After watching middleweight king Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman (pictured) touch lips at Friday’s weigh-ins – BTW, Weidman clarified that it’s only kissing if you pucker up – who isn’t pumped to watch UFC 162? Obviously, Silva will be entering the Octagon as the odds-on favorite. However, “The Spider’s” line has been dipping quite a bit. As of right now, Silva is a -230 favorite to retain his title. Weidman checks in as nearly a 2-to-1 underdog. Although, these lines will be fluctuating quite a bit until the cage door slams shut. UFC 162 takes place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Here are the wagering lines for tonight: Preliminary Card: David Mitchell +425 Mike Pierce -650 Brian Melancon +220 Seth Baczynski -300 Dave Herman +190 Gabriel Gonzaga -240 Rafaello Oliveira +400 Edson Barboza -600 Kazuki Tokudome +160 Norman Parke -200 Andrew Craig -160 Chris Leben +130 Main Card: Dennis Siver +180 Cub Swanson -230 Tim Boetsch -105 Mark Munoz -125 Roger Gracie +115 Tim Kennedy -145 Charles Oliveira +375 Frank Edgar -550 Chris Weidman +180 Anderson Silva -230
