UFC 161 Opening Betting Odds

UFC 161 PosterThis past weekend featured the UFC on Fuel TV 10 card with a bevy of Brazilians, as well as Metamoris 2 — a jiu-jitsu event with many of the top names in the sport — so one would expect quite a few submissions to take place. What nobody could have predicted was that the submissions at UFC on Fuel TV 10 would outnumber those from Metamoris eight to one. Coming off of that highly entertaining event, the UFC is back at it again as they travel to Winnipeg, Manitoba for the first time with a card that has been held together with tape and glue. Originally scheduled to feature an interim bantamweight title bout and two sterling light heavyweight matches, the card has been reduced to Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans in the main event, with Roy Nelson taking on Stipe Miocic as the top supporting bout. You can see how the line for Henderson-Evans was opened here, as well as the line for the welterweight battle between Tyron Woodley and Jake Shields here, as both fights were featured on the MMA Oddsbreaker show. Lines have also been released for Nelson-Miocic, Ryan Jimmo vs. Igor Pokrajac, Pat Barry vs. Shawn Jordan, and Alexis Davis vs. Rosi Sexton. Today, MMA oddsmaker Nick Kalikas opened the remaining betting lines for the UFC 161 card at Several Bookmakers. Check them out below: ——————– MAIN CARD Rashad Evans -120 Dan Henderson -120 Roy Nelson -260 Stipe Miocic +180 Alexis Davis -380 Rosi Sexton +260 Pat Barry -175 Shawn Jordan +135 Ryan Jimmo -245 Igor Pokrajac +175 ——————– PRELIMINARY CARD (FX) Tyron Woodley -180 Jake Shields +140 Sam Stout -265 James Krause +185 Sean Pierson -150 Kenny Robertson +110 Roland Delorme -160 Edwin Figueroa +120 ——————– PRELIMINARY CARD (Facebook) John Maguire -300 Mitch Clarke +220 Yves Jabouin -265 Dustin Pague +185 ——————–
