Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers will be the most bet on sporting event of the year. However, that doesn’t mean tomorrow’s big game is the only action available this weekend.
UFC 156 goes down tonight in Las Vegas and there are plenty of investment options available. The show features a featherweight scrap between champion Jose Aldo and former lightweight champ Frank Edgar (Pictured).
As customary with most of Edgar’s championship affairs, he’ll be entering the Octagon as the underdog. “The Answer” checks in at +175, while Aldo is pegged as a -220 odds-on favorite to retain his title.
Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the festivities.

The disappointment that was the match between Rashad Evans and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is exactly what was needed prior to the fierce showdown that was Aldo vs. Edgar.
Don't confuse this. Ideally all of the fights at UFC 156 would have been outstanding. However, having a letdown (a unanimous decision won by "Little Nog") just before the UFC Featherweight Title bout...
The UFC dubbed Saturday’s scrap between featherweight king Jose Aldo (Pictured) and former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar a “Superfight.” According to two of the three judges sitting cageside, it was a lopsided fight.
