Barnett vs Villante Betting Picks

This is going to be a hard-hitting bout but with more UFC fights under his name, Gian Villante has the edge in this match. There is not much difference between him and Chris Barnatt in the online betting spreads which makes the Florida-based fighter a good risk to take.
