According to most sports betting websites it looks like Belfort and Rockhold are almost dead even as far as betting goes. 5Dimes has the fight favored for Rockhold

-120 to -110 Belfort. SportBet has the fight -116 to -106 for Rockhold. These are very close odds in the world of fight betting.

To break it down a bit it means to make $100 on either fighter you would have to bet $120 on Rockhold or $110 on Vitor. In most fight betting odds you have to pay more to make more, and if you bet on the underdog you would make double or triple the amount you would make betting on the favorite. In this fight you will make almost the same amount on either fighter no matter how much you bet.

The odds are basically as close as you can get without being even, something Belfort can’t be too happy with. Vitor holds the edge in experience and is coming off a huge TKO victory over Michael Bisping at UFC on FX. Vitor also was very close to submitting the UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones with an armbar at UFC 152.

Former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold is on a 9-fight win streak and defeated a very tough Tim Kennedy back on July 14, 2012. Rockhold was tearing through his division in Strikeforce and a fighter many MMA fans wanted to see in the UFC. Vitor is a very tough opponent and will gladly welcome Rockhold into the UFC.
