Demetrious Johnson has only been UFC Flyweight champion for three months but he will defend his title this Saturday against Ultimate Fighter 14 winner John Dodson. Currently the price on Johnson defending his title is set at -225 at Bovada while the Dodson upset will pay UFC odds of as much as +185 at 5Dimes.
Dodson is a real threat to pull off the upset mainly because he is the more powerful of the two fighters and should be able to match Johnson in the speed department. He has more ways to win the bout and he only needs one good shot over five rounds to end the fight.

Donald Cerrone has been climbing up the UFC Lightweight rankings and now gets a chance to become the top contender in the division with a win over Anthony Pettis. “Cowboy” Cerrone was initially handicapped as the MMA odds -155 favorite at 5Dimes, but action has driven the price all the way down to underdog odds of -105.
Pettis has been out of action for almost a year but MMA bettors have moved his moneyline from the initial +115 to the current -115 option. He will bring great striking and foot movement - as long as the layoff doesn’t affect his performance.
Glover Teixeira will look to further his name in the Light Heavyweight division with a win over MMA legend Quinton Jackson. He’s currently a heavy MMA odds -320 favorite at 5Dimes while a Jackson upset is worth as much as +260.
Jackson has been less than motivated to fight for the UFC over the last couple of years but he may be interested in leaving on a winning note. If Teixeira decides to trade punches with Rampage the upset option could easily pay out in this fight.
