UFC Middleweight Chael Sonnen

For the first time in three fights, Chael Sonnen (pictured) will enter the Octagon as an odds-on favorite to get his hand raised. 

Chael P. is pegged as a slight -145 favorite to beat Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC on Fox Sports 1. Shogun, meanwhile, checks in just behind as a +115 underdog.

UFC on Fox Sports 1 takes place August 17 inside TD Garden in Boston.

Chael Sonnen -145
Mauricio “Shogun” Rua +115
