UFC 86 betting Odds & Information

Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir will take on Justin McCully at UFC 86 on July 5 in Las Vegas. Frank Mir (11-3-0) last stepped into the cage at 81 defeating Brock Lesnar by submission in the first round.

Mir is riding high after a come-from-behind victory over Brock Lesnar in February. McCully, meanwhile, will return from injuries and fight in the octagon for the first time since his successful UFC debut nearly a year ago.

Mir, a former UFC heavyweight champion, earned co-main-event status during his UFC 81 fight with former NCAA Division I wrestling champion and WWE performer Lesnar. On the verge of suffering a TKO early in the fight, Mir got a break when Lesnar was deducted a point for blows to the back of the head. Lesnar continued to deliver brutal strikes, but Mir survived to slap on a fight-ending kneebar just 90 seconds into the fight.

Mir, who suffered a devastating motorcycle accident in 2004, picked up his second straight victory and his third win in his past four fights.

McCully (8-3-2) has not fought since April of last year, due to an injury that forced him off a scheduled bout at UFC 77. McCully’s last win came at UFC Fight Night 9 where he defeated Antoni Hardonk by unanimous decision.

With his victory over Antoni Hardonk a year ago, McCully, a member of Tito Ortiz’s Team Punishment, is now 3-0 since returning to MMA after a three-year break from the sport. He has a four-fight win streak and has won five of his past six fights overall.

Joe “Daddy” Stevenson will take on Gleison Tibau at UFC 86, July 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Stevenson is coming off a hard fought loss for the UFC lightweight title to the “Prodigy” BJ Penn at UFC 80.

Joe Stevenson (28-8) will look to get back in the 155-pound title hunt when he takes on Gleison Tibau (15-5) at UFC 86 on July 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Joe Stevenson is coming off a very rough submission loss to arguably the top mixed martial artist in the game, that being BJ Penn. Tibau is coming off a loss as well but to top lightweight Tyson Griffin at UFC 81. It will be interesting to see how both react to tough losses.

UFC lightweight Melvin Guillard (21-7-2 MMA, 4-3 UFC), who briefly left the organization after back-to-back first-round submission losses, will return to the UFC to fight Dennis Siver (11-5 MMA, 1-2 UFC) at UFC 86.

Melvin Guillard earned a unanimous-decision victory over Eric Regan (9-9) in a Rage in the Cage event last month and now set to return to the UFC against Siver.

Dennis Siver is the 29-year-old fighter had been booked to take on Guillard. The German made his octagon debut at UFC 70 and suffered an 81-second submission loss to Jess Liaudin.

Siver bounced back for a second-round knockout of Naoyuki Kotani at UFC 75 before a unanimous-decision loss to Gray Maynard earlier this year at UFC Fight Night 12.
