UFC 104 Bet Pick: Champ Lyoto Machida vs. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua

Machida has shown that he is real deal and not just some Karate defensive specialist. In his seven UFC fights Machida has hardly even taken any damage from top notch opponents . Shogun lost to Forrest Griffin in his UFC debut but was recovering from major knee surgery and looked gassed in the decision loss. Knockouts over legends Chuck Liddell and Mark Coleman may make Shogun a more marketable fight but Machida is in his prime.
TAKE Machida -450. DSI sportsbook has Machida at -405 odds as of October 19.

UFC 104 Bet Odds: Yushin Okami vs. Chael Sonnen

Yushin Okami -250
Chael Sonnen +185

TAKE Yushin Okami -250. Okami is a big 185 fighter on a 3 fight winning streak and 23-4 overall. Sonnen has a ton of MMA fight experience 23-10-1 fighting just about for every major MMA promotion. Like Okami by submission as a decent 2-1 odds. DSI Sportsbook has Okami at -225.
