UFC Poster 126 Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort

Super Bowl Sunday typically signifies Las Vegas’ busiest workday every year. However, thanks to “UFC 126: Silva vs. Belfort,” gambleholics will have the sports books buzzing all weekend long this year thanks to their blockbuster shindig. 

The star-studded card features a middleweight title scrap between champion Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort. The powers that be have pegged “The Spider” nearly a 2.5-to-1 favorite to leave the Mandalay Bay Event Center with the bling-bling belt in tow.

Belfort enters the biggest fight of his accomplished career at +190.

Although Ryan Bader dons a perfect 12-0 resume, he’ll enter the Octagon a significant 3-to-1 underdog against Jon Jones. Bader shouldn’t feel too badly about his longshot status, as there aren’t many light heavyweights “Bones” wouldn’t be favored against.

Former 185-pound champ Rich Franklin is almost a 2-to-1 favorite against Forrest Griffin in the night’s co-main event.
