In the wake of injuries and failed pre-fight drug tests, the complexion of UFC 130 has taken a dramatic makeover, including the removal of a main event which was supposed to feature Frankie Edgar’s defense of the UFC Lightweight championship against Gray Maynard. Those changes have left Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Matt Hamill to fill the main event void, with a heavyweight clash between Frank Mir and Roy Nelson right underneath.

Online Sports Betting Odds: Mir - 200

A former UFC Interim Heavyweight champion, Mir bounced back from a tough loss at the hands of Shane Carwin to take down Mirko Cro Cop in the main event at UFC 119. Now comes the next stop on the road to regaining his status as a true contender in the division, the first bout for “Big Country” Nelson since falling to Junior dos Santos in the UFC Heavyweight title MLB betting-type eliminator tournament.

UFC Betting Preview: Frank Mir

A black belt in both Kenpo Karate and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Mir has struggled to find his consistency since rising to the top of the division and earning a shot at the heavyweight title. The 31-year old beat Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for the interim championship, but lost it in his very next fight to Brock Lesnar. A bounce-back win over Cheick Kongo was followed by a knockout loss to Shane Carwin in a rematch for the interim title, and since Mir has knocked off Cro Cop to get back on track for the time being. With eight of his 14 career wins clinched via submission it’s no secret that Mir excels in the clinch, and if he can get back to his game it could mean some more consistent results.

UFC Betting Preview: Roy Nelson

Big Country knocked out Brendan Schaub and Stefan Struve before Junior dos Santos found a way to avoid his heavy hands and beat him by unanimous decision, and now it’s back to the basics for Nelson. The 34-year old will rely on his punching power as he gets ready to take on another proven opponent, although he will have to be careful not too get too aggressive and allow Mir to take advantage with a submission move. A black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Nelson has all of the tools to become a top fighter but has struggled to put them together in the UFC.

UFC Betting: Matchup & Pick

Both men have trained hard to prove that they belong at the top of the UFC heavyweight division, but the edge for this fight has to go to Mir based on experience and the fact that he has already beaten some of the best the sport has to offer. Nelson has failed when given the opportunity to take a step up in terms of division, and will have trouble making any UFC betting ground in his class against Mir.
