It’s fight day for the super-stacked UFC 259 card, which goes down this evening (March 6th) from the company’s APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. Bloody Elbow is here to drop you the final betting odds for this card, including three UFC title fights and twelve three-rounders. Oh, and if the bookies are correct, then the winners of the UFC’s light heavyweight, women’s featherweight, and bantamweight belts will all be decided inside the distance. Yay!
The odds are favoring UFC middleweight champ, Israel Adesanya, to successfully move up in weight to take the 205-pound strap from Jan Blachowicz in the main event. Adesanya holds a strongly favored line of -215, with the champ cemented as a +202 underdog. This contest is not expected to last all 25-minutes. The prop bet ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ is being favored at a cost of -180, with a +150 comeback on the ‘Fight goes to decision’ option.
As expected, double-champ Amanda Nunes is a massive betting favorite over challenger Megan Anderson. Around -615 is about as good of a deal as you’re going to get on the “The Lioness,” with Anderson clocking in as a colossal +750 dog. This title fight owns the card’s widest inside the distance betting line. At a mere cost of -610, you can pick up ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision,’ or opt for the sizable +425 underdog tag for the ‘Fight goes to decision’ prop.
The third title fight on the UFC 259 PPV main card is slated to be the most tightly contested, at least in terms of the betting odds. The defending 135-pound king, Petr Yan, is barely favored over his challenger, Aljamain Sterling. Yan’s most attractive moneyline is sitting at the -111 mark, with Aljo being found as a slight underdog anywhere from -110 up to +105. Although this is a pick’em fight, it has also been projected to finish early. The exotic bet ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ can be had at a slightly favored cost of -130, with ‘Fight goes to decision’ lurking at +100 even money.
