Dan Henderson vs Rashad Evans Odds

Published on June 2nd, 2013 12:39 pm EST
On June 15th, 2013, Dan Henderson will take on "Suga" Rashad Evans in the main event of UFC 161 in Winnipeg.

Rashad Evans vs Dan Henderson was originally supposed to serve as the co-main event of the card, but due to Renan Barao's injury, the original main event of Barao vs Wineland was scrapped. Instead of trying to sign a new fight, the UFC decided on pushing Evans/Henderson up to the main event spot.

Both Evans and Henderson are coming off of losses, and both men desperately want a win on June 15th.

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

Rashad Evans, -125
Dan Henderson, -105

So, according to these odds, a successful $125 wager on Rashad Evans would yield a total profit of $100, while a successful $105 wager on Henderson would return a total profit of $100.

In short - this fight is essentially a coin flip, with Henderson being just a VERY slight favorite.


Both men are strong wrestlers, which means that this fight will probably be contested almost entirely on the feet.

Rashad Evans will be looking to use his quickness against the older Henderson, while "Hendo" will very likely try to slow Evans down with his clenching. Of course, Henderson will always be looking to land his patented "H-Bomb" on Evans' chin to end the fight at any second.


This should be a great fight between two of the bigger names in the UFC's Light Heavyweight division.
