Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen at UFC 148Anderson Silva is stepping in on short notice to face Stephan Bonnar at UFC 153, but that doesn’t mean the champion is coming in as any less of a favorite.

According to oddsmaker Nick Kalikas from BetOnFighting.com, Anderson Silva will open as one of the biggest favorites in UFC history when he faces Bonnar on Oct 13 in his native Brazil.

Silva comes in as a whopping -1350 favorite over Stephan Bonnar, who comes back as a +850 underdog.

With Silva coming in as a -1350 favorite in this fight, it makes him approximately a 93-percent favorite in this upcoming UFC main event.

Over the years there have been some astronomically huge odds in terms of favorites and underdogs, such as when Fedor Emelianenko faced Mark Coleman in Pride in October 2006 or when Antonio Rogerio Nogueira faced Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou in Pride (which Sokoudjou actually ended up winning).

Kalikas also tells MMAWeekly.com that these are the largest odds in favor of Anderson Silva ever.

“Essentially, nobody is giving Stephan Bonnar a shot in this fight, and the odds reflect that,” said Kalikas. “If the public starts coming in on Anderson Silva, the odds may end up even higher.”

Anderson Silva faces Bonnar in the new main event at UFC 153 in Brazil on Oct 13.
