One of the biggest MMA events of the year is upon us. UFC 172 will take place on Saturday night from Baltimore, MD, with five fights scheduled for the main card.

Let's take a look at the odds in each fight:

1. Max Holloway vs. Andre Fili

A couple of young guns will go at it in this fight, with Holloway (+135) being just 22 and Fili being just 23-years of age. Fili is favored to take care of business (-155) and run his record to 14-1.

2. Jim Miller (9) vs. Yancy Medeiros

Rockhold is a big time favorite (-800) in his bout against Boetsch (+600). A win for the 29-year old will certainly help him continue his way up the middleweight ranks.

4. Phil Davis (4) vs. Anthony Johnson (14)

In the co-main event of the evening Davis comes in at (-240) and Johnson comes in at (+180). Davis will be looking to run his pro record to 13-1.

5. Jon Jones (C) vs. Glover Teixeira (2)

This main event should be a good one. Many think there's a real chance that Jones goes down. The oddsmakers don't see it that way, as Bones (-500) is favored over Teixeira (+400). But hey, we all saw what happened in the UFC on FOX 11 main event.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.

Ronda Rousey’s Mom Predicted Holly Holm Would Knock Her Out

Dr. AnnMaria De Mars is the first woman ever to win a gold medal at the World Judo Championship doing so in 1984. She is also the mother of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Further she may be the most vocal critic of Rousey’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan. Appearing on Submission Radio De Mars once again spoke out on Tarverdyan commenting on Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. “I predicted it in advance Ronda trained with an idiot and a fraud” said De Mars.

Ronda Rousey’s Coach Breaks Silence on KO Loss to Holly Holm

We haven’t heard much from Ronda Rousey or her camp about the loss Rousey suffered to Holly Holm in November. Sure Rousey recently hosted Saturday Night Live and briefly addressed her UFC 193 knockout loss in her monologue but as far as detailed comments on the fight there has been mostly silence. That changed earlier this week when Rousey’s trainer Edmond Tarverdyan spoke to ESPN. Tarverdyan took a lot of heat in the days following the fight. Most of that heat was generated when his fighter bloodied and breathing from her mouth sat down on her stool at the end of Round 1.

Dana White Responds to Jose Aldo’s Demand for Conor McGregor Rematch

On Thursday UFC president Dana White appearing on the “Opie and Jim Norton” radio show said “It’s one of those things; we made the fight the first time and he got hurt and had to pull out. Then we made it again and it ended in 13 seconds. It’s tough to make that fight again right away. Plus Conor wants to be a two-belt champion so he wants to fight dos Anjos.” While White didn’t totally rule out an Aldo versus McGregor rematch his comments make the fight seem unlikely. McGregor’s next fight will take place on March 5 when he moves up to lightweight to try and capture Rafael dos Anjos’ title.
