UFC Shane Carwin

“The Ultimate Fighter 16” might not be moving the needle for the UFC like the reality show’s first few editions, but at least there is a genuine beef brewing between this season’s opposing coaches that has made things a tad more interesting.

Speaking of making things more interesting, the Gambling Gods have released the early betting lines for Shane Carwin (Pictured) and Roy Nelson’s impending shootout.

Despite riding the pine since June 2011 due to back surgery, Carwin is pegged as nearly a 2-to-1 odds-on favorite to beat Nelson.

“Big Country,” meanwhile, checks in just behind as a +150 underdog.

The heavyweights will collide December 15th inside The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Shane Carwin -180
