UFC 127 odds will include a middleweight bout between Michael Bisping and Jorge Rivera that will garner plenty of UFC betting activity amongst gamblers.
Jorge Rivera will take on Michael Bisping on Saturday with a starting time of 3 PM ET as UFC 127 will be held at Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia. Sports Gambling opened with a UFC betting line of Bisping as a prohibitive -360 favorite and Rivera at what could be a very live +260 dog.
Rivera has not been shy about talking to the press and making headlines in the lead up to this but and it has begun to irritate Bisping but Rivera said in good nature that if Bisping has a problem with anything that he has said all he has to do is knock him out to shut him up.
Bisping has gotten plenty of attention and notoriety for himself by being the featured fighter in The Ultimate Fighter 3 and has made a quick rise to the top of contender status while Rivera is a seasoned veteran that has experience going all the way back to UFC 44.
Rivera is a fighter that is known for his heart and effort and as a man that leaves everything he has on the octagon. Rivera is riding a three bout winning streak into this matchup as he defeated Nissen Osterneck, Rob Kimmons, and Nate Quarry. But the 38 year old realizes that to be taken seriously he must score a payout with the UFC 127 betting odds over Bisping.
At first Bisping didn’t even want to fight Rivera and said some rather disparaging things about his opponent including that he was “beneath” him but ultimately decided to go through with the bout in order to as he basically said to teach Rivera a lesson.
Rivera and his team have added fuel to the fire be releasing videos that make fun of Bisping’s fighting style. Bisping has taken great offense to it all while Rivera has said that his opponent should just lighten up and that it is all in the name of good fun. Rivera’s loose attitude makes him an attractive dog with the UFC 127 odds.
