FanPost Betting Game Preview: UFC 134 Rio





Season 10 of the Betting Game will have it's finale this Saturday night as the Octagon returns to Brazil. Anderson Silva will defend his Middleweight Title against someone who is strong. Yep, that is how Yushin Okami has been marketed heading into the biggest fight of his career. "Strong". That is it. Nothing highlighting his strong wrestling based attack has been mentioned. I think this is beyond stupid because Chael Sonnen came within 2 minutes of being the new champion using WRESTLING! Regardless, The Spider will be looking to make his 10th successful defense of the UFC Middleweight belt. That is pure insanity.

The co main event is Shogun v. Griffin II. Rua will be looking for redemption not only from his 2007 submission loss to Forrest, but also from the complete dismantling he suffered at the hands of Light Heavyweight overlord, Jon "Bones" Jones. Forrest is looking for his 3rd straight victory and is hoping to get himself back into the title picture at 205.


Let's get down to business.

Sorry about the lack of great visuals. My computer dropped a deuce02 on me the other day and I have yet to go get a new one. Also, Team BE, this is our last chance to get a victory and avoid Mania running the table on us. So please, make your picks and make them good.
