UFC 115 Betting - 40 Year Old Liddell in Top Shape

UFC 115 betting excitement and anticipation continues to grow as Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell prepares for his matchup with Rich Franklin.

UFC 115 betting fans cannot wait for this Light Heavyweight bout matchup of legendary past champions with the UFC 115 odds as the winner will be on the title belt comeback trail.

Liddell has had his share of problems, however, as he enters action against Franklin with the UFC 115 betting board.  Liddell has lost four out of his last five bouts including two consecutive but has had a long layoff since his last fight on April 18, 2009 at UFC 97 when he was defeated in a technical knockout by Mauricio Rua in Montreal.

The Liddell versus Franklin UFC 115 gambling matchup had fans storming the gates for tickets as the event that will be held in Vancouver’s General Motors Place was completely sold out within 30 minutes.

Liddell was originally slated to have a bet on UFC 115 showdown with Tito Ortiz, who later pulled out due to a neck injury.  Liddell and Ortiz hate each other, which in a way would have made preparations easier for this bout.

In Franklin, who is 5 years younger, Liddell will face one of the best fighters in the Light Heavyweight division and a man that fights with a similar style to Liddell himself.

Liddell boasts of being in great shape for action with the UFC 115 odds and that the long layoff will not be a negative.

“Most of its consistency of training,” said Liddell.  “I’ve been working since November straight through pretty much.”

Liddell has been on a strict diet for his UFC 115 gambling prep and has even abstained from consuming adult beverages in order to maintain fighting weight.

“He’s a great opponent,” Liddell said of Franklin.  “I think it’s going to be an exciting fight.  We’re both ready to go out there and punch each other and people kind of like those types of fights.”

There will be a total of 5 features bouts with the UFC betting lines on June 12 that can be seen on pay-per-view along with 2 preliminary UFC115 betting bouts that can be seen on Spike TV.
