Ultimate Fighting Championship has declared six enormous bouts with this summer with a multitude of champions and top title contenders in five different weight classes. MMA oddsmaker Nick Kalikas has started betting odds for the six contests.
The first bout, a lightweight contest between Donald Cerrone and Tony Ferguson, will happen at UFC 238 on June 8 in Chicago. Here's Nick's rationale supporting his chances:
"Donald Cerrone vs Tony Ferguson is among the most fan friendly struggles created in years. Cerrone has appeared like a new man in his return to lightweight. He's gained confidence and seems motivated and hungry to get a push in the belt. Ferguson is a really well-rounded fighter and is fighting a chip on his shoulder after fighting private issues and becoming stripped of his interim title. Stylistically, both fighters are exceptionally capable finishers both standing and on the ground. Both men possess serious knockout power and have the capability to get knocked out. Ferguson's speed and unpredictability provide him the edge here."
Max Holloway vs Frankie Edgar was initially announced for UFC 222 early this past year and Nick gave his ideas about the bout then, but a whole lot has changed in the last 18 months. The bout will now take place as the headliner of UFC 240. Listed below are the thoughts on it of Nick:
"Frankie Edgar is the ultimate underdog, and at 37 years old, hard for Max Holloway's belt may be his main hurdle to overcome yet in his profession. Edgar has strong wrestling and gets got the conditioning to really go the distance with Holloway, but in the past year, he was knocked out for the first time by Brian Ortega and has only beaten Cub Swanson since. Holloway ruined Ortega, but eventually looked human if he unsuccessfully moved up to lightweight to battle Dustin Poirier. Holloway's striking is now elite, having easily completed stand-up specialists Jose Aldo (2x) and Anthony Pettis. Edgar's wrestling could be an X-factor if he can take Holloway down and keep him down, but it is unlikely he can stand and trade with Holloway, a fighter who's prepared to take a chance to dish out five . Holloway was a -215 last time, but now he'll be a -300 favorite."
UFC 241 in August will feature a heavyweight title rematch, with the functions of Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier reversed this time.
