Chael Sonnen finally made up his mind earlier this week and will be moving up into the light heavyweight division. He announced on UFC Tonight that his first opponent will be former UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin, and according to the oddsmakers, he'll be the favorite going into that bout with the much larger man. Here's how BestFightOdds has it right now:
I know Forrest has looked less than stellar lately but is tdd is pretty good and his size and strength should work well for him stopping Sonnen's td's. And Sonnen isn't known for his "devasting" striking. Then again if the Forrest we've been seeing lately could flake out mid fight and run out of the octogon for no reason. Anyone know what the odds are for that?
