UFC 121 Odds to Win and Official Fight Card

UFC 121 Betting Picks and OddsThe odds for this UFC betting have been close all along with Velasquez checking in as a slight underdog leading up to fight time at +105 compared with -135 for Lesnar. The size differential of about 30-40 pounds in favor of Lesnar could factor huge in this one, but Velasquez might be the most well-rounded opponent Lesnar has faced with the best cardio and speed. Cain Velasquez has a chance to be the first Mexican heavyweight champion in fighting history. Velasquez has heavy hands and a motor that doesn’t stop. Lesnar took a pounding from Shane Carwin in his last title defense but his opponent gassed out.
Lesnar won’t have that luxury against Cain. It looks like a fantastic matchup on paper but Lesnar will enter the ring about 30lbs heavier and he’s faced and beat tougher opponents in his career than Velasquez. Take Lesnar to finish Cain in the third.

Cain Velasquez +105
Brock Lesnar -135

Jake Shields is on a 14-fight winning streak, of course he hasn’t earned the respect he would have had he been fighting in the UFC. During his streak, he’s had six decision wins, six submissions and two TKOs. Kampmann was climbing the welterweight ladder before being KO’d by Paul Daily. Kampmann is an excellent striker and while he won’t beat Shields, he’ll force Shields into an exciting fight.

Martin Kampmann +175
Jake Shields -220

The last time we saw Tito Ortiz he was being ousted as the coach of the Ultimate Fighter because of a back injury. The back is healthier and Ortiz will test it against Hamill. Hamill has just two losses on his record, one a controversial loss to Michael Bisping, and one loss to former champion Rich Franklin. He got away with a win after Jon Jones threw an illegal elbow and was DQ’d; Hamill was on the verge of tapping out. Hamill is a tough wrestler and his striking has improved immensely since he first joined the UFC odds. Ortiz is too old and Hamill will earn a nice victory here.

Tito Ortiz +125
Matt Hamill -155
