BetUS.com, an official sponsor of PRO MMA (promma.info) has the fight lines on all the fights. If you want to go ahead and try your luck and place a bet, feel free, or play it safe, and wait until we release our official “PRO MMA staff picks” here in a day or two.
Here is what we are looking at for UFC 101:
BJ Penn -230 vs. Kenny Florian +180
Anderson Silva -350 vs. Forrest Griffin +250
Kendall Grove +135 vs. Ricardo Almeida -165
Josh Neer -220 vs. Kurt Pellegrino +175
Amir Sadollah -130 vs. Johny Hendricks Ev
Thales Leites -350 vs. Alessio Sakara +250
Shane Nelson +130 vs. Aaron Riley -160
Tamdan McCrory -200 vs. John Howard +160
Matthew Riddle -165 vs. Dan Cramer +135
Jesse Lennox +165 vs. Danillo Villefort -210
Both Kenny Florian and Forrest Griffin have the tools necessary to pull off the upset. My personal pick for the main event is Florian anyway. With five whole rounds to get the job done, I think he will finish B.J.
Now, I honestly think Anderson Silva will most likely beat Forrest Griffin. However, you just can not rule out Griffin. You just never can tell. With Griffin sitting at +250, he is a worthwhile pick to make if you have the money to spare.
