In addition to witnessing the biggest brawl in MMA history, fans also saw two major upsets go down at “Strikeforce: Nashville” this past Saturday. The early betting odds have just been released for “UFC 113: Machida vs. Shogun II,” giving gamblers ample time to study-up for the May 8th event.
The card will take place inside the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada and be headlined by a light heavyweight rematch between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and champion Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida.
The pair initially met in a hard-fought battle at UFC 104 this past October. Although the champ was awarded a 48-47 score from all three judges sitting Octagon-side, most, if not all, of the fans inside Staples Center in Los Angeles believed Machida got away with highway robbery.
The verdict was so questionable, it prompted UFC president Dana White to schedule an immediate mulligan.
Here are the early betting lines for the pay-per-view broadcast:
A BELCHER -120
P COTE -110
M MITRIONE -110
K SLICE -120
J STEPHENS +165
S STOUT -210
P DALEY +220
J KOSCHECK -300
M RUA +160
L MACHIDA -200
