How to bet UFC 212

It's not a high profile UFC pay-per-view card, but this weekend in Rio de Janeiro, UFC 212 will offer a good MMA menu. There's one highly competitive title unification bout, a battle between top-two-ranked contenders and even a Legends matchup that provides so much volatility that betting markets should be torn. It may lack star power or depth for global fans, but Brazilians will get to see several of their best fighters on display, on a card stacked with local up-and-comers as well.

So let's take a closer look at the top three matchups and see where the betting value might be hiding.

Middleweight: No. 11 Vitor Belfort (-160) vs. Nate Marquardt (+140)
