Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has been keeping Donald Cerrone busy since transitioning from his old World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) stomping grounds, this time taking on Charles Oliveira on the UFC on Versus 5 fight card this Sunday night (Aug. 14, 2011) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Cerrone, who actually replaced an injured John Makdessi on the card, has been riding dirty through the UFC lightweight division since making the jump from the now defunct WEC promotion earlier this year.
So why is he the +130 underdog against "Do Bronx?"
Oliveira, a -150 favorite, is 14-1 overall and has 13 wins by way of stoppage, having recently defeated Nik Lentz via submission following an illegal knee (it was later ruled a no contest) at UFC on Versus 4.
His only loss came at the hands of surging 155-pound contender Jim Miller earlier this year, but the oddsmakers still think he'll be the better man in "Brew City."
Anyone out there agree?
Donald Cerrone (+130) vs. Charles Oliveira (-150) at UFC on Versus 5. Who ya' got and why?
