UFC Poster 118

If Frankie Edgar didn’t feel disrespected before, then the UFC lightweight champ surely has the right to feel that way now. The Gambling Gods have spoken and they believe the Jersey boy is one-and-done as the 155-pound Octagon king.

UFC 118 takes place August 28th inside the TD Garden in Beantown, home of the loathed Boston Celtics.

Despite entering their UFC 112 contest a 5-to-1 underdog, Edgar used his superior speed and quickness to upset Penn for his strap in Abu Dhabi. Edgar will only be a 2.5-to-1 ‘dog in his mulligan against the Hawaiian.

Speaking of heavy favorites, it’s no surprise the early money is on Randy Couture to successfully ruin James Toney’s mixed martial arts debut. For those that wanted to lay dough on Couture, it will cost you, because the UFC Hall of Famer is a 7-to-1 favorite to rain on Toney’s parade.

Puncher’s chance … anyone???
