On the episode of MMA Odds Breaker below, MMA Oddsmaker Nick Kalikas, Damon Martin from MMAWeekly.com and Jon Luther from MMAFA.tv all lean to Cruz to win the fights prize, which is the UFC Bantamweight Championship belt:
At first the opening UFC Betting Odds on this fight was an even -115 pickem for each fight, but now the current lines are as follows:
Urijah Faber PK +118
Dominick Cruz PK -148
It looks like most of the public is betting on Dominick Cruz, the current champ, even though Faber beat Cruz in the very first round of a WEC Featherweight title match in 2007. You really can’t blame people for taking Cruz on this one as he is on an 8 win streak. He is also 6 years younger than Faber, is 2 inches taller and has a 3inch reach advantage. Cruz holds a 17-1 record and if you haven’t guessed it Urijah is the only person to beat him in a MMA Pro bout.

UFC 132 Dominick Cruz vs Urijah Faber Betting Pick: So who’s my pick to win?! I’m going for Faber the underdog. The California Kid is a NCAA Division I wrestler and has a Brown Belt in BJJ, I see him out classing Cruz in wrestling and on the ground. Cruz has improved his striking but Faber has a strong chin, I mean, have you seen his chin? It’s huge!
