Vitor Belfort vs Yoshihiro Akiyama odds for UFC 133 fight on Aug. 6

How sexy is the betting line for the UFC 133 co-main event?

Well, that depends on who you're picking. Vitor Belfort (19-9), who will throw down against Yoshihiro Akiyama (13-3) on the main card of the "Evans vs. Ortiz II" pay-per-view (PPV) on Aug. 6 in Philadelphia, PA, is a "Phenomenal" -300 favorite.

That leaves "Sexyama" an appealing +250 underdog.

The Brazilian is the odds-on favorite despite suffering from foot-and-mouth disease thanks to Anderson Silva and his fight-ending, Steven Seagal-inspired, front kick back at UFC 126.

His "Spider" bite snapped a win streak of five that included four brutal (T)KO stoppages.

Akiyama will enter the cage on a two-fight skid, having dropped consecutive bouts to middleweight mashers Chris Leben and Michael Bisping, respectively.

However, the former K-1 bad boy has earned himself "Fight of the Night" honors in all three of his Octagon appearances. That's a track record that speaks for itself.

And with the speedy -- and powerful -- hands possessed by Belfort, a fourth straight bonus award isn't out of the picture. Excited?

You should be.
