According to a July 4 UFC.com report, there are five good reasons why MMA fans should watch tonight’s UFC 175 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nev.
The official breakdown for tonight’s fight card is split into three different sections (All Eastern Times): UFC 175 Fight Pass (live stream) prelims (7 p.m.), UFC 175 TV prelims on FOX Sports 1 (8 p.m.) and the UFC 175 main card on pay-per-view (10 p.m.).

In the main event of the evening, the UFC middleweight title will be on the line when (11-0-0) Chris “All American” Weidman defends his strap for the third time against former UFC light heavyweight champion, (21-4-0) Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida. According to UFC oddsmakers, the champ is listed as a -180 favorite against a challenger with +155 odds of pulling off the upset.

It should come as no surprise that the three-time defending UFC women’s bantamweight champion is a huge -900 favorite to continue her reign over an underdog valued at +600.
The third PPV fight on the UFC 175 docket has “Performance of the Night (Knockout)” written all over it, as former NFL player, (7-3-0) Matt “Meathead” Mitrione faces 12th-ranked heavyweight (29-6-0) Stefan “Skyscraper” Struve. UFC 175 oddsmakers list the Dutchman as a -155 favorite to defeat the former Boilermaker and his +135 odds of stunning the MMA world.
The penultimate fight on the UFC 175 main card features the owner of the most spectacular knockout in TUF history, as (9-4-0) Uriah “Show Time” Hall goes up against dangerous Brazilian, (9-2-0) Thiago “Marreta” Santos. Surprisingly, MMA oddsmakers list the TUF 17 alumnus as a pretty hefty -375 favorite against the +310 dog from Rio de Janeiro.
Finally, rounding out the UFC 175 main fight card is a battle of explosive 135-pounders as (6-2-0) Marcus “The Bama Beast” Brimage faces (13-3-0) Russell Doane to open up the PPV festivities. UFC 175 oddsmakers have Brimage listed as a -125 favorite over Doane’s +105 odds of an upset this evening.
