Online betting players should be in for an exciting fight in the main event of UFC 122 in Germany when Nate Marquardt takes on Yushin Okami with a shot at the middleweight title at stake. Both guys are experienced and they know what they’re doing in the octagon, but we’re taking Marquardt with a slight edge in this bout.

  • What: UFC Betting
  • When: Saturday, November 13th, 3:00 PM ET
  • Where: Konig Pilsner Arena, Oberhausen, Germany
  • Pick: Nate Marquardt

What’s On The Line

The UFC’s middleweight title is on the line in this eliminator match, meaning the winner of this bout will fight either champion Anderson Silva or Vitor Belfort who will battle each other at UFC 126 in February. Both of these fighters are experienced and can beat you in a number of different ways, and this could end up being a “Fight of the Year” contender as both warriors like to come at their opponents.

Nate Marquardt: UFC Betting

The 31-year-old Marquardt (30-9, eight KOs), nicknamed “The Great”, has a background in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and started out as a submission specialist before rounding out his game. But lately, Marquardt has been using his power to overwhelm foes as his last four fights have ended by strikes, and he also has the stamina to go the distance. Marquardt recovered from a disappointing loss to Chael Sonnen at UFC 109 to beat Rousimar Palhares, and he was later found to be innocent of greasing his leg, which he was accused of by Palhares’ corner. He would love another shot at the middleweight crown as Marquardt was knocked out by Silva back at UFC 73.

Yushin Okami: UFC Betting

Also known as the “Thunder” or “Phoenix”, the 29-year-old Okami (25-5, nine KOs) has a background in wrestling and kickboxing, and he’s improved his striking a lot throughout his MMA career. He has just two losses in his UFC career, and those were to Sonnen and Rich Franklin, both via decision. Okami’s mission is simple: another bout with Silva. The two met at Rumble on the Rock 8 in Hawaii back in 2006, and Okami took the win after Silva landed a kick that knocked Okami out, but Okami’s knees were on the mat, making the kick illegal even though Silva was on his back. A win in this match and Okami would be halfway there.

Outlook and Pick: UFC Betting

It’s tough to say who UFC betting odds will favor when they come out, as both fighters are on a roll and outside of losses to Sonnen (who lost to Silva at UFC 117 via submission despite dominating the champion for the entire fight), they’ve been perfect. Marquardt has been here before, and he’d love another shot at the championship, while Okami has yet to challenge for the middleweight belt in the UFC. Three of Marquardt’s last four fights have ended in the first round, and it may be more in Okami’s favor to keep the fight going as long as possible. Marquardt is going to have to watch out for Okami’s takedown attempts as that is what doomed him against Sonnen. If he can do that, Marquardt will be waiting for the champion to be decided in February. Take Nate Marquardt with your sports betting pick.

Jack’s Pick: Nate Marquardt
