Unfortunately for gamblers, there weren’t any major upsets at this weekend’s UFC 111 event. Thankfully, they don’t have to wait too long to catch their next fix, as Wednesday’s “UFC Fight Night 21” event is just around the corner.

The Spike TV broadcast will be headlined by a lightweight matchup between former two-time UFC top contender Kenny Florian and Japanese sensation Takanori Gomi.

Gomi owns an impressive 31-5 record, but has struggled to find consistency since PrideFC’s demise. His exciting style and success made him a fan-favorite overseas, with his most impressive performance coming in a magical scrap against former Shooto teammate Hayato “Mach” Sakurai at Pride Shockwave 2005.

Florian looked sensational in his last outing, where he submitted an always-game Clay Guida in the 2ndRound of their UFC 107 contest. The win bumped his record to an impressive 12-4, with all but one of his W’s ending before the final bell.

Here are the latest betting odds for the fights inside the Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte, North Carolina:

Yushin Okami -550
Lucio Linhares +375

Gleison Tibau -240
Caol Uno +190

Ross Pearson -200
Dennis Siver +160
