I remember at 164 both Pettis and Benson were +100 or something.
I wouldn't be surprised if the line was something like that, especially since Machida has looked great since the drop and Vegas still at Weidman as the underdog in the second fight against Silva.

I'm sure the casual bettor will also take Weidman. Most people dislike boring fighters and to many Machida is considered boring.

That would be kinda funny if Weidman lost on a spinning backfist like Serra did.

The betting lines will have Weidman as a slight favourite.

The reality of the fight gives a slight edge to Machida, IMO.

This will be a very interesting fight, because with Machida you always have the great possibility of the fight going the distance. As we saw with Gus-Jones, you don't want to be the challenger and have it go to the cards - ever. And that point was really spotlighted after Hendricks beat GSP - and was blatantly robbed.

I see Machida frustrating Weidman, Weidman repeatedly trying to take Lyoto down to no avail, and the champion getting Shadfaced.

I see it that way also unless Machida gets caught.

I think you mean both were -100. I have never seen a line where both fighters were underdogs.

I thinking Machida would be +140-160. At 160 I think Machida would be a considerable value. I am going to see where the line trends.

I am way more intrested in this fight than vitor. I think it's an intreasting match up should be a great fight.
