UFC 251 Updated Odds & Fight Card

Kamaru Usman, Jorge Masvidal officially set as main event for UFC 251 after George Burns tests positive for Covid-19.

UFC 251 has a new main event and it’s going to be great!

After Gilbert Burns withdrew from UFC 251’s main event title fight against current champ Kamaru Usman at the last minute, everyone assumed it would be the end of the event.

But not so.

Dana White pulled a Jorge Masvidal sized rabbit out of his hat to setup what could be the fight of the decade.

Masvidal was cleared for UFC 251 after passing a mandatory COVID-19 test. Now the man they call Street Jesus will step in on less than a week’s notice to face welterweight champion Kamaru Usman in Abu Dhabi on Sunday morning (Saturday night stateside).

UFC 251 Fight Island Odds

The UFC has been on fire since its return from the pandemic layoff. UFC 251 is set to raise the bar on Fight Island.

In the main event welterweight champion Kamaru Usman will defend his title against challenger Gilbert Burns. In the co-main event, Alexander Volkanovski takes on veteran Max Holloway in a rematch of their 2019 showdown. That’s not all. Also on fighting on Fight Island are Petr Yan and former 145-pound champion Jose Aldo who throw down for the vacant bantamweight title.

Last, but not least, the UFC 251 main card will also include a women’s strawweight rematch between former champions Rose Namajunas and Jessica Andrade, along with a second 115-pound bout between Paige VanZant and Amanda Ribas.

Now, let’s take a closer look at the top UFC 251 fights and the betting odds for the fighters.

UFC 251 Fight Island Odds

Kamaru Usman (16-1) vs. Gilbert Burns (19-3)

  • Gilbert Burns +180
  • Kamaru Usman -210

33-year-old Brazilian Gilbert Burns is back in the octagon less than a month after beating Tyron Woodley via unanimous decision in their Fight Night showdown on May 30. Burns is a pretty well-rounded fighter that has recorded six wins via KO, eight via submission and five by way of decision.

For his effort, Burns will face reigning welterweight champ Kamaru Usman who took out Colby Covington via fifth round TKO (punches) at UFC 245 in December. The 33-year-old Nigerian native has won 15 straight fights dating back to 2013 and is the clear-cut favorite in this affair, particularly seeing as how Burns is making an incredibly quick showing after going the distance just a few weeks ago.

Alexander Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway (21-9)

  • Max Holloway +150
  • Alexander Volkanovski -170

28-year-old Hawaiian Max Holloway is a former featherweight champ, but he’s dropped two of his last three fights including a unanimous decision loss against the 31-year-old Alexander Volkanovski at their UFC 245 championship bout in December. For his part, Volkanovski has won a phenomenal 18 consecutive fights, although he hasn’t faced many ‘big name’ fighters along the way. Holloway had successfully defended the featherweight championship three times and he put up a great effort in their first fight before failing to get the decision. Make no mistake about it, this pairing could easily be the most competitive fight on the entire UFC 251 card.

Petr Yan (14-1) vs. Jose Aldo (28-6)

  • Jose Aldo +250
  • Petr Yan -300

33-year-old Brazilian Jose Aldo will be relatively desperate to get back in the win column after losing his last two fights including a stunning split decision loss against the unheralded Marlon Morales at UFC 245 in December. Let it be known that Aldo has lost four of his last six fights overall with two of those defeats coming to Max Holloway via TKO’s (punches). 27-year-old Russian Petr Yan has won nine straight fights including a brutal third round KO (head kick) of former champion Urijah Faber at UFC 245 in December.

While Aldo is still in his prime, he also has the look of a fading fighter while Yan has been on fire for quite some time, although the list of fighters he’s faced over his last nine bouts doesn’t include any household names outside of the aging Faber.

Rose Namajunas (8-4) vs. Jessica Andrade (20-7)

  • Jessica Andrade +175
  • Rose Namajunas -200

28-year-old Brazilian Jessica Andrade had her four-fight winning streak snapped in her stunning first round TKO (knees and punches) loss to reigning strawweight champ Zhang Weili at their Fight Night matchup in August. The good news is that she beat Namajunas for the strawweight title in May of last year at UFC 237 with the win coming by way of a vicious KO (slam) in the second round.

27-year-old Milwaukee native Rose Namajunas had her three-fight winning streak snapped while losing the strawweight title against Andrade in her last bout. While Namajunas has age her on her side (slightly) she’s facing an uphill battle to take out an opponent that completely dominated her when they last met.

Paige VanZant (8-4) vs. Amanda Ribas (9-1)

  • Paige VanZant +310
  • Amanda Ribas -390

26-year-old Oregon native Paige VanZant got back in the win column by beating Rachael Ostovich via second round submission (armbar) at the UFC Fight Night matchup in January. VanZant had lost three of four before that bout and is really more well-known for her good looks than her actual fighting ability. 27-year-old Brazilian Amanda Ribas has won four straight bouts since suffering her only career loss back in 2015. Ribas took out Randa Markos at their UFC Fight Night matchup via unanimous decision in March. Along with the Holloway and Volkanovski matchup, this bout could be the most competitive on the entire UFC 251 card.

After recently completing a stretch where the organization put on three fight cards in eight days including one action-packed pay-per-view card, the UFC is back in Las Vegas. Click here for updated UFC 250 odds.

Dual-division champion Amanda Nunes will put her women’s featherweight championship on the line against Felicia Spencer in the headline bout of UFC 250. In the co-headline bout former champion Cody Garbrandt will take on Raphael Assuncao. Now, let’s look at the entire UFC 250 card.

UFC 250 Odds, Fight Card, Schedule, How To Watch

Felicia Spencer +440
Amanda Nunes -580

Nunes, (19-4) who turns 32-years-old on Saturday, holds both, the featherweight and bantamweight titles. She’s won 10 straight fights dating back to 2015. After beating Meisha Tate for the bantamweight title and dispatching the once, legendary Ronda Rousey in her first defense, Nunes has reeled off notable wins over the likes of Cris Cyborg for the featherweight title, Holly Holm and most recently, Germaine de Randamie at UFC 245.

29-year-old Canadian Felicia Spencer (8-1) rebounded from her only career loss against Cyborg at UFC 240 to beat Zarah Fairn Dos Santos via first round TKO (punches and elbows) in February. Spencer won the Invicta FC featherweight title in November 2018, but this will be the biggest fight of her career. 

Raphael Assuncao +115
Cody Garbrandt -135

37-year-old Brazilian Raphael Assuncao (27-7) will be looking to snap a two-fight losing streak that includes a unanimous decision loss against Cory Sandhagen at UFC 241 in August. 28-year-old veteran Cody Garbrandt (11-3) 

won the bantamweight title with a unanimous decision win over Dominick Cruz back in 2016, but since then, he’s lost three straight. After suffering a pair of consecutive TKO losses against T.J. Dillashaw, Garbrandt  suffered his third straight stoppage loss by getting knocked out in the first round (punches) against Pedro Munhoz in March of 2019. 

Cory Sandhagen -110
Aljamain Sterling -110

30-year-old Aljamain Sterling (18-3) has won four consecutive fights including a unanimous decision win over Pedro Munhoz at UFC 238 in June. 28-year-old Cory Sandhagen (12-1) comes into UFC 250 on a red-hot roll, having won seven straight fights including a unanimous decision win over Raphael Assuncao at UFC 241 in August.

Eddie Wineland +330
Sean O’Malley -410

35-year-old Eddie Wineland (24-13) comes into UFC 250 off a thrilling second round TKO (punches) win over Grigory Popov in June, but prior to that, Wineland lost two straight and four of his previous six fights overall. 25-year-old fan-favorite Sean O’Malley (11-0) remained unbeaten by pounding Jose Alberto Quinonez senseless en route to a stunning first round TKO (head kick and punches) win at UFC 248 in March. 

Alex Caceres +120
Chase Hopper -140

31-year-old Alex Caceres (15-12) comes into UFC 250 off a unanimous decision win over Steven Peterson last July, but he’s alternated wins and losses over his last six fights while going an uninspiring 5-7 over his last dozen fights. 

20-year-old Chase ‘The Teenage Dream’ Hopper (9-0-1) has won three straight and comes into this affair off a stunning first round TKO (elbows and punches) win over Daniel Teymur at UFC 245 in December. 

Gerald Meerschaert +105
Ian Heinisch -125

32-year-old Gerald Meerschaert (30-12) comes into UFC 250 off a third round submission (rear-naked choke) win over Deron Winn at UFC 248 in March, but prior to that, he lost three of four, though two of those losses were split decision defeats. 31-year-old Ian Heinisch (13-3) will look to snap a two-fight losing streak that includes a unanimous decision loss against Omari Akhmedov at UFC 245 in December. 

Brian Kelleher +205
Cody Stamann -245

33-year-old Brian Kelleher (21-10) has won two straight via stoppage including a second round KO (punches) win over Hunter Azure on May 13. 30-year-old Cody Stamann (18-2) comes into UFC 250 off a majority draw against Song Yadong in December but Song was deducted a point in the first round for an illegal knee. 

Maki Pitolo +150
Charles Byrd -170

29-year-old Maki Pitolo (12-5) had his three-fight winning streak snapped in his unanimous decision loss against Callan Potter at UFC 243 in October. 36-year-old veteran Charles Byrd (10-6) has dropped two straight fights via stoppage losses including a first round TKO (elbows and punches) loss against Edmen Shahbazyan at UFC 235 in March of 2019. 

Jussier Formiga +120
Alex Perez -140

35-year-old Jussier Formiga (23-7) has suffered two straight losses including a unanimous decision defeat against Brandon Moreno on March 14. 28-year-old Alex Perez (23-5) has won two straight and comes into UFC 250 off a stunning first round technical submission (arm-triangle choke) win over Jordan Espinosa in January. 

Devin Clark +185
Alonzo Menifield -225

30-year-old Devin Clark (11-4) comes into UFC 250 off a unanimous decision win over Dequan Townsend in February, but it should be noted that he’s also alternated wins and losses over his last seven fights. 32-year-old Alonzo Menifield (9-0) looks to remain unbeaten after pounding Paul Craig into submission via first round KO (punches) in June to record his eight KO finish in nine career fights.

UFC Fight Night 176 Woodley vs Burns Fight Card, Odds, Date, Location How To Watch

UFC is back in Las Vegas for UFC Fight Night 176 Woodley vs Burns after months of coronavirus delays. Or we hope. The Nevada State Athletic Commission still has to give its ok, but at this point that may just be a formality. UFC Fight Night 176 is slated to go down at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 30th.

The UFC Fight Night 176 headliner features the No. 6-ranked welterweight, Gilbert Burns facing the former champion Tyron Woodley. Burns called for Woodley after his last fight that ended when he dropped submission specialist Demian Maia with a deafening left hook in March for his fifth straight win. This is Woodley first fight since losing his belt to Kamaru Usman 15 months ago. Before that loss the former champ was on a seven fight win streak and was one of the most elite 170-pound fighters in history. But at 38 years of age how much gas does he left in tank?

Odds & Analysis UFC 249 Ferguson-Gaethje

Love him or hate him, Dana White is finally getting UFC 249 off the ground after failing to launch twice. Click here for updated UFC 249 odds. Last Friday the UFC announced that UFC 249 will take place on Saturday, May 9th at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. And Dana White isn’t planning on disappointing. He has lined up a stacked card headlined by an interim lightweight title fight between Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje.

COVID-19 forced UFC 249 to be postponed twice. First with Khabib Nurmagomedov defending his lightweight title against Ferguson in Brooklyn. The second after Gaethje stepped in for Khabib UFC and the event was set for Lemoore, California. The state governor went above White’s head to Disney, ESPN’s parent company, and asked UFC 249 not to be broadcast.

Now with Florida starting to open up with the state governor’s blessing, there is little standing in the way of UFC 249. You can watch the main card via ESPN+ Pay-Per-View. The preliminaries will be on both ESPN and streamed on ESPN+.

UFC 249 Betting Odds & Analysis

No. 10 middleweight Uriah Hall (16-9) has won two straight including a split decision win over Antonio Carlos Junior in September.

Donald Cerrone +110
Anthony Pettis -130

The preliminary bouts are headlined by a welterweight fight between Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (36-14) and Anthony “Showtime” Pettis (22-10).

The UFC is steamrolling ahead with its UFC 249 PPV event on April 18th just as Dana White had promised. Click here for live odds.

The highly anticipated lightweight title headliner between champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson was scrapped after Khabib was stranded in his native Dagestan due to Russia’s pandemic lockdown. But White wasn’t going to let not having a main event or location stop him.

First, he tagged fan favorite Justin Gaethje to replace Khabib on short notice to fight Ferguson for an interim belt. The winner will most likely get a shot at Khabib next as early as August.

But after securing the main event and a fight location on short notice new broke last night of co-main event being canceled. Former UFC women’s strawweight champion Rose Namajunas withdrew bout with Jessica Andrade for undisclosed reasons.

Hopefully, with no more changes, 5Dimes oddsmakers have released prop betting odds for each fight as well. Keep reading for a complete look.

UFC 249 Odds and Preview

UFC 249 is set to go down on tribal land in central California this month. This is an obvious end-run around widespread federal and state guidelines against holding large gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic. UFC head honcho Dana White is also in talks of purchasing a private island to hold regular events after UFC 249 in a Mortal Kombat/Hunger Games-style mashup.

That was not the only obstacle to getting UFC 249 off the ground. Last week the original main event star, Khabib Nurmagomedov, had to pull out after being unable to escape Russia’s COVID-19 lockdown. White was able to secure a last-minute replacement in Justin Gaethje to face Tony Ferguson.

UFC 249 Main Event Odds & Analysis

  • Justin Gaethje +140
  • Tony Ferguson -170

Arizona native and lightweight veteran Justin Gaethje is 31-years-old and stands 5’11” with a 70-inch reach. He’s gone 21-2 in his career with 18 wins coming by way of KO, one via submission and two by way of decision. He’s also suffered two career losses with both defeats coming by way of knockouts. Gaethje has won three straight, including a pair of first-round KO wins over James Vick and Edson Barboza and an even more impressive first-round TKO (punches) over widely respected veteran Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at UFC Fight Night: Cowboy vs. Gaethje in September.

36-year-old Californian Tony Ferguson (25-3) stands 5’11” with a 76.5-inch reach. The former interim Lightweight Champion. The veteran has recorded 12 KO wins in his career, eight via submission and five via decision. He’s also been on the wrong end of one submission loss and two decision losses. Ferguson has won a stellar 12 consecutive fights and comes into this affair off a second-round TKO (doctor stoppage) win over Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at UFC 238 in June after stopping veteran Anthony Pettis at UFC 229 via the exact same TKO (doctor stoppage) win.

UFC Main Card Odds & Analysis

  • Jessica Andrade +185
  • Rose Namajunas -225

28-year-old Brazilian Jessica Andrade (20-7) stands 5’1 ½” and has a 62-inch reach. The veteran who won the strawweight championship over Namajunas via second-round KO (slam) in May of 2019, comes into this matchup off a crushing first-round TKO (knees and punches) loss against now, reigning champ Zhang Weili on March 7, just prior to sports being brought to a stunning halt as a whole because of the global coronavirus pandemic.

27-year-old Wisconsin native Rose Namajunas (8-4) stands 5’5” with a 65-inch reach. The former strawweight champion has recorded five wins via submission, one by way of KO and two via decision. She’s also been on the wrong end of one KO loss, one submission loss and a pair of decision losses.

  • Yorgan de Castro +150
  • Greg Hardy -170

32-year-old Portugal native Yorgan de Castro (6-0) is 5’11” and comes into this matchup off an impressive first-round KO win over Justin Tafa at UFC 243 in October. Former NFL defensive lineman Greg Hardy (5-2-0, 1 NC) is 31-years-old and stands 6’5”. He comes into this affair off a tough, unanimous decision loss against Alexander Volkov at UFC on ESPN 21 in November.

  • Niko Price +190
  • Vicente Luque -250

28-year-old New Jersey native Vincente Luque (17-7) is 5’11 and has a 75.5-inch reach. Luque had won six straight until losing to veteran Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson at UFC 244 in November. Ironically, that same six-match winning streak started with a second-round submission win over Price in October of 2017.

30-year-old Niko Price (14-3-1, 1 NC) stands 6’0” and comes into this bout off a thrilling first round KO (upkick) win over James Vick in October that earned him Performance of the Night honors. The bad news is that Price has alternated wins and losses over his last four fights while going 3-4 over his last seven.

  • Jeremy Stephens +190
  • Calvin Kattar -230

31-year-old Iowa native Jeremy Stephens (28-17) stands 5’8½” with a 71-inch reach.

He comes into this bout off a hard-fought unanimous decision loss against Zabit Magomedsharipov in November.

UFC 251 Updated Odds & Fight Card

UFC 246 Fight Card, Odds, Analysis

UFC is starting its 2020 campaign by brining its most infamous fighter back to the octagon.

UFC 246 Fight Card, Odds, Analysis

Conor “Notorious” McGregor (21-4) will fight for the second time since 2016 when he faces veteran Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (36-13, 1 NC) in a welterweight main event from T-Mobile Arena.

UFC 246 Main Card Odds

Conor McGregor -310 vs. Donald Cerrone +255

The 36-year-old Cowboy Cerrone stands 6’1” with a 73-inch reach and he’s definitely got the edge in experience with a whopping 50 career fights. He’s a well-rounded fighter that has recorded 10 wins via KO, 17 wins via submission and nine victories by way of decision. Unfortunately, Cerrone has dropped each of his last two fights including an embarrassing first round KO loss to Justin Gaethje on September 14.

Conor McGregor is 31-years-old and stands 5’9” with a 74-inch reach. The polarizing welterweight hasn’t been in the octagon since suffering a submission loss (neck crack) against Khabib Nurmagaomedov in their lightweight title bout on October 6 of 2018. McGregor has lost two of his last four fights.

Holly Holm 135 vs. Raquel Pennington +115

38-year-old Holly Holm stands 5’8’ with a 70-inch reach. The former bantamweight champ recorded one of the biggest upsets in UFC history by beating the hell out of Ronda Rousey, but she then went on to lose three straight and five of her last seven matches including a humbling first round TKO (head kick) loss to reigning champ Amanda Nunes at UFC 239 in July. 31-year-old Raquel Pennington stands 5’7” with a 67½-inch reach. Pennington went to the fifth round against Nunes back in May of 2018 but followed that loss up with a decision loss against Germaine de Randamie in November of 2018. Pennington did manage to get the split decision win over Irene Aldana in July, but she also lost to Holm via split decision at UFC 184 back in February of 2015.

Maurice Greene -130 vs. Aleksei Oleinik +110

The 42-year-old Aleksei Oleinik stands 6’2” with an 80-inch reach, but he’s lost each of his last two fights including an embarrassing first round KO loss (punch) to Walt Harris in July. Maurice Greene is 33-years-old and stands 6’7” with an 82-inch reach. Greene had his three-fight winning streak snapped in his embarrassing first round KO loss (punches) against Sergei Pavlovich in October, but he looks like the easy pick to get past a past-his-prime Oleinik at UFC 246.

Claudia Gadelha -105 vs. Alexa Grasso -115

Claudia Gadelha is 31-years-old and stands 5’4”. Gadelha comes into this bout having alternated wins and losses over her last four fights, but managed to get past Randa Markos at UFC 239 in July via unanimous decision. Alexa Grasso is 26-years-old and stands 5’5”. Grasso has alternated wins and losses over her last six fights and comes into this affair off a close, majority decision loss against Carla Esparza in September. These two fighters might have even odds, but Claudia Gadelha looks like the pick here based on experience and superior punching power.

Diego Ferreira -245 vs. Anthony Pettis +205

32-year-old Anthony Pettis stands 5’10” with a 72½ inch reach. The former lightweight champion is undeniably one of the most explosive mixed martial arts fighters in the world and he should be highly motivated to get the win here after losing seven of his last 11 fights including a unanimous decision defeat against Nate Diaz at UFC 241 in August. 34Year-ood Diego Ferreira stands 5’9” with a 74-inch reach. Ferreira has won five straight fights including a unanimous decision win over Maribek Taisumov at UFC 242 in September. While Ferreira has a nice winning streak going coming into this affair, he’s definitely never fought a fighter of Anthony Pettis’ caliber. I’m going with the popular Pettis to put on a show to potentially get back in the mix for a title shot in 2020.

Conor McGregor vs. Donald Cerrone

McGregor’s last trip to the octogon at UFC 229 ended in a loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov for the the Khabib’s lightweight championship. The post-fight brawl after that loss led to an six-month suspension for McGregor. He would sit out all of 2019 before booking this bout with Cerrone. UFC president Dana White confirmed that a lightweight title shot awaits the Irishman if he wins this fight at welterweight.

Cerrone has fought 10 times since 2016 taking on all challengers however he is on a two fight losing streak. Those two losses were a TKO via doctor stoppage against Tony Ferguson in June and KO at the hands of Justin Gaethje in September.

Holly Holm vs. Raquel Pennington

The co-main event is a rematch after Holm defeated Pennington by split decision at UFC 184 on Feb. 28, 2015. This bout was originally set for UFC 243 in October before Holm was forced to withdraw due to injury.
