Herman enters this fight as the favorite to win according to oddsmakers from online sportsbook Bodog as he has odds of -200 while Einemo has a money line of +160. UFC 131 takes place from the Rogers Arena and will air live on Pay-Per-View at 9PM ET.

WHY PICK HERMAN

Herman (20-2) has had a lot of success in his MMA career outside of the UFC and now he gets a chance to show what he can do in the octagon. Herman has finished all but one of his victories and his striking will be far superior to Einemo’s in this contest. Also, Einemo has not competed in a MMA event since 2006.

WHY PICK EINEMO

Einemo (6-1) is one of the top submission grapplers in all the world as he is a World BJJ champion. He has competed in MMA before, back in 2006, but a five-year layoff could be a big factor. If this fight gets to the ground, you have to like Einemo’s chances to win.

WHO TO PICK?

Einemo is a great submission fighter, but he is very one dimensional. I expect Herman to keep this fight standing and pepper his opponent with big strikes before finishing the fight by TKO in the third round.
