Chael Sonnen is as confident as can be entering Saturday’s heavily-hyped rematch against UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva (Pictured). Unfortunately for Chael P., the Gambling Gods don’t think he’ll be leaving Las Vegas with the hardware.

Silva remains a 3-to-1 odds-on favorite to post his 10th successful title defense in tonight’s main event. Uncle Chael, on the other hand, checks in as a +220 underdog to dethrone “The Spider.”

Speaking of longshots, Tito Ortiz is nearly a 2.5-to-1 underdog in his trilogy with Forrest Griffin.

Tonight’s show takes place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
