Get a detailed breakdown of the betting lines for UFC 198, which is set to hit Arena da Baixada in Curitiba, Brazil, this weekend (Sat., May 14, 2016), including best bets, underdogs, favorites, and much more!
Finally, a breath of fresh air.
The stagnant Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight division gets a fresh kick in the rear this Saturday evening (May 14, 2016) when division champion Fabricio Werdum squares off with the surging Stipe Miocic in the former’s native Brazil, headlining the absolutely loaded UFC 198.
The pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event inside Arena da Baixada in Curitiba pits grappling legend Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza against Vitor Belfort. UFC 198 will also feature Cris “Cyborg’s” Octagon debut and “Shogun” Rua vs. Corey Anderson, if that tickles your fancy.
