The latest odds according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv have Hendricks as the slight favorite in the rematch, as he is getting odds of -210 to prevail, while Lawler has been given a money line of +170 to win.

The first fight was a classic, with both men scoring big strikes throughout the 25 minutes of action. It was a few takedowns that allowed Hendricks to pick up the decision victory. In that first fight, Hendricks was dealing with a torn bicep, which impacted his conditioning and overall ability. He is healthy coming into this fight, which is what should allow him to get the win. Hendricks looked slow against Lawler in the first meeting and that shouldn’t be the case tonight. Look for the champion to push a strong pace and quickly leave Lawler gassing. Hendricks should be able to open up his punching in the later rounds and score the TKO finish in the fourth.
