McGregor vs. Ferguson betting odds
Conor McGregor won the UFC lightweight belt back in November of 2015 and hasn’t competed in MMA since. Of course, he took on Floyd Mayweather in a historic boxing match this past August, and according to most sources he will be returning to the UFC Octagon sometime in late 2017/early 2018.
Conor’s skill in the cage is unquestionable, and at the moment most online sportsbooks in the US list him as the favorite against Tony Ferguson. Unibet Sportsbook lists his odds to win at 1.62.
In many MMA betting experts’ opinion, Tony Ferguson is one of the toughest stylistic matches for Conor McGregor. He’s got extremely skilled striking but it’s his submission game that’s earned him the majority of his victories. Now, Ferguson’s odds to beat McGregor are currently set at 2.20.
