The ink has barely dried from signing their new fight contracts, yet that hasn’t stopped the Gambling Gods from dropping their two cents on UFC 146‘s new featured attraction.
According to the powers that be, now that Alistair Overeem is out of the picture and Frank Mir has emerged into the spotlight, Junior dos Santos (Pictured) will have a much easier night come May 26th.
“Cigano” was pegged as a slight -165 odds-on favorite to beat Overeem. Dos Santos is now a whopping 5.5-to-1 favorite to retain his crown against Mir.
Mir, on the other hand, checks in as a significant 3.5-to-1 long shot to spoil the Brazilian’s first title defense.
UFC 146 takes place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
