YAS ISLAND, Abu Dhabi – In the third and final UFC Fight Night taking place at Yas Island, UFC bettors are given plenty of action heading into Saturday’s event.
With a packed main card, bettors have six fights to bet on, while the undercard also gives those fanatics even more UFC betting action.
The main event is between Robert Whittaker and Darren Till, while the co-main event features a longtime rivalry in Mauricio Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
UFC Fight Night 174 Main Card Odds
- Robert Whittaker (-135) vs. Darren Till (+115)
- Mauricio Rua (-195) vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (+170)
- Alexander Gustafsson (-300) vs. Fabricio Werdum (+250)
- Marina Rodriguez (-188) vs. Carla Esparza (+163)
- Paul Craig (-132) vs. Gadzhimurad Antigulov (+112)
- Alex Oliveira (-145) vs. Peter Sobotta (+125)
While most of the odds have stayed relatively in place, some of the largest movements surround the main event and early matches.
Sitting at -116 odds immediately after UFC Fight Night: Figueiredo vs. Benavidez 2 ended, Whittaker has become a much stronger favorite, sporting -135 odds.
On last week’s oddsboard, Sobotta was a much larger underdog (+145), but now gives those who are supporting Oliveira a cheaper opportunity to win. Likewise, the former standard odds battle between Craig and Antigulov watched nearly all of the money float into Craig’s corner after the intense weight in, giving Antigulov a true underdog status.
