    I'd like to see Mayhem take it, but I don't think it will happen.

    Early Sportsbook odds have Fedor at -575 and Rogers at +375

    Everyone saying Rogers will win has a good opportunity to make some money :eek3:

    Why Mayhem and Bigfoot?

    I was undecided on Verdum and Silva so I just went with my gut :dunno:

    Mayhem is as good or better EVERYWHERE. He's going to win 50-45 and dominate.



    Silva just has to stay out of a ground war and he's gold. He's got a chin, hands, wrestling and can stay alive on the floor. TKO late in the first, early in the second.

    for fighting fedor, those odds arent very good. i think AA was around the same.

    Someone with as shit of a ground game as rogers, fighting fedor should be around +800. It's gonna be like fighting HMC.

    Agree on Mayhem, he's too long to lose the fight on the feet, and his ground game is easily on par with Shields. 50 - 45 with some awesome primetime antics from mayhem.

    Werdum by TKO or triangle. Silva is always game, but fairly unproven.

    Damn. Best mma card in November by FAR. Any of these fights is more interesting (to me) than Couture/Vera or Forrest/Tito.

    Good point, though I expect the odds will change a bit into next weekend.

    Guess people think a Rogers KO might be more likely than I thought.

    No kidding. Wasn't Shogun a bigger under-dog to Machida?? Maybe the sports books believe the general public actually believes Dana about Fedor being a farce?? I know several casual fans who only know Fedor as the guy who is afraid to go to the UFC and get smashed by Brock Lesnar.
