“UFC 99: The Comeback” betting odds

UFC 99: THE COMEBACK takes place this coming Saturday, June 13, at Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany. Headlining the card will be former UFC Middleweight Champion Rich Franklin taking on former Pride Middleweight Champion Wanderlei Silva.

According to the betting odds at BetUS.com Franklin is considered the favorite. It will be Silva’s aggressive “axe-murderer-style” striking against the technical striking and footwork of Franklin. Franklin will have the size and reach advantage and with the way Silva has looked recently, it is difficult to imagine how he could win the fight. It is probably best to leave this one alone.

Rich Franklin -155 vs. Wanderlei Silva +115
Spencer Fisher -225 vs. Caol Uno +175
Marcus Davis -225 vs. Dan Hardy +175
Mike Swick -225 vs. Ben Saunders +175
Terry Etim -350 vs. Justin Buchholz +225
Paul Taylor -500 vs. Peter Sobotta +300
Denis Stojnic -110 vs. Stefan Struve -130
Paul Kelly -550 vs. Rolando Delgado +325
Mirko Filipovic -450 vs. Mostapha Al Turk +275

According to the report, current middleweight kingpin Anderson “The Spider” Silva has been offered a spot on the card. His potential opponent would be Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell, creating another blockbuster main event for the promotion.

If Anderson Silva had his way he would have been on the card this past weekend.  The champion reportedly asked Dana White to fight on the UFC 91 card following his bout with Patrick Cote. “He’s flipping out,” said White. “He wants to fight again, like on Nov. 15. He’s upset about his performance and he wants to fight again immediately.”
