UFC Heavyweight Champ Cain Velasquez

Cain Velasquez has been out of action since mauling Brock Lesnar last October to capture the heavyweight crown. Nonetheless, the champ has been pegged a slight -150 favorite to retain his title against Junior Dos Santos in their hotly-rumored battle at UFC 138.

Dos Santos solidified his top contender moniker with a lopsided victory over Shane Carwin at UFC 131. The Brazilian bumped his record to a dominant 13-1 mark following the win.

Junior checks into his first championship affair as a +120 underdog.

Although the UFC has yet to officially announce the 265-pound title tilt, it’s all but a done deal. The HP Pavilion in San Jose, California is expected to host the November 19th extravaganza.
