Tito Ortiz (-550) Rich Franklin (-350) - (-193)
Tito Ortiz vs. Patrick Cote
Cote looks to use his impressive striking to dominate the stand up, but Tito is a solid wrestler and will likely bring him down and resort to the ground-and-pound that made him successful in the first place. He is over matched and was preparing for a lower caliber opponent (Marvin Eastman) just one week ago. Ortiz wins via TKO ground and pound.
Rich Franklin vs. Jorge Rivera
Rivera has the more dangerous hands but the submissions and overall game go to Franklin with his submissions and striking skills. Franklin wins via submission.
|Tito Ortiz (-550) Rich Franklin (-350) - Parlay Bet|
Tito Ortiz defeats Patrick Cote via 3 round Decision (unanimous) (30–27, 30–26, 30–26).
Rich Franklin defeats Jorge Rivera via Submission (Armbar) at 4:28 of round 3.
Georges St-Pierre (+250)
Matt Hughes vs. Georges St-Pierre
Georges has been on fire to this point and should be to catch Hughes off guard at some point whether it be striking or on the land. Georges is the better athlete and well more rounded and has the skills to win in any way. Hughes has never faced a fighter as skilled as GSP and he is quite underestimating GSP. GSP wins via TKO.
