Some massive MMA fights will soon take place, and now is the perfect time to bet on the UFC 209 title fights with Bet365.
We’re less than 2 months into 2017, and already some major UFC events have taken place. One of the biggest fight cards of the year will take place on March 4th, and MMA fans can already place their wagers on the title fights.
In the main event, Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson face off for a second straight time after their first bout ended in a controversial draw at UFC 205. Both men will be looking to put an end to their rivalry next weekend, and may who GSP fights in his return.
Bet365 UFC 209 title fight betting odds
- Tyron Woodley: 11/10
- Stephen Thompson: 8/11
- Khabib Nurmagomedov: 8/15
- Tony Ferguson: 13/8
Tyron Woodley won the title at UFC 201 this past July with an emphatic knockout over Robbie Lawler. He technically defended his title for the first time in November, though many UFC betting experts feel the nod should have gone to Thompson. Woodley was the only fighter to ever come close to finishing that fight, yet he is entering the rematch as a slight MMA underdog with Bet365 odds of 11/10.
Stephen Thompson looked unstoppable heading into UFC 205, but couldn’t pull the trigger during the bout and was hurt on a number of occasions. Thompson may be the most creative striker in MMA right now, and may feel more comfortable in the upcoming rematch with Woodley. Anyone looking to bet on the UFC 209 title fights will need to take these two fighters first bout into account, as Thompson is the betting favorite according to most online sportsbooks in the UK with odds of 8/11.
Nurmagomedov vs. Ferguson betting odds
The UFC 209 co-main event is arguably the most anticipated on the card, as undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov and surging Tony Ferguson will face off for the interim lightweight title. These two have been scheduled to fight two times before, and with less than 2 weeks before their fight it seems like they will finally fight. If you’re planning to bet on the UFC 209 title fights, you need to take a look at the betting lines for this fight.
There are not many people signing up to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov. The Dagestani MMA fighter has gone 24-0 in his professional career and 8-0 inside the UFC. Khabib has some of the best wrestling in MMA, and aside from a brief moment in the fight with Michael Johnson, has barely been touched in any fight. It’s not exactly UK gambling news that Nurmagomedov is entering this fight as the betting favorite with odds of 8/15, according to Bet365, which also happens to be one of the best betting sites for India.
Tony Ferguson has rattled off 9 straight wins and will likely earn the next shot at Conor McGregor with a win against Nurmagomedov. One of the best aspects of Ferguson’s game is his incredibly unorthodox style. Despite being an incredible wrestler, Tony often utilizes his elite boxing game and amazing chokes to end fights. Tony is a slight UFC betting underdog with odds of 13/8, but he may have the perfect style to finally give Khabib his first loss.
A bet on the UFC 209 title fights is not just a wager on who will walk away with a new belt. It is also a bet on who will go on to take a huge money fight. The winner of Woodley-Thompson may face GSP next, while the winner of Nurmagomedov and Ferguson will most likely challenge Conor McGregor for the undisputed lightweight title.
