“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
