Bet on UFC 199 Odds

Rockhold (15-2) is the champion and making his first title defense against Bisping (28-7), who is taking the fight on just over two weeks notice. This fight was originally scheduled to be a Rockhold vs. Chris Weidman rematch, but Weidman suffered a neck injury. Bisping elected to step in, getting his first-ever title fight. These two actually met in November of 2014, with Rockhold getting a submission win in the second round.

This seems like an easy pick. Rockhold beat Bisping pretty easily before and is even better now, but Rockhold disclosed he is dealing with a bad knee, which could leave him vulnerable in a grappling battle. Bisping is not much of a grappler, but he is a tough guy that keeps coming. With this being his first title opportunity, he is going to leave it all in the cage. Still, Rockhold is the better fighter on paper and should win, but stranger things have happened. If you aren’t afraid to lose some money, take a chance on Bisping. Still, we will pick Rockhold to be the winner.
