UFC 119 Betting Preview: Prelim Card Is Loaded With Talent

December 2, 2010 UFC

It wasn’t that long ago that Frank Mir was on top of the MMA universe but a lot has happened since held the UFC heavyweight title several months ago and he’s going to need big win in the UFC 119 betting action if he’s going to get another shot at reclaiming the title that used to be his.

There are always the big names and super star fighters that populate the Main Card at the UFC events but often times it’s the preliminary fights that are the most entertaining at the MMA competitions and that just might be the case with the UFC 119 betting action as well.

The Main Card boasts former champions and legends of the sport like Frank Mir, Matt Serra, San Sherk and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.  And no doubt there will be some great fight action when these men step into the Octagon.  But don’t forget to check out the Preliminary Card UFC 119 odds as there just might be something there that catches your eye.

Take for example the fight between heavyweights Matt Mitrione and Joey Beltran.  Mitrione is one a couple rising stars in the heavyweight class and he could be a great bet in the UFC 119 betting action.  Although he’s fought in just 2 UFC events (2-0) he’s a terrific athlete with good training and a win over Beltran would likely jump him up to the Main Card status for his next event.  This bout will also be broadcast on Spike TV as will the UFC 119 betting match between C.B. Dollaway and Joe Doerksen.

Another Preliminary Card bout to check out is the heavyweight bout featuring Mark Hunt and Sean McCorkle.  Hunt, a New Zealander has been a fascination among MMA enthusiasts for a long time.  He’s kick boxer by trade who dabbles MMA and just about any other type of fighting, not always with great success. 

But he’s got some huge wins on his resume over the likes of Cro Cop and Wanderlei Silva in the PRIDE fighting series.  This will be his first UFC fight and unfortunately it’s probably come too late in his career to lead to a big impact in this league but during the UFC 119 odds action you can be sure that there will be plenty of attention paid to this fight.  Hunt has lost his last five MMA matches but expect him to make the most of his UFC debut.  Either way you can always expect an entertaining fight when he enters the ring.
