That may be one of many reasons why Nate Diaz is a -185 favorite heading into his UFC on FOX 7 fight against "The Punk," which takes place on April 20, 2013 from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
Thomson is a +150 underdog, according to our fiscal friends at Best Fight Odds.
Diaz (16-8) is coming off a lopsided unanimous decision loss to current UFC lightweight kingpin Ben Henderson back in December. His loss to "Smooth" snapped a three-fight winning streak since his return to the 155-pound division after suffering two consecutive defeats at welterweight.
Thomson (19-5) meanwhile, has gone an even 3-3 in his last six outings and was last seen mixing it up with Melendez in what many believed was a controversial split decision loss to "El Nino" at the Strikeforce: "Barnett vs. Cormier" show last May.
Anyone think he's getting "Punk'd" in the betting lines?
