With the Holidays inundating most people’s schedules, it’s understandable why most have put “Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Masvidal” on the back burner. Well, the Gambling Gods know exactly how to make tonight’s show a priority.

If some underdog action is what you seek, the card’s two featured scraps showcases a pair of significant longshots. Jorge Masvidal (Pictured) is a 2.5-to-1 underdog to beat lightweight champ Gilbert Melendez in the night’s main attraction.

That line is nothing compared to the long odds Hiroko Yamanaka is facing. She’s a 7.5-to-1 dark horse to dethrone Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos to capture the women’s featherweight crown in the co-main event.

The Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California hosts Saturday’s festivities.

Here are the available wagering lines for tonight (Courtesy of BetUS):

Herman Terrado vs. Chris Brown (N/A)
