Two fan-friendly middleweight strikers face off on Saturday night in an attempt to climb towards a shot at the title. Here is a breakdown of the Mousasi vs. Hall betting odds.
The first time Gegard Mousasi and Uriah Hall faced off, the middleweight division was in a much different place. At that time, Chris Weidman was still an undefeated champion, and current champ Michael Bisping had just narrowly won a split decision over tough veteran fighter Thales Leites.
Almost all online sportsbooks in the UK had Mousasi as the betting favorite heading into the fight against Hall. For the first round, they seemed to have chosen correct, as Mousasi used his strong ground game to smother and land strikes on Hall. At the beginning of the second, however, Uriah Hall landed an incredible spinning back kick to Mousasi’s face, and quickly landed a series of strikes that looked like something out of a movie to get the TKO stoppage.
Since that time, the two fighters have gone in opposite trajectories. Gegard Mousasi has now won three straight fights including a TKO over Vitor Belfort. Hall, on the other hand, has lost two straight fights, most recently a TKO loss to Derek Brunson. This Saturday the two will settle the score in Belfast, Ireland. Let’s take a look at the Mousasi vs. Hall 2 betting odds set by NetBet Sportsbook.
Underdog and Favorite
Despite Uriah Hall winning their first fight in emphatic fashion, he is coming into this fight on Saturday night as a considerable betting underdog. This is likely due to his recent string of losses, and the fact that he was losing their first fight before landing the spinning kick. Hall’s odds to win are currently set at 5.05.
Mousasi has been on an absolute tear since losing the fight with Hall in September of 2015. He once again made UK gambling news by dominating Vitor Belfort in October, and is now a serious favorite to win this rematch. NetBet Sportsbook lists his odds to win at 1.12.
