Mark Hunt vs Ben Rothwell odds for UFC 135 fight on Sept. 24


Former PRIDE and K-1 star Mark Hunt (6-7) will get a chance to string together consecutive wins for the first time in over five years when he takes on former IFL and Affliction stud Ben Rothwell (31-7) at the upcoming UFC 135 event scheduled for this Saturday night (Sept. 24) in Denver, Colorado.

Hunt snapped a six-fight losing streak at the expense of Chris Tuscherer's chin when he bent the "Crowbar" at UFC 127: "Penn vs. Fitch" back on Feb. 27 in Sydney, Australia.

The win pulled him to an even 1-1 inside the Octagon following a debut loss to Sean McCorkle (armbar) at UFC 119: "Mir vs. Cro Cop" in Sept. 2010.

The oddsmakers weren't impressed and have pegged the "Super Samoan" as the +260 underdog in "Mile High City."

Rothwell was lit up by Cain Velasquez in the second round of their heavyweight tilt at UFC 104: "Machida vs. Shogun" back in October 2009. "Big Ben" was able to rebound from his lopsided debut loss to secure a three round unanimous decision over Gilbert Yvel at UFC 115: "Liddell vs. Franklin" the following June.

Since then, the well-traveled veteran has been riding the bench after tearing up his knee but now looks ready to return to the cage this weekend.

And he'll do so as the -340 favorite.

Any Maniacs out there like what they see? Or do these betting lines look unbalanced? Who's plunking down some coin on the titanic tilt?

Sound off!
