UFC Strikeforce Dan Henderson

If you ask the Gambling Gods, Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante’s reign as Strikeforce light heavyweight king will be short-lived. The Brazilian puts his title on the line against Dan Henderson on March 5th.

The powers that be have pegged Feijao nearly a 2-to-1 underdog against the MMA legend. Hendo, on the other hand, will enter the hexagon as a -220 odds-on favorite.

Feijao shouldn’t feel too badly about his long shot status. Henderson was a 4.5-to-1 favorite when he lost to then-middleweight champion Jake Shields at “Strikeforce: Nashville” in April 2010.

The Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio will host the championship affair.

Here are the available wagering lines for “Feijao vs. Henderson” (Courtesy of Bodog):

Marloes Coenen -180
Miesha Tate +150

Dan Henderson -220
Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante +180
