UFC 236 Betting Odds

Vitor Belfort and Anderson Silva:

Anderson Silva will put his 12-winning streak on the line, as he faces fellow Brazilian, Vitor Belfort.

Anderson Silva must step on the mat, and approach the UFC 126 championship fight, with the tactical precision that has reigned his division for the past four years. He must challenge his contender with a myriad of kicks, knees, punches, and brutal Muay Thai clinch to keep Vitor Belfort out of balance. In addition to this, Silva must also use his elusive head movement and ability to attack at various striking angles as a fighting strategy.

Vitor Belfort, on the other hand, must unleash his hand speed and precise strikes. His key assets will definitely be his boxing prowess, slick movement and the capacity to hit first. In the end, the fighter that will be able to resurrect their former self will be victorious. However, there is a big chance that UFC 126 is Vitor Belfort’s time to shine. That is if he can bring back the 19-year-old fighter with destructive force and lightning fast hands.

UFC 126 is expected to be one of the most stacked cards of the year, with bouts in the caliber of former world champions as Forrest Griffin takes on Rich “Ace” Franklin in a bout that is certain to have major title implications in the 205-pound weight class; and speaking of the light heavyweight division, two of its most exciting rising stars will clash when Jon “Bones” Jones takes on Ryan “Darth” Bader.
