The Ultimate Fighting Championships will make its debut at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Michigan this November 20, with a stacked card featuring a main event that pits two of the biggest names in the sport against one another in an arena known for hosting NBA betting.

  • What: UFC 123 Rampage Jackson vs Lyota Machida
  • When: Saturday November 20, 2010
  • Where: The Palace of Auburn Hills, Auburn Hills, Michigan
  • Pick: Machida - 275

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will meet Lyota Machida in a light heavyweight division contest to cap an exciting night, as both men look to bounce back from losses that had major implications on their future in the UFC. While Machida lost the UFC Light Heavyweight belt to Mauricio Rua in his last contest, Jackson will be coming off a loss in which he conceded the number one contender spot for the title to Rashad Evans at UFC: 114. Both men are looking to re-establish themselves as among the best in the business, but only one will get the chance to avoid a second straight loss.

Betting Preview: Rampage Jackson

An absolute monster in the octagon, Jackson’s confidence and betting swagger got the best of him in his loss to Evans, a fight that went the full three rounds before the judge’s ruled on it unanimously. The 32-year old had earned Knock Out of the Night and Fight of the Night honors in consecutive tilts by beating Wanderlei Silva and Keith Jardine back-to-back after a loss to Forrest Griffin, but had his momentum stalled once again in his shot at getting to the front of the line for the title. Jackson had won six in a row before that, and will look to rebound in a hurry having never lost consecutive fights before.

Betting Preview: Lyota Machida

A black belt in both Shotokan and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Machida registered 16 straight wins before finally getting knocked out in the first round of his loss to Mauricio Rua, a loss that cost him the UFC Light Heavyweight championship. Having already beaten Rua before, the 32-year old is as determined as ever to get back to the top for another rematch. Of his 16 career wins, nine have come by decision while another five were clinched via knockout, and while Jackson is a tough opponent, to Machida he is just another speed bump on the road back to the top.

UFC 123 Match Up: Rampage vs Machida

While Jackson has never lost consecutive fights before, Machida is coming off the first loss of his career and it will be interesting to see how he fares. Neither fighter gives up and inch, and while Machida is undoubtedly the more well rounded of the two, that loss may lead to an increase in aggression that could leave him vulnerable to Jackson’s knockout ability. If he could get through the first two rounds, Machida will likely hold on to score the decision, but that isn’t going to happen as Jackson scores another knock out win to get back on track.

MMA Betting Pick: Jackson
