Jim Miller vs Ben Henderson odds for UFC on Versus 5 on Aug. 14 in Milwaukee

Surging lightweight Jim Miller will try to stake his claim as division number one contender (again) when he throws hands against Ben Henderson at the upcoming UFC on Versus 5 event this Sunday night (Aug. 14, 2011) at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Miller has torn through the incredibly deep 155-pound division, head-splitting and submitting his way to seven consecutive victories inside the Octagon. In fact, the AMA Fight Club product has lost just twice in his entire 22-fight career: to lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and current number one contender Gray Maynard.

That makes him the odds on favorite in "Brew City" at -150.

His quest for gold continues against a former WEC champion looking to earn a title shot of his own who's done enough in recent performances to keep the oddsmakers wary of his resiliency.

Henderson is a "Smooth" +130 underdog.

"Bendo" was close to earning himself the top contender status Miller has been chasing for so long in his debut with the world's largest fight promotion -- until Anthony Pettis decided it was "Showtime" at WEC 53 and went Mortal Kombat on his face.

Liu Kang would have been proud.

Henderson went three rounds with Mark Bocek at UFC 129 back on April 30 and came out having not only survived, but largely dominating one of the better submission artists in the game today. His performance went a long way in erasing the painful memory of that loss to Pettis. But will Miller bring it all crashing back on Aug. 14?

Jim Miller (-150) vs. Ben Henderson (+130) at UFC on Versus 5. Who ya' got and why?
