UFC 64 Octagon Odds and event predictions

What are these two smiling about?
Less than 24 hours from now, the UFC will have crowned a new lighweight champion and possibly a new middleweight champion.

Even though UFC 64: "Unstoppable" doesn't have the star power of a Matt Hughes-Georges St. Pierre and Tim Sylvia-Jeff Monson card, it is shaping up to be a very entertaining evening.

Yesterday, all 18 fighters gathered at the the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the official weigh-in. Feel free to check it out right here if you want to see for yourself.

So who's going to win?

Sherdog provides some good background and probable outcomes. Here's the short version:

-- Silva by TKO
-- Sherk by TKO
-- Fitch by TKO late in the fight
-- Kongo by TKO
-- Fisher by TKO
-- Jardine by TKO
-- Okami by TKO
-- Guida by submission
-- Pellegrino by submission

That's a lot of TKOs. Obviously, some of these fights are going to go the distance or end early via submission. However, it is a solid analysis of how tonight's fights may go down.

So, who you ask, are the favorites? Here is the latest line from betonfighting.com:

Rich Franklin -185
Anderson Silva +165

Sean Sherk -310
Kenny Florian +260

Jon Fitch -310
Kuniyoshi Hironaka +260

Cheick Kongo -450
Carmelo Marrero +370

Spencer Fisher -435
Dan Lauzon +365

Keith Jardine -530
Mike Nickels +430

Yushin Okami -130
Kalib Starnes +110

Clay Guida -275
Justin James +235

Kurt Pellegrino -285
Junior Assuncao +235

In case you're wondering, the negative sign (-) means the fighter is a favorite, while the plus sign (+) indicates an underdog.
