The headline bout in UFC odds is the one between Rashad Evans and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. UFC betting should have had this fight back in December at UFC 107 but Jackson was filming the A-Team movie and backed out. Now the two will battle in UFC betting in UFC 114.
“It’s no secret that Rampage Jackson and Rashad Evans don’t like each other, and this rivalry has gotten more and more intense in the last few months.” UFC president Dana White said, “I can guarantee you that neither one of these guys wants to lose to each other, this fight is going to be insane.” Jackson is a very slight -130 favorite over Evans in UFC odds.
Jackson is a former UFC light heavyweight champion as he beat Chuck Liddell at UFC 71. He has also had big wins over Wanderlei Silva, Marvin Eastman and Dan Henderson in his career. His most recent win was over Keith Jardine at UFC 96, “I really want to knock this guy out,” Jackson said.
“I’ve never, ever wanted to knock someone as cold as I want to knock Rashad Evans out.” Evans last win was against Thiago Silva at UFC 108. He has wins over Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin in his career. “I don’t like all the pre-fight talking, so I can’t wait until I finally get my chance to shut him up,” said Evans.
The UFC betting card for UFC 114 actually has another great fight on the card as Forrest Griffin goes up against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. This is a key fight for Griffin to still prove he belongs on the elite part of a UFC gambling card. He is a solid underdog in UFC betting though as Nogueira is a -270 favorite.
There are five bouts on the main UFC betting card for UFC 114. In addition to the Jackson-Evans and Griffin-Nogueira bouts, it will be Dan Miller taking on Michael Bisping, Todd Duffee vs. Mike Russow and John Hathaway vs. Diego Sanchez.
This UFC betting card will include six preliminary bouts and two of them will air live on Spike TV. In those two bouts it will be Amir Sadollah vs. Dong Hyun Kim and Efrain Escudero vs. Dan Lauzon.
The other four preliminary bouts have Melvin Guillard vs. Thiago Tavares, Luiz Arthur Cane vs. Cyrille Diabate, Aaron Riley vs. Joe Brammer and Jesse Forbes vs. Ryan Jensen.
