    UFC 125 can be seen on pay per view live from Las Vegas, NV. It should be a nice card, but it doesn't really have a main event.

While Edgar and Maynard has the makings of a terribly boring fight, Stann and Leben should put on a show. The card is handicapped below. PRELIMINARIES: Greg Soto (-125) vs. Daniel Roberts (-105) Soto has been impressive thus far in his MMA career, surpri...
