“UFC 104: Machida vs. Rua” takes place this Saturday night, Oct. 24, 2009, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif. The main card airs live on pay-per-view, and a minimum of two preliminary bouts will air live on Spike TV.
Below we have listed the betting odds courtesy of BetUS.com.
Lyoto Machida -450 vs. Mauricio Rua +325
Cain Velasquez -300 vs. Ben Rothwell +220
Pat Barry -105 vs. Antoni Hardonk -125
Yushin Okami -250 vs. Chael Sonnen +185
Joe Stevenson -220 vs. Spencer Fisher +175
Ryan Bader -500 vs. Eric Schafer +350
Personally, I don’t have much to add to these odds. I could see Spencer Fisher upsetting Joe Stevenson but I would give “Joe Daddy” the advantage for sure. Rothwell has a chance to win, but not a great one. And I don’t see Shogun in any way taking out Machida. Hardonk, because of his MMA and superior grappling experience has the slight advantage over Barry.
