The two new fights added to UFC 207, in addition to the return of Ronda Rousey, make this event one of the biggest in the history of the UFC.
The next few months should be good for business in the UFC. In just over three weeks, one of the biggest fights cards in history will take place for the first time in New York City, and less than two months after that, Ronda Rousey returns to the cage for the first time in over a year to take on Amanda Nunes at UFC 207.
Just yesterday, US gambling news broke that there have been two new fights added to UFC 207, and both have fans excited. The first fight will take place between Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum in a rematch of their bout last year. The winner of this fight is almost guaranteed to get a shot at current champion Stipe Miocic.
The second major fight at UFC 207 will actually feature a title on the line, as bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz takes on top contender Cody Garbrandt. Cruz made one of the most incredible comebacks in MMA history by returning to the cage after over three years and winning the title. Garbrandt has had a meteoric rise up the bantamweight rankings, going 5-0 in the UFC with four fights coming by KO.
What are the betting lines for these fights?
The two new fights added to UFC 207 have just been announced, and most online sportsbooks in the US have not yet released the betting lines. Bovada has already released the Rousey vs. Nunes betting odds, with Rousey coming in as a slight favorite at -185 and Nunes the underdog with odds of +150.
It will likely take only a couple days for the betting lines to come out for these two fights. It seems likely that Cruz will be the major betting favorite against Garbrandt, but it’s anyone’s guess who will be favored in the fight between Werdum and Velasquez.
