I know Russow should be the underdog against Werdum, but those odds are crazy. Probably because nobody's willing to bet on Mike Russow.
I think a lot of people are looking at Werdum as one of the best HW's in the world, and Russow is a huge step back in competition. Werdum beat Nelson worse then anyone has, including JDS, had a very close fight with Overeem, he definitely has what it takes to be a champ in the near future, where as Russow is just a tough grinder.
I think Russow might be a good bet since Werdum has a history of taking guys lightly, and Russow's wrestling and power can win him any fight if his opponent isn't properly prepared.
