UFC betting fans will have one of the top bouts of the 2009 UFC ultimate fighting season and a strong international lineup on the under card. UFC betting handicappers will look at that main event between welterweight Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez, making his lightweight debut and former world title contender Joe “Daddy” Stevenson.
Stevenson has a UFC ultimate fighting record of 34-9 but is coming off a November 15 loss to Kenny Florian. The bout ended at the 4 minute 3 second mark of the first round by way of a submission choke. “Daddy” has lost two of his last three UFC betting odds appearances.
The 26 year old from Torrance, CA is considered to have UFC ultimate fighting strengths at takedowns and submissions. Sanchez will enter this UFC betting odds event with a strong 21-2 record against the UFC betting odds. Sanchez is known in UFC betting odds circles for his excellent grappling skills.
Sanchez has beaten the UFC betting odds in his last two appearances. His last UFC betting win was back on June 21 of 2008 when he defeated Luigi Fioravanti at the 4 minute 7 second mark of the third round by a technical knock out. Sanchez has split his last four UFC betting appearances.
Another attractive UFC betting odds matchup on the card will be Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy against Rory Markham. Hardy has a UFC betting record of 20-6-1 and won his last appearance on October 18 over Akihiro Gono in a split decision. Hardy is best known for his striking, resilience, and speed.
Markham will enter the match with a record of 16-4. His last UFC betting appearance was July 19 and was a knock out victory over Brodie Farber. This will be a matchup of contrasts as Markham is known as a power fighter rather than Hardy, who relies on speed.
