Online betting players saw one of the biggest upsets in UFC history at UFC 112, when Frankie Edgar shocked the MMA world to beat B.J. Penn and take the lightweight title from him, a belt that Penn had owned for 2 ½ years.  A rematch was instantly set by UFC president Dana White, and the two will lock horns again at UFC 118 in Boston on August 28th.  Edgar will battle gamely, as he did the first time, but we’re going to with the experienced and motivated Penn to take his crown back.

B.J. “The Prodigy” Penn (15-6, six KOs)

Word is, Penn was sick and on antibiotics when he fought Edgar the first time, and it always seems to be something when Penn loses a bout.  That being said, you can’t deny Penn’s talent, and he’s as gifted a lightweight as the MMA world has ever seen.  He can stand up and box, and he’s just as good at Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (it’s thought that Penn earned a black belt in BJJ faster than anyone….ever).  He has the same number of submissions as he does knockouts, and his remarkable flexibility means that even when he’s on the bottom, Penn is never out of it and can get you into his guard quickly, or transition into a submission.  You could see that Penn wasn’t himself in the first Edgar fight, and a motivated Penn is very hard to beat at 155 pounds.

Frankie “The Answer” Edgar (12-1, two KOs)

Edgar was a wrestler who earned his purple belt in BJJ, and while many think he came out of nowhere to beat Penn, Edgar is 7-1 in the UFC with a knockout, a submission and three “Fight of the Night” victories, so he earned his spot against Penn.  He took full advantage of his chance as well, standing up with Penn for most of the fight and outboxing “The Prodigy”.  Edgar was also the first person to take Penn to the mat in a lightweight fight, using his wrestling background (Edgar still coaches wrestling at Rutgers) to find an edge, but his ability to stand up with Penn surprised everyone watching the fight. 

Penn Edgar Betting Pick And Analysis

UFC betting odds have Penn as a -340 favorite in this contest, while Edgar comes in at +265, but he’s used to being the underdog, so it’s fine.  We’re not saying that Edgar’s first win over Penn was a fluke, because he deserves all the credit he gets for fighting the fight of his life.  But Penn was just a bit off, and it was strange to see him outworked like that on his feet, especially in the lightweight division.  We’re betting that Penn left the Octagon at UFC 112, and went straight to the gym, where he has been since that night, and when it comes down to it, Penn is the best lightweight in the world.  Edgar will put up a good fight, but Penn will prove why they call him “The Prodigy”.  Take him in your sports betting book.
