UFC Lightweight Anthony Pettis

Welterweight champion Johny Hendricks remains a steady 2-1 odds-on favorite to retain his title against Robbie Lawler tonight in UFC 181‘s featured attraction, so let’s take a closer look at Saturday’s co-main event between lightweight champ Anthony Pettis (pictured) and Gilbert Melendez.

Despite his 16-month layoff due to knee surgery, Pettis is nearly a 3-1 favorite to beat the former Strikeforce king. Melendez, meanwhile, checks in as slightly more than a 2-1 underdog to dethrone the Wheaties cover boy.

Is it just me, or does Melendez have great value here? We shall see…

UFC 181 goes down inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
