While a concrete date and event have not yet been set for Brock Lesnar's next UFC heavyweight title defense against his next challenger Cain Velasquez, early betting lines for the fight have already surfaced on some MMA gambling-related websites.

Bodog.com have released their early lines for the Lesnar-Velasquez showdown, with Lesnar opening as a slight favorite over the undefeated challenger.

Lesnar is listed by Bodog as -150, with Velasquez at +120. In basic terms, this means a $150 wager on Lesnar would pocket you $100 profit if he were to come out on top the night of the fight. On the flip side of the coin, a $100 bet on Velasquez would earn you $120 on top of your investment if the AKA standout were to snag the coveted UFC heavyweight championship from Lesnar.

It is still unknown when and where this fight will take place, but as of today you can officially rule out the rumored September 25th date, as it was announced today that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Frank Mir II will headline the UFC 119 card that night from Indianapolis, Indiana, with Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Ryan Bader as the semi-main event.
