Two of the best bantamweights in the world will face off this July, and members of NetBet Sportsbook can already place their bet on Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt!
The bad-blood between Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw continues to boil. While the current season of the Ultimate Fighter airs, both these men are training for an eventual showdown on July 8th.
This bout between former training partners is likely the biggest fight in bantamweight history. MMA betting experts around the world are busy analyzing which man is entering with the advantage, and the betting odds for the match are now set. Let’s take a look at who’s coming in as the favorite.
Bet on Cody Garbrandt: 1.64
Cody Garbradnt burst onto the UFC scene in early 2015. In less than 2 years, he racked up five straight victories with 4 of those fighting coming via stoppage. This past December, he earned a shot at then-champion Dominick Cruz and made UK gambling news with the upset victory.
UFC 213 announced fights
- TJ Dillashaw vs. Cody Garbrandt
- Fabricio Werdum vs. Alistair Overeem
- Robbie Lawler vs. Donald Cerrone
- Travis Browne vs. Oleksiy Oliynyk
Not long after winning the title, it was announced that Garbrandt would be coaching the 25th season of the Ultimate Fighter against rival TJ Dillashaw. The two have already feuded on the show, and will finally have their chance to settle the score this summer. If you’re looking to bet on Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt, the odds here might surprise you.
Garbrandt is perhaps the hardest hitter below 145 pounds. Of his 11 wins, 9 have come via KO, and he showed he can go five rounds with one of the best in the world against Cruz. Cody is entering this fight with considerably less experience than Dillashaw, yet is the betting favorite here with odds of 1.64.
Bet on TJ Dillashaw: 2.10
TJ Dillashaw captured the bantamweight title for himself back in May of 2014. He held that title for 1 1/2 years before losing a controversial decision to Dominick Cruz. Since that fight he’s won 2 straight fights, most recently over the incredible dangerous striker John Lineker.
Dillashaw has an incredibly well-rounded game and has rapidly improved his striking game over the past several years working with Duane Ludwig. He’ll need to use his unpredictability against Garbrandt, who’s made a living using only his hands.
As we said before, TJ Dillashaw has nearly twice as many fights as Cody, and has looked better than ever in his past few fights. Most online sportsbooks in the UK offering betting odds for the fight list him as the considerable underdog here with odds of 2.10.
Bet on Alistair Overeem vs. Fabricio Werdum
NetBet Sportsbook is already offering odds to bet on Dillashaw vs. Garbrandt, but before these two men face off, you can place your wager on the co-main event fight between Overeem and Werdum.
Alistair Overeem’s past 5 fights
- Royal Nelson: Win – UD
- Junior Dos Santos: Win – TKO
- Andrei Arlovski: Win – TKO
- Stipe Miocic: Loss – KO
- Mark Hunt: Win – KO
Alistair Overeem nearly won the heavyweight championship this past September before suffering a tough KO loss. He bounced back in a big way in March with a massive KO over legendary striker Mark Hunt. This win likely made him the betting favorite with odds listed at 1.60.
Fabricio Werdum also took a KO loss to Stipe Miocic recently. He made his return just four months later, winning a clear unanimous decision win over Travis Browne. Fabricio wasn’t able to do much when he fought Alistair in 2011, and is the considerable MMA underdog with odds of 2.15.
