The final betting odds are in for UFC 213, and Amanda Nunes (-110) and Valentina Shevchenko (-110) remain even as they head into Saturday’s main event bantamweight title fight. Since Robert Whittaker (-115) claimed the role of favorite in the co-main 185 interim title bout, Yoel Romero (-105/+115) has tiptoed along the plus and minus line for some time, but has finally moved back to a favorite tag on most betting sites. Curtis Blaydes remains the heaviest favorite on the UFC 213 card at around -740, as he takes on the evening’s largest underdog, Daniel Omielanczuk, who clocks in around a whopping +520.
We have 5 UFC 213 bouts in which the favorite can be found at -145 or less, which could mean some tightly contested tilts, but also means there are a bunch of affordable favorites if you happen to fancy any of them. Fabricio Werdum (+100) is coming awfully close on various sites, as he takes on Alistair Overeem (-125), but Yoel Romero is the only UFC 213 competitor that can be had at both plus and minus odds.
Saturday’s UFC 213 main card will air live on Pay-Per-View at 10:00 P.M. ET with the prelims starting at 8:00 P.M. ET on FS1. The Exclusive Fight Pass prelims will begin at 6:30 P.M. ET.

Not much of any odds shifting has occurred since the UFC 213 midweek betting odds dropped earlier, but there are 2 moneylines that do show some variance. Yoel Romero (-105) has made his way back to the favorite side of the fence, and some heavyweight flyers are at play as some money has been put down on underdog Daniel Omielanczuk (+520).
Yoel Romero vs. Robert Whittaker: Middleweight Interim Title
Yoel Romero (-105) began his UFC 213 betting life with a moneyline of around -130, until a few waves of wagers on Robert Whittaker (-115) sent Romero for a brief stroll down underdog lane. After an superhuman display of athleticism at the UFC 213 open workouts, the betting public shifted gears and started dropping some doe on Romero, bouncing him back to a favorite line of about -105, but can still be found at dog odds on a few betting sites. Whittaker reached as high as -140 at one point, but has since simmered down to around -115.
Curtis Blaydes (-740) opened up with a sizable favorite line of -405, before ballooning up to a staggering -900, to Daniel Omielanczuk (+520), who opened up at +285 before skyrocketing to a big dog tag of +600. The combat sports betters out there seemed to believe that +600 odds in the heavy handed heavyweight division is worth a look, so a bit of coin has come in for Omielanczuk, sending the underdog down to about +520, with Blaydes dropping down to around -740.
Yoel Romero vs. Robert Whittaker: Middleweight
Robert Whittaker (-130) is a deadly striker with superb takedown defense, however, Yoel Romero (-105/+110) has time and time again found a way to get the job done, plus he’s a freak of nature. Yoel Romero @ underdog odds look sexy!
Gerald Meerschaert by Submission @ +220
Yoel Romero inside the distance @ +178
