Most MMA fans were less than thrilled to hear Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva would get first crack at Cain Velasquez’s (pictured) UFC heavyweight crown, particularly since Velasquez already throttled the Brazilian less than a year ago. The rematch won’t even be close, they professed. Well, the Gambling Gods seem to agree with the masses. The powers that be have pegged Velasquez as a whopping 6.5-to-1 odds-on favorite to steamroll Bigfoot. Silva, on the other hand, is more than a 4-to-1 longshot to dethrone Velasquez. The 265-pounders collide May 25 at UFC 160. MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the shootout. Here are the early wagering lines Velasquez vs. Bigfoot II (Courtesy of BetUS): Favorite (-) Underdog (+) Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva +425 Cain Velasquez -650 Gambling 101: If you bet $100 on Silva and he is victorious, you win $425 If you bet $650 on Velasquez and he is victorious, you win $100
