Werdum vs Nogueira Odds

Fabricio Werdum will square off against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the main event of UFC on Fuel TV 10: Werdum vs Nogueira this Saturday. The card will be hosted by the Paulo Sarsate Gymnasium in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil.

This fight will see two of the Heavyweight divisions top grapplers face off against each other. Both men are known for their superior Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skills, which means that this fight will almost certainly be fought almost entirely on the feet.

Let's take a look at the current betting odds for this fight:

Fabricio Werdum, -325
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, +250

So, according to these odds, you would need to wager $325 on Fabricio Werdum in order to win $100 back, while a successful $100 wager on Nogueira would return a total profit of $250.


Werdum is currently in the midst of a two fight winning streak that includes wins over Mike Russow and Roy Nelson. Werdum has won five of his last six, and that streak includes wins over Fedor Emelianenko and Antonio Silva. So, in his last six fights, Werdum has wins over Nelson, Emelianenko and Silva. That's impressive.

Nogueira, on the other hand, is 3-3 in his last six fights, including wins over Dave Herman, Brendan Schaub and Randy Couture. Nogueira clearly enjoys fighting in Brazil, however, as he has won his last two fights that have taken place in his home country.


Werdum is the clear favourite to win this fight, but do you bet against Nogueira when he is fighting in Brazil? That's the $64,000 question.
