UFC 113 Bet Pick: Lyoto Machida vs. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua

Machida dominated his opponents with his elusive Karate based style that had him dipping out and striking in for points like a Karate championship. Rua was one of the few MMA fighters to get inside Machida's defense and strike some body shots to him. Many saw Rua winning the first decision but the fight went 5 rounds and it was left in the hands of the judges. Rua is hungry and more importantly in shape and relatively healthy. He cardio will be ready for another 5 round war. His muay thai kicking game plan will be to strike the legs and body of Machida to slow him down. Machida will make it a very technical in and out circling fight again rather than a brawl. Clear strikes for points is Machida's forte for the judges. Shogun will be able to wear down Machida again with his kicks and will finish him this time.

TAKE Shogun +150 Odds

UFC 113 Odds: Paul Daley vs. Josh Koscheck

Paul Daley +207
Josh Koscheck -257

UFC 113 Odds: Jeremy Stephens vs. Sam Stout

Jeremy Stephens +160
Sam Stout -200

UFC 113 Odds: Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson vs. Matt Mitrione

Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson -115
Matt Mitrione -115

UFC 113 Bet Pick: Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson vs. Matt Mitrione

Kimbo an ex bouncer faces "Meathead" and ex NFL player which could turn out to be a brawl that will be pleasing for UFC fans. Kimbo has a very limited ground game and on TUF 10 showed he has some mobility issues with his knee. Meathead will attack that leg with extreme prejudice and will lay and ground and pound on Kimbo like Roy Nelson. If Meathead gets on Kimbo on his back it is all over. The only reason the odds are even is because of the public betting on Kimbo and his famous name an bum KO power.

TAKE Matt Mitrione -115 odds

UFC 113 Odds: Alan Belcher vs. Patrick Cote

Alan Belcher -130
Patrick Cote Even
