MMA ODDS AND ENDS FOR MONDAY: OVEREEM VS. BROWNE RUMORED

There’s a heavyweight fight rumored with this summer, and it’s a large one. Based on MMAjunkie.com, former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem is predicted to come back to the cage at UFC 164, which takes place August 31 at Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI. And his rumored competition is none aside from heavyweight banger Travis Browne, though this fight is still far from official. Should it materialize, though, expect this to be the co-main occasion for UFC 164 because it’s definitely among the greatest battles of the summertime. Overeem, who had been shockingly knocked out by Antonio”Bigfoot” Silva at UFC 156, was set to return to action against Junior dos Santos in UFC 160 but had to pull out due to injuries, but healthy, he will seem to get back into title contention by taking out the climbing Browne, who also has a recent reduction to Silva. This is a fairly even matchup but I do favor Browne to win the battle, and I believe he can win it . However, Overeem has all the hype and people support behind him and, although he dropped to”Bigfoot,” I still expect him to start as the favorite in this struggle, perhaps in the -200 range, with all the comeback on Browne being +150. And if that’s the case, then I’ll certainly be recommending a drama on Browne, who’s coming from a KO win over veteran Gabriel Gonzaga. Another wager to target with this fight is going to be that it doesn’t go to decision, as either man has the capacity to knock one another out, so definitely look at making a play on this prop if it is under -300 come fight night. Lauzon vs. Johnson Booked For UFC on FOX Sports 1 The UFC today booked a lightweight bout between Massachusetts native Joe Lauzon and Michael Johnson to the upcoming UFC on FOX Sports 1 card, which takes place August 17 at Boston, MA. The fight will probably be a preliminary card bout. This is an excellent fight between two of the exciting fighters in the UFC lightweight division so kudos to UFC matchmaker Joe Silva for reserving it. For Lauzon, it’s an opportunity to redeem himself after losing to Jim Miller at a war at UFC 155, while Johnson wants to bounce back big time after suffering back-to-back beats to Myles Jury and Reza Madadi. This is an aggressive struggle if it remains standing but if it hits the ground then Lauzon, who’s a BJJ ace, will have a massive edge over Johnson, who has quite a poor ground game. Therefore, I expect Lauzon to open at around -230 or with the launching comeback on Johnson being approximately +170, although things could easily change when the public decides they like Johnson to triumph. Personally, I believe that this is a really great matchup for Lauzon so I would predict him to triumph and I definitely will be targeting him for a bet this summer, in addition to targeting the Lauzon via submission prop.
