UFC Fortaleza kicks off tonight, February 2, as the promotion makes its second appearance on ESPN+. Bloody Elbow has the betting odds.
The main event has the UFC’s #4 ranked bantamweight Marlon Moraes favored over the #3 ranked Raphael Assuncao in their rematch. Moraes can be found with a solid moneyline of -160, with Assuncao sporting an underdog tag of +140.
The first time these bantamweights went at it was at UFC 212 back in 2017. Moraes opened up as a -210 betting favorite with a +160 comeback on Assuncao. The bout went the full fifteen minutes, with Assuncao walking away with the split decision.
Just like their initial matchup, the oddsmakers also have this one going the distance. ‘Fight goes to decision’ is packing the favored line here at -180, with ‘fight doesn’t go to decision’ playing the underdog role at +150.
The over/under for the UFC on ESPN+ 2 main event has been set at 4.5 rounds. As expected, the ‘over’ owns the favored line at -175, and the ‘under’ can be snagged up at dog odds for about +155.
In the co-main event, featherweight great Jose Aldo makes his return to the cage tonight as a +130 underdog to a -150 Renato Moicano.
The betting lines believe that this bout will be going the distance. The prop bet ‘Fight goes to decision’ is strongly favored at -195, with ‘fight doesn’t go to decision’ being found at plus odds of +160. The over/under for the UFC Fortaleza co-main event has been set at 2.5 rounds. Naturally, the ‘over’ is quite favored at -220, with the ‘under’ being a stout underdog at +180
