The one thing that keeps sports betting fans coming back for MMA betting action is the unpredictability of the action and the upcoming UFC 117 betting event should be no different. So far this year the UFC Main Events have been outstanding in terms of the level of competition and the UFC odds opportunities. The UFC 117 Betting action should be just as exciting as all the other Main Events so far in 2010 and if you love MMA odds action you simply can’t afford to miss this.
The headlining bout for the UFC 117 action is obviously the Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen bout. This Main Event has been hyped up as much as any other UFC betting matchup and fans are dying to see what happens when Silva gets back into the Octagon.
As most UFC betting fans know, this will be the first time that Silva will be stepping into the Octagon to defend his title after one of the most bizarre MMA betting matches in history. Silva, the top pound for pound fighter in sports betting and arguably one of the most talented MMA fighters in history perplexed the sports betting public in his last match by failing to engage a much lesser ranked opponent.
Not only did Silva fail to engage his opponent but he ran from him in the Octagon for most of the match and hurling insults and acting crazy. He won the match by decision quite easily after landing some early shots but he impressed no one and infuriated many UFC betting fans.
And to say that UFC president Dana White was furious would be a major understatement. That’s why there’s so much for this UFC 117 betting match featuring the champ and an obviously inferior opponent in Sonnen.
All things being equal, Silva should make mince-meat of Sonnen and on fighting skills alone the UFC 117 betting odds for this fight should provoke little interest. But there are many sports betting fans that are predicting all kinds of wild results including an outcome in which Silva acts crazy again in the Octagon to earn a dismissal from White (which he already declared would happen) in order to get out of his UFC contract.
But nobody knows for sure what will go down in the UFC 117 betting action and that’s exactly what makes it all so interesting.
