Strikeforce light heavyweight Gegard Mousasi

With the light heavyweight drama in the UFC hoarding all of this week’s MMA headlines, it’s understandable some fans may have forgotten about Saturday’s 205-pound title tilt at “Dream: Grand Prix Final” over in Japan.

Dream champion Gegard Mousasi puts his strap on the line against Hiroshi Izumi in the card’s featured attraction. Mousasi enters the Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo a whopping 14-to-1 favorite to retain his crown.

Izumi checks in as a 7-to-1 long shot to dethrone the Armenian.

Gambling 101:

Bet $1,400 on Mousasi and he wins, you win $100

Bet $100 on Izumi and he wins, you win $700

The show will not be televised live in North America, so you’ll be making the bets blind if you’re not over in the Orient.

Here are the available wagering lines for Saturday’s event (Courtesy of BetUS):

Hideo Tokoro -105
Masakazu Imanari -125

Tatsuya Mizuno +375
Trevor Prangley -550

Drew Fickett +250
Tatsuya Kawajiri -350

Eiji Ishikawa +325
Marius Zaromskis -450

Hiroyuki Takaya +130
Kazuyuki Miyata -160

Gegard Mousasi -1400
Hiroshi Izumi +700
