The final betting odds are in for tonight’s UFC 215, and now that Demetrious Johnson vs. Ray Borg has been cancelled, the new main event will witness the women’s bantamweight title fight between the champ Amanda Nunes (-110/+115) and the challenger Valentina Shevchenko (-125). The new co-main will see the UFC’s former lightweight king Rafael dos Anjos (-190) square off with the UFC’s #6 welterweight, Neil Magny (+175).
With Mighty Mouse out of the way, Adriano Martins will now hold the title of UFC 215’s heaviest betting favorite, as he sports a -525 tag against the card’s largest underdog, Kajan Johnson (+450). UFC 215 has seen one set of odds reverse, as Tyson Pedro went from being a slight underdog at +100, to being a sturdy favorite at around -135. His opponent, Ilir Latifi, saw the opposite transition, as he went from an initial line of -140 to a solid dog tag of +125. Amanda Nunes (-110/+115) can still be found at both plus and minus odds, as she looks to defend her crown against the betting favorite in Shevchenko (-125). Jeremy Stephens (-120/+105) can now be found at both favorite and underdog lines, as he is set to tangle with Gilbert Melendez (-115), who can only be found as a favorite.
Tonight’s UFC 215 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 7:00 P.M. ET.

Tyson Pedro vs. Ilir latifi: Light Heavyweight
Tyson Pedro opened up as a slim underdog at +100 to Ilir Latifi’s -140, until the betting public liked what they saw, threw down on Pedro, and reversed the odds from where they opened. Pedro is now the solid favorite at -135 with Latifi now playing the role of underdog at +125.
Adriano Martins vs. Kajan Johnson: Lightweight
Since the UFC 215 midweek betting odds dropped, Martins has only pulled away further as the gambling favorite, starting at -260, and then to -460, and now at -525. Johnson on the other hand, has seen little to no love in terms of wagers, and has skyrocketed from his opening line of +180, to a hefty tag of +450.
Mitch Clarke vs. Alex White: Lightweight
Clarke is a sizable lightweight, and Tony Martin may have exposed some of the holes in White’s grappling game. Taking a flyer on Clarke wins by submission @ +421 is lit.
