Are you afraid of "Spiders?"
The oddsmakers certainly are, making UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva the -240 favorite for his main event title fight against division number one contender (and +190 underdog) Vitor Belfort at UFC 126: "Silva vs. Belfort" on Feb. 5 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
That shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone in the fight game, considering the lanky Brazilian has won 12 straight bouts for the world's largest fight promotion since his 2006 debut.
If that web is too tangled to unweave, may I present to you the man he dethroned in just his second UFC fight to capture the 185-pound strap, former middleweight "Ace" Rich Franklin.
Despite a size and strength advantage, the original "Ultimate Fighter" is dogged with a +140 line.
But that's not all.
Here are the latest UFC 126 odds and betting lines (- = favorite; + = underdog):
