Anderson "The Spider" Silva and Yushin "Thunder" Okami will battle for the UFC Middleweight Championship in the main event with Silva as the heavy favorite.

UFC Middleweight Championship- Anderson "The Spider" Silva -500 vs. Yushin "Thunder" Okami +400: The last loss of Anderson Silva's career was against Okami due to a disqualification in a fight he was clearly winning when Silva kicked Yushin (and knocked him out) while he was down. The money has been pouring in on Silva and the price keeps rising for bettors looking to bet on "The Spider". The opening number was -370 and has jumped anywhere from -500 to -625 depending what sportsbook you play at. -500 or more is too much money to lay on Silva but we can in no way justify taking a flyer on Okami with this fight being in Brazil. Just sit back and enjoy this one or make a junkie bet on Okami hoping for the upset and nice payday.

For you sports bettors who like to track where the public is putting money, here are the opening UFC odds and who the public is currently betting in UFC 134- Okami 54% (opened Silva -370/+300), Griffin 65% (opened Rua -205/+165), Schaub 59% (opened Schaub -235/+185), 51% Pearson (opened Barboza -275/+215), 52% Cane (opened Cane -245/+195), 66% Fisher (opened Tavares -215/+175), 54% Mitchel (opened Thiago -400/+300), 59% Ramos (opened Silva -285/+225), 54% Palhares (opened Palhares -255/+205), 65% Alcantra (opened Alcantra -425/Arantes +325), 52% Loveland (opened Loveland -200/+160) and 55% Eduardo (opened Assuncao -172/+142). Some of the bigger public leans on round total wagers are 76% on under rounds in Brendan Schaub vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, 83% on under rounds in Luiz Cane vs. Stanislav Nedkov, 76% on under rounds in Paulo Thiago vs. David Mitchell, 78% on under rounds in Yuri Alcantara vs. Felipe Arantes, 83% on under rounds in Erick Silva vs. Luis Ramos, 83% on under rounds in Ian Loveland vs. Yves Jabouin and 77% on under rounds in Raphael Assuncao vs. Johnny Eduardo.

Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
-240 vs. Forrest Griffin +200: This is a rematch between these two fighters that had Griffin winning the first showdown as an underdog. The opening number had Rua once again favored at -205 and early money has pushed the line up to -240 even though 65% of the public is betting Griffin. One thing to look out for is the long reach of Griffin to set up a potential takedown. Rua is not great at stopping the takedown and only has a 12% take-down defense rating, while Forrest is sitting at 63%. Getting +200 on Griffin is worth a small wager.
