The UFC 117 betting card is loaded with talented fighters and great matchups. In fact with a Preliminary Card chock full of awesome fighters and great bouts and a Main Card that’s as intriguing as ever in terms of UFC odds matchups it’s hard to know which fights to focus on. Ideally sports betting fans will be able catch every bout and bet on any UFC 117 betting matchup they’re interested in.
But if you’re limited on time or funds and can only focus on a few of the many mind-blowing UFC 117 betting matchups, here’s a couple to consider.
Obviously, you’d have to have brain damage to miss out on the Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen Main Event. On paper this fight may not look all that interesting considering that Silva should clean the Octagon mat with Sonnen. Silva hasn’t lost a UFC odds bout since 2006 and has won his last 12 bouts. Sonnen is a middleweight punching bag and with a 24-10 career MMA record he’s no match for arguably the greatest MMA fighter of the past decade. But what makes this UFC 117 betting matchup so intriguing is the fact that Silva might just throw the fight or at least refuse to fight and walk away from the UFC odds competition once and for all. At least that’s one of many rumors on the online wagering blogosphere so you don’t want to miss this.
Another matchup that could open people’s eyes is the dos Santos vs. Nelson fight. Dos Santos has all the makings of the next big star in the UFC odds fighting but he’ll need a convincing win against Nelson to make a serious case for a shot at the title against heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar.
Also check out the Clay Guida vs. Rafael dos Anjos fight in the UFC 117 betting main card. Dos Anjos is a fighter on the rise and could become a serious contender in the lightweight class. Guida isn’t much of a talent but he’s a fighter and his matches are always entertaining. There should be plenty of blows exchanged in this UFC odds matchup and the veteran Guida should give dos Anjos all he can handle.
