Once again, the gambling gods of the mixed martial arts realm have spoken.

The odds for UFC 168 are in, and they’re not that surprising.

Anderson Silva (-165)
Chris Weidman (+135)

Ronda Rousey (-800)
Miesha Tate (+550)

Chris Leben (+250)

Gleison Tibau (-155)
Michael Johnson (+125)

Dennis Siver (-260)
Manny Gamburyan (+200)

Siyar Bahadurzada (-150)
John Howard (+120)

Prelim Card  (Online, 7 p.m. ET)

William Macario (+145)

Robert Peralta (-200)
Estevan Payan (+160)

Apparently Weidman didn’t do enough to convince the naysayers that he’s better than Anderson Silva, because the Brazilian is still favored to win in their rematch. Weidman will have to prove to the world that his UFC 162 victory over the legend was not a fluke.

It’s not surprising that Rousey is the favorite in her rematch against bitter rival and fellow TUF coach Miesha Tate. Not only is Rousey undefeated, but all of her victories have come by first round submission. You can call that impressive to say the least. No opponents have thus far been able to expose any holes in her game. If Tate wins, she’ll be the first person ever to snatch the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship from her.

MMA veteran Josh Barnet will look to move up the UFC heavyweight ladder as he takes on a giant of a man, Travis Browne. Browne is big, strong, athletic, and has raw talent, but he lacks experience. That’s probably why the odds favor Barnett; he’s been in the fight game for quite some time. In addition to his years of experience, “The Warmaster” is arguably the most technical fighter in the heavyweight division, and most gamblers feel like that’ll give him a significant advantage over his larger opponent.

UFC 168 will take place on December 28th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
