UFC 117 Betting Preview: Card Loaded With Talent

December 2, 2010 UFC

Fans looking to take part in the UFC 117 betting action will have plateful of great MMA betting bouts to choose from.

After a relatively light UFC betting menu during the UFC 116 betting event the UFC 117 looks like a veritable smorgasbord of fighting as the Main Card is loaded with top fighters and intriguing matchups.

The UFC 117 odds makers have to love the Main Event featuring the middleweight champion of the world Anderson Silva taking on Chael Sonnen for the title.  Silva, despite a very ugly performance in his last UFC betting event, is still at the top of his game and will enter the UFC 117 betting match as the best pound for pound fighter in the world.

But the Main Even is hardly the only interesting MMA betting match in the UFC 117 odds competition.  Welterweights John Fitch and Thiago Alves will also go head to head in the UFC 117 betting action, a bout that could almost pass for a UFC Main Event at most UFC betting competitions.  Fitch remains one of the top contenders in the world in the welterweight class and with a convincing win could get another shot at the belt.

In the lightweight class Clay Guida and Rafeal dos Anjos will match up in the UFC 117 betting competition.  This is the sleeper of the Main Card bouts but could turn out to be one of the best matchups.  In another great welterweight matchup Matt Hughes and Ricardo Almeida will battle in the UFC 117 betting competition in what could be a stepping stone for both of the these fighters to get a shot at the title.

Wrapping up the UFC 117 Main Card events is the battle of the heavyweights.  American Roy Nelson will battle with Brazilian Junior Dos Santos in a match that could change the UFC betting futures of both men.  UFC president Dana White has already said that the winner of this UFC 117 betting matchup will take on heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in title fight.

With plenty of great fights on the Main Card sports betting fans can be forgiven for overlooking the preliminary fights which also loaded with top fighters and intriguing MMA betting matchups.
