Although their highly anticipated middleweight title fight is still months away, things are not looking too good for Chael Sonnen when he meets champ Anderson Silva at UFC 117 on August 7th.
Silva turned the MMA world upside-down when he decided that he would make UFC 112 his very own circus sideshow act. For his third straight title defense, the baddest 185-pounder on the planet appeared more interested in showboating than elbowing.
FYI, Silva was an 8-to-1 favorite in his scrap against Maia, so the Gambling Gods clearly believe Sonnen is a step-up in competition for the planet’s baddest 185-pounder.
Here are the current betting odds for the card from SportsBetting.com:
Thiago Alves -140
Jon Fitch +110
Anderson Silva -500
Chael Sonnen +350
