UFC 130 is being hosted at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and the main card will be available live on pay-per-view starting at 9PM ET. The main event at UFC 130 was supposed to be between Gray Maynard & Frankie Edgar, but the two of them ended up getting injured recently and both fighters had to back out of the fight. The new main event is now Matt Hamill & Quinton Jackson, which is one of the easier fights to bet on this weekend. Full UFC 130 betting odds are listed below, along with a small guide helping you learn how to bet on UFC if you haven’t done so before, enjoy.

UFC 130 Main Event Odds & Predictions:
• Matt Hamill +220
• Quinton Jackson -280
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (31-8) will be taking on Matt Hamill (10-2) in the main event. This light heavyweight bout should be fairly lop-sided if Rampage comes out firing. Hamill’s biggest weapon is his wrestling skills, but he has been improving in the striking game. However, I still don’t think it’ll prove to be enough against Jackson. Rampage has competed with the best MMA fighters in the world in various MMA fighting promotions and since joining the UFC he’s only lost two fights. Hamill has only been knocked out once by Rich Franklin, but I think there is a chance he gets knocked out on Saturday night. Take Jackson laying the -280 betting odds.
UFC 130 Main Card Odds & Predictions:
• Roy Nelson +110
• Frank Mir -130
Roy Nelson will meet Frank Mir in the co-main event at UFC 130 and it should be an interesting fight to say the least. Nelson has grown into one of the most well liked UFC fighters and he’s also shown up when it’s his time to get in the cage. Nelson just lost to Junior Dos Santos in his last fight, but the Brazilian wasn’t able to TKO or submit Nelson. Mir most likely won’t TKO Nelson either this weekend, but I like him as the small favourite. Mir is way more technical in the cage and he should be able to control the pace of the fight and win by decision after 3 rounds. I’m on Mir at -130 odds.
• Brian Stann -145
• Jorge Santiago +125
Jorge Santiago hasn’t fought in the UFC since 2006 when he suffered 2 straight TKO losses, but he’s now back after dominating the Sengoku promotion the past few years. Brian Stann is coming into this fight at UFC 130 with a 4-2 UFC record including two straight victories over Mike Massenzio and Chris Leben. This isn’t a headline fight, but if Stann can keep his winning streak going this weekend he should get some better fights in the near future. I like Stann to win by TKO in the 3rd round against Santiago, as he’s looked sharp in his last two UFC fights. Bet on Stann here.
• Stefan Struve +130
• Travis Browne -150
If you bet on knockout of the night then this is the fight that you want to bet on this weekend. There is little doubt in my mind that this fight will end with a vicious knockout, the question is who will end up knocking out who. I like Browne in this fight, as he still hasn’t lost since starting his professional MMA career. Struve is more experienced and a great heavyweight fighter, but he often doesn’t take advantage of his opponent’s weaknesses. Browne has knocked out 8 opponents in 11 MMA fights and he should add another TKO to his record this Saturday if he can stay on his fight and not on his back. Bet Browne at -150 odds or better.
• Rick Story +175
• Thiago Alves -210
Thiago Alves is looking to make his way back into the #1 contenders spot in the welterweight division and a win over Rick Story would help out a lot. Story is coming into this fight with a 5-fight winning streak, but he hasn’t faced anyone as good as Alves and this is going to be a real tough test. Alves has fought the best in the UFC welterweight division and there is no way I can see him losing against Rick at UFC 130 unless something out of the ordinary happens. Alves has already beat John Howard since losing to St. Pierre and Fitch, so confidence shouldn’t be a problem. I’ll be laying up to -210 odds betting on Alves tonight.
