01:36 PM ET 07.17 | UFC lightweight contender Anthony Pettis has a win over current champion Benson Henderson in their epic fight that was the last in WEC history before the promotion folded in to the UFC and it looks like oddsmakers are keeping that in mind with the early betting lines for their upcoming rematch at UFC 164. Pettis stepped in as a late replacement for injured T.J. Grant, but the shortened camp will not be enough to give Henderson the edge in the eyes of Vegas. According to BestFightOdds, Pettis opens as a -119 favorite, while Henderson comes in at -105. The first match up between the two fighters was evenly matched and it was a late rally from Pettis that included the "Showtime Kick" off of the cage that gave Pettis the edge in the decision and led to him being crowned the final lightweight champion in WEC history.
