UFC-MMA: Rua v Sonnen, August 18th 2013: The odds and our tips

Mauricio Rua v Chael Sonnen head to head odds
Fighter Odds
Mauricio Rua $1.96 Bet Now
Chael Sonnen $1.78 Bet Now

Chael Sonnen won’t be used to getting the billing as favourite – he’s much more often cast in the underdog role. But he’s at $1.78 to beat Rua on the 18th August, and it’s a win that many will feel is well within his grasp. He likely won’t be staying in the 205 bracket, but if this is his last fight before he drops down, then he’ll want to leave on a win. But will ‘Shogun’ let Sonnen have his own way? He’s at $1.96, but there are more than a few people backing him – a lot will depend on the shape he’s in, but if he comes to the fight, then this could be a compelling contest that goes the distance...

There are some tempting markets on this one already. Besides the odds you can see above, take a look at $1.40 for the fight to last at least 3 rounds, where you’ll get $2.75 for it to be over before that. Sonnen’s best tactic will likely be to smother Rua, and look to win it on points, and if you’re backing that outcome, then you’re looking at odds of $2.35. The bookies at Sportsbet are giving the same odds of $1.83 both for the fight to go the distance, and for it not to. Which way do you think it will go?
