Check out the current odds for UFC 118at SBG Global.
There are five bouts on the main card with the bout between Edgar and Penn getting top billing. Edgar shocked Penn in UFC 112 but he doesn’t get much time to enjoy his title as he has a quick rematch against Penn on Saturday night. Penn is a 3-1 favorite to regain his title. Not many people believe that Edgar can pull off a second straight upset. Edgar proved in the first fight he has a speed advantage against Penn but there is no question that Penn has more power. One thing that won’t happen in this bout is Penn underestimating Edgar. He will be extremely focused to prove that his loss last time was a fluke.
Randy Couture is a 7-1 favorite to destroy James Toney in the co-feature bout in UFC 118. Serious UFC experts don’t believe that Toney has any chance to win vs. Couture. Toney can hit but most people don’t believe he will be on his feet long enough for it to matter. Couture has a huge edge in experience and in training. Unless Couture makes a monumental mistake this fight should be over quickly in the favor of Couture.
The real co-feature should have been Kenny Florian against Gray Maynard. This might be the best matchup on the card. The winner of this bout will likely get a title shot vs. the winner of the Edgar-Penn fight. Florian is a -150 favorite in this UFC. Florian has the edge in striking in this bout and he may be able to land enough punches to win. Florian could also catch Maynard with a hold and win the fight by submission. Also on the main card it is Nate Diaz a 2-1 favorite vs. Marcus Davis and Demian Maia a 2-1 favorite vs. Mario Miranda.
The preliminary card has five bouts, two of which are on Spike TV. Those two are Andre Winner vs. Nik Lentz and Joe Lauzon vs. Gabe Ruediger. The other three bouts on the preliminary card have Nick Osipczak vs. Greg Soto, Alessio Sakara vs. Gerald Harris, John Salter vs. Dan Miller and Amilcar Alves vs. Mike Pierce.
