Pookie's Odds:
-500 Vitor Belfort vs Wanderlia Silva +375
+160 Chael Sonnen vs Ronaldo Souza -200
-145 Michael Bisping vs Luke Rockhold -115
-300 Dan Henderson vs Tim Boetsch +265




I think Sonnen got the best opponent who isn't Silva to be able to beat him. Wouldn't be surprised with a round 1 exit.



I knew my pick of Sonnen was in trouble as soon as I saw the match-up.
