Jonathan Brookins UFC

Although the finalists for “The Ultimate Fighter 12” were revealed less than 48 hours ago, it hasn’t stopped the Gambling Gods from dropping their two cents on the matter.

Speaking of pennies, it will cost betters quite a few pretty ones to earn significant cash on Jonathan Brookins. The powers that be have pegged the submission specialist an early 2.5-to-1 favorite to capture the six-figure UFC contract.

Michael Johnson wasn’t nearly as dominant in his semifinal split decision win over Nam Phan. The wrestler enters the biggest fight of his life at +190.

Both 155-pounders are representing Team Georges St-Pierre. Phan was Josh Koscheck’s last hope of sniffing the finals.

“The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale” takes place Saturday inside The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Spike TV will broadcast the event beginning at 9PM ET/PT.
