UFC Odds: Struve vs. McCorkle

Heavyweight giant Stefan Struve (23-4-0) has been getting all the motivation he needs for his upcoming UFC 124 fight against undefeated Sean McCorkle (10-0-0). Despite MMA betting lines listing McCorkle as an underdog, he’s been running his mouth and posting insulting comments about Struve on his Twitter account.

McCorkle (+140 at 5Dimes) has no shortage of confidence when talking about his upcoming UFC 124 fight. His trash talk has been more like a one-liner stand-up comedy routine than fight hype;

“Sometimes I wonder if life as a 2nd tier UFC heavyweight is really all it’s cracked up to be. That’s when I call Stefan Struve and ask him.”

“I’ve always claimed to be the best looking man over 6-6 in the world. And Stefan Struve is just further proof of that,”

McCorkle has managed to get under Struve’s skin with his posts, prompting a serious response. Struve will enter the Octagon as a slight -167 favorite according to MMA betting lines Sports Interaction.

“The crap he’s been saying about me on the Internet, you don’t say that about other professional fighters. It’s going to be a disaster for him,” said Struve.

One of these fighters will provide a betting edge from all this hype. Will it be with Struve who will be more motivated than ever, or will the betting edge be on McCorkle for getting his opponent off his focus?
