UFC 257 is right around the corner, January 23rd, with the headliner seeing “The Notorious” Conor McGregor running it back with Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier — but this time at 155-pounds. Since the betting lines first opened for this fight, Conor (-290) has been heavily favored to get the better of Poirier (+260) and not much has changed in that regard. What is new is this list of unorthodox prop bets from online gambling site SportsBetting.ag surrounding this highly anticipated rematch.
Among the unusual exotics being offered up is the ‘Length of Bruce Buffer’s introduction,’ with the over/under being listed at 164.5 seconds. The website states that this will count from the first word from Bruce Buffer, after McGregor and Poirier have entered the Octagon, until the end of the last word. It also notes that the book manager’s decision is final, so keep that in mind as well. Both the ‘Over 164.5’ and ‘Under 164.5’ options are being offered up at -120 a piece.
Not all of the available props are as wholesome as the aforementioned. Also on deck is the bet ‘Will either fighter be knocked or submitted unconscious?’ According to these odds, we are not in store for a clean knockout or a tech-sub by way of strangulation. The ‘No’ wager is heavily favored at -500, with a +350 comeback on the ‘Yes’ selection. There’s also a bet for which fighter will be the first to shed some plasma. For the first to bleed prop, Dustin Poirier is strongly favored at -260, with a +200 comeback on Conor McGregor.
