 UFC Betting – Faber Makes Long-Awaited UFC Debut Saturday
posted 6 years ago

WEC Poster Child Urijah Faber will finally enter a UFC Octagon on Saturday night in a UFC Bantamweight showdown against former WEC Bantamweight champ, Eddie Wineland. Faber looked good in his first fight after dropping a weight class and now he’ll get a chance to prove that he belongs at 135 in front of an amped up, sold out UFC crowd.

UFC 128 – Rua vs. Jones

Date: Saturday, March 19, 2011

Venue: The Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey

Broadcast: Live on PPV at 10:00 p.m. E.T.

Urijah Faber (24-4): -450

Eddie Wineland (18-6-1): +325 UFC Odds

Urijah Faber brings his share of hype into his Bantamweight battle and the UFC Betting public has not been shy to throw down on the California Kid. Faber may be one of the most athletic fighters today but has had mixed results as of late inside the Octagon. Since owning the Featherweight division and putting together an impressive 13 fight win streak, Faber has fallen on hard times, losing three of his last six fights.

Faber looked good in his Bantamweight debut - truth be told, 135 pounds is a better fit for Faber – he was always a small 145 and is now a big 135! He is an accomplished striker with heavy hands, great wrestling, submissions, speed and overall athleticism. Faber also has some extra motivation ahead of this fight – a war of words has already broken out between him and current Bantamweight Champ – Dominick Cruz. Let’s hope that Faber isn’t looking past Mr. Wineland – before Faber gets to Cruz, he has to beat a very tough Eddie Wineland! UFC

Eddie Wineland is a former UFC Betting bantamweight champion – he knows what it takes to be at the pinnacle of his weight division. He, like Faber has a seemingly endless gas tank and is very good in the stand up department. He is OK on the ground but has the experience, heart and ruggedness to be competitive anywhere that this fight happens to go. UFC Betting

Wineland should be able to hang with Faber on his feet – he has demonstrated an incredible chin and a willingness to take a shot in order to land one. If Wineland is to have a chance, the fight will have to remain on its feet. Although Wineland has serviceable wrestling he will certainly be outclassed by Faber on the mat. If there is a hole in Wineland’s game, it is his submission defense and over half of Faber’s victories have come by submission.

UFC Betting Outlook:

This fight will likely be closer than most think. Something tells me that Faber is looking past Wineland and is already planning for his inevitable fight with Bantamweight champ, Dominick Cruz. If the fight stays standing, Wineland could inflict some damage but the likelihood of Faber dragging this battle to the mat is very high. Once on the ground, Faber has a huge advantage and that is where the fight will end. It won’t be a huge pay day but it will be a pay day nonetheless.
