The last time the UFC was in Japan, Tito Ortiz won a fight with a neck crank. The sport has come a long way. To reintroduce the Japanese market to American MMA, the UFC has brought a title fight to their shores; pitting Frankie Edgar against Benson Henderson is a FOTY candidate. Why not make some cash while we’re enjoying the fights though?

Another weekend, another event! This time the UFC will debut a full card on Fuel TV, and while the fight quality isn’t as high as some events, it’s still free. Below we have some fights that I think we can turn a buck on, complete with comparison betting odds, valid props and my general confidence in the fight itself. You’ll notice several fights missing from the list, which is no error. With fights between newcomers, anything can happen, and I’d recommend avoiding wagers on the fights I haven’t listed.
Having learned from the folly of the previous UFC on Fox, we’re treated to three fights this time out on the main broadcast, as well as a packed Fuel TV undercard. The main event is a long time in the making it seems, as Rashad Evans once again tries to grab a title shot, taking on undefeated Phil Davis. On top of light heavyweight title implications, we’re also treated to a number one contender bout between Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping as well as another solid matchup with Demien Maia facing Chris Weidman to open the Fox curtain.
One of the many shows we’ll be treated to on FX kicks off with a fantastic card, both for fight quality and wager opportunity. Our main event features the return fight of both Melvin Guillard and Jim Miller, as they attempt to put their losses behind them and get back into the title mix. So, check out my comparison betting odds for this fight, my list of valid props, and my new confidence meter that tells you how much wiggle room my lines have.
