On May 13th, one of the biggest MMA events of the year will take place. Before it starts, let’s take a look at some of the best UFC 211 undercard bets available right now.
The UFC heavyweight and strawweight championship of the world will soon be on the line. Before Miocic and Jedrzejczyk attempt to defend their belts, a number of important undercard bouts will take place. Here we take a look at a few of the best ones you can bet on with BetVictor.
Bet on Sergio Pettis vs. Henry Cejudo
The UFC’s flyweight division is in desperate need of top contenders after Demetrious Johnson’s most recent victory over Wilson Reis. The next challenger for his belt may come in this important matchup between Sergio Pettis and Henry Cejudo.
UFC 211 Fight Card
- Sergio Pettis vs. Henry Cejudo
- Frankie Edgar vs. Yair Rodriguez
- Demian Maia vs. Jorge Masvidal
- Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Jessica Andrade
- Stipe Miocic vs. Junior Dos Santos
Sergio Pettis began his UFC career going 3-2, but has looked unstoppable since losing to Ryan Benoit back in March of 2015. He’s currently riding a three-fight win streak, most recently taking a dominant unanimous decision win over John Moraga. The younger brother of Anthony Pettis is currently ranked number 6 in the rankings, and could earn a title shot with a win here.
Henry Cejudo earned a shot at DJ’s belt back in April of 2016. He was quickly defeated in that bout, and lost a controversial decision to Joseph Benavidez this past December. A win for Cejudo is crucial here, and could put him close to another title bout. Most online sportsbooks in the UK list Pettis as the underdog here with odds of 9/4. Cejudo is the considerable favorite with odds of 1/3.
Bet on Frankie Edgar vs. Yair Rodriguez
Another one of the best UFC 211 undercard bets available right now is on the intriguing matchup between Frankie Edgar and Yair Rodriguez. Edgar lost his second shot at the featherweight belt back at UFC 200, but quickly responded with an impressive win over Jeremy Stephens. Frankie is without a doubt one of the top fighters at 145 pounds, and some MMA betting experts still feel he’s the toughest stylistic matchup for Conor McGregor.
Yair Rodriguez might be the most exciting prospect in MMA. He’s looked incredible since entering the UFC, winning all 6 of his fights with the promotion including highlight-reel KO’s over Andre Fili and BJ Penn.
Likely because of the experience advantage, BetVictor lists Frankie Edgar as the considerable betting favorite with odds of 4/7. Yair Rodriguez would likely be just one fight away from the belt with a win over Frankie Edgar, but he’s taking a massive step up in competition here. His odds to win at UFC 211 are set at 11/8.
Bet on Demian Maia vs. Jorge Masvidal
At the top of the list of UFC 211 undercard bets available right now is the massive welterweight title eliminator fight between Demian Maia and Jorge Masvidal. After his quick win over Carlos Condit, Demian Maia seemed like a shoe-in to fight for the belt. A series of unfortunate events led him to this fight with Masvidal, and if victorious he will surely get his crack at the title.
Jorge Masvidal’s move to welterweight didn’t appear to be a good one at first, as he went 1-2 in the weight class. He’s now riding a 3-fight win streak, with an incredibly impressive victory over Donald Cerrone in his last outing. Jorge is without a doubt one of the most talented fighters in the UFC today, and appears to have finally found his groove inside the octagon.
Of all the fights taking place at UFC 211, this one is the hardest to call. Maia is without a doubt the best grappler at 170 pounds, but Masvidal has some of the best takedown defense in the entire division. Maia is entering as the betting favorite with odds of 8/11. Masvidal’s odds to make UK gambling news with a win are set at 11/10.
