Dominick Cruz Opens as Big Favorite Over Demetrious Johnson, Munoz Favored Over Leben

via <a href=""></a>

The betting lines have dropped for the main events of UFC on Versus 6 and UFC 138, and neither is a huge surprise. Dominick Cruz will face Demetrious Johnson for the UFC bantamweight title in the main event of UFC on Versus 6 on October 1st, and he will enter the fight as a heavy favorite. Here's the line:

Dominick Cruz -425
Demetrious Johnson +325

Cruz is coming off a thrilling win over Urijah Faber at UFC 132 and has defended his WEC/UFC belt three times now. Johnson is coming of a close decision win over former WEC bantamweight champion Miguel Torres at UFC 130 in May.

Meanwhile, the main event of UFC 138, the first card of the year in the UK, features a main event between middleweights Mark Munoz and Chris Leben. Here's the line for that one:

Mark Munoz -205
Chris Leben +165

Munoz is currently riding a three-fight win streak and most recently defeated Demian Maia by decision at UFC 131. Leben picked up a quick knockout victory over legend Wanderlei Silva at UFC 132 and has won four out of his last five. One thing that may affect your wagering is that this bout will be the first five-round non-title fight in UFC history.
