UFC Macao: Franklin vs. Le Odds

UFC betting action is back this weekend with a free UFC on Fuel TV 6 fight card from China that features two of the most popular fighters in the sport.

 

Moneyline action is already available on four main-card fights, and options for the undercard will be posted over the next few days.

Cung Lee will get to fight in front of Chinese fans for the first time as a UFC fighter, but will have a big challenge in front of him when he steps into the Octagon against Rich Franklin. Lee is currently handicapped as a 5Dimes UFC odds +255 underdog to win, while “Ace” comes with a -310 price in what will likely be one of the last fights of his illustrious career.

Franklin should have little difficulty against Lee, but the prop action at 5Dimes offers MMA betting fans a few interesting options. Franklin winning inside the distance is coming at an affordable price of -180, while a decision win will pay a generous +400.

Thiago Silva will be looking to let Bulgarian prospect Stanislav Nedkov know that he’s not ready for the upper-echelon of the Light Heavyweight division. As a -360 favorite at 5Dimes, the Silva option looks too expensive when one looks at how he has performed over the last couple of years.

Nedkov is undefeated in 12 fights, while Silva has gone 1-3-1 over his last five. We like the upset +300 UFC odds option on Nedkov, who will hold an advantage if the fight goes to the ground and could have the technique to give Silva trouble in a stand-up fight.

Mac Danzig should be able to out-work Takanori Gomi for either a decision or a submission victory. If he can do that he will pay out at a 5Dimes -255 price, while Gomi has some value as the +215 underdog in front of a friendly crowd.
