Rory MacDonald vs Mike Pyle odds for UFC 133 fight on Aug. 6

What are the odds that Rory MacDonald beats Mike Pyle on Aug. 6?

According to the bookies, they're pretty good. "The Waterboy," who made a splash in the betting lines at -280, will square off against "Quicksand," who sank to +240 for their Saturday night scrap at UFC 133: "Evans vs. Ortiz II" in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

And don't be surprised to see the winner inching their way into the 170-pound title hunt.

MacDonald was last seen chin-checking (and absolutely wrecking) Nate Diaz, doing him dirty back at UFC 129 on April 30 in Toronto. That impressive victory was enough to erase the memory of his late-round fallout against Carlos Condit in June 2010.

At just 21-years-old and already 11-1 in his budding career, the Tristar product is getting his chance to jump up the welterweight ladder by disposing of a surging veteran.

Pyle has been in the game for over a decade, amassing a 21-7-1 record with every promotion under the sun. His latest stint with UFC has seen him come away victorious his last three times out to the cage.

His most recent win, over Ricardo Almeida at UFC 128, sent the "Big Dog" into retirement and "Quicksand" on the fast track to bigger and better things.

If he defeats a fast-rising prospect like MacDonald, the sky's the limit. Anyone think he defies the odds and gets it done in "The City of Brotherly Love?"
