For the most part expect the favorites to win their fights - with two exceptions - Andrei Arlovski is facing a fellow Russian Sergei Karitonov. Sergei has been quite inactive in the last three years Although he has some big wins he has some glaring losses, I think Arlovski is a decent value as a dog. Second is Ray Sefo against Valentijn Overeem (Alistair's brother) who has a record of 28-25...that says a lot. Ray is inexperienced in MMA but has tons of experience in kickboxing (56-21) and boxing (5-1). Sefo's size and striking should make the difference.
