How to bet UFC Fight Night: Pettis vs. Thompson

The welterweight division got shuffled in London last weekend, and there will be more potential updates to the rankings coming this weekend as the UFC heads to Nashville, Tennessee.

Former lightweight champion Anthony "Showtime" Pettis moves up to welterweight for the first time to take on No. 3-ranked former title contender Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson.

It's a harsh matchup for Pettis in his first move to a larger division, but perhaps the headliner is an intentional pairing of two of the flashier strikers the UFC has to offer. In what could be a fan-friendly back-and-forth fight, we are bound to see some high-level kicking.

The odds are steep, owing to Pettis' untested move up in weight. Based on current prices, where does the betting value lie?
