Hall of Fame Matchup Highlights UFC 109 Betting

December 2, 2010 UFC

UFC 109 betting on Saturday, February 6th features a Hall of Fame matchup as Randy Couture faces Mark Coleman.

Couture is heavily favored in UFC odds in this headliner between two UFC Hall of Fame fighters.

UFC 109 betting has 11 bouts on the card including this big one between Couture and Coleman.  Couture is the only five-time champ in UFC history. He has competed in more title bouts (15) than any other fighter in history.  He is also the oldest fighter in the UFC at 46 years old.

Couture and Coleman were supposed to meet 12 years ago in UFC 17 but Couture had to pull out of that bout due to injury. There is not much left for Couture to do in UFC odds history but he still wants another title shot. Coleman probably needs this bout more if he wants to do anything in the future in the sport. "Randy Couture needs this win because he’s a fierce competitor and always likes to win," UFC President Dana White said, "But as far as livelihood and career, Mark Coleman needs this win a lot more than Randy Couture does."

Couture is a very big favorite in UFC 109 betting. In fact, rarely do you see a fighter laying 5-1 in UFC odds but that will be the case with Couture in this bout against Coleman. There are just not a lot of people giving Coleman much of a chance in UFC 109 betting. Coleman was a great fighter but that was a long time ago.

The main card in UFC 109 betting from Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, February 6th has four other bouts in addition to Couture-Coleman. It is Chael Sonnen vs. Nate Marquardt, Paulo Thiago vs. Mike Swick, Demian Maia vs. Dan Miller and Matt Serra vs. Frank Trigg in UFC odds.  Marquardt is heavily favored in his bout against Sonnen while Maia is a heavy favorite against Miller.

The preliminary card has six bouts in UFC 109 betting, two of which will be televised on Spike TV. Those two bouts in UFC 109 betting are Mac Danzig vs. Justin Buchholz and Melvin Guillard vs. Ronnys Torres. The four non-televised bouts in UFC 109 betting are Phillipe Nover vs. Rob Emerson, Brian Stann vs. Phil Davis, Tim Hague vs. Chris Tuchscherer and Rolles Gracie vs. Mostapha Al Turk.
