After witnessing seven out of 12 favorites take a tumble at UFC 144, gamblers have been antsy for another shot at receiving some long shot lovin’. Thankfully, they won’t have to wait long because the Octagon action resumes this Saturday (Friday in North America) with a whole new set of investment options.
Welterweight Martin Kampmann (Pictured) enters the main event as a slight +110 underdog against Thiago Alves. “The Pitbull,” meanwhile, checks in just ahead as a -140 odds-on favorite.
In addition, the card showcases the opening round of the UFC’s four-man flyweight tournament. Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson are heavy favorites to dispose of their respective opponents and collide for the 125-pound crown later this year.
