This is a worthy co-main event for UFC on Fox 31 and looking at the Edson Barboza Vs Dan Hooker betting odds the oddsmakers are finding it hard to split these two evenly matched opponents on the UFC betting lines.

Bet365* bookmakers online have the pair both priced up at -111, so this really is a 50/50 matchup and nobody really knows how this one will play out. Dan Hooker has two recent losses on his record to Yair Rodriguez and Jason Knight, but he has been devastating in his last four fights, securing two wins by KO with a knee, one with a punch and also a submission win over British up and comer Marc Diakiese.

Showing world class potential in all areas of MMA, Dan Hooker is a very dangerous fighter in the 155lb division and he seems to be improving at just the right time. After his last fight against Gilbert Burns, Hooker said in his post fight interview: “Give me someone on my level” and the UFC matchmakers didn’t disappoint, because Edson Barboza is certainly that.

Barboza has lost his last two fights, but they were against the Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Kevin Lee, so there is no shame in either of those losses. This is his opportunity to get back on the wagon and prove himself to be a top 5 class of fighter. Barboza also has the most dangerous kicks in the division, his timing and delivery of head kicks has seen some of his KO wins on the all-time UFC highlight reels and if he can find his best form, he is our betting pick for this fight…just.
