UFC 135 Betting Odds

Jon “Bones” Jones will be a heavy favorite to defend his UFC Light Heavyweight title against former champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 135 this Saturday night, but according to Jackson MMA oddsmakers have it all wrong.

As a 5Dimes favorite the price on Jones currently sits at -550. That price has steadily risen from the original line of -340. Most MMA bettors at 5Dimes seem to think Jones will dominate Jackson and have pushed the upset payout on Rampage up from +280 to the current +425 line.


MMA Betting: UFC Fight Night Live

Jake Shields will be looking to find his place within the talent-rich welterweight division at UFC Fight Night Live when he steps into the Octagon against hard-hitting Jake Ellenberger.

Shields agreed to go on with the fight despite the tragic loss of his father in late August, only weeks before the event. Oddsmakers at 5Dimes don’t seem to think the personal circumstances will affect his performance and have him listed as a -170 favorite over Ellenberger. That line has dropped from an original line of -230 as more bettors opt for the Ellenberger upset.

UFC 134 Betting Odds

You'd better be tough if you call the man who beats you in MMA a coward, but that’s what Anderson Silva did five years ago when he lost to Yushin Okami.

It was a pre-UFC fight for each man and Silva took a disqualification loss for a questionable illegal upkick during the match. Okami said he couldn’t continue and got the victory. Silva called it a ‘cowardly way to win.’


Bellator 48 Sandro vs Curran Odds

Marlon Sandro looks to claim Bellator’s featherweight title against fast-rising Pat Curran Saturday in Bellator 48.

A star in Japan recently in the Sengoku Raiden Championships and in the Shooto Brazil series before that, Sandro is making waves in the USA with Bellator. He is 19-2 with his only coming against heralded stars Michihiro Omigawa and Hatsu Hioki.

UFC 133 Betting Preview

Can Tito Ortiz beat the odds and shock the MMA world again? He’ll get his chance this Saturday night against Rashad Evans at UFC 133.

Former UFC Light Heavyweight Ortiz steps into the Octagon on short notice as a replacement for the injured Phil Davis only five weeks after his shocking upset over highly ranked prospect Ryan Bader at UFC 132. Dana White has stated that a win will vault Ortiz back into the top three in the division, and Rashad Evans might be the perfect opponent for him to do it.


Strikeforce: Fedor vs Henderson Odds

Size matters and MMA bettors are figuring that out as they study the latest Strikeforce odds on the headlining event - Dan Henderson vs Fedor Emelianenko.
