We're less than a week away.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will offer a title fight on free television for the first time since Sept. 2007 when bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz puts his strap on the line against Demetrious Johnson at UFC on Versus 6, which goes down this Saturday night (Oct. 1, 2011) in Washington D.C.
After Urijah Faber -- and more than a few fans -- campaigned for an immediate rubber match after Cruz went the distance with "The California Kid" at UFC 132, the decision was made to forgo that option in favor of a fresh challenger.
The oddsmakers, however, don't think the "Mouse" will be "Mighty" enough to save the day, pegging Johnson a +350 underdog for this weekend's extravaganza.
"The Dominator" currently stands as the -450 favorite.
That's not necessarily a knock on Johnson, who seemingly came from out of nowhere to quickly establish himself as a legitimate threat to the bantamweight throne.
Though he's won his last four fights against highly respectable competition -- namely Norifumi Yamamoto and Miguel Torres -- and fits the bill as the most credible challenger to Cruz, the champion just continues to look better every time out.
Can the speedy "Mighty Mouse" culminate his incredible rise to the top and become a UFC title holder in just his third fight inside the Octagon?
The bookies don't think so ... do you?
