Former UFC interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje had an incredible march to his undisputed title shot this past Saturday, despite coming up short against Khabib Nurmagomedov. Gaethje is pure excitement and fans can’t wait to see him back in the Octagon... but who will he face? Online gambling site MyBookie.ag has dropped a list of betting odds for Gaethje’s next possible opponent.
Seven names have been listed altogether, with the longest odds belonging to the now retired Khabib at +2000. Getting to the more realistic options, the current betting favorite of the lot is former champ-champ Conor McGregor, and he can be wagered on for +110. Right behind him is former UFC interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier, whose moneyline is just a tad bit more lucrative at +125. McGregor and Poirier are gearing up for their likely rematch in January of 2021, so it looks as though the odds are pegging the winner of that match to move on and face Gaethje.
Further into underdog territory is another interim champ in Tony Ferguson, who can be picked up at a betting line of +350. A bit of a curve ball on the list is the ever-inactive Nate Diaz, who falls in line just behind Tony at +400. Former Bellator lightweight ruler and UFC newcomer, Michael Chandler, clocks in as a +500 option. Finally, Donald Cerrone rounds out the list with a sizable betting line of +800.
