What: UFC 162 - Anderson Silva vs Chris Weidman (Sunday, July 7th at 2.00 p.m. AEST)
Where: MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas

Well MMA and UFC fans this is the one you've been waiting for.

Anderson 'The Spider' Silva, arguably the greatest fighter of all time vs the challenger in Chris Weidman.

To me this seems to be as lopsided as Black Caviar's campaigns at Caulfield.

Silva goes into the fight undeafeted in the UFC at 16-0 similar to Black Caviar, so why arnt we seeing similar odds with the bookies? Could this be due to the challenger Chris Weidman being born and raised in New York. It seems the american public have jumped the gun at the thought of an American Middle Weight UFC champion. Weidman continues to attract huge public money. Friday you could have taken Weidman for ($3.06) and now he's currently sitting at ($2.86).

This just seems crazy to me.

With 16 consecutive wins and 10 Title defenses Anderson Silva you can currently get Silva at $1.43, which is way over the odds.

Silva is a true champion. He's far too technical for Weidman and lets not forget the greatest knockout artist ever. Experts believe Silva's kryptonite will be Weidmans wrestling base. Well guess what? Silva can prepare for a dime a dozen wrestler like Weidman, but try finding someone that moves like Anderson Silva anywhere on the planet, well that person just doesnt exsist.

Verdict: Anderson Silva is one of a kind and should be paying somewhere around $1.20 at best, but due to public perception of the chalenger Chris Weidman you can get Silva at $1.43 at Australian sportsbooks like LuxBet.
