UFC betting fans are used to fighters drop outing of a bout for various reasons. While the majority of the time the cancellations are related to injuries sustained while training, other times players have to serve a suspension for banned substances.

After the injury the UFC scrambled to find a fighter to fill his absence, and the only fighter to have the ‘cahones’ to take on Ferguson was Vannata.

Judging by his offspring, I’m going to go ahead and assume that Mr. Holm is the kind of preacher that Bob Mitchum was in Night of the Hunter. Be that as it may, these are the UFC betting odds for the fight:
Fans who are going to bet on UFC 200 on Saturday, July 9th will bear witness to something of an oddity – other than Brock Lesnar making his grand return, that is. Even though the current UFC Featherweight Champion is Conor McGregor, the landmark event will feature a Featherweight Championship bout involving Jose Aldo versus Frankie Edgar – and unfortunately it will not be a Triple Threat match including the incumbent champ.
