The odds are set for Saturday's UFC 203 as the UFC heavyweight title is up for grabs in Cleveland, Ohio. The main card lineup is comprised of two heavyweight bouts, a pro debut, plus a bantamweight bout that has flip-flopped from its opening odds. With this particular lineup, there does not seem to be much action in terms of betting value.
UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic (-145) has home field advantage as he faces a dangerous veteran in Alistair Overeem (+115). The fattest favorite for the night will be UFC lightweight Nik Lentz (-450) taking on Michael McBride (+325) in a short notice match. The big dog on the block will be former WWE superstar CM Punk coming in with a moneyline of +375 as he is set to square off against a sizable favorite in Mickey Gall.
The number two ranked UFC bantamweight Urijah Faber (-222 opening) opened up as a descent favorite over the number 13 ranked Jimmie Rivera (+175 opening); however, a solid chunk of change was dropped on Rivera (-130) sending Faber (+115) to the underdog world.
