UFC 115 Betting is a Heavyweight Delight

December 2, 2010 UFC

The UFC 115 betting main event may be headlined by a pair of aging light heavyweights but the real action for fans looking to wager on the UFC 115 odds in the heavyweight division.

The Main Card for the upcoming UFC 115 betting action includes two top-flight heavyweight bouts that should prove to be highlight of the MMA betting.

On June 12th the General Motors Palace in Vancouver Canada will packed to capacity for the UFC 115 odds action.  And while many of the fans in the Palace will be there to get one last glimpse of UFC betting legend Chuck Liddell in person, the interesting UFC 115 betting action will focus on two of the other Main Card events.

In one clash of the heavyweights in the UFC 115 betting American Patrick Barry will go head to head with Croatian Mirko Filipovic.  Barry is a mountain of a man with a 25-6 career MMA betting record.  He’s hardly a newcomer to the scene and is skilled martial artist.  He’s coming off a very impressive win at the UFC 104 event which likely saved his career and booked him this UFC 115 betting gig. 

Filipovic is also no spring chicken and at age 35 has an MMA betting record of 26-7.  His kickboxing style should matchup very well with Barry in the UFC 115 betting action.  His record over his last 6 bouts is 4-1-1 and that includes wins in top UFC betting events.

The other heavyweight battle in the UFC 115 betting action features another American, Ben Rothwell, and Dutchman Gilbert Yvel.  Rothwell is a former Olympic boxer and will obviously favor a fight on his fight in this UFC 115 matchup.  If he can make this bout a striking contest it will be to his advantage.  He’s a seasoned fighter at age 28 with a career record of 30-7 in MMA betting contests. 

If Rothwell is ‘seasoned’ than I don’t know what you’d call Yvel, who at age 33 has a career MMA betting record of 36-14.  He’s obviously past his prime and should be little more than a punching bag for Rothwell when they meet in the UFC 115 betting action.  Although, he is a skilled martial artist and is 9-2 over his past 11 fights, so there might be a bit more action in this fight than you would expect.
