Matt Hughes -206

BJ Penn +186

*Amazingly this fight opened at -105 each way and the public has bet Hughes all the way up to a 2-1 favorite. Evidently not many people saw Penn dominate Hughes in the first fight. IMO this is the closest matched Main Event the UFC has had in years.

Mike Swick -133

David Loiseau +123

*Loiseau opened up at +140 and has gone all the way down to +110. This number keeps moving and is another very close fight. These are two of the top young fighters in the UFC. Loiseau has trained for this fight in San Diego with Dean Lister so we may see a little bit more of a ground game from "The Crow."

Rashad Evans -197

Jason Lambert +182

*Evans opened up at +220 and this fight has moved both ways. Evans will look to take this fight down and GNP his way to a victory. Lambert most control the pace of this fight to draw Evans in to a slugfest ala Brad Imes.

Jens Pulver -672

Joe Lauzon +612

*Pulver opened up at -600 and has been bet hard. Lauzon is a hand picked opponent for the former Lightweight champions return fight but Pulver has been victim to flash knockouts from huge underdogs in the past. Anyone remember Duane "Bang" Ludwig being a 10-1 underdog years ago against Jens?

Melvin Guillard -154

Gabe Reudiger +144

*Guillard opened up at -145 and has made it as high as -165. Reudiger is a tough kid but is he tough enough to domintae Guillard? Guillard has left himself open to chokes in the past so Reudiger may have an opening there.

Roger Huerta -575

Jason Dent +525

*Huerta was supposed to make his UFC debut earlier this summer but an injury prevented that. and he has come in to this fight as a huge favorite. Dent is a tough guy but he has fought a large amount of his fights at 145 lbs. Huerta is the talk of the new 155lbs. fighters in the UFC but the question remains whether or not he came back to soon from injury.

Jorge Gurgel -620

Danny Abbadi +560

*Jorge Gurgel made his debut at 155 lbs. in June and fought Mark Hominick to a very close decision. This may be considered a gift fight for Gurgel by some but how will Abbadi respond to fighting in the proper weight class instead of giving up weight like he did the entire Ultimate Fighter show.

Tyson Griffin -586

David Lee +526

*Griffin is one of the top young fighters in the world and many have been anticipating his UFC debut. Griffin opened at -600 so this number has stayed in the ballpark of the opening number.

these are the picks that I would make if I had to bet each fight: BJ Swick Evans Lauzon Melvin G Dent Gurgel (it's insanity to take -620 in MMA, but Abbadi is just that bad) Lee
