UFC 126 picks tonight from Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas will include an outstanding light heavyweight bout between two of the biggest names in the circuit as Forrest Griffin will tangle with Rich Franklin. Online sportsbooks have listed Franklin as a -155 betting favorite in UFC odds with Griffin as a +125 underdog. UFC 126 will feature 4 other bouts on the main card headlined by the middleweight championship bout between Anderson Silva vs Vitor Belfort.

Also on the main card in UFC 126 picks is Jake Ellenberger vs Carlos Eduardo Rocha, Jon Jones vs Ryan Bader and Miguel Torres vs Antonio Banuelos. Spike TV will telecast two bouts as well with Chad Mendes vs. Michihiro Omigawa and Donald Cerrone vs. Paul Kelly. Franklin has a record of 28-5 but is 2-2 in UFC odds for his last 4 bouts. He is coming off a knockout win over Chuck Liddell in the first round at UFC 115 on June 12th, 2010. Franklin was the UFC middleweight champion in 2005-2006 before moving up to light heavyweight where he is the number one contender. Known as “Ace”, Franklin is an excellent striker and well-rounded with fine condition.

Heading into UFC 126 picks as the underdog, Griffin has a record of 17-6 and is coming off a win over Tito Ortiz by split decision at UFC 106 on November 21st, 2009. Griffin needed the victory from the close win as he snapped a 2 bout losing streak. Griffin was the light heavyweight champion in 2008 but he lost the title belt in his very next fight against Rashad Evans after winning it against Quinton Jackson. Just like in the Silva vs Belfort match, the underdog Griffin has the ability to pull off the upset in UFC 126 odds since he has proven to be a well-rounded fighter with excellent grappling skills that is known for his ferocious heart and refusal to quit or give in.
