UFC 112 Betting on Saturday

December 2, 2010 UFC

UFC 112 betting on Saturday night features a great card of action including Anderson Silva against Demian Maia.

Silva is considered one of the best fighters in the UFC and he is a -650 favorite in UFC 112 odds in this bout against Maia.

UFC 112 betting also includes another title fight as BJ Penn battles Frankie Edgar. Penn is a -750 favorite in UFC 112 odds. Those are the two marquee fights but not the end of the action as another nine fights are on the card.  The main card from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates has the two title bouts in addition to Matt Hughes against Renzo Gracie, Terry Etim vs. Rafael dos Anjos and Kendall Grove vs. Mark Munoz.

Silva is the big name in UFC 112 betting.  He is a future Hall of Famer and is not expected to have much difficulty against Maia.  The problem for Maia is that unless he gets this bout to the mat he is likely to get destroyed.  Silva is the best striker in the UFC and Maia may not be able to survive the first round.

Penn is not expected to have much difficulty with Edgar in the other feature bout in UFC 112 betting.  Penn is a very good striker and if this fight stays upright then Penn is likely to win.  If the fight goes to the ground then Penn also wins.  Edgar has some talent and this fight could at least get out of the first round.

Matt Hughes has been in high profile fights before and although he is not the headliner in UFC 112, he should put on a good show against Renzo Gracie.  Hughes has beaten many of the top fighters in the game in his career.  Neither of these two fighters is at the top of their game anymore but they are still talented and should be fun to watch. Hughes is a -500 favorite in UFC 112 betting odds.

The other two bouts on the main card have competitive UFC 112 betting odds.  Terry Etim is a -165 favorite against Rafael Dos Anjos.  Etim has won four straight and is a submission expert.  He should also have the striking edge against Dos Anjos. Mark Munoz is a -150 favorite in the other bout on the main card against Kendall Grove.

The preliminary card has Jon Madsen against Mostapha Al Turk, Paul Kelly vs. Matt Veach, Alexander Gustafsson vs. Phil Davis, Paul Taylor vs. John Gunderson, Nick Osipczak vs. Rick Story and DaMarques Johnson vs. Brad Blackburn.
