UFC 187: Johnson vs. Cormier
Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) is back once more with a big pay-per-view event tonight (Saturday, May 23rd, 2015) in Las Vegas, Nevada, which is headlined by a light heavyweight and middleweight title bout.
Here's the outline for tonight's show:
*Main* 205 lbs: Anthony Johnson (19-4) vs. Daniel Cormier (15-1)
185 lbs: Chris Weidman (12-0) vs. Vitor Belfort (24-10)
155 lbs: Donald Cerrone (27-6) vs. John Makdessi (13-3)
265 lbs: Travis Browne (17-2-1) vs. Andrei Arlovski (23-10)
125 lbs: Joseph Benavidez (21-4) vs. John Moraga (16-3)
*Preliminary Card *125 lbs: John Dodson (16-6) vs. Zack Makovsky (19-5)
170 lbs: Dong Hyun Kim (19-3-1) vs. Josh Burkman(27-11)
185 lbs: Uriah Hall (10-4) vs. Rafael Natal (19-6-1)
115 lbs: Rose Namajunas (2-2) vs. Nina Ansaroff (6-4)
170 lbs: Mike Pyle (26-10-1) vs. Colby Covington (7-0)
155 lbs: Islam Makhachev (11-0) vs. Leo Kuntz (17-1-1)
125 lbs: Josh Sampo (11-4) vs. Justin Scoggins (9-2)
This event is special because of the main and co-main events of the evening, which features two title fights. The main event is a light heavyweight title bout for Jon Jones' vacant light heavyweight title. Both Johnson and Cormier are the two best fighters remaining in the 205 pound division and should put on a very entertaining show that will hinge on who can implement either a wrestling or striking gameplan. The co-main event is a middleweight title fight between champion Chris Weidman and challenger Vitor Belfort. This is a grudge match due to Weidman's hatred of steroids and Belfort's test for elevated testosterone levels last year plus a prior positive steroid test a long time ago. Things got heated at the weigh-ins yesterday and they should be very interesting today as well.
Another fight to keep an eye on is a pair of flyweight bouts featuring two of the top contenders in the division. Both Joseph Benavidez and John Dodson have lost in title bids against champion Demetrious Johnson but they're working for another crack and they'll have to beat respective opponents John Moraga and Zach Makovsky impressively if they want to earn that shot. This could be a very interesting game of one-upsmanship so stay tuned.
Several of the most popular fighters in the promotion will also be on display as Donald Cerrone looks to earn a lightweight title shot as he squares off against talented striker John Makdessi. A heavyweight battle between Travis Browne and Andrei Arlovski also carries significant title implications. There's a lot of things to be excited for tonight, so stay tuned!.
Feel free to check out our bets for the event. Our UFC 187 plays are now available for the show tonight. Good luck!

Belmont Stakes Early Betting Odds
Anytime a three-year-old thoroughbred posts a victory in the first two legs of the Triple Crown horse racing season, the third and final leg, which is the Belmont Stakes, takes on a whole new meaning. This year’s Belmont will be run on Saturday, June 6, at Belmont Park in Elmont New York, and the field of contenders to end American Pharoah’s run towards history is already taking shape.
Trained by Bob Baffert are ridden by Victor Espinoza, American Pharoah followed up his dramatic one-length victory in this year’s Kentucky Derby in a field of 18 three-year olds with a comfortable seven-length victory in this past Saturday’s Preakness Stakes in a much smaller field of eight horses.
With almost three weeks until the running of the Belmont Stakes, the field for the third and toughest test is far from set, but it’s already taking shape. Early betting odds have been released for the horses that are expected to run in this race, with American Pharoah at the top of the list at 4/5.
The last time a horse won all three races that make up the Triple Crown was all the way back in 1978 when Affirmed accomplished one of the rarest feats in sports. Looking back at the long and time-honored history of this racing series, there have only been 11 three-year-old thoroughbreds to lay claim to an elusive Triple Crown title. Going back to the year 2002, there have been seven horses that have won both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes only to fail to bring home the title in the 1 ½-mile Belmont Stakes, which is the longest and most grueling test of the three races. You would have to believe that the odds still remained stacked against American Pharoah to end this drought no matter which horses he will have to face in this race.
There is a pair of three-year-olds on the list with the next best odds to win the Belmont at 6/1, starting with Frosted. Trained by Kiaran McLaughlin and ridden by Joel Rosario, this horse punched his ticket to this year’s Kentucky Derby by winning the Grade 1 Wood Memorial at Aqueduct on April 4. He went off from the 15thpost in the Kentucky Derby at 15/1 odds and almost finished in the money behind American Pharoah, Firing Line and Dortmund. Frosted skipped the Preakness Stakes, so he should be well-rested for the challenge to beat the favorite this time around.
The other horse at 6/1 betting odds is Materiality. This is another contender that should be ready to go for the Belmont after skipping the Preakness. Trained by Todd Pletcher, this colt made his mark in the Kentucky Derby prep race season with a victory in the Grade 1 Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park on March 28. He started from the third post in the Kentucky Derby at 12/1 odds and ended up sixth in the field of 18.
One of Pletcher’s other expected entries in the Belmont Stakes is Carpe Diem at 10/1 betting odds. He was one of the most highly-touted contenders for the Kentucky Derby after American Pharoah and Dortmund as an 8/1 third-favorite at post time, but much of the hype surrounding this horse has died down after finishing well down the list in 10th place in that race. He was also held out of the Preakness to further prepare for a better run in the Belmont.
Moving down the list of possible contenders for the Belmont Stakes is Keen Ice at 12/1 odds. This will be his second Triple Crown race after passing on the Preakness. Trained by Dale Romans and ridden by Kent Desormeaux, this colt first caught bettor’s attention with a third-place finish in the Grade 2 Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds in late February. He finished just out of the money by taking fourth in the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby on March 28 at Fair Grounds and starting from the 14th post in the Kentucky Derby at 50/1 odds, he ended up seventh in that race.
***Covers Experts is your home for betting the Triple Crown. Big Al McMordie nailed American Pharaoh to win both of the first 2 legs and also cashed the exacta in the Preakness. Stay tuned for a full Belmont Stakes card***

1* Free Play Ducks.
I had a big play on the Blackhawks in Game 4 and obviously feel pretty good about the win after Chicago fell apart late to let the Ducks back into it. Anaheim would take a 4-3 lead late in the third period with the second-fastest three goals in Stanley Cup Playoff history: "If you look at all four games [in this series] they've been all tremendous hockey games," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said afterwards. "One has to lose, one has to win. Usually when one of the teams makes a mistake, a good team capitalizes on it. That's what happened. We had our chances again to win it, but it didn't happen. So we'll just regroup. Now it's a 2-out-of-3. Let's go after it." As Boudreau said, this has turned into a three-game series and remember, after the Blackhawks won 3-2 in Game 2 at the Honda Center, Anaheim would respond with a 2-1 win in Game 3: "I think we're right there," Cogliano said. "I don't think they overwhelmed us with too much. I thought we had our looks. They had the more power plays and they converted at the end of the game to tie it up. To score three goals when you're down 3-1 speaks to the team, and there is no hanging our heads. Obviously it is a bad feeling, but we've got to battle back." Note that Anaheim has been money in the bank in this spot all year as well, 25-9 (+13.2 units) after scoring four goals or more in its previous game, 19-9 (+9.3 units) after allowing four goals or more and 5-2 (+2.7 units) in its last seven when tied in a playoff series. The price is right, consider a second look at the DUCKS in Game 5.
