MMA Betting: UFC Edgar vs. Faber Main Card Preview

Posted by The Wiesguy on 5/11/2015 10:04:30 PM

With boxing and MMA there have been a number of pay per view cards of late. However, the next big UFC event, UFC Fight Night 66 will be on Fox Sports One for the world to see without having to dip into their wallets. Just because that is the case don’t think that means this event is coming from Las Vegas though, this event will be live from Philippines at the Mall of Asia Arena in Greater Manila. This is the first time the UFC has been in this neck of the woods, interesting timing given the recent Pacquiao fight. I guess this part of the world is a real fight mecca.

The feature bout for this card is Frankie Edgar vs. Urijah Faber. Both have been former champions though UFC fans are probably a lot more familiar with Edgar who once held the lightweight belt. He has not fought since November and has bounced back from back to back losses to Benson Henderson, followed by an additional loss to Jose Aldo. Faber has 32 wins to his credit but is just 8-3 in UFC events (he has extensive experience on other circuits). As a result he is a pretty significant underdog to Edgar at +315.

According to the oddsmakers the best bout on the card will be between American Neil Magny and South Korean Hyung Gyu Lim. Again this is a case where one fighter, Magny, has a lot of experience within the UFC while his opponent does not. In UFC bouts Lim is 3-1 but he has been impressive with three knockouts and the one loss coming on a decision. Magny is honorable mention on the MMA Junkie listing for the weight class which is why he is a slight favourite in this one at -115. This should be a really good one to watch.

Few in UFC have more wins than Gegard Mousasi’s 35. The intimidating Iranian is currently ranked sixth in the middleweight division and will be taking on fellow top 15 fighter in the form of Costas Philippou. Mousasi is a very heavy favourite at -565. At some prices he can be the right guy to back because he takes care of business and knocks people out but not this one. That and the fact that Phillipou hasn’t fought in a year are very good reasons to take a pass on this fight. The only reason it is being billed as the second best fight is the reputation of the fighters. Nobody is giving Philippou a shot to win.

Even though it was a last minute addition people are looking forward to the bout between Mark Munoz and Luke Barnatt. Munoz may be American but he goes by the name of the Filipino Wrecking Machine. As far as nicknames go it isn’t the best but it is ten times better than Barnatt who goes by the BigSlow. Despite that he is still the favourite as youth and a six inch height advantage. Barnatt was perfect for his first eight fights but has lost his last two. Munoz at +140 is definitely worth a shot.
