UPDATE: Blaydes vs. Lewis has been cancelled due to Blaydes testing positive for COVID-19, is is presumed Anthony Smith vs Devin Clark will be elevated from the Co-Main and become the new headliner for the event.
It’s time for UFC Vegas 15, which kicks off this November 28th from the promotion’s APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. The top of the billing is getting
a ranked collision of the heavyweight persuasion when the #2 rated, Curtis Blaydes, gets busy with the #4 ranked, Derrick Lewis a light heavy a light heavyweight tilt between the UFC’s #6 ranked 205-pounder, Anthony Smith, and the 12-4 Devin Clark. Bloody Elbow is here with the betting lines for this replacement main event, as well as for the rest of the UFC Vegas 15 matchups.
The oddsmakers are siding with the former UFC title challenger here, but not by much. Smith is currently sitting with a slightly favored moneyline of -130, with a $100 bet paying out $176.92. As for the unranked Clark, he is being offered up as a +115 underdog, with a $100 bet paying out $215.
Smith is looking to rebound after the 2020 calendar year has shown him consecutive losses, first a brutal beating at the hands of Glover Teixeira, and then more recently a decision loss to Aleksandar Rakic. Clark is in the opposite situation, having picked up back to back decision wins this year. It should be noted that the level of competition experienced by theses two are vastly different. Smith has been fighting elite competition, but isn’t exactly trustworthy at this stage in his career. That’s not to say that trusting Clark is any more of a good idea, because he has never won three-straight UFC bouts in his four-year tenure with the promotion. A tight line here seems legit.
