UFC 97 odds - Quarry, McDonald go to war

As much as the Silva vs Leites odds will get all the glory in UFC 97 betting, the Quarry vs McDonald odds, considered by some to be the No. 3 event on the card, could easily produce the most tightly contested match of the night.

Nate "Rock" Quarry (16-3) goes head-to-head with Jason "The Athlete" McDonald (22-11) in a battle between two athletic fighters who even have similar recent track records at the sportsbook, as both were choked out by fast-rising Demian Maia.

Quarry is a wrestler by trade but has enjoyed most of his UFC betting success by pounding opponents. Of his five UFC odds victories, only one has come via decision, with the other four coming via impressive knockouts. MMA betting fans would thus be wrong to label him a one-dimensional fighter. His most recent fight was a loss to Maia in which he seemed overmatched on the ground, so he may be better off standing against McDonald.

McDonald is another middleweight with a superb ability to finish fights -- all but one of his 22 career victories was a decision. He's an extreme submission specialist who wins most of his fights by choking out his opponents, so online betting fans can expect him to try and do the same against Quarry. He may be less versatile than Quarry, though, and will almost have to take him to the ground to win.

I like Quarry to prevail in the Quarry vs McDonald odds . It's not that McDonald hasn't fought anyone -- it's that he hasn't beaten anyone. He consistently crumbles against top competition, having lost to Wilson Gouveia, Rich Franklin and Maia. Quarry is probably less experienced than McDonald, but he's been more dominant in his career so far. Bet on Quarry, but don't forget that Canadian McDonald is fighting in his home country.
