UFC Fabricio Werdum

After 11 months of inactivity, UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum (pictured) finally defends his throne for the first time Saturday when he meets Stipe Miocic at UFC 198.

According to the Gambling Gods, Werdum is expected to enjoy his reign atop the 265-pound division a while longer. Werdum is a slight -165 odds-on favorite to snap Miocic’s two-fight winning streak. Miocic, meanwhile, checks in closely behind as a +135 underdog.

The biggest longshot on the card is Leslie Smith at 8-1. The sacrificial lamb is facing Invicta FC featherweight champ Cris “Cyborg” Justino in a 140-pound catchweight contest that shouldn’t last too long. Justino is a whopping 18-1 favorite to wax Smith.
