    This is the first time Mike Perry will have a size and reach advantage. IMO it is a really easy fight to call, not surprising, the odds really favor him. I got Platinum by KO round 1 or 2

    Platinum by KO is a good bet. Like yourself I aren't surprised he opens as favourite. After he KOs Ellenberger I expect Mike to get a top ten opponent.

    From time to time Vegas likes to give back.

    Bet the house on Platinum!

    I don't know why he's the favorite. Ellenberger has declined, but we shouldn't pretend that Perry is some up and coming prospect tearing through the division. It's a toss-up for me.

    First he made Hyun Gyu Lim quit AND cry, then he broke Danny Roberts so bad he needed titanium plates inserting into his face. it's over for Jake

    Definitely not a huge favorite. Ellenbergers chin has been cracked in previous fights so Perry should be the safe bet here. What site did you get the odds from?

    In fact Perry is favored by the smallest margin for any favorite on the entire main card, tied with OSP.

    Cub Swanson (-680) vs. Artem Lobov (+490)
    Al Iaquinta (-420) vs. Diego Sanchez (+335)
    Ovince Saint Preux (-185) vs. Marcos Rogerio de Lima (+160)
    John Dodson (-410) vs. Eddie Wineland (+330)
    Stevie Ray (-220) vs. Joe Lauzon (+180)
    Mike Perry (-185) vs. Jake Ellenberger (+160)

    Glass chin? Mike Perry hands out knockouts like its candy on Halloween.

    It's huge considering Jake KO'd one of the top 3 ATG WW's (in the past) and Mike just lost to Alan Jouban

    Jake always finds a way to lose a fight, so sure bet on Perry.

    No it isn't Ellenberger has only won 2-fights in the last 4-years and one was against Koscheck who should have been retired. By the odds this is the closest fight on the main card as you can see I added on my original post.
