It’s just about time for UFC Vegas 26 to go down from the company’s APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. The top of the card is getting a makeshift main event in the form of the UFC’s #6 rated strawweight, Marina Rodriguez, vs. the #9 rated, Michelle Waterson — but at 125-pounds. Bloody Elbow is here to hook you up with the betting odds for this meeting of top-ranked fighters, as well as for the rest of the UFC Vegas 26 lineup.

The oddsmakers are strongly favoring Rodriguez to come out victorious here against Waterson. With a minus line of -200, a successful $100 gamble on Marina would see a total return of $150. That leaves Michelle posted up in the underdog spot. With a straight up moneyline of +170, a winning wager on Waterson would see a payout of $270 altogether.

According to the odds, this five-rounder will be lasting the entire 25-minutes. The prop bet ‘Fight goes to decision’ can be found with a favored line of -205, with a +165 comeback on the ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ option.

Waterson has been involved in seven straight decisions, with the last time she had a scrap ending early coming back in 2017 when the UFC was still on FOX. Yes, Rodriguez finished Amanda Ribas in her last fight, but all of her other five UFC matches went the distance — including TWO draws.

Just so you know, the exotic bet ‘Fight is a draw’ is positioned with an enticing +5000 betting line, with ‘Fight is not a draw’ clocking in at an absurdly favored line of -12500.
