Changes in 2010 UFC Odds

December 2, 2010 UFC

UFC odds for UFC 111 will no longer include Martin Kampmann as he had to pull out of his bout with Ben Saunders.

UFC 111 is scheduled for March while the next UFC betting even will be UFC 110 on Saturday, February 20th.

UFC odds will now have Ben Saunders facing Jake Ellenberger at UFC 111 in Newark, New Jersey.   Saunders would have been an underdog in UFC betting against Kampmann and he could still be an underdog against Ellenberger.  Kampmann is ranked #10 in the UFC rankings while Ellenberger is #17.  Saunders is ranked below those two at #19 in the welterweight division.

There have been some other changes in UFC odds.  Mark Coleman, who lost to Randy Couture in UFC 109 was dropped by the UFC. He was not the only one released as Tim Hague and Phillipe Nover were also dropped. Hague lost in UFC odds against Chris Tuscherer at UFC 109.  It was the second straight loss for Hague in UFC betting and a very unpopular one as many in the crowd thought he won. Nover has done nothing in the UFC lately, losing to Efrain Escudero, Kyle Bradley, to Rob Emerson in UFC 109.

The next event in UFC odds is UFC 110 which will feature Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Cain Velasquez.  UFC 110 will be held on Sunday, February 20th from Sydney, Australia. It will be the first ever UFC event in Australia. There will be the first ever all-Australian bout in UFC odds at this event as Elvis Sinosic and Chris Hasemann do battle. Tickets for the event were sold out on the first day, making it the second fastest sell out in the history of the UFC.

The main card in UFC odds for UFC 110 in addition to Nogueira vs. Velasquez has Wanderlei Silva facing Michael Bisping, George Sotiropoulos vs. Joe Stevenson, Keith Jardine vs. Ryan Bader and Mirko Filipovic vs. Ben Rothwell. The preliminary card in UFC betting in additioin to Sinosic vs. Hasemann has Stephan Bonnar vs. Krzysztof Soszynski, Brian Foster vs. Chris Lytler, C.B. Dollaway vs. Goran Reljic and Igor Pokrajac vs. James Te-Huna.  UFC 110 is going to be a very popular event in Australia and it should still be popular in the United States since they are starting it early in Australia so it takes place in prime time in the U.S.
