Frank Mir (Pictured) has exuded nothing but confidence heading into Saturday’s shootout against heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos. According to the Gambling Gods, he has absolutely no reason to feel so self-assured.

“Cigano” is an overwhelming 5.5-to-1 odds-on favorite to dispose of Mir and retain his belt in his first title defense. Mir, on the other hand, checks in as nearly a 4-to-1 long shot.

MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts tomorrow’s festivities. The pay-per-view broadcast begins live at 10PM ET/7PM PT.
