In their first meeting, Junior Dos Santos KO'd Cain Velasquez in the first round, but in the rematch Velasquez would win a five round decision to regain his UFC heavyweight title. With the rubber match match likely for UFC 166, odds maker have set the current champion Velasquez as the early favorite in the bout:

Round three between UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos will go down in October in Houston, as most know by now. The event will probably be UFC 166, and the current champ has opened as the betting favorite over the former champ. Here's the line (via BestFightOdds):

Cain Velasquez: -210

Junior Dos Santos: +175

For those unfamiliar with how betting in combats sports works, Velasquez is basically a two to one favorite in the bout. A bet of $210.00 dollars on Velasquez would be pay $100.00, whereas a $100.00 bet on Dos Santos would pay $175.00

As he should be fav. He won a convincing UD over JDS last time. While I think JDS wins this next one, I agree with the line.

I am surprised by these odds, would have expected +- 100 at the most.

I don't even know if that is possible I don't know about odds betting but they seem pretty damn evenly matched to me.

CRMartin11 - I think the line should be closer.

Cain shouldn't be a 2:1 favourite.

I think a lot of people are overlooking jds Phone Post

WTF? Did you guys see their last fight? Cain has that riddle solved and JDS will crumple mentally once Cain starts smothering him again. Odds should be worse in my mind. Phone Post
