There’s already plenty of hoopla surrounding the light heavyweight scrap between former champs Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans, but for you (us) fight fans that are always looking to “make things a little more exciting,” the early betting lines for UFC 114 have just been released!
Rampage holds an impressive 30-7 professional record, however hasn’t fought since taking an uneventful unanimous decision over Keith Jardine, Evans’ Jackson Submission Fighting teammate, at UFC 96 last March.
Evans bounced back nicely from his only professional loss when he escaped with a unanimous decision victory over Thiago Silva at UFC 108. Although the wrestler dominated much of the matchup, Evans was nearly knocked out in the fight’s closing seconds by a desperate Silva.
The May 29th event takes place inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Here are the current betting odds for the card from SportsBetting.com:
Quinton Jackson (-105) vs. Rashad Evans (-125)
Diego Sanchez (-235) vs. John Hathaway (+185)
Amir Sadollah (-145) vs. Dong Hyun Kim (+114)
