UFC 149 Betting OddsNext Saturday July 21st the Canadian city of Calgary will receive for the first time the UFC betting with UFC 149, where the main battle is for the interim title from Urijah Faber and Renan Barao. Undoubtedly, this is a fight that promises much, but much dynamite inside the Octagon. Join Now to Bet on this Game!

The reason why the Brazilian Barao is facing the "California Kid" is the injury to one knee defending champion, Dominick Cruz, who canceled or postponed one of the greatest trilogies of Mixed Martial Arts, Cruz vs. Faber.

First we have a clash between two schools of MMA betting , the fight with Faber and Brazilian jiu-jitsu with Barao. But to think that only based on their respective disciplines to achieve his success is a mistake.

Urijah, 33, has a career mark of 26-5 and already a veteran of the sport. In 2006 he crowned WEC bantamweight champion and since then became the face of this organization. His reign lasted until 2008, when he lost to Mike Brown and, after this failure, has been in three championship fights (a rematch with Brown, another with Jose Aldo and the last in the UFC against Dominick Cruz), losing them all, so this could be your last chance to take the coveted UFC belt.

Its basis is the fight, but his jiu-jitsu is very good, as evidenced by his fourteen submissions, and his hands have given 7 KO. Furthermore, experience in big fights is on your side, and then defended his WEC crown 7 times, his fight with Aldo was the only event in the WEC PPV and his last title fight with Cruz was the main event of UFC 132.

Among his victims are Cole Escovedo, Cruz (first fight), Jens Pulver, Raphael Assuncao, Eddie Wineland and Brian Bowles, among others. A list negligible indeed.

Now before a Brazilian fighter coming into this fight with a streak of 29 straight wins.

Barao, with just 25 years, up to his date with history with a record of 30-1-0 and its winning streak will be tested by the quality of its rival. The South American debut in the WEC in 2010, won his two WEC fights and when merged with the UFC, the Brazilian kept his undefeated winning his three fights and leaving the way Escovedo, Brad Pickett and Scott Jorgensen. Another very short list negligible.

In his thirty wins, thirteen have been by submission and 6 by knockout. Even in the promotional videos of the fight, you can see a Barao shooting highly explosive kicks and subjecting his opponents with great force.

Faber knows this, but confident in their abilities to quit winner on July 21, "all streaks come to an end. He is a little slower than Cruz, but beware of his kicks and knees, trains with Aldo. "

"Win who arrives in better shape, who impose their will and that will be me," said Urijah.

His opponent also relies on its quality and shows a good dose of humility. "I will give my best to come out victorious. I am very happy with the opportunity and this is a dream for me, "Barao said on a conference call the week before his fight.
One who does not doubt the quality of these two fighters is Dana White, who at the same conference said they are two and Dominick Cruz, in his opinion, the best bantamweight in the UFC.

He said as Cruz's injury requires several months of recovery, he hoped that whoever wins this fight, fight back and then front to cross.

A notable aspect of this fight and the undercard is that there were many changes, including Faber vs. Barao was originally scheduled for UFC 148 on July 7. But injuries affected the original protagonists of the UFC 149 and now in the hands of everyone involved in giving a large billboard.

Something that has no doubt Faber, "I do not feel pressure because I always keep in my fights. Ours has the potential for fight of the year, Barao is very talented, but now I'm at the top of my skills. I know we will give a good fight and meeting the other fighters, Lombard, Boetsch and Kongo, this could be the billboard for more action in this 2012 ".

The ingredients for this to happen are there and the adjustments to the lineup, bringing a championship bout and electrifying fighters, several of the differences in the UFC with other sports, like boxing, for example. If this event had been boxing, had been postponed or canceled. I have no doubt of this.

But Calgary, which had already bought their tickets and they expected a lot of action with other fighters, are not going to be disappointed that the UFC brings two of the best bantamweight in action, plus the debut of Cuban Hector Lombard in a heavy fists war with Tim Boetsch and the presence of French Cheick Kongo, which is always guaranteed action in the octagon.

"Those who bought tickets will see exactly what they expected," said White, reaffirming their confidence in this event that will electrify Calgary.

All this without mentioning that there are two Latinos in Action, Francisco Rivera and Daniel Pineda, and in Canada the atmosphere you always get the UFC is unique and unsurpassed record speaks for itself.

Will he win Faber to finally be crowned champion of the UFC? Or is Barao on 4 active Brazilian champion, Jose Aldo addition, Anderson Silva and Junior dos Santos?
The answers we will be on July 21st at UFC 149 and I cannot give out because I have them. Nobody has them.

The odds at William Hill sports has Renan Barao as favorite -200 against Urijah Faber for the UFC 149 betting.
