UFC 131 odds: Kenny Florian vs Diego Nunes

New, comments

When Kenny Florian stated his intention to drop down to featherweight, he said he believed he was just one or two fights away from a 145-pound title shot.

The oddsmakers seem to be in agreement.

"Kenflo" is the -300 favorite for his upcoming featherweight debut against Diego Nunes, which takes place on the main card of the UFC 131 pay-per-view broadcast this Saturday night (June 11) in Vancouver.

"The Gun" was loaded with a +250 underdog line.

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

145 lbs.: Kenny "KenFlo" Florian (13-5) vs. Diego "The Gun" Nunes (16-1)

Backgrounds (last five fights):


Record: 3-2
Notable wins: Easy submission wins over Clay Guida and Takanori Gomi
Notable losses: Lopsided losses to Gray Maynard and BJ Penn
Strengths: Well rounded, great cardio, cerebral attack
Weaknesses: Already small at 155, hard to imagine he'll have any power in his first cut to 145


Record: 4-1
Notable wins: Outpointed Mike Brown and Raphael Assuncao
Notable losses: Unanimous decision loss to LC Davis
Strengths: Great training camp, balanced fighter, momentum on his side
Weaknesses: His last six fights have all been decisions
