UFC 129 Betting Update: Welterweight Action on Spike TV

May 30, 2011 UFC

The UFC 129 betting action will feature not one, but two Main Events

The headline event that everyone’s tuning into see and throw money on will feature one of the sports all time greats: Georges St Pierre (GSP).  St Pierre is the #1 or #2 rated pound for pound fighter in the planet according to every MMA publication in the world.  He held the welterweight title since 2007 and it seems as though he’ll retire with the thing as well. Jake Shields will be the latest contender to try and take away the title and it should be a very good fight.

The other co-Main Event will feature the newly appointed UFC Featherweight Champion of the World Jose Aldo versus Mark Hominick in what should be the Fight of the Night.

The only thing is, if fans want to catch either fight they’ve got to shell out for pay-per-view package or go to a bar or friend’s house that’s paid for the broadcast rights to the UFC 129 odds event.

But don’t worry; even if you pass on both of aforementioned options, you can still two great fights on the UFC 129 betting lineup of Spike TV.

On April 30th when the action goes down in Toronto fans with basic cable packages can watch some fantastic featherweight action when the Nate Diaz and Rory MacDonald go head to head in the Octagon, followed by Sean Pierson and Brian Foster.

These two prelim matchups are good enough to make the Main Card at most UFC Main Events and should be plenty entertaining.

If you’re looking to put some money on the UFC 129 odds these are also very tempting matchups.

Diaz (13-6) has lost 4 of his past 7 matches –all against mediocre competition.  McDonald is young fighter, just 21 years old, who started his career a perfect 10-0 before losing his last match to Carlos Condit by TKO.  The loss will most likely be a good lesson for the young Canadian and he should make quick work of Diaz in this UFC 129 betting matchup.

Pierson is another Canadian who will no doubt have the crowd on his side in Toronto and that will no doubt be a boost.  But with just one UFC bout on his résumé, he doesn’t have near the experience of Foster whose won his last two matches and should get the better of the Pierson in this matchup as well.
