05BlS&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— ESPN MMA (@espnmma) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/espnmma/status/1124825855828455425?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;May 4, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</div><div> </div><p>Another week and another bet slip bites the dust. ‘The Weekly Punching Parlay’ cashes for the tenth time, yep… ten times consecutively, returning a profit of over 10 units.

The referee warned to stand the fight up, then eventually steps in and tells both fighters to start on the feet. 61 strikes from Merab to Brads mere 28 towards the end of round two, another one for Merab.</p><p>With a spring in his step, Brad realised he was down two rounds. With more forward pressure Brad just fell into another takedown and then back to the floor with Merab on top of him, just what I feared happened and Brad was just too easy to take down in this fight.</p><h2>Al Iaquinta vs Donald Cerrone</h2><p>With 9 decisions on the scorecard and quite a lacklustre event in terms of entertainment, I think the UFC matched up to the fights on this card quite too well because stylistically… majority of the fighters were simply similar in fighting styles which led to a lot of fights that went the distance.</p><p>Thankfully, the main event delivered and it delivered big time. An absolute brawl from start to finish and Cowboy yet again impressed fans with what seems to be a late-career resurgence from Donald Cerrone. Coming into this fight Al Iaquinta hadn’t been knocked out or knocked down, Cerrone managed to knock Al down multiple times and also came close to the finish more than once.</p><p>I’ll be honest, I didn’t have faith in Cowboy but he’s proved once again that he’s not playing around and since the birth of his baby boy the future UFC Hall of Famer Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone is now on a 3-0 fight streak in one of the toughest weight classes on the planet. Hat’s of to the ageing vet, after having his hand raised in a unanimous decision victory, he called out the two biggest names in the division… Khabib and Conor, will he get his wishes? Doubtful.</p><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;\"I want the title...
