UFC on FX 6 Odds
QUEENSLAND, Australia (TheSpread) – The UFC begins a busy weekend of fights with UFC on FX 6 on Friday night, featuring a pair of exciting bout.
UFC on FX 6 will take place from the Gold Coast Convention Centre in Queensland, Australia with the main card bouts airing live on FX at 9PM ET.
The main event of Friday’s event is a lightweight contest between George Sotiropoulos (14-4) and Ross Pearson (13-6). According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Sotiropoulos is the favorite to win this fight, as he has odds of -135 to win, while Pearson comes in with odds of +105. These two are meeting as part of the finale to “The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes” a TUF competition featuring fighters from Australia and England. Pearson had been fighting at featherweight but is moving up to lightweight for this bout. He has lost three of his last five bouts but he is a tough, well-rounded fighter that has big power in his hands. Sotiropoulos hasn’t fought since July of 2011 and he has lost his last two bouts. He had gotten to be one of the top lightweights in the world prior to this losing streak. He has tremendous submission skills and should have the edge on the ground against Pearson.
In the co-main event, middleweights Hector Lombard (31-3-1) and Rousimar Palhares (14-4) meet up in the octagon. Oddsmakers have Lombard as the favorite, as he has odds of -215 to win, while Palhares has a money line of +175 to win. Lombard is fighting for the second time in the UFC. He lost his UFC debt by decision to Tim Boetsch in an uneventful performance. Lombard is a strong, compact fighter that has strong striking and grappling ability. Palhares is coming off a loss to Alan Belcher last May. He is a great ground fighter with some solid power in his hands. He is also compact and strong, and he has the most dangerous leg locks in MMA.
