The anticipation for the UFC’s long-awaited return to Brazil couldn’t be any higher. With the hoopla reaching the mass hysteria levels, there’s only one thing that could possibly make Saturday’s “UFC 134: Silva vs. Okami” fiesta just a tad bit more exciting.
With just two days remaining until showtime, the Gambling Gods have released the wagering odds for the event’s main bouts. Coincidentally, every Brazilian outside of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira is expected to receive some home cooking.
American Brendan Schaub (Pictured) is more than a 2-to-1 favorite to hand Big Nog his second consecutive defeat.
Speaking of heavy favorites, middleweight king Anderson Silva is a whopping 5-to-1 odds-on favorite to retain his crown against Yushin Okami in the night’s featured attraction.
FYI – Seven out of 12 underdogs pulled through at “UFC on Versus 5.” #JustSayin
