UFC 144 is set to take place in Japan this Saturday and the lightweight belt is one the line. Frankie Edgar will have to defend his belt once again, this time against Ben Henderson who has won all three of his UFC fights and is 15-2 in his MMA career. This fight is going to be a crazy one that is likely to go the distance. Like in all title fights there are plenty of betting options to wager on in this Henderson vs Edgar fight.
Frankie Edgar -130 (5Dimes.com)
Ben Henderson +110 (5Dimes.com)
Edgar is a slight favourite in this one, which he should be seeing as he has defended his belt three times and has only lost once in his MMA career. Edgar is a smaller 155 pounder than most in the weight class, but his quick feet and hands, as well as his heart has made him the champ.
Henderson is bigger and likely a better wrestler, so it will be interesting to see how this fight progresses. Henderson definitely has the skills to beat Edgar, which is why he is only a very small underdog in this title fight.
Round Over/Under 4.5
Under +245 (5Dimes.com)
Over -295 (Bookmaker.eu)
As you can see by these odds this fight is expected to go to decision. Frankie Edgar has never been submitted or knocked out in his MMA career and for Henderson’s lone tap out you’d have to go back to his 3rd professional fight way back in 2007. Henderson’s 3 UFC wins (last 3 fights) have been by decision and Edgar usually wins by decisions as well having 8 of his last 11 wins coming from decision and that doesn’t even include his draw with Gray Maynard two fights ago. This fight has a good chance of going the distance, but both fights do have the power and technique to finish the fight if the opportunity presents itself.
