Name: Alexander Volkov
Opponent: Timothy Johnson
Odds: +113 (bet $100 to win $113)
So, I said before that the oddsmakers love to overhype the Bellator imports. After all, look at Marcin Held – a near 2-to-1 favorite in a losing effort against stalwart Diego Sanchez. However, I have to eat my words now. Bellator import and former heavyweight champion, Alexander Volkov makes his UFC debut as a slight underdog. Not that Timothy Johnson is not a tough out, but Volkov has faced tougher opponents in the past. Should he stay on his feet in this one, I like his odds to outstrike the slower Johnson.
