Penn (15-6-1). This fight was a rematch from UFC 112 when Edgar won a controversial decision over Penn. While Edgar fought a good fight, it wasn’t clear cut that he defeated Penn. In the rematch, Penn is still the large favorite with a betting line of -320, while Edgar has a line of +230. Edgar has the speed to compete with Penn, and it was his movement and takedowns that allowed him to get the win. This time around, Penn should be motivated to fight and will probably be more aggressive than he was in the first contest.

MMA vs. Boxing

The co-main event of Saturday’s event is a battle between UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture (18-10-2) and boxer James Toney (0-0). This fight is being billed as MMA vs. Boxing as Toney is the first boxing champion to step into the octagon.
