With next to no title implications at stake for Mauricio “Shogun” Rua or Chael Sonnen in tonight’s featured attraction, let’s take a closer look at the card’s co-main event between Alistair Overeem (pictured) and Travis Brown. A closer look at the gambling lines for the co-main event, that is. Overeem is nearly a 2.5-to-1 odds-on favorite to beat Browne, while “Hapa” is nearly a 2-to-1 underdog against the former heavyweight top contender. It is believed Overeem could earn next dibs at the 265-pound crown with an impressive victory, but UFC president Dana White took his trademark “we’ll see” stance when probed this week. TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts hosts the scraps. Here are the lines for tonight’s fights: Preliminary Card: James Vick +150 Ramsey Nijem -180 Cody Donovan +220 Ovince St. Preux -300 Cole Miller -105 Manny Gamburyan -125 Daniel Pineda +210 Diego Brandao -280 Steven Siler +160 Mike Brown -200 Max Holloway +210 Conor McGregor -280 Brad Pickett +175 Michael McDonald -220 Main Card: Michael Johnson +200 Joe Lauzon -260 John Howard +325 Uriah Hall -450 Mike Pyle +125 Matt Brown -155 Yuri Alcantara +200 Urijah Faber -260 Travis Browne +180 Alistair Overeem -230 Mauricio “Shogun” Rua -115 Chael Sonnen -115
