Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor is the UFC betting favorite to defeat Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 on Saturday, 12th November at Madison Square Garden in New York City. And since Alvarez’s title is the one that it’s at stake, chances are McGregor will leave the event with two championships he can not defend, instead of just one. Sure, Irish people tend to be paper-white – ironically, even the Black Irish – but that doesn’t mean they have to be paper champions as well, does it? Anyway, here are the odds for people who bet on UFC:
Josh Barnett is the UFC gambling favorite to beat Andrei Arlovski when Fight Night 93 rolls around on Saturday, September 3rd at Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany. The UFC betting odds for that heavyweight bout are the following:
Andrei Arlovski 1½ (-145) +120
Josh Barnett 1½ (+125) -140
UFC 202 has come and past and with it came possibly one of the largest events that online wagering has been a part of since Muhammad Ali was still stepping inside the ring. There’s no question the rematch between McGregor and Diaz will be remembered throughout sporting communities for ages to come. But in the magnitude of such a colossal event certain fights, that were spectacular in their own right, got lost. This includes Mike Perry continually dropping his South Korean opponent, Donald Cerrone’s Mortal Kombat-like combo to finish off Story, and Anthony Johnson’s impressive display of power. Out of all these Johnson’s knockout shines brightly as the most impressive.
Online betting fans looking for an intense match to wager on already know that UFC 202 will provide just that. Sure, every sports fan in the world will be tuning in to watch McGregor attempt to get his revenge but a quick look at the official fight card will reveal there is another much lucrative bout. With all the hype surrounding this highly anticipated rematch many UFC fans haven’t been exposed to the rest of the scheduled bouts. Part of this is because of how big of icons Diaz and McGregor are, and the other part can be attributed to lack of publicity the other fighters get. There’s no denying that the fight between Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor will be electrifying but the betting odds reveals there is a better way to make a quick buck with your bet on UFC.
UFC betting fans that had a premonition regarding Woodley’s upset are feeling pretty good right about now. In a stunning flash the contender was able to land a vicious right hook that send the former champion to the ground. While some sportsbook users may have seen it coming, to say that the world of UFC betting was shocked would be an understatement. The ‘Chosen One’ upsetting Lawler is impressive enough, but to do it in the fashion that he did was unimaginable. Woodley stayed true to his nature, start out fast and try to land that skull-crushing right hand. Many expected Lawler to be more reserved, which is his usual tactic, but what was unexpected was how quickly Woodley knocked Lawler down. Up until this point Lawler’s title defends were riddled with heavy hits, proving time and time again his inhuman resilience. Apparently those fights had taken a toll on the former champ and Woodley was able to capitalize on a weary Lawler. His first hook sent him to the ground, and his second ensured Lawler wouldn’t get up. As UFC betting fans prepare for UFC 202 one thing is undisputable, Tyron Woodley is the new welterweight champion.
