After UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson got hurt and his Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale title defense was canceled, the UFC had to scramble for a replacement fight that fans would find credible enough to headline a card. They found it in the bantamweight division with former WEC champ Urijah Faber facing off with sometimes-teammate Scott Jorgensen. The betting line for the bout dropped over the weekend, and it should come as a surprise to no one that Jorgensen is a decided underdog. Here's the line (via BestFightOdds):
Faber (27-6) picked up a big submission win over Ivan Menjivar in his last bout at UFC 157, and has essentially set himself up as probably the best bantamweight not wearing a title at the moment. Jorgensen (14-6) picked up a submission win over John Albert in the last second of the first round at UFC on Fox 5 in December. He's 3-2 in the UFC overall.
I don't think it takes a rocket surgeon to figure out that there's no point in betting on this fight. Jorgensen and Faber are similar fighters, but Faber's just better. Still, betting on anything in the -400 range is just a recipe for disaster, especially in MMA. Spend your money elsewhere.
