Bad news for those who were looking to take advantage of one of the only sweet underdog bets on the card: Chris Horodecki has been removed from Affliction’s Day of Reckoning card with a fucked up back. It looks like he was planning on fighting through the problems but he flunked his pre-fight medicals. That leaves Dan Lauzon without an opponent and removes the best edge off the card … Dan at (+190) was a good bet indeed.
Andrei Arlovski (+235) vs Fedor Emelianenko (-375)
Gilbert Yvel (+375) vs Josh Barnett (-650)
Vitor Belfort (+140) vs Matt Lindland (-180)
Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou (+130) vs Renato Sobral (-170)
Vladimir Matyushenko (-115) vs Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (-115)
Paul Buentello (-175) vs Kiril Sidelnikov (+145)
Jay Hieron (-300) vs Jason High (+220)
LC Davis (-270) vs Bao Quach (+210)
If you’re obsessed with underdogs, I guess you could make an argument for small plays on Yvel and Arlovski. I’m putting a few bucks on Arlovski just for shits and giggles, and also a bit on Sokoudjou because Babalu has looked like garbage lately. I also like Kiril Sidelnikov’s chances against Paul Buentello … I think that’s one where the odds are wrong and Kiril should be the favorite. Buentello’s last win was a pretty tame decision against Gary Goodridge, a guy Paul should have smashed if he was on point.
