Despite smashing through every opponent placed in front of him in the UFC octagon and crushing Cain Velasquez in their first meeting, Junior dos Santos is only considered a slight favorite to win the rematch between them.

In the first line released on the fight, noted oddsmaker Nick Kalikas installed the reigning UFC heavyweight champion as a -150 favorite over the ex-champ, who is a +120 underdog.

dos Santos (15-1) was also considered a slight favorite in the opening line of their first fight, though just barely, at -125 to Velasquez's -105.

I didn't know the fight was official yet but yes, I agree with the odds. I predict the odds will narrow to almost even - as the fight gets closer.

If I remember right Cain shot for an ealy takedown but Junior just shrugged him off. Cain beat Silva in impressive fasion, but I don't hold Silva in high regards. It might not be as quick, but I still see Junior knocking him out.

I might pick Cain the 2nd time around. I am a big JDS fan but I will admit the knock out was very fast and Cain will be way more careful this time around. But with that being said will Cain be too cautious to where he can't set up his takedowns?

I don't think Cain deserves this just yet. He is one of my favorites, but he lost to JDS pretty bad. It wasn't a flash KO or a referee malfunction.

Plus I like having a striker as champ, and Cain is the only one who can dethrone him
