UFC 260 goes down this Saturday (March 27th) from the promotion’s APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. The top of the billing is getting a rematch between the defending heavyweight champion, Stipe Miocic, and the once again challenging, Francis Ngannou. Bloody Elbow is here to bring you the betting lines for this high stakes clash of giants, as well as for the rest fo the UFC 260 lineup.
We’ve got a pick’em fight in the main event! The ever-scary Ngannou is being offered up around the -115 mark, with Miocic being found anywhere from -110 up to +120. The first time these big men faced off, which was at UFC 220 back in 2018, Francis was a -190 betting favorite to Stipe’s underdog tag of +150. The defending champ went on to grind out a five-round decision. Since then, Miocic lost his belt to Daniel Cormier, just to win it right back and then beat DC again in their trilogy fight. As for Ngannou, he put on one of the worst fights in UFC history against Derrick Lewis, followed by four of the most frightening first-round finishes you will ever see.
That sort of ferocious firepower cannot be overlooked, and despite their first fight lasting all 25-minutes, the bookies believe that this time around will be ending a lot sooner. The prop bet ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ is holding a heavily favored moneyline of -435, with a +325 comeback on the ‘Fight goes to decision’ option. Also, let’s not forget how lethal Stipe can be. He earned a knockout in 15 of his 20 wins.
