UFC 161 odds: Dan Henderson and Rashad Evans deadlocked at -115 for Canadian clash

Scott Cunningham

Speaking of odds, what are the chances we see a finish in this fight?

The stakes have never been higher.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will eliminate one top light heavyweight from the "mix" when Dan Henderson takes on Rashad Evans at the upcoming UFC 161 pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on June 15, 2013.

Who is the odds-on favorite to win the fight?

Nobody. Well, at least not in the eyes of the bookies (see their breakdown here), who have both fighters deadlocked at -115. I'm sure our fight fans would have a thing or two to say about that, despite the fact that both competitors have seen better days.

Henderson is coming off a dreadful split decision loss to Lyoto Machida in the UFC 157 co-main event last month in Anaheim, California. "Hendo" spent most of the 15-minute bout trying to hunt down the elusive "Dragon," but the Brazilian stuck-and-moved his way to victory, punching his title shot ticket for sometime later in 2013 in the process.

We think.

Evans, meanwhile, dropped a lackluster decision to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 156, allegedly "losing the desire and drive to compete," according to UFC President White. "Suga" chalked up the puzzling performance to a "mental issue," vowing to return stronger in his next appearance.

The bookies are not convinced. Are you?
