MMA ODDS AND ENDS FOR MONDAY: MACDONALD INJURED, HENDRICKS VS. CONDIT NOW ON TAP FOR UFC 158

The injury bug bit the UFC in the butt today as Rory MacDonald is because of a neck injury. In the place steps of MacDonald Johny Hendricks, and he will fight with Condit in the brand new three-round co-main occasion of this evening. The news was initially reported by MMAjunkie.com’s John Morgan. With the switcheroo — that is very disappointing to all seeing as though Condit vs. MacDonald was an early favorite to win”Battle of the Night” — Jake Ellenberger, who was set to combat Hendricks, is left without an opponent, though it’s rumored Tyron Woodley may take the fight on short notice. Expect the MMA odds for Hendricks vs. Condit to be very competitive, although Hendricks will probably be a tiny favorite due to his wrestling edge. Jansen vs. Held Postponed Again An injury to Marcin Held has again forced the postponement of his Bellator Season 7 Lightweight Tournament Final from Dave Jansen for the next time, according to a report by MMAjunkie.com. The lightweights were set to meet at Bellator 84 but the Indian Athletic Commission wouldn’t allow to enter the match and the fight was embarrassingly scratched in the last moment. The rain date, that was set to take place in the Bellator 92 occasion, has been rearranged as well, and both will now meet at Bellator 93. More UFC 157 Props Released A couple more props were released for UFC 157 on 5Dimes Sportsbook today, including a few interesting ones that I wish to point out for you guys (lines as of present time): Ronda Rousey at Round 1 (-300; Ronda Rousey via Submission (-530), Dan Henderson via T/KO (+400); Robbie Lawler through T/KO (+485); and Josh Koscheck by 3-Round Decision (-107).
