UFC on Versus 4 is set to go down this Sunday night (June 26, 2011) live on the cable television network emanating from the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA.
"Meathead" lumbers in as a hefty -275 favorite.
That leaves Morecraft as a +215 underdog despite having twice the experience and a 100-percent finishing rate. Mitrione has gone to the scorecards once in his UFC career.
