Found December 29, 2011 on Obsessed With Sports:
A UFC PPV on a Friday? OK, I guess. Why? Well, last Saturday was Christmas Eve. This coming Saturday is New Year’s Eve. There was little choice if the UFC wanted to do a true “end of the year” show. It’s tradition — so they made it happen. So I’m not going to complain. The UFC might be losing revenue due to the calendar, though. Fan are used to having these things on a Saturday night. Regardless, we’ve got fights tomorrow night. I’ll take a gambling point of view for UFC 141. Shall we begin? We start with the “upset special” — and this is a good one, potentially. Nam Phan vs. Jim Hettes Nam Phan is a rather large -230 favorite. This means you can get Hettes at around +180. Phan only has 3 fights in the octagon. He is 1-2. His victory comes over Leonard Garcia, who also beat him in his UFC debut. I’m just not sure how this warrants a -230 number. Hettes, on the other hand, is 9-0 (1-0 in the UFC). As more of a play against Phan, than one on Hettes, I would take the underdog here. Pic
