Betting Odds: Velasquez a big early favorite in rematch with ‘Bigfoot’ Silva | UFC NEWS


The odds makers have tabbed UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez as a big favorite in his upcoming title defense and rematch with Antonio Silva at UFC 160.

Bestfightingodds.com has Velasquez set at -570 while Silva is put at +430, making the champ a 4.3-to-1 favorite.

Velasquez dominated Silva just nine month ago with a first-round TKO that was a bloodbath of a fight.

Silva is coming off one of the biggest wins of his career, a third-round KO of Alistair Overeem at UFC 156. Prior to that, he also knocked out Travis Browne.

Velasquez (11-1) and Silva (18-4) are scheduled to meet on May 25 in Las Vegas.
