UFC 130 odds: Miguel Torres vs Demetrious Johnson

via cdn2.sbnation.com

Former WEC Bantamweight Champion Miguel Torres will try to continue his climb back up the 135-pound mountain when he takes on Demetrious Johnson at the upcoming UFC 130: "Rampage vs. Hamill" event tomorrow night (May 28, 2011) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

With over 40 professional fights, the former division kingpin is currently the -135 favorite.

The lines are closer than many pundits expected them to be but anyone who saw Johnson dismantle "Kid" Yamamoto at UFC 126: "Silva vs. Belfort" earlier this year knows that speed kills -- and "Mighty Mouse" has some lethal hands.

Johnson has closed the gap and now sits as a +105 underdog.
