UFC 252 - ‘MIOCIC VS. CORMIER 3 takes place tonight (August 15th) from the promotion’s APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. We’ve got Stipe Miocic defending his heavyweight belt against Daniel Cormier to fulfill their trilogy in the main event. Maybe more importantly than the belt, the winner of this contest will cement their legacy as the heavyweight G.O.A.T. (according to Dana White). Bloody Elbow is here to bring you the betting odds for this history making matchup, and the rest of the UFC 252 lineup.

As we learned in our midweek betting odds post, Stipe opened up as a -130 favorite to DC’s underdog tick of -110, but then quickly flipped. Cormier is still holding on as a slight favorite, hovering around the -115 mark. Miocic is still on deck as an underdog, trending with a moneyline of -105. Online gambling site BetDSI is the only place left that has Stipe with a plus line, barely there at +100.

The over/under for this 25-minute championship contest has been set at 2.5 rounds. The ‘Over’ is available at a favored line of -135, with the “Under’ wager sitting with an underdog value of +115. These two-men have yet to spend 25-minutes together in an Octagon without someone getting stopped. The prop bet ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ has pulled away a bit further to an even stronger label of -245. The ‘Fight goes to decision’ exotic has grown to a +185 dog.

The score stands at one knockout a piece heading into this rubber match. Gamblers will find that ‘Miocic wins inside distance’ can be scooped up for +145, or ‘Miocic wins by TKO/KO’ for a better return of +185. For the challenger, the proposition ‘Cormier wins inside distance’ can be acquired at a value of +180, with the ‘Cormier wins by TKO/KO’ offering a stronger payout at +260.
