The oddsmakers did not wait long to give odds for a potential match between Conor McGregor (22-4) and Kamaru Usman (16-1).
Former double champion McGregor and current welterweight king Usman have been a hot topic in MMA circles in recent days.
Their story started after Jorge Masvidal, otherwise, the first favorite for Usman’s next challenger decided to call Nate Diaz for a rematch. With that, ‘Gamebred’ opened the option for someone else to get a chance to attack the welterweight title, and Usman’s manager Ali Abdelaziz immediately jumped in and offered the match to McGregor:
It looks like #1 contender wants to fight Nate Diaz now . Good for him @TheNotoriousMMA hey you want a title shot ? Come to daddy @USMAN84kg will give you one and he promise first 2 rounds without takedowns only slaps ?— Ali Abdelaziz (@AliAbdelaziz00) May 24, 2020
Although the UFC has not yet commented on this fight, oddsmakers have taken the first steps, so looking at their offers, it can be seen that Usman would be a big favorite in this duel.
Namely, the betting line for Kamarua ranges from -330 to -220, while the one for the famous Irishman ranges from +185 to a tempting +285.
Do you agree with the oddsmakers or are you surprised by such odds?
