UFC on Versus 4 is set to go down this Sunday night (June 26, 2011) live on the cable television network emanating from the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA.

In main card action, Matt Mitrione looks to continue his undefeated rise through the 265-pound ranks when he takes on the once-beaten Christian Morecraft.

"Meathead" lumbers in as a hefty -275 favorite.

That leaves Morecraft as a +215 underdog despite having twice the experience and a 100-percent finishing rate. Mitrione has gone to the scorecards once in his UFC career.

Are the oddsmakers calling it like they see it? Or playing it safe? Take a look at how these two heavyweights stack up after the jump and decide for yourself.
