The event is scheduled to take place June 13<sup>th</sup> at Arena Cuidad de Mexico in Mexico City, and the local crowd will undoubtedly be backing the current champion.</p> <p>This is a fight that was originally scheduled to take place at UFC 180, but a reoccurring knee injury forced Velasquez to pull out of the event, only to be replaced by Mark Hunt.</p> <p>Werdum made easy work of Hunt, ending him with a TKO in the 2<sup>nd</sup> round, a result that ultimately secured his place as the interim champ and gave him first shot at a healthy Velasquez.</p> <p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":1292504, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,999996,43,19], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p> <p><strong>UFC Betting Odds</strong><br /> <span style="text-align:center">There is no doubt that </span><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/more-sports/ufc-188-picks-velasquez-expected-dominate-werdum/57399/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Velasquez to dominate Werdum?">Cain Velasquez is the best heavyweight fighter in the world</a><span style="text-align:center"> when he is healthy, but these very same health concerns could be causing the betting odds to come in a bit softer than they should. For a man of his size, his cardio is unrivaled, and his wrestling skills make him nearly impossible to control. He can ceat you on your feel and you do not want to meet him on the ground.</span></p> <p><a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/" target="_blank" title="Who can you trust with your money?">Online Sportsbooks</a> are offering Cain as a -450 favorite over Werdum, and while it is not uncommon to see such steep odds on offer in mixed martial arts, one should be a bit skeptical as to why the lines are listed the way they currently are.</p> <p>When the <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/ufc/" target="_blank" title="Track &amp; Compare Live UFC Odds">UFC odds markets</a> first opened, Cain could be found at prices anywhere between -550 and -500. With UFC 187 in the rearview, this event now takes center stage, and the early betting flows show small support for the challenger. This can most likely be attributed to the enticing price tag, as a bet on a Velasquez victory offers little payout.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Method of Victory Odds &amp; Other Prop Betting Options</strong><br /> We are talking heavyweights here, and these men are known for their ability to end a fight quickly and swiftly. Every punch thrown has knockout potential, and it is no surprise to see that sportsbooks are offering the KO as the most likely result.</p> <p>The following is a list of <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/ufc-betting-directory/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="UFC Betting Directory">all UFC 188 Prop Betting Odds on offer</a>.
